My Year of Saying NoMy Year of Saying No by Maxine Morrey

4.13  · 
Lottie Wentworth has never been more pleased to hear Big Ben ring in the new year and wave goodbye to The Year of Saying Yes!When a long-term relationship ended, her best friend’s scheme to get Lottie back in the swing of things seemed like a good idea. She’s kept her promise to Jess to see it through but, as a lover of the quiet life, Lottie couldn’t be happier to say hello to a brand new year – The Year of Saying No!

Unfortunately, the one thing she still seems unable to say no to is the crush she has on her best client and now friend, Army veteran, Seb Marshall. But she’s working on it, and with rescue dog Humphrey at her side, she knows that she’ll manage just fine.

Lottie’s decision to stop trying to please everyone has brought a sense of relief beyond what she had expected. Her actions and determination have also begun to send ripples throughout her life and those closest to her, bringing about changes none of them could have expected.

My review:

My year of saying no by Maxine Morrey was the first book I ever read by this author, and man what a ride it was!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the characters, the friendships, the writing style, the plot and the pacing.

I did think the first chapter was weird, but once I got into the second chapter it only seemed like a small hiccup. I wish the first chapter could have been it’s own book because I did say “Wait, what’s going on?” but then I understood the point of it after.

I really liked the main character and how others viewed her. Also, there’s dogs. Dogs automatically make stories better.

I was very pleased to discover that I had two other books by Maxine Morrey because I now want to  read all of her books, even her Christmas one that I have. Despite the minor hiccup, this was a five star rating and I definitely recommend this for fans of Sophie Kinsella or just romance in general.

Thank you Netgalley for giving me the chance to read and review this. This had no impact on my thoughts, my thoughts and opinions are my own.


Thank you for reading!
