I really enjoyed reading this book, Philippa has written a brilliant debut novel she has proven to have a real writing flair, her two main characters are very endearing you are cheering for them throughout the book that they will make it together. Philippa has done a great job in writing a story that is funny and witty I found some of the dialogue from Jeaunette hilarious, she was definately a character I related to and Philippa has done a great job in making her very realistic and likable. I loved the story and the will they won't they make it and all the obstacles that get in their way, it certainly made for a book you didn't want to put down you were dying to know what would happen with Tomas & Jeaunette. It is a well written, funny, smart and honest account of the rocky road of romance and relationships. If you like chick lit and good old romance novels with a bit of oomph then you should read 'A Simple Love Story' I truly recommend it after all don't all us girls want ourselves a Tomas with a glass of Chardonnay on the side!.
