Truly, Madly, Deeply, You by Cecilia Robert

Goodreads Summary: Four days before Valentine’s Day, Liese Hansfeld is determined to shut the door to her house, as well as her heart, for her annual four days of mourning her one true love. Little does she know her best friend Freytag Meier is just as determined to keep her from her ritual. He’s ready to pick the lock to her apartment door and camp in her living room if that’s what it takes.

What Freytag isn’t prepared for is the surge of deep-rooted emotions he feels for Liese, but two things stand in his way: the grief and guilt she still clutches close to her heart, and a man who threatens to snatch Liese from under Frey’s watchful eye. Frey is determined to distract her into forgetting her pain. But is that enough to ease her grief, or help her see he can be more than her best friend?

My Views: Hmm, this was a quick read but I wish it wasn’t.

The book started off really well with so many questions to be answered and I got hooked. The writing was beautiful and I liked the story – a soft, romantic, cute story as it appeared to me.

But towards the latter half of the book, I realized that nothing more was going to happen. This was it! And I hated that. This book appeared more like a starting point for another rather than the complete book itself.

There was a plot, it could have been extended, there could have been turns and twists, but there aren’t any. The sort of surprise or the mystery angle is so clear in the first half itself that there really seems no need to read the full book.

The writer has extreme potential, I like the writing style but I wish there was more…

Don’t go looking for a plot. If you want a comfy, cuddly read, this may be the one for you.

2/5 stars – It was OK.



Often seen with a nose buried in a book, you might spy me at a library while 500 unread books adorn my shelf. At other times, I'm busy travelling solo, eating out or looking for my new escapades. You will always find me doing too much all at once.

  1. Aww, no. That’s kind of disappointing… I’ve been really curious about it, but I’m not sure if I’ll be picking it up… sounds like it would be too easy, short and contemporary for me. :/
