You, Me and the Movies by Fiona Collins(2 Posts)
That's weird! I've just bought that book today in Sainsbury's. I might start it later. I love she's a mumsnetter!
A bit of a disclaimer here: Fiona and I met on Mumsnet in the Creative Writing section, so I've read an early copy of this novel. She's still a regular here and both of us spend far too much time talking about threads. She started off writing rom coms and this new book is a bit of a change of direction - although it is a romance and it is very funny (I don't think she can help that - everything she writes is funny.) This book, though, is also very poignant and had me in tears more than once.
It's also 99p on Kindle and available on Amazon and in Sainsburys and other bookshops.
So that I don't write any spoilers, I've copied the blurb from Amazon:
When Arden meets Mac she quickly falls for the handsome, charismatic film lecturer. Their love is the sort you see in movies: dramatic, exciting and all-consuming… and complicated.
A love like theirs could never last.
But years later, whilst visiting a friend in hospital, Arden sees the one face she could never forget. Badly injured, Mac can only make brief references to the classic films they once watched together. Which is all it takes for Arden to remember everything…
If you love movies and the eighties, you'll love this book.
