This book took a little bit of time for me to get into. It was not as instantly gripping as P.S I Love you, however once you get into the book more it is a good read. The idea that a from the heart giving up some blood is connecting between the giver and the one who got the blood is interesting. It was a bit hard to get a handle on at first however the way it has been set up in this book.
But over all it turns out to be a very good plot. There is a scene where both people go into a Salon to have their hair cut at the same time that made me giggle a bit. If you are looking for a good heart warming chic lit book and do not mind a slightly slow start (I promise it does pick up!) I recommend this book as one you should read. By the end, you will be smiling and feel very warm and fuzzy.
