Book Review: My Year of Saying No

My Year of Saying No

My Year of Saying No by Maxine Morrey




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.⁣

I totally enjoyed this light read. It is the perfect story to read while curled up with a nice cuppa tea or a glass of wine. The characters were easy so easy to love, I wanted them as my friends. ⁣

There was an interesting twist to this story because the main character, Lottie, was committed to saying “no” instead of “yes”. Lottie’s commitment created challenges that made it difficult to see a friendship bloom into something else in front of her own eyes.⁣

As a former virtual assistant, I connected with Lottie and her struggles with personal connection as someone that works exclusively from home. Lottie’s client, Seb, is a veteran that has his own challenges and his bravery as he tackled these challenges was so heart warming. ⁣

This book exudes positivity and good vibes. And as a sucker for a good romantic movies, this one will make a great movie adaptation. I had already started casting actors in my head and would be eager to enjoy this film.⁣

Thanks to NetGalley, the author and publisher for an e-ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. Follow me on Instagram (@deedeesbookclub) or Goodreads for more book fun.
