I truly enjoyed following along with Nell’s journey and exploring the complexities of human relationships as well as relatable topics of everyday life and of adulting in the end. While there were a few decisions that made me uncomfortable and some actions that I didn’t agree with, the overall story was a beautiful journey of self-discovery and rediscovering first love. It was refreshing to read a modern romantic comedy with an uplifting message and I’m sure you will enjoy it as well.
I absolutely adored the fact that my own experience living in London and witnessing day-to-day life, people, and their relationships (none of which were conducted with any ulterior motives, I assure you!) helped me gain a deeper understanding of several aspects that I was previously unfamiliar with. I guess this experience helped me relate or connect to the book in a way that I couldn’t do so despite being a bookworm all my life.
This brings me to another aspect of the book that I feel the need to mention – “Britishness”. The book is set in London as well as rural northern England and the author does an incredible job at ensuring that the setting comes across in an authentic way. While the characters and their relationships are the primary focus of this book, I found myself drawn to the beautiful nuances of British culture that were woven into the story.
I felt the need to bring this up even though it might be expected since the author is in fact British, but I found that it is not something one should take for granted. The author has done a wonderful job in creating an immersive experience for its readers and I believe that it is something worth mentioning, especially as it does not happen in every book no matter how much the author tries. At times, the setting can come across as fake but not in this book.
Now let’s talk a bit about spiciness as I am sure that is something of interest to many of you. Well, there are some spicy scenes in this book, but they are very few regardless of how it may seem at first. This is definitely a book dedicated to adult readers, but the book is rather clean.
Do I recommend this book?
Overall, this is a book I do recommend. Whether you’re looking for a lighthearted read or an emotional rollercoaster ride, Did You Miss Me? is sure to provide both. With its witty dialogue and relatable characters, this book will keep readers laughing as they explore themes of love and friendship. So grab your copy today and join Nell on her journey! Happy reading!
