In the space of a week, Katharine Patterson has quit her job, decided to move back home, and broken up with the guy she thought was the one.
No big deal.
Because Katharine has a plan. She’s going to open her own art gallery, just like she’s always wanted. What she’s not going to do is worry about boyfriends.
Then she meets Kit, a handsome and talented local artist. He might be the most stubborn person Katharine has ever met. He might also make her feel like no one ever has before.
And Katharine might be about to fall accidentally in love…
Accidentally in Love by Belinda Missen is one of the most anticipated books of 2020 and it did not disappoint us.
Accidentally in Love is a story of an independent woman, Katherine Patterson whose life might’ve got insanely messier in over a span of one week. How she gets her life back together and how she accidentally fell in love with a guy whom she would not have imagined she would fall for. That’s pretty much the story-line of this really engaging novel.
The way the story commenced and how it moved forward was one of the best things about this book. The characterization of Katherine’s character was completely unbelievable because before the readers could even realize they will be deep in love with her. Her character was so relatable and lively, stepping into her shoes and reading her story from her perspective will be the most easiest thing the world for the readers.
The relationship Kate shared with her brother, Adam was something really heart-warming and adorable. Whenever they both meet, it will be really nice to read. And also Kate’s relationship with her father and her step-mom was deep. So this book also elaborately spoke about how supportive families can be when you are at your lowest. This book gave a reassurance that however messed up you can be, you can always return to home without being judged and that is why is called HOME. This book strongly conveyed that weirdly in a most subtle and casual way, that’s one of the greatest things about Belinda’s writing style.
Now about kate’s love life, her entire relationship with John had a vibe and the author’s writing gave the readers a perfect feel that John was the one for Kate but then how it turns out was quite disastrous. Later Christopher aka Kit came into the picture, the most rudest man in the world, his character was not charming or lovable. He had this rude attitude which will make anybody drift a thousand miles away from him. And then the author brought about a twist which will make the readers fall accidentally in love with kit just like Kate. Which seems perfectly impossible when the book started but the author was extremely convincing and persuasive, that her writing literally made the readers believe and feel everything she wanted them to feel and it is a sheer talent. Throughout the book, the author had effectively casted a spell over the readers that every single feeling and thought-process of the readers were under the author’s control. This is the next big success of this book and the author.
The book revolves around art, the lead characters talks so much about arts and paintings and art galleries, and so that itself will give a very beautiful picture about the setting and the backdrop of the plot and it was quite informative. Everything about this book was so very pleasant. And the way in which the author had described the Kate’s gallery and Sheffield was extremely rich and ethnic.
The turns the book took and how it marched forward was tremendous. Throughout the book, the writing style was really engaging. Certain phrases, dialogue delivery and the narrative style was outstanding. The writing style could’ve been a bit more cohesive and smooth because at certain points it was kind of rash. On the whole it was a very interesting and enchanting read and totally worth the read and time.
I have been crazily waiting for this book and once I got approval for reviewing this book, I was absolutely over the moon and even before starting the book itself I knew it was going to be an amazing read. At times you kind of get this weird vibe where you feel it in your gut that this book is all you needed just by looking at the cover and the title, Accidentally in Love is that kind of a book to me. But this can be at times misleading 😛 but I’m happy that this work by Belinda Missen turned out to be really great.
I loved Kate’s character so very much. I could related with her immediately and she was absolutely the one about whom I wanted to read. She was so strong and her desire to want to prove herself to the world without any man’s help was something that made me admire her so much. She was someone worth calling an inspiration. I initially loved John so much despite all the red flags and red signals, their parts were really epic and I loved it so much. When it didn’t work out, I was way too heart-broken than Kate and John. Yeah, this happen with me every time, I simply want the lead characters to stay with their first boyfriend or girlfriend, I think it’s some kind of a disorder but ultimately Christopher charmed his way through and in the end he was the one who felt right.
I usually like books that are set out in England, the vibe and the aura that England provides is something really unique and epic. I get this rose tinted glasses on whenever I read a story based on England and it’s suburbs or the city of London itself and I seriously do not know the reason.
I simply loved this book so very much and I would suggest this book to all the rom-com and chick-lit lovers, you will definitely love it. And if you are someone who is looking for a calm, light and feel good book filled wit lot aspirations and inspirations, then this book is absolutely for you.
My rating for this book would be 3.6 out of 5 stars
