S amantha lives a perfect, polished life in a beautiful big house with her mother, Senator Grace Reed, and older sister, Tracy. Next door is a very different story. The Garretts are a huge family and life over there is perfectly chaotic. Her mum takes any opportunity to roll her eyes at their house, but Samantha spends the majority of her time looking over into their garden and wishing she could join in with their seemingly much more fun lives. One day, however, Jase Garrett climbs up to sit with her and suddenly she is plunged into the life she always longed for. Be warned, this book will make you want to book a sunny holiday, or at the very least make some lemonade!
For Alice, nothing could be scarier than falling for Tim. When these two crash into each other, they crash hard. Christina absolutely loved the companion novel, My Life Next Door. You can read her review of it here. However, that did not influence this review in any way. All thoughts, quotes, and opinions will be of this version and not of the published edition. Plain and simple, Huntley Fitzpatrick is one of those guaranteed authors for me.
