Welcome to the final stop on the blog tour for Harper Impulse writer Mandy Baggot and her newest novel, Do You Remember?
2005 was the most traumatic year of Emma Barron’s life. It was the year her mother died and the year she met Guy Duval. Eight years on, she’s an English teacher with a doting boyfriend and a young son. Life’s been hard but now it’s comfortable. She’s settled and content…so why would she risk it all for another chance with the man that broke her heart?
Guy’s an international renowned footballer newly signed to a top UK team. But behind the confident facade is a man determined to drown the horrors from his childhood with fame, success and money.
Unable to confide in her best friend, Ally, Emma tries to hold her life together as her heart is pulled apart. Did she turn her back on love too soon?
Neither of them know what really happened on 5 September 2005 and as events are slowly revealed can anyone cope with the truth?
This was my first read from the new HarperCollins imprint, Harper Impulse. It certainly won’t be my last. When I signed up for the book tour, I was intrigued by the blurb and genuinely wanted to know “what really happened on 5 September 2005.”
Mandy Baggot, a well published writer, gives us characters that you can’t help but love or hate and a love story that makes you swoon. She goes in-depth with Emma and Guy, making them less one-dimensional and more complex. I didn’t expect Do You Remember? to be as compelling and emotional as it was–pleasantly surprised indeed!
The heat level was medium–yes there were some sexy (and naughty!) scenes but nothing overly raunchy which suited me just fine! I don’t like to cringe or feel embarrassed when reading a book (50 Shades of Grey, I’m looking at you!).
I absolutely flew through this book, gobbling up little hints in the text as to how Emma and Guy ended up the way they did. This book was exciting and a page turner and doesn’t disappoint with the ending… two twists, one of which you see coming and the other which is beyond shocking! I’d definitely recommend this book to my romance fiction friends and am eager to read more from both Mandy Baggot and Harper Impulse.
