Review of The Love Letter by Fiona Walker

Summary from Goodreads
When Allegra North parted from first love Francis after a decade together, she poured all her regret into a letter. He didn't reply. A year later, her job brings her back to the beautiful Devon coast where romance first blossomed and she hopes that they can start a new chapter. As summer storms circle, the exes juggle rebellious parents, vengeful family members and a very reluctant celebrity author who holds the key to everybody's future . . . The Love Letter is a wonderfully warm comedy of mistaken identities, new loves and old flame

I am a huge fan of Fiona Walker and jumped at the chance to read her latest novel ‘The Love Letter’.

Allegra North (known as Legs) is a Literary Agent’s Assistant who is having an affair with her boss. Before she began working, she had been in a long romance with her childhood sweetheart; Francis Protheroe. When she called it off, Francis seemed devastated, Allegra also had second thoughts and poured her feelings into a letter. However, Francis didn’t ever reply.
One year later and Allegra is sent back to the Protheroe home on the Devon coast on behalf of the agency and demanding client and bestselling author Gordon Lapis. However, Allegra is not at all prepared for some changes that await her.

I enjoyed reading this book so much. It has some hilarious moments and had me laughing out loud in places. There is quite a bit of mystery surrounding the true identity of Gordon Lapis and the correspondence between Allegra, Gordon and Kelly his PA is so funny.

This is a beautifully written novel with a vivid setting, larger than life characters and a plot that will leave you desperate to find out what happens next.

This is a big book, but I sailed through enjoying every moment. I can’t wait to read the next Fiona Walker novel!

Thank you to Sphere for sending me a copy to review.
