You Had Me At Hello, by Mhairi McFarlane

The tagline for the book is "Rachel and Ben. Ben and Rachel. It was them against the world. Until it all fell apart. It’s been a decade since they last spoke, but when Rachel bumps into Ben one rainy day, the years melt away." From this, and a skim of a couple of reviews, I thought it might be a bit like One Day. I did notice though, that none of the reviews actually mentioned that book. Which should have warned me. It was nothing like it.

This was pretty standard chick-lit, and not fantastically good (well, I suppose I've read worse, so perhaps it would count as being relatively good in that genre). But I think it must have benefited from a lot of hype: there are over 1000 reviews on Amazon.

It's an easy enough read, but nothing special.
