Thank you toRachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to participate in the blog tour for Camilla Isley’s new fabulous rom-com Fool Me Twice at Christmas!
Fool Me Twice at Christmas
There are two types of relationships: fake and real.
Chuck and Kate’s used to be real, oh-so-real. But after she broke his heart four months ago, leaving him, it became all just pretense for the sake of their entwined families.
With parents who are best friends and business partners, it’s not easy for Chuck and Kate to announce they’ve split up. But with the holidays looming over them, they can no longer keep pretending.
They head home for Christmas, determined to tell the truth—and end up accidentally engaged instead. The more they try to pull apart, the more the Universe seems to push them back together, shortening the road to the altar. And when just-for-show kisses stir up forgotten feelings, things get even more complicated.
Now, with the midnight hour approaching, will Chuck and Kate’s relationship turn out to be fake or real?
I always look forward to reading Camilla Isley’s latest book as I’m a big fan of her writing style and her sense of humour and this one was just adorable. Fool Me Twice at Christmas is a perfect romcom with relatable, lovable protagonists and lots of hilarious misunderstandings in the storyline.
Kate and Chuck are heading home for Christmas holidays. They used to be childhood friends, then they became a couple for the joy of their home town, where everybody knows and roots for them,and then…I guess they just fell into a routine…until the break up. When your parents and your ex’s parents happen to be not just best friends, but also business partners (they co-own a chocolate factory), it isn’t easy to comeclean and tell them you aren’t together anymore. Kate and Chuck aren’t exactly stalling, they are trying to find the right moment to announce the news…But what can you do when things just keep happening and the whole situation is rapidly getting out of control?
The pace was flawless. The story is told from aternating points of view, so we get an insight into the feelings of our star-crossed duo and see how perfect they are for each other. It isn’t just fun and jokes, there’s a great message behind it: love and relationships need attention, work, willingness to communicate and compromise. I love this friends-to-lovers trope, mixed with the second chance one, all in a delicious comic package from a very talented author.
If you are looking for a sweet, clean romcom with the festive spirit, but mostly focusing on the relationship, Fool me Twice is perfect. Can’t wait to read Camilla’s next book!
