REVIEW of When Archie Met Rosie: An Unexpected Love Story by Lynda Renham

An Unexpected Love Story.

Rosie Foster has two dreams. The first is to move off the Tradmore Estate, and the second is to see Paris. Archie wants for nothing. He has his five-bedroom house but no one to share it with now that his beloved wife, Cath, has died.  And then … Holly has a disastrous night out and, against all the odds, Archie meets Rosie.

A funny, sad and poignant tale of how love can be found in the strangest of places.

My Thoughts…

Rosie wins money and Frank, her husband gets run over by a pizza delivery truck.    With Frank’s death and her win, the people wanting to get her hands on her money come out of the woodwork.     Then she meets Archie, who is really Alfred but what’s important about a name.    This was the first thing that made me giggle.    Rosie just couldn’t get Alfred’s name correct and he gives up on correcting her.     The fun, the entertainment, and the giggles continue throughout the rest of the book. 

The book is set in the UK and the language in ‘local English’ but I found myself really enjoying the different wording, the different spellings, and the different conversations.    The last few books by Lynda Renham have been thrillers, which I enjoyed, but I liked that she returned to the style of writing that I first knew her for.     The quirky characters, the fun storyline, and the great friendships are what drew me to Lynda as an author. 

When Archie Met Rosie is a book for all readers.    There is life lessons, friendships, family drama, and so much fun within the story.   I recommend picking up your own copy.
