Lucy In The Sky by Paige Toon

The Review for Lucy In The Sky is by guest reviewer, Nicole.


A Lawyer.
A Surfer.
A 24- Hour Flight.

The frequent liar points are clocking up and Lucy's got choices to make...

It's been nine years since Lucy left Australia. Nine years since she's seen her best friend Molly, and Sam, the one-time love of her life. Now her two friends are getting married. To each other. And Lucy is on her way to Sydney for their wedding.

Life for Lucy has moved on. She's happily settled with James, her gorgeous lawyer boyfriend, with their flat in London and her glamorous job in PR. Surely there's no reason to expect this two-week holiday in the sun will be anything out of the ordinary?

But just before take-off, Lucy receives a text from James's mobile. She can't resist taking a look....and, in one push of a button, her world comes crashing down...

This is the first novel written by Paige Toon, after reading others by her and how her characters interlink I thought I would give this a try. I don't want to give away too much from the book but I thought it would be predictable and boy was I wrong.

Lucy has all she ever wanted and when she receives a message which indicates that James is having an affair from his phone, her world comes crashing down. He denies this and puts her at ease so that she can enjoy the wedding.

The book exposes Lucy's emotions and vulnerability, after seeing past friends from her childhood seeing them so happy. One friend, Nathan, Sam's brother catches her eye, he has changed so much since their childhood. They build a great friendship. I loved how the friendship progresses through this book. Lucy then questions her feelings for her boyfriend and wonders if he is actually telling the truth.

Lucy in the Sky is one of my favourite books that Paige has written, you will be gripped from the getgo, the twists and turns will make you not want to put the book down. Loved the last couple of chapters too, Sassiness at its best!! 5 stars all the way....
