I obtained this book for review via netGalley.
Delivered with Love opens at a funeral. Claire’s mother died after a long illness during which Claire was her carer. To escape from the wake, Claire hides out in her mother’s car where she discovers a love letter sent to her mother many years previously. The rest of the novel is taken up with Claire’s search for the letter’s author but it’s also a coming of age, a coming to Jesus and a coming to love.
I found myself completely taken up with this book. I didn’t always empathise with Claire – she does some really stupid things – but Ms Kyle gives so many other quirky characters that I nearly always found something to smile about. What more could you ask of a light romance on a rainy afternoon?
