Blurb: Postgraduate student Andrew Chin arrives in London not only to study, but to explore life away from his traditional family in Singapore. His adventure begins at the airport, where he finds the diary of a wealthy British businessman and endeavors to return it.
James Howard is twice Andrew’s age, and he’s not used to selfless youngsters. Despite a rocky first meeting, the two develop an unlikely friendship as James introduces Andrew to the city. James is looking forward to the festivities leading up to Christmas in London and maybe a celebration with Andrew. But will a nasty bout of the flu ruin their romantic holiday?
Not if Andrew has anything to say about it.
Review: This is a lovely, sweet story by TJ Masters which rests on the simple premise of a misplaced diary in a busy airport. I can’t recall reading anything by the author before, so like I do with any new author I like to go in with an open mind and no expectations.
The story itself was enjoyable and fun but there was something missing which didn’t reach out and grab me while I was reading. The story follows Andrew Chin, he’s moved to London from Singapore to complete his Masters degree. Barely stepping foot in the airport, Andrew finds a lost diary and when he returns the diary he meets the owner, older businessman James Howard.
A thoroughly enjoyable read, I think the only barrier to your enjoyment is two things 1) no real drama or event to develop the plot or the characters, and 2) you need to be on board with reading a love story between a 20-something and a 40-something.
