Title: Another Shot
Author: Stephen Anthony Brotherton
Publisher: The Book Guild
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
My Rating: 4 out of 5
Another Shot tells the story of Freddie and Jo-Jo, who are reunited in a coffee shop thirty-five years after the end of their teenage romance. Jo-Jo finds Freddie through a mutual friend, and tells him that she is emigrating following the death of her husband. She gives him a photograph of the two of them on their first weekend away, a trip to Blackpool.
How they originally met, why they parted, what happens in their lives apart is all told through a series of flashbacks. These memories feed into events when they meet up again and explain why, despite the passage of time and the intensity of their still simmering love, there is no future for their relationship.
I really enjoyed this book. It was really easy to get to know the characters and follow their journey, right from when they were teenagers and 35 years later when they meet again. I loved following the journey of Freddie and Jo-Jo, and finding out what happened in their lives, and why they just can’t be together. A real heartwarming and heart breaking love story.
Another Shot is full of love, laughs, reflection and takes you on trip down memory lane. I would recommend Another Shot to anyone who is looking for a good romance story.
