As Luck Would Have It by Zoe May is the most delightful contemporary novel that celebrates love and friendship. It is a light-hearted and extremely amusing read that literally had me laughing out loud.
Zoe May writes stories that warm your heart and leave you smiling and feeling good about life. Her characters have a chemistry that is contagious. The dialogue delightfully bounces between them.
From temperate England to hot Marrakech, the reader is in for a real treat. Comprehensive descriptions enable the reader to ‘walk’ through the narrative with the characters. We ‘experience’ sultry and exotic Marrakech from the confines of our sofa.
United by school day memories the two main characters show what true friendship is – it is being comfortable in the presence of another and caring more for them than for self.
Past hurts mean that hearts are guarded. It is beautiful to witness walls coming down and hearts being set free.
I absolutely adored As Luck Would Have It. It is a beautiful and highly amusing feel-good novel. One that remains long after the last page is read. I love Zoe May’s style of writing where the world is a more beautiful place when viewed through her eyes.
