Blurb : Maybe he wasnât here because of the lights â maybe they were here because of him â¦â Itâs been over eighteen months since Molly Gilchrist has had a man (as her best friend, Caro, is so fond of reminding her) so when she as good as stumbles upon one, lying comatose, on the moors one bitterly cold morning, it seems like the Universe is having a laugh at her expense. But Phinn Baxter (thatâs Doctor Phinneas Baxter) is no drunken layabout, as Molly is soon to discover; with a PhD in astrophysics and a tortured past that is a match for Mollyâs own disastrous love life. Finding mysterious men on the moors isnât the weirdest thing Molly has to contend with, however. Thereâs also those strange lights she keeps seeing in the sky. The ones sheâs only started seeing since meeting Phinn â¦
Review : Meet Phinn and Molly, two people hurt by their past hiding out in a small town. We find ourselves right in the middle of a beautiful discribed english landscape. The characters of their friends and neighbours all feel warm and likeable. Molly is hiding from her love life but manages to keep up a living for herself . Phinn on the other hand (and I am sorry if this is a spoiler – but I feel it is very important to mention) is suffering from a severe depression that makes it almost impossible for him to function on a normal base. There were some moments throughout the story were I was really afraid for him and where this story might take me. But I really liked the sensitive way in which Molly approached Phinn, there were enough occcasion in which she could have reacted differently and nobody would have blamed her, but she turned out to be bigger than expected. Understanding what Phinn was going through she was able to analyse what went wrong in her life too. Even with all those problems lingering in their past and threatening their future, this book surprises with witty dialogues and makes you smile at Molly and Phinn’s banter. Personally I felt that the story was dragging a little when coming to an end and also some ‘things’ about Phinn’s issues left me wondering. Therefore I am not able to give a higher rating but I can still recommend it to everyone who likes reading a typical english romance on a rainy saturday.
