My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
This is the first blog tour review of many over the next five days and as organised as I promised I would be … I’m really not. I finished this book at half past ten last night in some attempt to have this review ready for today.

Accidentally in Love by Belinda Missen
Publisher: HQ Digital
Date Published: 11th September 2020
Format: eBook ARC
Genre: Romance, Chick Lit, Contemporary, Adult
Don’t miss the new laugh-out-loud rom com from the author of One Week ’Til Christmas! Perfect for fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Rosie Walsh and Josie Silver.
In the space of a week, Katharine Patterson has quit her job, decided to move back home, and broken up with the guy she thought was the one.
No big deal.
Because Katharine has a plan. She’s going to open her own art gallery, just like she’s always wanted. What she’s not going to do is worry about boyfriends.
Then she meets Kit, a handsome and talented local artist. He might be the most stubborn person Katharine has ever met. He might also make her feel like no one ever has before.
And Katharine might be about to fall accidentally in love…
I want to begin this review by saying a huge thank you to Belinda Missen, HQ Digital and Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with a free copy of this book. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and thank you for letting me read it early.
I absolutely loved Katherine, our heroine of this story. From the very first few chapters, where she walks out of her office because a unqualified man, who knows how to be part of the boys club, got the job she deserved, I knew that I was going to like this girl. She has guts. She’s stubborn and she knows what she wants.
When ‘they’ say that opposites attract I’m not sure what they mean because, for as stubborn as Kit was, and in my opinion he wasn’t all that stubborn, just misunderstood, Katherine was just as stubborn. These characters were bound to clash head, get on like a house on fire, and make explosions.
Katherine makes going from corporate life in London to owning her own gallery in Sheffield look like a breeze. I’m sure if I were to set up my own business, it wouldn’t go nearly as well. And that’s not to say Katherine had it easy. For every up it seemed like this girl had two downs and in the end you are just hoping that life evens out for her.
My only problem with this story as, I have with a lot of romance is it’s predictability. We know where this girl is going to end up. It’s a romance story, of course we know. But I thoroughly enjoyed the journey on this one.
I highly recommend for anyone who loves a good swoon when it comes to romance.
And just before I sign off I want to say how good it is to read a British book that wasn’t set in London. I thoroughly enjoyed re-exploring Sheffield through the eyes of our characters. It was great to be back in the city I went to university.
