Star Crossed by Minnie Darke. (2019).
**4.5 out of 5 stars**
When Justine (Sagittarius, aspiring journalist and sceptic) bumps into old friend Nick (Aquarius, struggling actor and true believer), it could be by chance or maybe it’s written in the stars…
Justine works at a magazine which includes a horoscope column that Nick uses to guide his life. What better way to get his attention by making some alterations to his horoscope before it gets printed; what possible harm could it do?
This is a very enjoyable, light-hearted read. Well written and easy to read, it was an absorbing novel that I quickly got lost into. Our two leads, Justine and Nick, are very likeable and I was rooting for them to get together the whole time and have their happy ending. There is a whole cast of minor characters that don’t seem to be connected at first glance but it all comes together in the end; I quite liked these little side characters and their respective mini stories. This book would be comparable to one of those feel-good romantic comedy type films that many love to indulge in – and yes, I think this novel would make a fab movie.
A thoroughly entertaining as well as quite humorous in parts novel that I’d happily recommend for those looking for a light easy read.
