#BookReview Evie's Little Black Book by Hannah Pearl #PublicationDay

About the book

Is hunting down every man you’ve kissed the answer to finding Mr Right?

When Evie is invited to the wedding of the guy she’d fancied throughout her teens, it’s the final straw. What’s wrong with her and why can’t she keep a man? 
In between consoling herself with ice cream and chocolate, and sobbing her heart out to her cousin Chamaine, Evie has a brainwave – and it all centres around her ‘little black book’ (well, more floral patterned notebook really) – which contains the details of every man she’s ever kissed or dated. Perhaps the cure for her disastrous love life has been nestled within its pages all along … 
Does Evie’s little black book really hold the answers, or will she learn that exes are exes for a reason?

I have had so much fun reading this book! In Evie, there's a character who we can all relate to!!  Looking back at the men in her life, and wondering why she's still single! Is it her? Has she been picking the wrong men?  Luckily for her she's kept notes over the years in her 'little black book' - more of a floral notebook! -  of all the crushes and kisses she's had!  

So now is the perfect time for her to go back and track down some of the exes, and to see if she made did make mistakes or if she had lucky escapes! Anything to help her try and get over the news of the forthcoming wedding she's been invited to of one of those crushes she spent her teenage years pining over!

I loved the fun side of this book and it just felt really sassy!!  Evie isn't afraid of confronting her past and looking back often ends up throwing you off track, and finding out some shocking secrets about those you thought you knew! Her cousin Charmaine was straight talking and helped set her on the right track and was always there with good advice!

She learns so much about herself by going back and it was so enjoyable to go on that journey with her in the hope that she'd find her Mr Right!  Loved it!
