Review: My Great Ex-Scape by Portia Macintosh @PortiaMacintosh @BoldwoodBooks

It’s a great pleasure today to sharing my review for My Great Ex-Scape by Portia Macintosh as part of the blog tour. Many thanks to Boldwood Books for the invite and the copy via NetGalley.

About the book

What if your future was somewhere in your past?

Rosie Jones has been dumped by every boyfriend she’s ever had – most recently by Dinosaur Dave, live on TV, during the ‘phone-a-friend’ segment of a quiz show. After the footage goes viral Rosie receives a bunch of flowers with a message:

I love you, I should have never let you go, I want you back x

But who sent them?

At a loose end and with £50,000 prize money in her back pocket, Rosie decides to take a trip down memory lane, visiting each of her ex-boyfriends to see not just if they are the one who sent the flowers but if they are the one.

Her journey takes her back to the house she grew up in and on a transatlantic cruise to New York, but can Rosie figure out which ex-boyfriend is the love of her life, or should the past stay in the past?

A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from bestseller, Portia MacIntosh. Perfect for fans of Holly Martin, Sophie Ranald and Zara Stoneley.

My thoughts

What a perfect way to brighten up a dull January. My Great Ex-Scape is the perfect mood lifter if you’re feeling a bit down in the dumps, it’ll certainly put a smile on your face and I can’t believe I’ve never read any of Macintosh’s books before. That will definitely be rectified soon.

Rosie Jones isn’t lucky in love but when she receives a bunch of flowers with a note saying I love you, I should have never let you go, I want you back x after being dumped by Dinosaur Dave on national tv during a game show she decides to use the £50,000 to take a trip down memory lane and find this ex that has declared his love for her.

I loved following Rosie on her journey, she’s a great character and I think anyone could empathise and relate to her. I loved how she picked herself up after such a humiliating situation and watching her learn things about herself was quite uplifting.

I found myself just totally engrossed in this story, it’s one those books that you just don’t want to put down. It’s filled with humour and fun and quirky characters that make you smile and I really didn’t want it to end.

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute reading My Great Ex-Scape, the story flowed well and I found myself totally lost in the pages. There were some real laugh out loud moments and it was just the perfect medicine to brighten up my day.

I’ll definitely be recommending this book and I can’t wait to read more from Portia Macintosh soon.
