Review – The First Year

The First Year by Genevieve Gannon

My Review:

I absolutely loved this book and the whole concept of the book. It started off with a bit of humor with a pact that the newly married couple comes up with to make the first year of marriage easier. People always say the first year is the hardest, and despite their pact, that rings true for this couple too.

There’s funny moments, happy moments, sad moments, and an overall wonderful journey of emotions. I loved following Andy and Sasika on their adventurous first year and I thoroughly enjoyed the important topics and themes that this novel addresses. This was a page turner for me and I couldn’t put the book down wanting to know what would come next. The ending wasn’t what I was expecting, it was even better. I highly recommend this to fans of women’s fiction with a chick-lit feel.

My Rating: 5/5 Stars

About the Book

Title: The First Year

Author: Genevieve Gannon

Published: April 2017

Book Blurb: The first year of marriage is hard no matter what. Throw in jealous exes, high-pressure careers and two wildly different families, and the degree of difficulty goes up a few more notches. Determined to beat the odds, one couple comes up with a plan to keep their romance alive – but life has other ideas.

Saskia is an up-and-coming jewellery designer, waiting tables at a trendy cafe to keep her fledgling company afloat. Andrew is a corporate lawyer who wants to be known for more than his family’s money. They’re passionate about their work and each other, but with Andy’s job in jeopardy and Saskia’s jewellery label taking off, the pressure is taking its toll.

As life pulls them in different directions, the two of them are forced to decide: Just how important is their marriage? And how hard are they willing to work to protect it?
