My Thoughts

All You Need Is Love is the latest delightful novel by Jessica Redland, and after reading – and falling in love – with her previous novels, this book was certainly a highly anticipated addition.

Our leading lady in this story Jemma has worked with teddy bears her whole life. A passion in which she shares with her mother that started from a young age, has lead on to a much loved career for her as an adult. Along with her recent engagement to her boyfriend of several months Scott, Jemma feels as though she has a great future ahead of her. That is until Scott suddenly stops calling her following their recent engagement, and as Jemma tries to come to terms with what caused him to abandon her completely, she has other troubles to face.

Along with her own heartache, Jemma’s mother starts acting out of character, something which would be troubling for any child to deal with. And then we meet Sam. A man who is also struggling as he battles with the memories and fallout from his own past, and doing everything he possibly can to push the pain away. Despite living in the same small town for years, Jemma and Sam only meet when they both start new jobs in London. They both have a lot of baggage, but something seems to draw these two together, and they have to decide whether they can really allow themselves to let someone in to their lives again.

This was such a beautiful, moving story that really captivated me to the very end. The storyline was wonderfully unique, and certainly took us on an emotional rollercoaster as we learn more about the characters and the struggles they have had to face. The characters were intriguing and well developed, and I loved how each of them were given their own characteristics, all of which added extra context to this brilliant story. I have always found Jessica Redland’s writing style completely immersive, and she certainly never fails to make me feel as though I am living the events alongside the characters. A truly engrossing read that I couldn’t recommend highly enough!.
