The Little Blue Door by Francesca Catlow

In the post-pandemic world Melodie feels lost and alone,
desperate to find something to remind her of her previous life.
She sets out on a trip to Corfu to reconnect with happier times,
only to be haunted by memories and events from the past.
While travelling Melodie meets an intriguing and handsome
man who has the potential to change her future. However, will
the young girl from the plane with piercing green eyes be the one
to open the door to Melodie’s fate?

My Thoughts


When Melodie embarks on a journey to Corfu in the attempt to remind her of happier times in her life, she has no idea how delving in to her past will evoke some rather difficult memories too.

Whilst she is traveling, Melodie meets an intriguing stranger who captures her attention entirely. Anton and his daughter play a huge role in her journey as they lead her towards someone from her past who she felt certain she would never meet again. Along with this revelation, she is constantly haunted by memories from her life here.

This is a truly unique story that captures you heart entirely from the moment you begin reading. The characters are vibrant and have many depths to their personalities which you slowly uncover as the story progresses. The dialogue between the characters is engaging and captivating and really adds some extra drive to this story.

With a wonderfully structured plot and a storyline that has you fully immersed to the very end, this was a fantastic read that I struggled to part with.
