THE MAN WHO DIDN’T CALL
BY ROSIE WALSH I know – the title makes it sound like the follow-up to He’s Just Not That
Into You, but it’s not like that at all. The internet informs me that this book falls into a genre called ‘romantic suspense’ – new to me, but pretty apt.
Sarah meets Eddie during a walk through the English countryside and they hit it off right away, spending the next six days getting to know each other – and falling in love. Eddie has to leave on a longbooked holiday to Spain, but promises Sarah he’ll be in touch later that same day. But then a whole day passes, and another, and another… Eddie hasn’t called – and he’s not answering his phone or responding to Facebook messages. Has he met someone else? Has he changed his mind? Has he disappeared? Her friends tell her to forget him, but Sarah can’t – she’s convinced their feelings were mutual. How could he do this to her? It turns out there is a reason. Entertaining.
