The Most Anticipated February 2022 Book Releases

Romance isn’t generally my genre, but I found Josie Silver’s previous books, One Day in December and The Two Lives of Lydia Bird, to be sharp and nuanced in a way most romances are not. Sadly, One Night on the Island didn’t reach the same level. Although the characters are mature and the writing is easy to read, the romance felt tired and predictable.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Ballantine Books through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
