Started this and it was a bit sappy but I should return to it given that it is a 4-star entry.
  Okies | Apr 17, 2022 |
Trite, sappy, but not wholly unenjoyable. This explores the many roads down which grief can take a person, and did some of that well. If Laura, the main character, had behaved more like a woman of almost 30 (which she was) and less like a girl of almost 13 that would have made a huge difference. Another help would have been to make her love just about any recording artist other than Phil Collins. When two characters discovered they share the same favorite song and it was Sussudio I almost immediately cut bait. Luckily I liked the male lead, Ben, and his father so that counterbalanced the Laura problem. The descriptions of Jersey (the real one, not the "New" one) were delightful, and notched this from a 2 to a 2.5-star. Also, I listened to this one, and the delightful narrator helped a ton. ( )

Book description
From Goodreads: From the New York Times bestselling author of This Time Next Year comes a heartwarming and hilarious tale that asks: What if you pick up the wrong suitcase in an airport, only to fall head over heels for its unseen owner?

Laura's business trip to the Channel Islands isn't exactly off to a great start. After unceremoniously dumping everything in her bag in front of the most attractive man she's ever seen in real life, she arrives at her hotel only to realize she's grabbed the wrong suitcase from the airport. Her only consolation? The irresistibly appealing contents of the case: a copy of her favorite book; piano music; and a rugged, heavy knit fisherman sweater only a Ryan Gosling lookalike could pull off. The owner of this suitcase is Laura's dream man--she's sure of it. Now, all she has to do is find him.

The mix-up seems written in the stars. After all, what are the odds that she'd find The One on the same remote island where her mom and dad had first fallen in love, especially as she sets out to write an article about their epic romance? Commissioning surly cab driver Ted to ferry her around seems like her best bet in both tracking down the mystery suitcase owner and retracing her parents' footsteps. And if beneath Ted's gruffness lies a wit that makes their cab rides strangely entertaining, so much the better. But as Laura's long-lost luggage soulmate proves difficult to find--and as she realizes that the love story she's held on a pedestal all her life might not have been that perfect--she'll have to rethink her whole outlook on love to discover what she really wants.
