Meet Me In London by Georgia Toffolo (2020) AUDIOBOOK BLOG TOUR


What do you do when your fake engagement starts to feel too real…

Aspiring clothes designer Victoria Scott spends her days working in a bar in Chelsea, and her evenings designing vintage clothes, dreaming of one day opening her own boutique. But these aspirations are under threat from the new department store opening at the end of her road. She needs a Christmas miracle, but one is not forthcoming.

Oliver Russell’s Christmas is not looking very festive right now. His family’s new London department store opening is behind schedule, and on top of that his interfering, if well-meaning mother is pressing him to introduce his girlfriend to her. A girlfriend who does not exist. He needs a diversion. Something to keep his mother from interfering while he focuses on the business.

When Oliver meets Victoria, he offers a proposition: pretend to be his girlfriend at the opening of his store and he will provide an opportunity for Victoria to showcase her designs. But what starts as a business arrangement soon becomes something more tempting, as the fake relationship starts to feel very real. But when secrets in Victoria’s past are exposed will Oliver walk away, or will they both follow their hearts and find what neither knew they were looking for.

This is so good it will melt your heart.
Funny and heartwarming with a cute, romantic storyline and a whole host of wonderful characters.
Oliver is adorable and totally swoon-worthy.  I loved how he didn't think twice about helping Victoria with her students and her fashion show. 
The emotional depth of the story comes from Victoria's friendship with her childhood friends and the consequences of a serious car accident they were all involved in. I would love to see more of her friends and read their stories next! 
Oliver's lovely family also add warmth to the story.  They didn't hesitate in welcoming Victoria to their family and I could feel their anxiety and worry over Oliver's dad's illness.
I enjoyed the narration of the book by the author. Tone and pacing were just right allowing me to get lost in the story straight away. I enjoyed every minute.
