The Blurb

Hannah Truman is twenty-seven years old. She is an ordinary girl with an extraordinary memory. One thing she certainly can’t forget is her boyfriend William’s betrayal, which was why she fled to Canada to stay with her sister.

Now, on her way home to England, Hannah finds herself in a queue behind Logan Carter at the airport terminal. He’s checking into Business Class on her flight and although their paths keep crossing, fate prevents them meeting. An almost shared cup of coffee never takes place when Logan is suddenly called away.

But once in the air the unthinkable happens: the plane needs to make an emergency landing. Hannah is alone and terrified, until suddenly Logan slips into the seat beside her.

In the days that follow, Hannah and Logan must call upon all their resources to survive in the frozen landscape, growing ever closer as hopes of a rescue begin to fade…


The Review

Firstly, can I say that the cover of Perfect Strangers is a teeny weeny bit misleading. If you are aware of Dani Atkins previous novels you will know that she tends to write romance books that break your heart (Our Song and While I Was Sleeping, anyone?). What I was not expecting was a disaster romance with a fantasy twist.

The story is about Hannah Truman who has run away from her life in London. Her boyfriend has cheated on her so she has sought sanctuary at her sister’s home in Canada. Realising she will have to face life once more, Hannah returns home to London. At the airport she has mild flirtation with a charming man. Things are certainly looking up for Hannah. However, during the flight there are technical difficulties and the plane crashes.

Suddenly she is one of two survivors of the crash; the other being Logan Carter, the man she was flirting with in the airport.

Ok, so it all sounds so good so far. And it really was a good read. Despite the fantasy element that you will see when you read the book it is actually pretty enjoyable. I now know how to survive a plane crash should I land in the Canadian mountains. If that isn’t reason enough to read Perfect Strangers then I don’t know what is.

Perfect Strangers by Dani Atkins is available now.
