How to Save a Life by S.D. Robertson

I’m delighted to be part of the blog tour today for this wonderful book. Thanks so much to Avon Books for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

About the Book:

You can’t have a rainbow, without a little rain…

When a stranger saves Luke’s life, he knows he’s been given a second chance. He’s going to make it count – and, determined to live each day to its fullest, he starts by saying yes to everything life has to offer.

Slowly but surely, Luke learns that a little bit of blue-sky thinking can go a long way, and things start to look up.

But when Luke’s new resolve is tested, will he return to his old ways? Or can one fateful moment truly save a life?

A life-affirming story about a man who is given a second chance, perfect for fans of Mike Gayle and Imogen Clark.

My Review:

We meet Luke, and he’s one of life’s glass-half-empty people. He’s grumpy, pessimistic and as he even says himself, curmudgeonly, in spite of being relatively young.

But there’s more to Luke than meets the eye. He’s so lovely and sweet to his cat, Alfred, which made me realise that he actually has a heart of gold, and as the book goes on, we find out more about him, and what he’s been through to make him like this. I genuinely couldn’t help being fond of him right from the start, and even more so as the story progresses.

When Luke goes through a near-death experience, his whole attitude changes, and it’s lovely to be witness to his transformation. It’s not always easy, but it’s so heart-warming and life-affirming to see.

There’s some sad, and some very real, moments in this book, and it’s very thought-provoking, but there’s also great wit and humour.

I enjoyed every page of this uplifting and beautifully written book. The characters have such depth and I think this is a book that will stay with me for a long time.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
