The Accidental Love Letter by Olivia Beirne
About The Book
What would you do if you received a love letter that wasn’t meant for you?
Bea used to feel confident, outgoing and fun, but she’s not sure where that person went.
Over the last few months, she’s found herself becoming reclusive and withdrawn. And despite living with her two best friends, she’s never felt lonelier. To make things worse, she’s become so dependent on her daily routine, she’s started to slip out of everyone else’s.
But when a mysterious battered envelope covered in stars lands on her doormat, Bea wonders if she could find the courage to open it.
It isn’t addressed to her, but it could be… if you squinted…
Bea seems to be struggling with her life, she is afraid to do anything outside the line and keeps her life in order thanks to lists. But everything will change when she receives a letter, everything will change… maybe it’s time for her to open again, don’t you think?
Bea is a sad character, she is living with her two friends but doesn’t seem to connect to either of them or her job co-workers, she lives locked up in herself. The story will change when she will open a letter which is not really for her, but she seems to be attracted by what she reads inside. The change in her will not be from one day to the other, but thanks to the letter she will start to act differently and will try to connect with other people and feel valued, that is what she really needs.
I’ll have to say that in the beginning it was a little bit strange reading how Bea was living her life, checking the time with lists or expecting that everyone would think the worst of her. I suppose in some situations I felt a little bit reflected on the character, I don’t have a lot of confidence and always expect that people would hate me. That’s possibly why I felt so connected with Bea, she is a reflection of a fear we all have inside and we need something to make us change, in this case the mysterious letter.
Yes, I know that I am not talking at all about the letter, but it’s because anything that I could say it would be too much, it’s better to keep the mystery until you read the book, I don’t want to make any spoilers!
If you are searching for a sweet and delicate story, with love and special characters, this one is for you, The Accidental Love Letter has love for all of us, I can assure you.
