ABOUT THE BOOK
All the love. All the drama. All you missed.
HILARIOUS AND HEARTBREAKING OFFICIAL NOVEL FROM THE HIT TV SERIES.
Reeling from the sudden death of Rachel, his beloved wife, Adam has no time to grieve. He has to keep going, for the sake of their baby son.
Jenny moves back in with ex-husband Pete, eight and a half months pregnant with another man's child. Can their relationship overcome past jealousies?
Karen and David agree to an amicable divorce - but that's before he sleeps with the divorce lawyer . . .
THE LOST YEARS reveals what happened to your favourite characters between series five and six of the award-winning TV series written by Mike Bullen. It's an irresistible chance to catch up on all the laughter, the tears, the life lessons we missed while they were gone.
Like millions of others I was and am a huge Cold Feet fan so when I heard there was going to be a book describing the lost years in between I was a tad anxious. What if the author got it wrong and completely ruined my memories of this show? What if it just didn't feel the same? But when it was announced that it was Carmel Harrington that would be writing this story I knew that it would be perfection itself, and I was right. Everything this author releases is pure gold and COLD FEET THE LOST YEARS is no exception.
The novel begins in the aftermath of Rachel's death as Adam struggles with his grief. If it wasn't for his beautiful son and his conversations with Rachel inside his head, he probably wouldn't be able to get out of bed. Back in Belfast, Adam is enjoying getting to know his father again, but as the pain from the past begins to resurface, Adam may just have to face his demons as well as his sorrow, if he is to find a way to make a future for himself and his little boy.
Jenny and Pete may be living together and giving it another go, but as Jenny's due date gets closer, she can feel Pete moving further away from her. She desperately wants to make this work but what if Pete is already regretting his decision to give their relationship another go?
As David's relationship with the divorce lawyer seems to be getting more serious, Karen is struggling with juggling her career, her children, and her grief for the death of her best friend. And that bottle of gin is starting to look all too tempting...
Throw in a few more secondary characters that add even more spice to the pot, and this novel is everything I wanted it to be and more. As I read the words, I could see each character from the tv show act it out in my mind, and you can tell that the author must be a huge fan of the tv series, as she gets all of the nuances, language, style, and character's mannerisms absolutely spot on. The drama is heartbreaking, hilarious, and emotional just as you would expect it to be, and nothing was done in my house the night I started to read this book.
