Book Review: For Once in My Life

By Colleen Coleman

Pages: 264
Genre: Chick-Lit, Romance, Contemporary
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

The worst day of Lily Buckley’s life was being jilted at the altar by her fiance Adam when he told her he didn’t want to marry her and was in love with her best friend.


Since then Lily has been living on auto piolet. Working a mediocre job as a journalist at the local paper.

Then one day, the editor-in-chief up’s and leaves when he discovers that the big wigs from head office are coming. The newspaper is in shambles, but Lily steps up as acting editor in chief and it is the beginning of a new chapter for Lily (though she doesn’t know it yet).

With the encouragement of her work colleagues and sexy new colleague Chris (from head office), Lily sets about a bucket list, taking changes and discovering who she is, and understanding her neurotic mum just a little bit more.

I purchased this book on boxing day 2018, and it has been sitting unread in my Kobo library since.

I’m slowly making my way through my unread ebooks, and I’m glad I picked this one.

It was short, cute, funny and sweet.

What I also love is that all the other author’s books are titles of songs.
