The First Time I Saw Your Face by Hazel Osmond

I have been waiting for what seems like forever for Hazel Osmond’s new book to come out as I loved her previous book Who’s Afraid of Mr Wolfe and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in on her new book The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.

Meet Jennifer she had her life planned out with her main ambition in life to be an actress but her plans take a nose dive after a serious accident which leaves beautiful and confident Jennifer with a horrendous scar across her face and her confidence has gone.

Mack arrives in Jennifer’s home town and with time and perseverance manages to get Jennifer to start gradually living her life again rather than sitting in sorrow but Mack has a hidden secret which could see Jennifer hurt all over again.

This book really is impossible to put down. Osmond’s delicate and yet detailed writing skills are back in full force in this beautiful read. The author has created two well developed and loveable characters in both Mack and Jennifer. The book is told from both of the characters points of view which allow us to get to know the characters on a deeper level.

I loved the unexpected twists in this book, the author leads us down a path of believing one thing and out of nowhere hits us with a complete shocker on more than one occasion. I also loved the romance in this book it wasn’t rushed and this is what appealed to me the gradual build up of attraction which was beautiful to read. Although the cover of the book is not one that would jump out at me from the shelves the cover is quite fitting with the storyline.

This beautiful and delicate read is one I think many of you will find you will be adding to your To Be Read piles!
