The Start of Something by Miranda Dickinson

Publication Date 03.02.22

Two lonely people. One note in the window. And what happens when they reach out…

Lachlan Wallace is stuck at home after a car accident stalled his army career. With months of physiotherapy still to endure and only his rescue dog and cat for company, he’s taken to gazing out of the window, watching the world spin on without him. And then he notices a vase of flowers on the windowsill of the apartment opposite his. Drawn to their hope and colour, he decides to reach out and sticks a message in his window…

Bethan Gwynne is a stranger in a new town. Bringing up her son Noah by herself, she is slowly rebuilding her life, but loneliness is one obstacle she has yet to overcome. She’s intrigued by a glimpse of her neighbour in the apartment across from hers – and then, one evening, she sees a message in his window just for her:


And so begins a love story of two people reaching out, daring to trust a stranger…

Five Star Review

I'm not much of a fan of romcoms but this had a really good back story and a unique hook.

Fabulous writing that simmers on the page and an intriguing plot with a mystery that had me hooked .

Both characters were flawed enough to be interesting and engaging. I loved the Oh No will they or not moments and the mixed messages that arose between them. The predicament Lachlan found himself in was intriguing and I so wanted him to wake up to his best friend's real motives. The spirit of independence shown by Bethan and her love for her son was beautifully written.

Bethan makes a great modern day hero and I fell a little in love with Lachlan. I desperately wanted them to work out and live happily ever after.

A really great romance for grown ups and a perfect Valentine read.
