When Katie was fourteen, she met her brother’s best friend for the first time. He was good looking, funny and mischievous. What was there to dislike? The trouble was she never stopped liking him and now, in her twenties, her feelings had got stronger. There was no way she was going to tell him though. For a start, her brother wouldn’t like her going out with his best mate. And Jack? Well, he wouldn’t be interested. I mean, why would he, when his girlfriends were so much more glamorous than her?
Jack hadn’t thought of Katie as anything other than his best friend’s sister. At least he hadn’t, until the evening of her parents’ Christmas party. Now, he couldn’t get her out of his mind. But knowing what to do about it was the tricky part. His best mate would hate it if they got together. He was very protective of his sister and from the outset he’d told his friends they couldn’t date her. Not that that would happen anyway. I mean, she’d never shown any interest in him in the whole time that he’d known her so why would she want to go out with him now?
After countless missed opportunities, the time now felt right for them to let each other know. There was one problem, Jack was going to become a father. He didn’t have a reason to doubt this, so he had to move on, make a fresh start. Would the time ever be right for Katie and Jack or had they missed their chance?
When the Time Feels Right by Sarah Lithgow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is my first introduction to Sarah Lithgow and I really enjoyed When The Time Feels Right. It’s a light-hearted love story that will make you smile and bring back those angsty thoughts and tummy butterflies! Sweet, with engaging characters, and a nice story line. What’s not to like? I’d recommend if you like romances with a touch of humour, and a family touch (she falls for her brother’s friend!) Bit predictable in parts but one to enjoy when you want a nice, easy and fun romance read to cosy up to. A new author I believe, so hats off to her with this debut novel.

Oh dear, it is very complex if someone is going to be a father. I had a boyfriend when I was in high school. He was older than me and my parents found out he had a baby with a previous girlfriend. I was forbidden to see him again.
Oh no! That’s awful Robbie. Hope you weren’t too heartbroken.
Good review. Romance with a touch of humor is the best kind of romance!
I agree, I like my romance to be just so Priscilla!
