It Had to Be You by Lynda Renham

It had to be you
Published by Raucous Publishing in February 2014.

“When 29-year-old Binki Grayson is offered a Christmas bonus by her boss at the office party she didn’t imagine he meant a quickie over his desk. Things for Binki just go from bad to worse and by Christmas Day she is not only jobless but boyfriend-less, so when she discovers her late Aunt Vera has left her something in her will she thinks things can only get better. What she doesn’t realise is that her inheritance comes with a complication by the name of William Ellis.”


Firstly I’d like to thank Raucous Publishing for sending me this eBook to read and give an honest review. I absolutely love Lynda Renham’s books as you can tell from my previous reviews here. I couldn’t wait to see what kind of fun and laughter was waiting for me in this book!

Wow I certainly wasn’t disappointed – I was laughing out loud at the very first chapter, Lynda’s familiar, humorous writing style simply sparked off the page at me.  Binki’s (what a fabulous name) life seemed to be spiralling downwards and I felt sorry for her even though her reactions were so comical and made me giggle. An unexpected inheritance looked like it would turn things round for her but somehow it led to William and their tumultuous relationship entertained me from the moment they met to the very last page.

I could really relate to some of the dilemmas Binki faced, the author created scenes and characters that felt very real and brought them to life in such a fun way.  Some of my favourite moments included: an unwanted thrill drill, a frustrating experience at the supermarket self-checkout, an interesting career change and loo therapy (don’t ask, just read the book)!

Tension built towards the end and left me completely unable to put my Kindle down, I ended up reading into the early hours of the morning because I just had to know what would happen next.

This was another entertaining, feel-good read from Lynda Renham – I would highly recommend it if you’re looking for laughs!
