New Beginnings By Johanna Nield

Natasha Arden loves music, food, sex, clothes (not necessarily in that order….) and her boss.

Unable to tell anyone because he’s married, she pours her heart out in the only way she knows how: a private blog.

Her feelings are tested when Jamie is suddenly widowed, and their relationship flips dramatically as he starts to lean on her for support.

Once foot-loose and fancy-free, Tasha is now frantically striving to navigate a minefield of moral dilemmas and social taboos. Follow her story as she endeavours to understand grief, love, loss and most importantly: her choices.


This book was set out in a blog format which allowed for us to get the perspective from the main character Tasha. I liked the format as it is different style to read than I normally do.  The issues addressed in the book was good and it dealt with how grief can affect people differently. So, I really enjoyed that.  

I really liked the relationship that growed throughout the story and felt that it didn’t feel rushed like some authors do. I liked the little bits of dialog that was shown through the blog style as, then it still gave some perspective and interaction from the other characters.

The only thing that stopped me giving 5 stars was the beginning was a bit slow to get me hooked in to it. Also, the ending didn’t leave me shocked or surprised and I like that in a book but that is just my personal preference.

I would recommend this book it is a good book that I enjoyed reading.
