Searching for Steven by Jessica Redland

This is a fabulous debut novel from Jessica Redland. Sarah, the protagonist, is truly delightful, and feels like someone you’d want to hang out with in real life. The book has a very original premise – Sarah finds an old tape recording of a clairvoyant she once visited. It turns out that the clairvoyant was accurate about a lot of things, but her final prediction sends Sarah’s world into a spin. She is about to meet the man of her dreams – and his name is Steven. So begins Sarah’s search for her very own Steven, but where can he be? As she embarks on a series of dates with various Stevens, is Sarah blind to the possibility of finding love with the ideal man, who just happens to have the wrong name? Was the clairvoyant wrong after all? Or does fate have one last twist in store for her? Searching for Steven is a lovely novel, full of warm and realistic characters and a beautiful setting – Whitsborough Bay, based on the real life town of Scarborough. I also loved the prequel to this novel, Raving about Rhys, and am eagerly awaiting the second book in the Whitsborough Bay trilogy, published by So Vain Books. Well written and thoroughly enjoyable. 5/5 Buy Searching for Steven here51x2DOeWfVL._AA160_
