I recently discovered that books about art really are my thing! Accidentally in Love is a book that’s all about love and finding yourself, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
What is Accidentally in Love about?
In the space of a week, Katharine Patterson has quit her job, decided to move back home, and broken up with the guy she thought was the one.
No big deal.
Because Katharine has a plan. She’s going to open her own art gallery, just like she’s always wanted. What she’s not going to do is worry about boyfriends.
Then she meets Kit, a handsome and talented local artist. He might be the most stubborn person Katharine has ever met. He might also make her feel like no one ever has before.
And Katharine might be about to fall accidentally in love…
What did I think of Accidentally in Love?
Let me start by saying that I think this was a funny book. I laughed a lot while reading this, because of the snarky comments of both the main characters Katharine and Kit. I also really loved that art was the main topic in this book, because I really love reading about art. It’s just a lovely topic.
I love how Katharine decides to turn her life around and do what SHE wants to do, not what people expect her to do. She decides to open her own art gallery and we get to read through the whole progress of it. The story was a bit slow because of this. The book in general took me long to finish as I thought there were too much details and events that didn’t always have a significant meaning in my opinion. I did fly through the last 50% though!
Kit was such an intriguing character in my opinion. He has this whole past he carries along with him, and it takes him long to elaborate a bit about it. I do think he was a really lovely character, with his own complicated personality.
Another downside to the book I experienced is that I didn’t really like that some events happened too quickly, at an unrealistic pace. People falling in love too quickly, people making up after a fight in an unrealistic manner,… This is probably just a personal preference though.
I do recommend this book if you like a slow-paced book about art, finding yourself and love!
Thank you NetGalley and HQ Digital for the free e-arc. This in no way affected my opinion.
