Warnings of Gales by Annie Sanders

Although it has taken me a long time to read (due to being busy), I quite enjoyed this book. I instantly warmed to the character of Imogen but it took me a while to like Jo, who at first irritated me a little. But in many ways, this reflected how the characters' feelings developed throughout the book. By the end, I loved both of these characters in their own way. The other main female character was Sophie, but I didn't feel very connected to her so felt she could have been developed a bit more. However, I did enjoy how the story was told from the two perspectives of Imogen and Jo, who both clashed and were on very different journeys in their life. It reveals how women can totally misunderstand each other but eventually realise the grass isn't always greener on the other side, which I feel is an important message, and deal with their own problems head on. I give this book 8/10.
