Meet Me In Bombay shows that romance between two soulmates can truly go the distance through time and war.

In Meet Me In Bombay, Maddy Bright and Luke Devereaux meet for the first time, their hearts beating fast and every second of their thoughts are consumed by each other. Their love showed no boundaries and every second they spent with each other their love only seemed to get stronger.

But while Luke and Maddy have their bliss, Luke is called away on duty to the front line after Britain officially joins the Great War. While things start out steady with nerves of the war, tragedy strikes for Maddy when she discovers that Luke has died.

In a military hospital in Surrey, we are given the perspective of a young man who is recovering from injuries after being in the front line, suffering amnesia and other injuries. He doesn’t recall who he is or who the woman that constantly appears in his dreams is but is always out of reach.

Can this man find his way back? Can Maddy learn to recover after the death of her soulmate?

I gave Meet Me In Bombay four stars, loving the sparks and romance and the struggles that both Maddy and Luke had to go through while reading. Maddy fought for her husband, believing that he didn’t die in the front but rather survived and was perhaps looking for her. She never stopped to look for him, not until years after his death and the birth of their daughter, Iris, when she was pushed to let go and move on. But even then, Maddy never truly stopped looking.

Maddy was an amazing character and she grew splendidly throughout the book. You could see the way she fights for what she loves and even makes amends with her loved ones that she is a truly magnificent main character. She believes in things that sometimes people tell her it’s useless to believe in and that is what I loved about her character, her determination, hard work, and the strength of her love really shined throughout the book.

Our second character, the man with amnesia, you can really see the way he fights to remember and gain his memories back. He is always in reach to this woman in his dreams, getting hints and the haunting of this memory but when he is so close to grabbing on, the memory runs away and he is left in the mystery all over again. His plot when trying discover who he is and what his true purpose throughout the book was such an important plot line and I found it amazing because you never truly read from the perspective of someone with amnesia trying to gain his memories back.

I thoroughly enjoyed this read and while I did find there were some plots that could have been dived deeper into, this was definitely a great read to have and I had a pleasant time reading this.

Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
