I’m pleased to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for the wonderful and uplifting The Flip Side by James Bailey. Thank you to Sriya from Michael Joseph for giving me the opportunity to read and review this lovely book.

About the book:


It’s love . . . what’s the worst thing that could happen?

When Josh proposes in a pod on the London Eye at New Years’ Eve, he thinks it’s perfect.

Until she says no.

And they have to spend the next 29 excruciating minutes alone together.

His life is falling apart.

Realising he can’t trust his own judgment, Josh decides from now on he will make every decision through the flip of a coin.

Maybe the coin will change his life forever.

Maybe it will help him find the girl of his dreams . . .

My Review:

Oh my goodness, what a much needed tonic The Flip Side by James Bailey turned out to be! It tells the story of unlucky in love Josh who, after a disastrous wedding proposal, decides that from now on he will make every decision through the flip of a coin. As you can imagine, what follows is an often hilarious, sometimes moving, always heartwarming tale that sees Josh try everything from going on a a blind date to searching for the girl of his dreams.

The Flip Side is a light and easy read that really lifted my mood. Filled with warm and memorable characters I couldn’t help but like, it’s a story that kept me thoroughly entertained from beginning to end. There’s never a dull moment to be had as the action moves along at a cracking pace, with Josh himself being a character it’s impossible not to like as he stumbles his way through the many ups and downs of life.

James Bailey has written a gloriously uplifting book that’s as heartwarming as it is hilarious. The perfect book to relax and unwind with, especially at the moment in these  uncertain times we find ourselves living in, The Flip Side is a book I would recommend to anyone who wants to be left with a big smile on their face as they turn the final page.

Simply wonderful!
