Nadia gets the 7.30 train every morning without fail. Well, except if she oversleeps or wakes up at her friend Emma’s after too much wine.
Daniel really does get the 7.30 train every morning, which is easy because he hasn’t been able to sleep properly since his dad died.
One morning, Nadia’s eye catches sight of a post in the daily paper:
To the cute girl with the coffee stains on her dress. I’m the guy who’s always standing near the doors… Drink sometime?
So begins a not-quite-romance of near-misses, true love, and the power of the written word.

Book Review: Our Stop by Laura Jane WIlliams
If there is one thing that I love, it is a fantastic rom-com. Our Stop has a Sex in the City vibe and lots of interesting and diverse characters. The way that Laura Jane Williams has written this novel is a lovely tribute to other books and films about love by chance, such as You’ve Got Mail. There are lots of wonderful references to other similar works in the book that make it so much fun. However, the plot does move a bit too slow for my liking, which is a shame because there is so much to enjoy here.
❀ Enjoyable Characters
Nadia and Daniel are characters that readers will instantly enjoy. Nadia is a smart woman who is super quirky and full of personality. I love how she is trying to make small changes in her life to help improve herself, including catching the early train. Daniel. on the other hand, is also a lovely character. He has a real soft side and isn’t afraid to take chances. It is easy to realize that the two characters are destined for one another.
❀ Quick Read
Our Stop by Laura Jane Williams is a book that fans of the rom-coms will want to add to their beach bags this summer. It is a quick read that will satisfy those who enjoy a love story that is fun and has interesting characters. Perfect for your summer TBR.

Ugh. A slow moving book is torture! This one sounded like it had such possibilities, too!
It is a great story, but if you are one for a fast moving plot, it might not be a good fit. 😉
Oooh that’s too bad that it was slow moving!
Yeah. I did enjoy it, but it could have been more enjoyable if it had moved along faster.
I love the cover design!
Same! It drew me in right away! 🙂
Not something I’d pick up for myself but it sounds like a lovely read (aside from the slow moving plot)
