Review: Our Stop by Laura Jane Williams

Opening sentence: “Shit. Shit, shit, shit.” I don’t tend to read many unashamedly romantic books, ones that have a love story at the centre of their story, but after enjoying one or two great ones recently – including this very book – I’m starting to wonder why I don’t.
