Always on my Mind - Colette Caddle

Molly is blissfully in love with Declan, their wedding is only a few weeks away and being organised by older sister Laura, Molly's best friend Ellen is about to become a single mother and then Declan gets a fantastic new job but it takes him to Japan for weeks, meaning the wedding must be postponed.  This leaves Molly wondering if she does really want to marry Declan and as she is dropping him off at the airport she sees Luke, her childhood sweetheart.  Luke suddenly left the country when they were both eighteen, with Declan out of the country for weeks this gives Molly an opportunity to revisit her past, unsure of what her future will be. 

It took me a while to get through this book, to begin with it seemed things took a while to get going, but when they did it was an enjoyable read, there are many different angles to this story- why Molly's older sister Laura is the way she is, how a family can pull together when needed and probably my favourite is Molly's developing relationship with her niece and nephew Ash and Adam. 

I liked the way all the characters intertwined with each other along the way and how each showed their qualities at different times, I also found myself understanding the unbreakable bond between Molly and Luke but at different times rooting for him but then also Declan to win Molly's heart!

I felt the end was fairly predictable but it wasn't a dead cert until the very end- did Molly want to be with Declan, or did she want to be with Luke, or did either of them want to be with her?
