Book Review: Before I Do By Sophie Cousens


What would you do if ‘the one that got away’ turned up the night before your wedding?

Head-in-the-stars Audrey is about to marry down-to-earth Josh. Though they are polar opposites, they have a healthy, stable relationship; Josh is just what Audrey needs. But romance should be unpredictable and full of fireworks, and as the big day approaches, Audrey’s found herself wondering if Josh really is The One.

So, when Josh’s sister shows up to the rehearsal dinner with Fred, Audrey’s What If? guy–the man she met six years ago and had one amazing day with–Audrey finds herself torn. Surely Fred’s appearance the night before she is due to get married can’t be a coincidence. And when everything that could go wrong with the wedding starts to go wrong, Audrey has to ask herself: Is fate trying to stop her from making a huge mistake? Or does destiny just have a really twisty sense of humour?


Heart warming read that transports you to a fascinating world! 🌟

This novel is about love, second chances and what if’s. I am a firm believer of what happens in the past, stays there as your move on with life and learn from it.

This particular novel focuses on the main character and a special one-night she had with a man.
If a novel draws me in from the beginning that’s an excellent sign for me. This novel did that.
The characters are very well written, thought out and have their own personalities and background which brings you the reader, into their world. Without going into too much detail you can know a good bit about the characters.

As people, we always have those lingering passing thoughts of ‘what if?’ This novel shows the main character thinking about these things which I found to be the interesting element.

The dilemma of the characters are very authentic as well that it can easily happen in reality as well which I loved. Can a person that is the complete opposite of you be ‘The One’ or is it someone so completely similar?

Yes, of course the nice guy is nice, but is he missing something? That’s for you to find out in this read!

4/5 Stars
