Hello Stranger

Sadie Montgomery is an artist but hasn’t had her big breakthrough yet until now. She is one of the finalists of the National Portrait Competition. This is her chance! When she goes to the supermarket to buy some things to celebrate, she faints in the middle of the road. A good samaritan saved her life. In the hospital, the doctors find out that she needs brain surgery as soon as possible, otherwise, she could die, just like her mother did. But after the surgery, she can’t see faces literally. She got face blindness and Saide can only hope it is temporary. Her dog is staying at a Vet clinic for a few days, where she meets Dr. Oliver Addison. She immediately falls in love with this guy and knows they are going to marry one day. Even though, she can’t see his face. In the elevator of her building, she meets Joe. Sadie thinks that he is a player, who has zero respect for women. But when they start hanging out after Oliver Addison stands her up on their date, she realizes he is not as bad. But is it smart to fall in love with someone when you can’t see his face?


OMG! Yes!! I honestly loved this book. It was hilarious and just amazing! This was one of the books I couldn’t stop reading. I thought the first book I read this year (Make Me Wilder – Serena Bell) was great, but this one was even better. I loved every single minute of it.

The story itself is hilarious. She has to paint a portrait for this competition, but that suddenly gets a lot harder when she gets face blindness. And then there are these guys she thinks she is in love with, even though she can’t see their faces. Although, now I think about it. Maybe that is a sign of real love. She loves the guy for who he is and not for what he looks like. The story has a plot twist at the end, and it was a great plot twist. Although, I saw it coming. I think there were many hints. But I still enjoyed it.

The characters are likable. Sadie is a poor artist who has her big breakthrough. Joe is likable as well, even though Sadie thought he was a player who slept with every single woman in their building. Sadie’s stepsister however is an annoying little bitch. I wanted to scream at her. Sadie is unfortunate that she can’t recognize her immediately anymore, so she can run away.
I only wonder how Sadie could all afford those check-ups for her dog and buy so many coffees. She was literally broke and there was no income. That did not make any sense.

The writing style was great and this was definitely one of those books I couldn’t put down. It was just too good. I enjoyed every single minute of it. I couldn’t wait until I got home and could read it again. This makes me wonder if her other books are just as good as this one. Because if it is, I want to read them now, all of them. I did some research and I just realized that ‘Happiness for beginners’ is also by her. I watched that movie recently on Netflix and I loved that as well. So maybe they are all good. I think Katherine is going on my instant-buy list. But Hello Stranger is definitely one of the books I would recommend.
