One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern

Hi, everyone! Today I'm a stop on the TLC book tour for Cecelia Ahern's latest, One Hundred Names.

Kitty Logan screwed up and it could mean the end of her career. Bombarded by sources she believed to be truthful, Kitty ran with a story that ruined a man's life, and now she's suffering the consequences. Worse yet, her mentor - and one of the few people who still supports (and employs) her - is dying. 

Constance has been Kitty's rock, her moral support, and her guide from the beginning of her career. During their last visit, Constance mentions a story, one she'd hoped to write but never had the chance. She directs Kitty to a file simply called "names" and says she'll explain everything on their next visit. But Constance passes away before that happens. Now Constance's magazine wants to run an homage to her and has given Kitty permission to run with her last story. But when Kitty opens the file all she finds is a list of 100 names. 

From the start of her career, Ahern has been known for her warm and heartfelt stories. P.S. I Love YouLove, Rosie; A Place Called Here... every one of them has a magical element (figuratively,  though some literally) and I've enjoyed each of them. One of the things I love best is that each new book is completely different from the last. Whether it be a story about dying wishes, invisible friends, a strange place to get lost in, each book is a gem that shows great range and talent on the part of the author.

One Hundred Names is certainly no exception. Here we have a mysterious list of 100 names and Kitty's attempts to connect them - to tease out the story that her best friend always intended. And along the way she learns a little bit about herself as well. One Hundred Names is a wonderful feel good story, one I guarantee you'll love! (After my own heavy reading of late it was exactly what I needed and I gobbled it up in one sitting!)

Rating: 5/5
