“This book left me in happy tears, it is funny, quirky and romantic and contains one of my favourite ever heroines, Janie Morris, my secret girl crush, so if you haven’t picked up this series yet, you need to now!” ~ Under the Covers

If you had spoken to me in April last year, the chances are that I would have been telling you about this fantastic book I had just read called Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid, it was funny, it was romantic, it had a fantastic heroine; I was gushing like a fountain. Now, although more (equally fantastic) books have come out in the series, I confess Neanderthal Marries Human had me more excited, I love Janie and Quinn and was excited to see them again and was cackling with glee when it changed from a novella to a full length novel.

A full length novel that I devoured. Once again Penny Reid had me laughing like a loon, drooling and fanning myself, luckily not all at once…mostly. What I loved from Neanderthal Seeks Human was still very much present in this book; Janie’s weird and wonderful thought processes and random trivia, Quinn’s aloof hotness and devotion to Janie and all the funny bits in between.

This book gave you a great opportunity to see Quinn and Janie together, normally once a couple’s book has finished the most you will see them is as secondary characters in someone else’s book. It was interesting to see that although they were the same characters I know and love, that they had also changed and evolved along with their relationship. Janie wasn’t quite as closed off to others and Quinn may have even smiled a little.

But this book didn’t just focus on the romance, we got to see the knitting girls.  These books are great as they don’t only focus on the love story, but recognise that friendship is important as well. Some of the girls have books of their own and I can’t wait for the rest of the crew to have their turn.

This book left me in happy tears, it is funny, quirky and romantic and contains one of my favourite ever heroines, Janie Morris, my secret girl crush, so if you haven’t picked up this series yet, you need to now!
