¿Existe la receta para un matrimonio perfecto? De ser así, ¿cómo mezclar los ingredientes en su justa proporción? Igual que al preparar un pastel, un día puedes acertar y al siguiente no: ayer demasiado dulce, hoy un tanto insípido, mañana una pizca amargo. Se dice que el elemento imprescindible es el amor, pero existen muchas clases de amor y muchas maneras de entenderlo. Y además, hay que añadir otros factores como el romanticismo, el sexo, la fidelidad o la afinidad de intereses, por no hablar de la mayor renuncia de todas: la independencia personal. Precisamente esto último se ha vuelto un martirio para Tressa, una escritora neoyorquina que, recién llegada de su luna de miel, se plantea la pregunta del millón: ¿se ha casado por amor o por miedo a quedarse sola?
Seguramente Tressa se sentiría mucho mejor si leyese los diarios de su abuela Bernardine, unas páginas de incalculable valor humano donde se relata cómo, en los años treinta, contrajo matrimonio con un apacible maestro de escuela después de que su familia no consintiera su boda con el impetuoso Michael, a quien amaba con ardorosa pasión. Entre recetas tradicionales de tartas de ruibarbo, mermelada de grosella y pan casero, el lector descubrirá la verdad que la propia Tressa ignora sobre sus abuelos y su madre, y quizá también encuentre, de paso, la clave para conseguir el verdadero matrimonio perfecto.

I think one of the reasons for me liking this book so much is because I really liked the women in this book, or rather two of them, Ava and Sheila. Rose was a bit harder to like, although, in the end, I did find myself warming up to her.

It Was Only Ever You is such an interesting story about three very different women who end up playing very important roles in Patrick Murphy's life. We have Rose, his sweetheart in Ireland, Ava, the warmhearted woman with low self-esteem who falls for him despite being engaged to another man and the self-assured Sheila who is hellbent on turning Patrick into a star.

For me was Patrick not the star of the book, he was the thing that connected the woman, but what I found interesting was the period, the life of the women and their struggle. I found myself totally fascinated with each of the women's journeys (yes even Rose's now and then), although there were some parts that made me roll my eyes mentally, mostly when Rose took the center in the story. But, even Rose would in the end, as I mentioned, grew on me. And, even though it was not the ending I wanted, I still liked how Kate Kerrigan decided to end the book.

It Was Only Ever You is an intriguing book, with many strong women in focus. I quite liked the book and I'm looking forward to reading more from Kate Kerrigan!

I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review!

Very different writing style.
Two stories, one present day heroine, one history of her grandmother.
Both heroines were quite dislikeable and selfish at times but that's maybe due to their honesty in their perspective.
No intimate scenes.
Modern day heroine is constantly unsure of her feelings for her new husband and tries to resolve this by kissing an ex. She planned to have sex with him but couldn't go through with it.
The grandmother is refused marriage to her "Micheal" and feels she's in love with him throughout most of her marriage.
Both husbands deserved a sainthood.
HEA sort of. The grandmother comes to certain realisation so thats her HEA.
