Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was a really cute story that really leans towards a women’s fiction story, but it has some great romance moments as well!

Libby and Frank meet on a bus. Libby finds out that Frank has been riding the bus since the 60’s looking for his lost love…💔…right?? So Libby begins a search for Frank’s lost love, and she teams up with another person, Dylan, who is also connected to Frank.

I really enjoyed this story, and I loved the heartwarming actions and the lovely characters! Libby’s drive to help Frank out of the goodness of her heart was so beautiful, and it really drove this story. While this is about Libby helping to find Frank’s lost love, there’s also a great character journey for her. I enjoyed it all!

Strangers aboard a London bus unite to help an elderly man find his missed love connection in the heartwarming new novel from the author of The Last Chance Library.

When Libby Nicholls arrives in London, brokenhearted and with her life in tatters, the first person she meets on the bus is elderly Frank. He tells her about the time in 1962 that he met a girl on the number 88 bus with beautiful red hair just like hers. They made plans for a date at the National Gallery art museum, but Frank lost the bus ticket with her number on it. For the past sixty years, he’s ridden the same bus trying to find her, but with no luck.

Libby is inspired to action and, with the help of an unlikely companion, she papers the bus route with posters advertising their search. Libby begins to open her guarded heart to new friendships and a budding romance, as her tightly controlled world expands. But with Frank’s dementia progressing quickly, their chance of finding the girl on the 88 bus is slipping away.

More than anything, Libby wants Frank to see his lost love one more time. But their quest also shows Libby just how important it is to embrace her own chances for happiness—before it’s too late—in a beautifully uplifting novel about how a shared common experience among strangers can transform lives in the most marvelous ways.
