Liz Parker doesn’t like surprises, but winning the lottery isn’t something she would complain about. Before she has time to think about how to spend her new fortune, she’s hit with an even bigger shock than unexpected wealth. She has three months to live unless she finds a one-in-a-million bone marrow donor.
While her medical team scrambles to locate her miracle, Liz throws together a bucket list, charters a private jet, and takes off to see the world. The journey of a lifetime holds even more surprises, including the hunky pilot she’s falling for at the most inconvenient time.
Will Liz die before she can realize her happily-ever-after, or will the universe come through for her one more time? Find out in this humorous tale of true love and adventure!
This romantic comedy kindle book is free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers! A seasoned romance for the ages, perfect for later in life readers who enjoy an older heroine and midlife love.

Book 13! I mean you know that means tomorrow will be Book 14 and that means this feature is nearly over! I can’t bear it!! While I go and get a tissue, check out my review of this gorgeous book Dying to Meet You!

My Review

It is a Rich Amooi book, so come on we all know that I am going to gush! I still have not found a book of his that I don’t like! This book whilst having a darker theme running through it, still left me feeling with a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart and so much love for Liz and Adam.

I devoured this gorgeous book in one day! I was really upset when I got to the end because I had not realised that I was at the end until I got there. The time just flew literally! Even though this book is over 300 pages long, I felt like I had read a novella because of how quickly I read it!

With Amooi’s writing, I find that I get lost between the pages, in the words and I rarely take a breath because his books are just too damn cute! You can not but help smile when you read his books and always want that happy ending!

We are introduced to Liz when she wins the lottery, the big time and from those opening pages where she turned into some sort of paranoid ninja just had me in stitches. To be fair, I would probably do the same. It was crazy fun! However, on the flip side, Liz has just been given three months to live unless she can find a miracle.

Out comes the bucket list and research, lack of spontaneity and in Adam, the hunky pilot, walks into her life and with it disarray. I have lived vicariously through Liz and her travels around the world. Jet setting has never been so much fun from my front room! We went all over the world and we helped so many people….ok Liz did not me, but still!

Dying to meet you is definitely a hearts and flowers book. It gave me all the feels, I smiled, I cried (a bit), laughed (a lot) and got a second chance at love at 50 (not there yet). It is sweet, it’s cute, it’s charming and really NOT cheesy!

I really cannot wait for the next book I cross paths with because I will need to clear my afternoon to read it straight away!

This book still makes me smile and reading this review brings back this book to me. There is always one constant thing with Rich’s books – they make me smile!

Until next time xxx

What have other reviewers said?

Rae Reads says:- I love books that feature travel as a theme and in Dying To Meet You I was whisked away with Liz, Adam and Orlando as they travelled the world ticking items off Liz’s bucket list. There is friendship, love and adventure within the pages of this book all with a brilliant character in Liz. I especially loved the fact that she was a slightly older heroine then pair her with Adam and well I was just sat there smiling away to myself!…This book easily grabbed hold of me with plenty of fun, giggles and heartwarming moments. It really is another brilliant book by Rich Amooi and I’m so glad that I got the chance to tag along with these characters. I enjoyed every single moment!

Ginger Book Geek says:- I soon became addicted to reading ‘Dying To Meet You’ and pretty much by the time I got to the bottom of the first page, I just knew that this was one of those books that would prove to be unputdownable.  I think my inability to put the book down was in part due to the fact that I had taken to the characters so much and I needed to discover what fate had in store for them.  I binge read the book over a couple of days.  If I had to put the book down then I would immediately look forward to being able to pick the book up again to immerse myself in Liz’s world and story.  I soon raced through the book, which didn’t surprise me in the slightest.  I was most disappointed when I finished the book.  I don’t mean that I was disappointed with the ending of the book but I was enjoying the story, the author’s writing style and the characters so much that I just wanted the book to continue.

BRMaycock’s Book Blog says:- I’ll be honest, I was so caught up in her lottery win, I forgot what the book was about and geney mac all the ‘whoa’ ( the sound I make when the pennies drop) hit me HARD! I’m in danger here of analysing the whole book way too much for you, such was its hold on me, so I’ll just tell you their reason for meeting and their first interactions were excellent, the journeys and settings marvellous ( and noted for when we’re going away next ( same place!!), the side characters perfect ( all of them!!) … and all in all a read that hooked me, enchanted me and blew me away.
