Surpassed my expectations!

I wasn't sure I'd be ready for a Covid book yet, but this one actually surpassed all expectations.

In Lockdown on London Lane, we follow a group of tenants who are all locked in their apartment building for a week due to someone in the building testing positive. We see the stories of about five different apartments, who are all tied together in some way but kept fairly separate given the lockdown. We see relationships go in every possible direction, with an unexpected ending that brings the whole building together.

It definitely gives very early pandemic vibes, which is why I think I was able to stomach it. I remember the complete uncertainty at the beginning when none of us had any idea what was going on. I feel like we know so much more now that I felt separated from this period of naivety and could focus on the story.

Thank you to NetGalley, BookishFirst, and the publisher for an advance copy of this book!
