BLOG TOUR - 99 Days With You

Today is my day for the Blog Tour for 99 Days With You by Catherine Miller.

Sometimes the end is the start of forever…

Emma and Nathan couldn’t be more different. But when they meet in a hospital waiting room, to the sound of a ticking clock and surrounded by faded magazines, they are both terrified, nervous and alone. And they have one fatal thing in common…

Emma lives a quiet life. She looks after her disabled mother. She lives vicariously through the well-thumbed pages and cracked spines of her beloved books.

Nathan spends his days fifteen thousand feet above the ground, soaring through the air, stomach somersaulting, as a sky diving instructor. After a lifetime of having a recurring dream that he would die at twenty-seven, he treats every day like it’s his last.

As fate throws Emma and Nathan together, everything is about to change.

Emma has never been kissed, or tasted champagne, or travelled abroad. Nathan has never fallen in love, worn odd socks, or grown a sunflower from a seed.

Emma and Nathan vow never to waste an hour, knowing that goodbye could come all too soon. But as they lose their hearts to one another against all the odds, have they found each other too late? 

An utterly heartbreaking yet ultimately uplifting novel about the redemptive power of love and how the end isn’t the end at all... Fans of Jojo Moyes, Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain will lose their hearts to Catherine Miller’s stunning story.

In this heartbreaking tale by Catherine Miller, two people find love. However, their love has an expiration date. Emma and Nathan meet in the waiting room of a cancer clinic. They both noticed a significant change in their bodies and are about to undergo tests that will forever alter their lives - and their futures.

Emma lives with and cares for her ailing mother. She works at a library. Working with books gives Emma just enough excitement to get through everyday life. Nathan, on the other hand, leads an exciting life. He jumps out of airplanes for a living. As a sky diver instructor, Nathan lives life fast and hard. Nathan has a recurring dream. He is 27, and will always be 27. So, each and every day is critical to him.

When Emma and Nathan decide to be there for one another throughout this incredible ordeal, two things became apparent: their feelings for one another would grow exponentially, and they only had so much time together. Before they know it, it will be time to say goodbye. How much can they squeeze into their lives?

This novel by Catherine Miller yanked my heart out, stomped all over it, squeezed out any blood left in it, and then carelessly handed it back to me. But, I loved it anyway! I loved watching two people fall in love. I enjoyed watching them share new experiences together. I also loved Emma's relationship with her mother, and also how Nathan treated her mother as well.

I rallied with the pair from the very first page. Reading this book was rather cathartic for me and I felt that this book was a very important read. We never know when it will be our last moment. So, we must make life count. This one-sitting read is one that I will not forget any time soon. I look forward to reading much more by Catherine Miller in the future.

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.


When Catherine Miller became a mum to twins, she decided her hands weren't full enough so wrote a novel with every spare moment she managed to find. By the time the twins were two, Catherine had a two-book deal with Carina UK. There is a possibility she has aged remarkably in that time. Her debut novel, Waiting For You, came out in March 2016.

Catherine was a NHS physiotherapist, but for health reasons (Uveitis and Sarcoidosis) she retired early from this career. As she loved her physiotherapy job, she decided if she couldn't do that she would pursue her writing dream. It took a few years and a couple of babies, but in 2015 she won the Katie Fforde bursary, was a finalist in the London Book Fair Write Stuff Competition and highly commended in Woman magazine's writing competition. Soon afterwards she signed with Carina. Soon after that, she collapsed in a heap and was eventually revived by chocolate.

Since then she's had four novels published and hasn't found a week that didn't require revival by chocolate. She is one eighth of The Romaniacs - a group of writing friends who've supported each other since meeting through The Romantic Novelists' Association's New Writers' Scheme.
