For those who follow me, you may have seen we previewed the first chapter of the final book in Estelle’s Did I Mention I Love You? trilogy over on Scot Lit Fest a few months back. Well, now the book is out and I’m fairly chuffed as part of the blog tour to offer you the first three chapters of Did I Mention I Miss You? for those who haven’t had the chance to delve in just yet.
Estelle built a massive fanbase by self-publishing the DIMILY story on Wattpad, which is now – obviously – available in three rad books. It follows the tales of Eden, who finds herself swept into a new world in California as she goes to visit her dad and meet her step-family. You won’t believe where that summer takes her, and the years that follow, nor will you believe quite how much this story will hook you in, right up until the last word of this final book.
You can read my review of the final installment of the trilogy here, and check out more on Estelle and the DIMILY trilogy at Black & White’s website. I’ll spare you my babbling – dive back into the world of Tyler and Eden with these three chapters…
Did I Mention I Miss You?
The water is cold, yet that doesn’t stop me from wading into it, only up to my ankles. I have my Converse in my hands, the laces wrapped around my fingers, and the wind is picking up, like it always does. It’s too dark to see far out over the low waves, but I can still hear the ocean crashing and rolling around me, and I almost forget that I’m not alone. There’s also the sound of fireworks, of laughter and voices, celebration and joy. I almost forget, just for a second, that it’s the Fourth of July.
