Sunny Sundays at Primrose Hall by Jill Steeples #Review

  I am delighted to be on the tour to celebrate a return to Primrose Hall. Sunny Sundays at Primrose Hall by Jill Steeple was published by Boldwood Books on April 15th.   Primrose Hall is more than Jackson Moody and his fiancĂ©e Pia’s home – it’s the heart of the community. The Sunday craft fairs in the renovated stables are a popular draw for the locals and tourists alike, enticed by the beautiful surroundings of Primrose Woods as well as the irresistible goodies on display. But for Sophie Wright they’re a chance to forge a new life and a new business. After leaving behind a turbulent relationship, Sophie is starting again – and romance is the last thing on her mind. Drop dead gorgeous Tom Moody, Lord of the Manor Jackson’s newly-discovered older brother, is loving being a member of the Primrose Hall community. Content to muck in where he can be helpful, he’s just happy to be part of the family. But when tragedy strikes, Pia needs Tom more than he ever expected. And when Tom ne

Books, Life and Everything- an update

Well, it's been almost two months since I started this blog, so I thought I'd take stock and see where I was up to. So far, I've loved doing this and making little changes to it as I go along. I've also enjoyed looking at other people's blogs, all so individual.

I thought I'd a fill in a few gaps about me. 

I live in a small village on the outskirts of Yorkshire, within hailing distance of Manchester. I've always loved reading but it drifted a bit over the years and I've rediscovered it now that I have more time on my hands. I have a B.A. in English and a M.A. in Literature. For the latter, I wrote my dissertation on Emily Bronte and her Gondal poems. I really love Victorian writing but I am trying to widen up my reading range. I think that's why I've tried to sort my books out into the centuries , so that I can keep track of how I'm doing.

I've also started to write. I like the idea of looking at things from lots of different perspectives and that what you see on the surface isn't what is actually going on in a person- not always, anyway.

I'm not intending this blog to be anything other than a celebration of books and writing- some old favourites and some new friends. If you would be interested in writing a guest blog, I would love to hear from you.
Please comment on anything that strikes you, either on the blog or you can email me on I'm also on Twitter - @bookslifethings.

All for now and happy reading
