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 fiancée 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

And Now You're Back by Jill Mansell #Review


I was thrilled to be able to participate in the celebrations of Jill Mansell's latest novel, And Now You're Back. 

One magical night in Venice, Didi fell in love. But it ended - and he left without even saying goodbye.

Now, thirteen years on, Shay Mason is back.

The old spark is still there, but Didi's determined to ignore it. As manager of a stunning Cotswolds hotel, she's happy at last, and soon to be married. Anyway, Shay isn't staying. He's made a promise to his father. He's going to keep it. And then he'll be gone.

But Shay's return stirs up long-forgotten emotions, and the scandal that led him to leave raises its head once again. It's time for buried secrets to come to light. And it seems that this was someone's intention all along . . .

From the beloved author of IT STARTED WITH A SECRET comes a fabulous new novel about love, friendship and finding the way to your best life.

'Gripping and incredibly comforting' MARIAN KEYES

'Like a little blast of sunshine - uplifting, heart-warming and supremely feelgood' SOPHIE KINSELLA

My Thoughts

What a pleasure reading this book was! The writing style flows so beautifully that the story sped by. It is a gentle story of second time around and starting over. The friendships which are depicted are genuine and heart-warming. Some of them are surprising. Didi and Shay's friendship shines through from the start and I am sure that everyone who reads the story is rooting for them. They are both determined to respect each other's present relationships.

    I enjoyed reading about the village community and loved the map at the beginning which set the scene. Jill Mansell has created a whole world in a gorgeous Cotswold setting. There are one or two mysteries which are there to be uncovered, which include some lovely characters who add to the feelgood atmosphere. I thoroughly enjoyed the book which is highly recommended. 

In short: Are second chances possible or is it too late?
