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

Snug in Iceland by Victoria Walker #Review

 

Who wouldn't enjoy a romantic escape to Iceland to see the Northern Lights? Victoria Walker's Snug in Iceland was published on October 1st by Ever After Books.


Rachel Richards is stuck in a rut. Her boyfriend Adam barely notices her most of the time and her life in London isn’t as exciting as it should be. When the company she works for, Snug, asks her to oversee the opening of a new store in Iceland, she jumps at the chance for a change of scenery. Exploring Reykjavik with the help of Icelandic tour guide Jonas, Rachel discovers that life is out there waiting to be lived. As she falls in love with Iceland, she begins to see what is important to her and wonders whether the life she left behind is what she wants after all…



 My Thoughts

This is such an enjoyable read. The story takes you off to Iceland with Rachel who at the beginning seems to have the ideal life going in London. Pretty soon, you begin to suspect there are a few cracks in her relationship with Adam and that actually this seemingly great lifestyle is covering up for her dissatisfaction. The trip to set up a new retail outlet in Reykjavik offers her the chance to re-evaluate everything. It also shows us a gorgeous place, full of snow, sparkle and cosy touches. The Northern Lights add that magical touch.

    The description of life in Iceland, and the warmth of the characters she meets there, paint such an enticing picture. Can Rachel take a risk and start over or will she return to her safe life? No spoilers here, but if you are looking for an uplifting story to snuggle up with on a col wintry night, this is ideal.

In short: Warm characters and gorgeous scenery
