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

A Holiday Romance in Ferry Lane Market by Nicola May #Review

 

It is great to return to the Ferry Lane Market. Nicola May's A Holiday Romance in Ferry Lane Market was published on October 13th by Nowell Publishing.

 
When soap actor Sabrina Swift loses her way due to a public scandal, she packs up her life, heads to Cornwall and randomly finds herself running a Christmas gift shop in the quaint and quirky Ferry Lane Market.

Changing her looks and identity to keep her anonymity, the newcomer starts to make friends and enemies as she walks a frosty path in the established community.

And as rumours start circling that the outside market is going to be shut down, Sabrina is not only ensconced in an unexpected love triangle but is also faced with a difficult decision that could alter both her life and those of the inhabitants of Hartmouth forever.

Charming characters and a beautifully written setting make for a delightful and uplifting tale that explores themes of self-discovery, belonging and the importance of following your heart.


 My Thoughts

The community around Ferry Lane Market are back in force and welcome a newcomer into their ranks. Sabrina has good reason to escape from the social media hell of show business and chosen to hide in plain sight in Cornwall. Some keep her secrets and she finds some true friends in her new life. You soon realise that there is more to Sabrina than meets the eye and her feelings about her family are complicated and show a much more vulnerable side to her. She has lost track of just who she is and a major part of the story centres around Sabrina's rediscovering her true desires. At times, she is a little hard to like but ultimately, she keeps your sympathy.

    For most of the story, you are unsure what Sabrina is going to decide on as her next venture. no matter how capable she seems in her daily life, there is a raw vulnerability in her which is crying out to be accepted and cherished. You know exactly how you want her story to end of course but at several moments, this seems in doubt. This is a thoroughly entertaining read with romance, characters and  a good degree of jeopardy thrown in.

In short: Follow your dreams
