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

Snow Days with You by Leonie Mack #Review

 

{ love a Leonie Mack romance and this winter story just fits the bill! Snow Days With You  was published by Boldwood Books on October 20th.


When Luna Rowntree gets an unexpected and life-changing legacy from a man she’s never met, she’s determined to find out why – even if it is Christmas Day and her family are expecting her.

So, with only her mother’s ashes for company – it’s a long story, but Luna knows her mother would have wanted to come on the adventure too – Luna sets off in her trusty Astra to the skiing resort in Chamonix, where her mysterious benefactor had lived.

But her little car isn’t designed for driving through snow-covered mountains, and when she runs out of fuel heart-breakingly close to Chamonix, Luna is relieved to be saved by her very own knight-in-shining armour. Well, knight in mountain rescue uniform anyway.

Yannick is charmed and baffled by Luna’s mission, and before he knows it, he has agreed to help. But Yannick has his own secrets calling him from the mountains, and his own reasons to run away. As he helps Luna understand her past he realises he has to face his as well if he’s ever going to risk opening his heart to love.


 My Thoughts

This is quite an unusual plot, set in Chamonix, just right for a winter read. The mountains dominate the story and the elements are integral to the story. Luna is completely out of her comfort zone, travelling to Chamonix in search of a few answers from her past. She has not come to terms with the loss of her mother but finds that there is a lot she does not know about her past. 

    Yannick has issues of his own to come to terms with and is adapting to his new life as a divorced father. You sense his sensitive side and he obviously cares very much for his young daughter. There are some romantic moments in the story but both Luna and Yannick find it difficult to admit how they really feel. There are plenty of secondary characters to give the story colour and the mountain rescue team camaraderie adds some humour. Luna finds that she has a mystery to solve which takes her by surprise and which upturns her view of her self. In the end, courage and seizing the day seems to be the way to go.

In short: fortune favours the brave
