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 needs a shoulder to cry on, Sophie might be the perfect person to help – if only she hadn’t sworn off romance for good…

Join the gang at Primrose Hall for laughter, tears, friendship and romance, perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley, Heidi Swain and Julie Houston.

 My Thoughts

The Primrose Hall series of books have a likeable set of characters and a lovely sense of family and community. Not that everything goes smoothly all the time, In this fifth in the series, Pia has some serious challenges to face and Jackson's brother, Tom, has to step up to the plate. Working to help out at the Hall, he meets Sophie, who has had a difficult time and is trying to re-establish her life on an even keel. 

    It is interesting to see how attitudes change as the story evolves, especially Jackson's who has stood back, emotionally, from his newly acquired brother. I can absolutely visualise the Hall and its neighbouring countryside. Characters from previous stories appear from time to time, so it is good to catch up with their lives. I am hoping for another in the series as I think that Pia's story still has further to go. This is one of those series which leave you feeling uplifted, looking on the bright side.

In short: Family, friends, romance
