    This is a guilty pleasure sort of book something for the bath, something for when you are feeling down or a bit ill It s a very gentle sort of romance novel romance against a middle England village setting There are lots of cups of tea in it Really, this is romance in the literary sense ie, it describes a world that is slightly rosier and pleasant than the one I actually live in But there are also romances in theexpected sense one between a 20ish single mother and a one night This is a guilty pleasure sort of book something for the bath, something for when you are feeling down or a bit ill It s a very gentle sort of romance novel romance against a middle England village setting There are lots of cups of tea in it Really, this is romance in the literary sense ie, it describes a world that is slightly rosier and pleasant than the one I actually live in But there are also romances in theexpected sense one between a 20ish single mother and a one night stand who unexpectedly comes back into her life and the other between a middle aged mother with a substantial country house and two grown up sons I must be getting old, because I was a bitinterested in the latter Katie Fforde is one of those authors who you feel that you know through her books And she is a very likeable sort, with an appealing sense of humour and a fondness for a cuppa and a piece of cake It is a soothing world to dip into from time to time Oh, to live in an England where summer is a string of long, golden days instead of the typical damp squib

    Review originally posted at All Books Considered 3 STARS Katie Fforde is one of my favorite British authors I just love her quirky chick lit and especially the towns villages she creates in her books they usually involve an outsider moving into the small and quaint place and being welcomed eventually by the town I really liked Sian and her son Rory but I adored Gus and his mother, Fiona I was almostinvested in her story than the main one but this was a fun and fast read My o Review originally posted at All Books Considered 3 STARS Katie Fforde is one of my favorite British authors I just love her quirky chick lit and especially the towns villages she creates in her books they usually involve an outsider moving into the small and quaint place and being welcomed eventually by the town I really liked Sian and her son Rory but I adored Gus and his mother, Fiona I was almostinvested in her story than the main one but this was a fun and fast read My one gripe about this was the conflict when it evolved, it was swift and severe and due to a lack of communication This could have totally turned me off the book and I was seriously put off by Sian in this instance but the HEA was good and I just loved so many of the other characters that I still enjoyed this overall.This is a great summer book as I mentioned, I always love the villages that Katie Fforde creates and this one is no exception This one also reminded me of another favorite with this particular twist on the second chance romance trope, Just for Fun by Rosalind James My other favorite Katie Fforde s are Highland Fling and Stately Pursuits both highly recommended, especially if you love British chick litFiona Matcham and Rory were up the far end of the garden when Sian brought out the mugs of tea Sian sat down on one of the chairs and sipped hers, watching them together She was pleased that Rory had forgotten to be shy and was making friends She had been a bit worried about taking him away from everything he knew in a busy city out into the country, although, as Richard had pointed out, it was in a village, not in a remote location miles from anywhere There was a school, a pub, a church and two shops, one of which was also a post office

    I received this book through netgalley in exchange for a honest review This was an incredibly charming book.Usually, only fantasy books capture my attention but, I make myself read outside of the genre occasionally and this book was the one I picked to freshen my palette I m always apprehensive about chick lit books and I was hesitant to start Truly, the beginning was pretty ordinary but, at about 20% into the book I was pretty hooked I won t go as far as to say this is a favorite book of min I received this book through netgalley in exchange for a honest review This was an incredibly charming book.Usually, only fantasy books capture my attention but, I make myself read outside of the genre occasionally and this book was the one I picked to freshen my palette I m always apprehensive about chick lit books and I was hesitant to start Truly, the beginning was pretty ordinary but, at about 20% into the book I was pretty hooked I won t go as far as to say this is a favorite book of mine but, probably one of my favorite chick lit books The characters were so well rounded and I loved all of them except Melissashe s the only one How dense or mean can a person really be The romance was meh It was there but, I didn t think there was much progression There is a bit of a love triangle but, if this is a concern for you I wouldn t worry too much It is set up as a love triangle but, it isof the classic questions Love or Money or Security or Uncertainty that kind of triangle.Really enjoyed reading this book and I m looking forward to readingof this author s books in the future I recommend this book to people who like little English village settings and or charming chick lit novels that warm the heart and put a smile on your face

    i received a copy of this via NetGalley in return for a fair and honest reviewI loved this gentle romance The perfect book for summer that just takes you away from all the doom and gloom of the world, and transports you to an idyllic english village and a sneaky peek at the inhabitants and their lives and loves Sian has just moved into the village with her son Rory, and they re looking for a new start in a smaller place away from the noise and bustle of London She moves into a rented cottage a i received a copy of this via NetGalley in return for a fair and honest reviewI loved this gentle romance The perfect book for summer that just takes you away from all the doom and gloom of the world, and transports you to an idyllic english village and a sneaky peek at the inhabitants and their lives and loves Sian has just moved into the village with her son Rory, and they re looking for a new start in a smaller place away from the noise and bustle of London She moves into a rented cottage and immediately starts on creating a slice of the good life in the garden with flower beds and a small vegetable plot with the help of 4 year old Rory of course As with all villages the locals are eager to introduce themselves to the newbie, and Fiona is first to take Sian under her wing and they immediately get along like a house on fire.We also get to see Fiona and her efforts on trying to move on with her life and trying internet dating.Soon there are complications though when Sian is faced with a true blast from the past and soon finds out the link between Gus and her new friend Fiona, and this makes life a little unsettling when she has to face the truth and let people in and confront her true feelings.A really sweet story of new starts and reconnecting with the past

    2,5 starsIf I had any curiosity about Katie Fforde s book, now I can say it has been satisfied And so satisfied is my curiosity now, I think I won t read another one again.This book is fluff Very predictable and annoyingly seen through pink lenses fluff Almost all the characters are likeable, or have some likeable trait, and even the less pleasant ones are not disgustingly bad.Sian how do you pronounce that is a single mother, with a four year old son, who meets Angus, the father of her s 2,5 starsIf I had any curiosity about Katie Fforde s book, now I can say it has been satisfied And so satisfied is my curiosity now, I think I won t read another one again.This book is fluff Very predictable and annoyingly seen through pink lenses fluff Almost all the characters are likeable, or have some likeable trait, and even the less pleasant ones are not disgustingly bad.Sian how do you pronounce that is a single mother, with a four year old son, who meets Angus, the father of her son and a one night thing, when she moves from London to the country side And after five or so years they are still attracted to one another Which is amazing considering they don t the other s feelings.Then there s Fiona, Sian s new neighbour and Angus s mother who, after a bad marriage to her second husband, decides to explore the world of internet dating She finds the man of her dreams, obviously, in an unexpected way at least for her , but before we are treated with some of her mis adventures with men she meets via the dating website These were fun to read and made Fiona s partsenjoyable than Sian s, which tended to be one themelodramatic side.This is not the type of book I would normally read, but I suppose it s that kind you book you can enjoy while at the beach or by the swimming pool Despite its predictability, it is a light and easy read Good enough to spend some time in summer afternoons

    I love Katie Fforde and believe I own every book she has written, but this was a disappointment The heroine was indecisive and dishonest with her boyfriend, and she whined far too much There was a dated quality to the book as if the manuscript had been in a drawer far too long with awkward references to the Internet and online dating The hero was pleasant, but the issues that kept them apart were primarily a lack of communication that reflected poorly on all involved and were not very convinc I love Katie Fforde and believe I own every book she has written, but this was a disappointment The heroine was indecisive and dishonest with her boyfriend, and she whined far too much There was a dated quality to the book as if the manuscript had been in a drawer far too long with awkward references to the Internet and online dating The hero was pleasant, but the issues that kept them apart were primarily a lack of communication that reflected poorly on all involved and were not very convincing
