Product Description

Product Description

This is the beautifully observed and poignant love story of a woman who has to find out if home really is where the heart is.

Claire appears to have it all - the kind of life you read about in magazines; a beautiful cottage, three gorgeous children, a handsome husband in William and her own flourishing vintage textile business.

But when an interiors magazine sends a good-looking photographer to take pictures of Claire’s perfect home, he makes her wonder if the house means more to William than she does.

New edition published by Accent Press 2014.

Purchased this after reading 'Heartstones' by the same author and although the stories are completely different the superb writing of the author shines through - I would thoroughly recommend reading anything by Kate Glanville and look forward to purchasing more.

5.0 out of 5 stars wondeful first novel 5 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a riveting read, I couldnt put it down. Wonderful insights into family life and relationships, funny and exciting by turns. I think most women would enjoy it and it is exciting enough to appeal to many men. Terrific for long journeys or stays in bed, the time would pass miraculously.

Claire has three beautiful children, a gorgeous husband, William and a growing vintage textile business. The photo shoot by Idyllic Homes of their stunning cottage gives her more than she expected.
William has a busy job by day and evenings and weekends he is passionately extending their home, with a new conservatory, a new kitchen etc.
Stefan the photographer for the magazine is gorgeous and charming and makes Claire laugh, he is good with the children and the cat. There is a definite spark between them and Claire begins to question her perfect life.
Claire's spare time is taken up with creating and sourcing things for her new business,'Emily Love'.
Her and William don't spend much time together like they did before the children came along. Her favourite room is the kitchen filled with colour and fittings she chose and made. The rest of the house has been William and his mothers vision.
Life has a way of moving you in different directions, some of those not planned. This book for me was an excellent read, I warmed to the characters easily and was unsure of the outcome until just before the end. This is the first book I have read by Kate Glanville courtesy of but it will not be my last. I have already downloaded her other book to start next. I recommend you to read this I am sure you will enjoy.
A perfect home is where the heart is.

Kitty Glanville is an extremely talented writer. If you enjoy Joanna Trollope you'll enjoy this book. Do hope she'll write more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feel good story 10 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this story and felt it evoked emotions in me willing the main character to make changes to her life, for good. It is well written and easy to read. I literally read it in a few hours and was sad when it ended. I read this after enjoying "Heartstones" by the same author. I'm looking forward to more for on this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't start this if you have things to do! 11 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read both Heartstones and (in a day!) A Perfect Home, I'll definitely be watching out for more books by Kate Glanville. I love her writing style and how well she depicts her characters - wouldn't you just love to slap the mother in law! Her stories suck you in effortlessly so that turning the light off, getting on with those urgent jobs etc just becomes impossible. You just have to keep reading!
Well done again Kate.

5.0 out of 5 stars great 14 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is not my usual type of book but had enjoyed heartstones by this author so gave this a go and really enjoyed it.She is a good writer her storys are very easy to read,good dialogue between the characters. I hope she writes another novel I would certainly read it. She is very descriptive which really brings the story to life.I expect there are a few mothers like Williams.I certainly recommend this novel.

Sorry, but I didn't enjoy this as much as others seem to have done. Admittedly Kitty (Kate?) Glanville writes well, but her characters weren't particularly appealing in my view. Read more
