Heartwarming story about relationships,
This review is from: Finding Colin Firth (Paperback)
I'd first heard about Finding Colin Firth earlier this summer and of course as it mentioned the gorgeous Colin Firth it automatically appealed to me as he's one of my favourite actors so I was very happy when a copy of the book popped through the letterbox.
The story is told from the viewpoint of three very different women, Veronica Russo, Gemma Hendricks and Bea Crane, who all have their own secrets but the one thing they all do have in common is a love of actor Colin Firth.
Veronica had left Boothbay under a cloud as a teenager and has been living a quiet life since she returned to the town a year ago but her love of baking and her 'healing' pies brings new people into her life.
Unemployed Gemma first came to the town to attend a friend's wedding but after being offered an assignment for the local paper she decides to stay a while to think things through especially the news of her shock pregnancy and her husband's plans for them to move out to the suburbs to be near his family.
Bea Crane is still coming to terms with the death of her mother so she's shocked to receive a letter a year later from her mother telling her that she had been adopted as a baby. After this discovery she decides to pack up her few belongings and search for her birth mother which eventually leads her to Boothbay.
And when rumours soon start flying that their idol will soon be in town to make a movie, one things for sure life will never be the same again for the three women as their paths cross.
Finding Colin Firth was a heartwarming story about relationships with delightful characters and a fun plot which made for hours of enjoyable reading.
There seems to be a common theme with the book titles for Mia March's books as last year I bought a copy of her debut book The Meryl Streep Movie Club, which I still haven't managed to find the time to read yet, so I wonder which actor her next novel title will feature...
