5.0 out of 5 stars How far would you travel for the man you love?, 16 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Wrapped Up In You (Kindle Edition)
Wrapped up in You is Carole Matthews 19th novel.

Janie Johnson is a 30 something single hairdresser living on her own in a little cottage in Buckinghamshire with just Archibald the Aggressive (her cat!) for company.

Her Clients and Friends constant check on her love life gets her down. Nightmare blind dates and the news that her Ex is getting married and his Fiancee is with child pushes her over the edge. Before she knows what she is saying she blurts out that she is off on an Adventure to Africa!

Arriving in the baking heat in Maasai Mara in Kenya whilst the UK is covering in Christmas snow with the knowledge that all her friends think she has lost the plot! Janie meets Dominic, a Maasai Warrior who is to be her guide for the next week and who takes her breath away the moment she meets him. Can "Just" Janie stop herself falling head over heels in love with Dominic and return to her boring in life in the UK or could she dream of a happily ever after with him?

I was delighted to get an advanced copy of Carole's latest book armed with a hot chocolate and a blanket, (well it is a Christmas read) I set about Janie's journey. Straight away I was hooked and couldn't put it down. Janie is a very loveable character and I could understand her need to show her friends she had the guts to try something different with this trip to Africa. The sheer joy of her relationship with Dominic and the tenderness Carole writes of their developing love at the beginning of the story had me turning the pages to see what happens next.

An absolutely delightful story, packed full of comedy moments and also the changing dynamics of friendships as people reach new chapters in the lives. l truly felt Janie's sadness at many parts of the story and you just can't help willing it to turn out right for her. Is it possible to make true love work when you are from very different backgrounds or should Janie listen to what her Friends are telling her?

Perfect winter read that I totally recommend that I know you won't be able to put down!
