It honestly doesn’t matter which name is on the front cover of the book, Sophie King or Janey Fraser, you can be sure there will be an entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable story waiting for you. I love books with multiple storylines told from the point of view of different characters, and in ‘After the Honeymoon’ we are introduced to a great cast of different characters which each have their own story to tell. I specifically enjoyed Rosie’s tale; I immediately liked her and was curious to see how things would work out for her and her son Jack.Read more ›
Emma is a young mum of two who gets married to her childhood sweetheart Tom. She loves Tom and their little family, but had never been too fussed about getting married. They married at Tom’s insistence and one of their wedding presents was a honeymoon at a small villa on a Greek island. Just the two of them, without the children. With her mum looking after the children, and Tom getting sick as soon as they arrive, one week becomes a testing situation for the newly weds and gives Emma some chance to be herself for the first time in a few years.
Winston is a TV star fitness trainer (I was imagining a modern Mr Motivator!) and has married mother of two Melissa. They met on set when she was his make up artist, and three months later they are on honeymoon at the same small villa in Greece, in an attempt to get some privacy away from the press on their own. That is until his step children get shipped over by their father who should be looking after them, and the past comes back to haunt him.
Rosie is part owner of the Villa Rosa and runs it with the help of her son Jack, friend Greco and island lothario Yannis. Rosie is trying her best to keep the business going and has been helped by friends back in the UK to spread the word about the villa. When Winston turns up, she has some decisions to make on whether to drag up the pastor just to let sleeping dogs lie.
As soon as I started reading this book, I just knew I was going to love it.Read more ›
Your heart aches for Emma. Her new husband Tom is a prat of the first order, spending his honeymoon in bed long after his travel sickness passes, on a Greek island when he doesn't like the heat - and don't we all, like Emma, drink a few too many and behave a little silly when we're on holiday? She could be a younger version of any of us, but hopefully none of us would have made her life choices. Winston and Melissa were slightly more one-dimensional early on - and not particularly likeable - but they fleshed out nicely as the novel progressed, as did their children from hell and Melissa's obnoxious former husband. Rosie is thoroughly lovely, as is her teenage son - I couldn't quite understand her attraction to the Greek fisherman, but I guess we all have a bit of Shirley Valentine in us somewhere. The Greek island setting is perfectly drawn, and the writing is really excellent, with the dialogue done especially well. There's plenty of humour, but a few opportunities to shed a tear too. The "true honeymoon" quotes that started each chapter were a really lovely addition, with some real horror stories.
I've recommended so many books for your sunlounger now that you'd really need a separate suitcase, but this book would really be a perfect choice. A lovely light and enjoyable read - I loved it.
