About the Author
At the age of five Kellie Hailes declared she was going write books when she grew up. It took a while for her to get there, with a career as a radio copywriter, freelance copywriter and web writer filling the dream-hole, until now. Kellie lives on an island-that’s-not-really-an-island in New Zealand with her patient husband, funny little human and neurotic cat. When the characters in her head aren’t dictating their story to her, she can be found taking short walks, eating good cheese and jonesing for her next coffee fix.

When I was reading this, it quickly came apparent that the story of the festival was more of a secondary story and the reader was going to become immersed in the feelings between Jodie and Christian the man she had hired to help with making the festival a success.
Personally I was a little disappointed with this, I knew there would be a love interest in the book and I was all for that, however I thought there would be more about the festival, which I didn't get. Perhaps I was just not in the mood for a chick lit type read and wanted the book to have a little more substance. Saying this it was an enjoyable read and I read it pretty quickly.
I would recommend this if you have read the other in the series or you just want to escape in a light bubble for a couple of days.
With only weeks until the little Devon village of Rabbit’s Leap holds its first ever festival, Jody McArthur is desperate. She – more than anyone – wants to raise the funds to rebuild the local swimming pool and when she fell pregnant with her twin boys, it was the village who was there to support her. So, to stop disaster in its tracks, she brings in bigshot London events manager Christian Middlemore to make The Big Little Festival the huge success everyone deserves.
But Jody is totally unprepared for the impact reserved-but-gorgeous Christian has on Rabbit’s Leap – and her heart! Except Jody has avoided relationships for so long, and anyway, she’s sure romance between a country-born-and-bred single mum and a career-focused city boy would be impossible – wouldn’t it?
As tensions rise along with the home baked scones and miles and miles of bunting, Jody is about to find out!
My Thoughts :
The Big Little Festival is the second book in the Rabbit's Leap series. It can be read as a standalone although some of the characters make a return in the story and its nice to of read a bit about them before.
Jody McArthur, is a single mum to twin boys Tyler and Jordan. Jody wants to give something back to Rabbit's Leap by rebuilding the local village swimming pool, with the help of handsome event planner Christian, they organise a festival in just 3 weeks.
There is an obvious spark between Jody and Christian, but as Jody is sworn off men, will she let her guard down and can Christian work his charm on her and the villagers?. I really like this couple, Jody is down to earth and relatable, she is very determined and wont let anything get in her way. I really enjoyed reading about some things that happened in the past for both couples. This is a feel good story with some fun and humour. Kellie Hailes, kept me hooked throughout. Love this village and its occupants.
