I just loved being back in Chilton Crosse in this second part of Traci Borum's series and if possible I loved this story even more than the first one! Traci managed to create a wonderful setting with the cosy village of Chilton Crosse and all its colourful inhabitants that each have a story of their own to tell. 'Finding the Rainbow' focuses on twenty-something Holly Newbury, a heroine whom is incredibly easy to like and warm to. Holly has taken care of her younger sisters the last couple of years after their mother's death and because of this she hasn't really managed to build up her own life. I was rooting for Holly from the start and really enjoyed reading her story. However, the novel doesn't solely focus on Holly; her sisters, father and other characters often make an appearance and also all have their own bit of storyline, which resulted in a thoroughly enjoyable tale in which all of that comes together.Read more ›
Chilton Crosse is a picturesque English community where everyone practically knows everyone else. It was nice to re-visit and learn about more people in this town. It is big news when a film company chooses an estate at the end of town to film the movie Emma. Everyone gets in the spirit and are lucky enough to play extras in the process of filming. Emma is one of Holly’s favorite Jane Austen stories. She decides everyone should read the book since the movie is being filmed there. She organizes a book club to be held at her cantankerous Aunt Gertrude’s house to try to draw her into the town’s excitement. She even invites Fletcher Hays, the American playwright who adapted the book for the big screen, as their resident Emma expert. They become fast friends and the book club is a huge success.
Each chapter is opened with a Jane Austen quote, which ties into the story. The plot is character driven with many twists that draws different family members into the spotlight. Family secrets are exposed, which must be dealt with, a teenage infatuation goes awry, and a hidden emotional time bomb explodes. To top all of this off Holly is suddenly struck how much her life parallels Emma. This turned into a satisfying read that left a smile on my face.
FYI: This is Book 2 from the Chilton Crosse Series, however it can be read as a stand-alone story.
Format/Typo Issues: I was given an advance reader’s copy but I noticed no glaring proofing errors.
