Product description

Hubble Bubble has as many twists, darkness and drama as you would expect from the title, but its true strengths lay in its quieter moments and its humour. Any true romantic will be put under its spell.

Holly Grey only becomes involved in witchery after tagging along with her friend with the intention of looking out for her. However, the pair don't quite realise what they have let themselves in for. Kai has arrived in Yorkshire desperate to find out who he really is, however he hadn't planned on being caught up in magic either...

I really loved this. Hubble Bubble was the first book that I had read by Jane Lovering and I was not disappointed one bit. In fact, I'm very much looking forward to reading more of Jane's novels!

The characters were wonderfully written. What I liked most about them is that they were so realistic. Sometimes in novels there can be characters that are a little too unbelievable and it can be hard to relate to them, but this was not the case at all. The characters were so real, I believed in everything they said and did, and I found I was able to relate to them. Throught the novel the characters had me hooked, I genuinely cared about what happened to them and was always keen to read on and find out more.

I loved Holly, I liked her character straight away, and her personality was fantastic. I really rooted for her in the novel, I was keen to know how her journey would progress and so Holly in particular had me racing through the chapters.

I enjoyed that there were magical elements and witchcraft to the novel, I've always been a fan of these elements in novels and Jane Lovering did a brilliant job of effortlessly weaving these into the plot line. The story flowed so well that the magical elements seemed natural in the story, which made it so much more enjoyable as it felt right for the novel.

Hubble Bubble is a fantastic novel,with lots to offer. There is a lot of humour, magic, and some darker moments too, which makes for a very exciting and gripping read. There is also a beautiful romance to be explored too! I am now a big fan of Jane's and I can not wait to read more from her!

I had heard good things about publishers ChocLit, so when the opportunity to review one of their books written by award winner Jane Lovering I leapt at the chance. Hubble Bubble sounded an interesting read, chicklit/romance with a supernatural twist.

Holly Grey is a sensible, no nonsense woman. So no one is more surprised than her when she agrees to go along to a witchcraft meeting to keep her friend company. Despite thinking the whole thing is a load of tosh, Holly joins in. The group all share their wishes and then it is just a case of waiting for them to come true....

Meanwhile, Kai is in Yorkshire determined to find himself. When he ends up embroiled in a group of women meddling in witchery he finds his life changes rapidly. Brooding and strong, he is an attractive leading male with a vulnerable side. I wanted to simultaneously mother him and inhale the scent of his battered leather jacket.

I enjoyed Hubble Bubble, particularly the dry humour throughout. I thought the characters were likeable and diverse, and was interested to find out more about them. There were times where the story seemed to slow down and I was willing the pace to pick up a bit, but overall I thought it was a fun read. I loved the sections of romance and how the relationships between characters built up as the novel progressed. I am definitely going to hunt out some of Jane Lovering's other books to read as this was original, quirky and entertaining.

Hubble Bubble is out now, published by ChocLit.

I liked that you could make up your own mind about what happened in this book. Did they really do magic? Or was it just by chance? I will go with magic cos magic is always cooler.

Holly was a practical woman. She takes care of her brother. She does not do long term relationships. She does not see the big problem in her own life. But I liked that about her, it brings the drama in a good way. She needs to think about what she really is doing and then she can move on.

The love interest then, oh how these two jumped around each other and never got it done right. Kai is a journalist with issues of his owns that he is trying to deal with. 2 emotionally scarred people finding their way, and each other. It was a long way there, but for these it just could not happen fast. That would have made no sense.

Yes yes the witchy stuff. They form a circle, things gets spooky, and there are creepy men in the woods. Things gets scary too. Not all is what it seems. And maybe the circle gets some happy endings of their own too ;)

Magic or no magic? Drama. Love and friendship is what this book brings.

Originally published on Serendipity Reviews.
I think one of the things I love best about Jane Lovering's books is her ability to make paranormal sound so contemporary. In this book, we find Holly practically dragged along to join a rather dodgy women's group that dabbles with the occult. There is something very WI about this group and I found myself pining to join them. Only Jane Lovering could make dabbling with the occult sound like a knitting circle.

Holly is a great protagonist. The kind of person with wit and style every girl dreams of being. Her one liners had me choking with laughter. She is extremely happy with her life and doesn't want to make any changes...or so she thinks. Along comes dark, mysterious bad boy Kai and her life turns upside down. If I'm truthful, I didn't like Kai to begin with which I believe is intentional. He comes across as a rather nasty womanizer when you read his letters and I couldn't see a future for the two characters. But as with all good books, characters change as the story progresses and Kai turns into the man you would like to tie to your bedpost!

The rest of the characters were quirky and interesting. I loved Vivienne! But then I would. I have always wanted to be a white witch and now I can be - within Jane's novel!

The plot has some very interesting twists, especially at the end. I was really surprised by the events that occurred.

With the magical element in the story, I do feel you are left to your own conclusions as to whether it is real or not. It's a bit like religion, you either believe in it or you don't and I think the author has left it open. Things happen in the story but they could always be put down to coincidence.
