City girl Laney is on a horrendous blind date when suddenly she takes a phone call from her father Nate - who reluctantly tells her he has suffered a minor stroke. Escaping clutches of her terrible dinner date, Laney ups and moves to St Pontian, a tiny little country village to be with her father. Laney has many testing times ahead of her, including attempting to run her fathers B&B as he gets back on his feet, learn the way of the village life, attend committee meetings and hopefully there might be time for love.
Firstly there's Martin, a sweet, kind man who is always there to lend a helping hand or give a bit of advice, but the downside is there's not even a flutter of butterflies in the initial meeting. Or there's Toby, a dark, brooding, devilishly handsome farmer who has a cling on ex-girlfriend and doesn't seem interested, yet he sets her heart on fire. Will she find that spark she's desperately searching for?
I have to say I absolutely LOVED this book. From the beginning I could not put it down, the storyline was so exciting and interesting that I was hooked to the pages. Holly Cavendish has created the perfect tone to the story - It has the right level of romance, friendship, and laughter blended together. Throughout the story I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with the eligible bachelors and I cringed at some of the situations Laney found herself in.
The characters were brilliant.Read more ›
Laney is easy to love. She's down-to-earth, kind, funny, feisty, but also vulnerable at times and she yearns for a fairy tale romance; she wants fireworks. Both the eligible bachelors of the village are very appealing; Martin is a seriously sweet solicitor whilst Toby is a hot headed, stubborn and passionate farmer. Add in a brilliant cast of secondary characters, and you have an enthralling, true-to-life book that had me laughing, crying, feeling the characters' pain and wanting to celebrate the good times with them.
I look forward to reading more of Holly's books in the future and and can thoroughly recommend.
Autumn and Bonfire Night is my favourite time of the year, and so I looked forward to settling down with this book after I spotted the full-of-fizz cover in Whitby Bookshop, and knew it would make a great addition to my collection of seasonal books. The story is told in the third person which gives an overview rather than an in-depth look at each character's feelings and motivations. There is plenty of description of the village, the landmarks and the weather, making you feel you are there and if you aren't, then you want to be. It has a real community feel, and this aspect is also used well in relation to all the committees held in the village to bring humour into the story. Bonfire Night metaphors are also used very well and I loved the description of bonfires, fireworks, the season, the pub, and food! I groaned somewhat at the cliché of yet another stock chick-lit character of the City PR with her amazing life and designer labels, but I think this was necessary to show how Laney becomes less pigeonholed as she settles in to the village and life with the locals.Read more ›

A predictable and boring plot line that never really had me fully engaged. Was sad about this as the reviews sounded good.Published on 24 Nov. 2013 by tootie

Well, it is the next book written by Ruth Saberton under another name, and the next that I didn't really enjoy. Read morePublished on 4 Dec. 2012 by Agi
