So the story begins with Layla, All loved up with her boss, Alex (Yes she went there, stupid, STUPID girl) until he breaks her heart by taking new office girl, Sarah Jane, away. Left with only a post-it note for an explanation and a very red face she decides she can’t cope with life in Brightion anymore so runs away to her childhood holiday place, Trecastle, Where her childhood friend, Hannah, lives.
Life in Trecastle is much more laid back than Brighton and she soon forgets all about Brighton but her feelings for the rat bag Alex she can’t seem to turn off, even when presented with the local hottie, Joseph. Even though there is a spark between them Layla refuses to admit it, much to Joseph and my fustration! Will they or wont they? Will Alex come to Trecastle and beg forgivness? Will friendships survive certain secrets? So many questions and only the book has the answers
I LOVED this book, even though at times i wanted to scream at Layla! How could she still have feelings for that rat bag Alex?!?
The story was well plotted and i never got lost with where the story was going…. In fact i was up until 1.30am because i couldn’t put it down!
The characters were very believable, if fact I could probably name at least one of my friends after each one!
Layla ~ Like everyone, has her ups and downs in life and never seems to have her foot out of her mouth, for the love of god woman…… Keep your mouth shut! And her temper O.M.G!
Penny ~ My word I love this woman! Say it how it is girl Out spoken and a VERY friendly flirt.
Hannah ~ The quite-ish one with secrets and kinda got on my nerves at times.
Joseph ~ WOW!Read more ›
I particularly like the way the author weaves the special beauty and charm of Cornwall into the practical and messy lives of the three women. The rugged cliffs and secret caves offer a great backdrop - I'm feeling in need of a trip back to Cornwall!
Hoping the next book isn't too far away...
I empathised with plucky Layla, fell in love with Joe (and Jim) and wanted to spend a stormy winter night in the pub listening to Jim's band. Hannah was a complete doll, but as for Penny - well, I'd say she was an acquired taste who redeemed herself in the end. In all, a most satisfying read and I'm already looking forward to Ms Struthers next novel.How about Christmas in Trecastle?
From the very first page I was totally captured by the story and found each page involving me personally in what I believe to be the best holiday read I have enjoyed for years!! The characters are totally believable and the autor's descriptions of the Cornish countryside and coastline are breathtaking!
I even found myself falling a little in love with Joseph but I wont spoil it for you...just hurry up and read it yourself to fall into his web too!!
An excellent read and I shall be holding my breath until Shani Struther's next book appears!!
Very well done on a fantastic book and I shall look forward to seeing all my fav characters hopefully soon on the big screen......this would be an excellent film!!
