Within the first few chapters I quickly invested a lot in the main character, Holly. She was on the verge of leaving the very dark tunnel she had lived in for a couple of years and I desperately wanted to hug her. She was brave on the outside and didn’t want anyone to feel sorry for her, but sometimes in the deepest, darkest hours, the things we hold dear come back to haunt us.
I loved Ciaran as soon as he showed up, even if he was a little bit of a unwelcome character. The more I got to know him, the more I fell in love with him. He was just right for Holly, a welcome respite to her darkest hours. The chemistry between Holly and Ciaran was electrifying and I was so sad to finish the book. It is one of those books you want to hug and read again and again.
For a debut novel, I would say it is extremely well written with an excellent well paced story line that would give established authors a run for their money. It has you desperate to find out what will happen next between Ciaran and Holly, reminding me of Jilly Cooper’s classic novels. I am now a life long fan of Anouska Knight and I can’t wait to read her next book.
Can't wait for this authors next book.
The perfect book to take on holiday this summer :-)
Our female lead here is Holly who after losing her husband is focused on her business Cake. She and her partner Jesse create the most amazing cakes and it is through a cake that she meets Ciaran and his crazy family. His father was a real character, I found him really rude at the begining but after a while I started warming to him. I also like Jesse, he plays a big role at the begining but then he takes a role more in the background, which was a shame.
Holly's loss makes some of the scenes of this book quite emotional. Her life is kind of grey after losing Charlie and I had the feeling that she was a bit lost. But then Ciaran arrives and brings colour back to her life (quite literally in fact, but I'm going to leave it here, you'll find out when you read it). I enjoyed reading this book and seeing Holly find new meaning to life. I’ll definitely be keeping one eye out for another Anouska Knight book.
