Blurb; Nell Chapman has always assumed that one (or the other) of her twin sons would help run her antique shop once they finished university. The boys, however, have other plans, when they announce they’re going backpacking for a year, leaving Nell feeling bereft and lonely. Not only that, but with their father (her lying, cheating ex-husband) back on the scene and demanding half of the business, there might not be anything left for her boys to help manage when they return.
However, she hasn’t counted on the unexpected support of local landscape artist, Silas Long. And neither has she considered the possibility she might fall in love again – especially since Silas is so distant and moody, and has his own cross to bear.
Should Nell take a chance and risk her heart, or should she leave well alone? And why has Silas painted her portrait if he doesn’t feel anything for her?
My Review; Book three in the Ticklemore series but would read fine as a Standalone. I have been with this series since the start and this time we find ourselves in the treasure trove with Nell. It was like returning home to familiar characters and this cute little town.
In this story we focus on Nell the owner of the treasure trove and Silas the local artist, who soon find themselves together over a painting that could be worth a lot of money. But with Nells ex husband on the scene demanding half her business Nell is under pressure and stressed. Silas is a dark horse with a hidden past but he could just be the hero Nell needs right now.
An adorable story! Uplifting. Romance. Cute. A brilliant read. I really enjoyed it. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me. I can’t wait to see what this little town brings us next.
Blurb; Florist Daisy is loved-up and blossoming. Boyfriend Dominic has proposed marriage!
However, Dominic isn’t in any rush to buy a ring, and meeting the parents is looong overdue. What is the problem? After all, Daisy’s mum has already bought her big hat and wants to know the wedding date!
Then careless words plant seeds of doubt and, like weed, Daisy’s concerns begin to multiply. Is Dominic hiding something?
Meanwhile, sexy ex Harry is back on the scene and begging Daisy for a reconciliation. He thought the grass was greener with HER but now says he made a mistake. Is Harry – for once – being genuine, or simply leading Daisy up the garden path?
New neighbour Seth seems like a fun guy, but a single throwaway comment has Daisy mimicking a species of Calla Lily – Red Alert! It’s time to do some digging. But even she never anticipated a mad car chase across London or unearthing a shocking secret that changes everything.
Sparks are set to fly in this gorgeous romantic comedy about love, trust, and new beginnings.
My Review; Where do I even start with this? I devoured this book in the majority of a day. This was just what I needed… A feel good and laugh out loud funny read. Gave me very similar vibes to Bridget Jones. It had me smiling throughout. Daisy is such a funny character I felt like she was a friend.
She has an ex husband. Her current fiance & the hot new neighbour who’s just moved in. She’s surrounded by men but which way will she go? Who will she choose? I loved how she had conversations with herself throughout and doesn’t mind a good drink or three. Her bestie is heavily involved too helping her run Daisys flower business.
The best part had to be when she went into full spy mode & then the ending ofcourse. Beautiful. I loved it all! Highly recommend. The perfect rom-com. A full five stars from me. This is the first book I have read by this author & I am looking forward to reading more after this. Brilliantly written. Easy to devour. Will remember this story for a long time.
Blurb; Slip on your sunglasses, spring has arrived!
When Finn Gallichan, the new man in artist Jools Jones’ life leaves the boardwalk to go travelling for several months she’s not too worried, she has her paintings to work on as well as keeping busy helping her grandmother run Boardwalk Books, the only second-hand bookshop in the village. She’s happy to wait for Finn’s return to pick up where they left off their relationship. That is, until she decides to secretly help a new customer trace a copy of a book he wrote years before and meets Marius Arnesen, a glass artist who, fascinated by her paintings, asks her to take part in an art exhibition.
When she begins to suspect that Finn isn’t quite the person she had hoped and Marius steps up to save someone close to her, she wonders if maybe she’s made the wrong decision…
My Review; This is book four in the Boardwalk by the sea series. I came into this series at book three so had to finish off with this one so I can go back to book one and two. Each book focuses on a new character from the town. Since I read book three I was already familiar with the town and most characters but this book focuses on Jools. The artist. Lovely jools.
I just love this little town and all the characters, it’s like being welcomed home again. It’s a very uplifting, friendly, romance filled and community coming together story. I just love everything about it. Jools is an artist, a very good artist but she also works alongside her nan in the bookshop below their home. Perfect setting. We see a lot of jools love life in this story and her friendships with the other girls. It’s a beautiful read. A break for the mind.
Loved it all. Especially Mr handsome Marius eh. Wink wink. Hot. Highly recommend. Sad to see this series end. But least I can go back to book one and two. Brilliantly written. Easy to devour. well deserved four stars from me.
