Holly Martin has done it again, I think the idea of an around the world trip appeals to anyone. Seeing the world and trying all these exciting things, well it’s exciting and amazing – especially for someone like me who is scared of flying, the dream and the reality are two very different things. I loved this book as it was a great read but on a personal level, I love reading books where I get to discover the world and see more of it, as I may not get to discover the real thing. Holly writes each new place beautifully, and certainly makes me want to travel to all these places, but as with her heroine Eva, seeing the world through Holly’s eyes is just as wonderful.
What can I say about this book? A wonderful read that I could not put down, like at all! A beautiful read, as its such a warm book, a good one to read if you missing summer. A fun thing about this story, I bought it as soon as I saw it in the shops. A week later, I got an email as I am on Cathy Bramleys email subscription list – telling me I needed to read this wonderful book! I was so happy to be ahead of the curve that day!
A sweet and bright tale that moves quickly and draws you in with its wonderfully beautiful characters.
If you can read this heart-warming story of a lady running from her past, with the intention of not getting too close to people, but eventually making some lovely friendships, without getting the urge to go out in the sunshine, start a garden and make new friends, are we even reading the same book?
One Summer in Italy is a beautiful tale for more than one reason. Sue Moorcraft’s descriptions of Italy, make me feel as if I am still there myself. And if you have never been, she invokes such wonderful pictures, senses and beautiful story telling that I believe anyone can imagine the beauty that is Italy.
In today’s digital era, with new ways of interacting the digital world being created everyday, this fresh take on a social media obsessed thirty something is an amazing read. After realising her life is in disarray, Daisy agrees to a digital detox with her sister, whom has her own agenda for escaping life. The obsession with everything digital and social media is the crux of the story, it is what drives everything from beginning to end, and I think it is genius, comedic outlook on what our digital obsesses future may look like.
Serendipity or “Ren” to her friends is a property seeker, and when she seeks out a property on the Emerald Isles, in a small friendly town called Ballykiltara, she soon “seeks” out more than she bargained for.
