Sometimes you’ve got to run away to find yourself…
Twenty-four-year-old Lucy needs a fresh start. Forever single and frustrated with her studies she gives up everything to run a little library in the leafy village of Tilley Moreton.
Lucy loves reading almost as much as she loves fixing other people’s problems, so starting a book club seems like the perfect opportunity to do both. As she meets her new members, it’s clear she’s going to have her work cut out for her. Handsome but silent Callum is the biggest puzzle of them all…
But Lucy’s meddling begins to cause more problems than it solves, and no one is more surprised than Lucy when Callum steps in to help. Could there be more to him than people think?
As Callum and Lucy start working together to fix the broken hearts of the library’s most loyal customers, the first sparks of romance begin to fly.
Can they right all the trouble Lucy has created, and might there be a chance for a happy ending of their own?
Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour. I love a good chicklit book and this one appealed to me instantly. I love the idea of a book club and wish I knew of a local one I could attend.
While Lucy may be the main character the other members of this book are highly featured and I would say they are more than secondary characters. Lucy runs a book club at the local library. The other members are Lia, Hattie, Oscar and Callum.
Lia dreams of being a dancer but she is a full time carer to her mum. Hattie is a single mum to daughter Poppy but there is a family rift that means that her relationship with her own mother has been tough recently. Oscar lost his darling wife and now the loneliness is setting in. Callum comes from a not so nice family. He wants nothing more than a loving caring family of his own.
I really loved hearing each of these characters stories. Emma does a wonderful job of making sure we understand each character. Their motivations and their dreams.
This story is beautifully written and it might even feature in my books of the year post in a few weeks time. I’m really looking forward to reading more of Emma’s books in the future.
