As i have already said, the book is a great read. I loved Scarlett's writing style, it is so easy to read and I could loose myself in it. I quickly devoured the book and wanted to read more! The characters were all down to earth and ones which many people would be able to recognise in many villages, towns and cities around the country. I found that Joanna was exactly how I imagine some of the ladies on shopping channels - believing that they are always on show, never being able to relax and slob around in tracky bottoms or old, baggy t shirts. I also loved Alex, a first time pregnant mum, with the husband who jumps at any twinge, but who is quite enjoying being able to get people running around for her. Katy, was desperate to make the hotel work and would really like a bit more support from her husband who has left a high powered job and looking forward to a quieter life but forgets that the hotel needs running as well as the family life too.
The cover of the book is stunning, a black cover with gorgeous pink foiling and white wording - this book really stands out on the stands and I hope it jumps into many peoples hand!
I am recommending this book to everyone! I have already told people standing looking at the book charts to buy it! It is the perfect book to curl up with on a cold winters evening and to loose yourself in. Buy it and enjoy it!
This is Scarlett Bailey's debut novel and I can't wait to find out what she will be writing next - I am sure she will have a very good future in the book market.
Thank you to the publishers, Ebury Press, for sending me the book to review.
