In Me and Mr Jones, the three Jones' brothers all must face up to the idea that their parents want to give up their B&B business, which also means giving up the family home. With only the youngest brother showing any interest in taking over the B&B, who has no serious relationship with someone who could take it over with him will the Jones' loose their family home?
Each of the three brothers have their own stories; however it is their partners and wives who have the main story lines within the book. Alicia, the traditional mum, who has a family, but is expected to do so much more; Emma, who would love to be a mum but is finding it difficult to get pregnant; and, the potential Mrs Jones, Izzy, who is a single parent and has caught Charlie's eye.
As I have already said, Lucy Diamond's books are one of my favourite summer authors, and this book is again one of my top tips for a beach read this year, 2013. It is an easy read, but a great, believable read. The story lines are cleverly interwoven and the characters are believable in today's world.
I would really like Diamond to write a sequel to this book as I would love to see what happens after this book finishes. I am sure there is another great story just waiting to be written about the Jones'.
I received this book from the publishers, Pan, in return for an honest review.
