    Five Pulsing, Glowing, Sparkly Stars!

    How lucky am I to have another novel by a favourite author to read and enjoy? Not only does Julie Houston never disappoint, but each book exceeds even my high expectations! Charlotte Maddison - Charlie to her friends and family - returns home at the end of a working day to find her boyfriend's wife outside the flat she's been sharing with Dominic. Suddenly homeless she does what most young women would do and heads home to Yorkshire. Expecting only her parents in residence, she is surprised to encounter her younger sister Daisy is also home. Visiting their great-grandmother, temporarily living in a nursing home, they find out she's been sitting on a secret of gigantic proportions for sixty-odd years, and the revelations to follow could provide them both with a way to further their chosen careers. What a fabulous read! Set in the same area of Yorkshire, there are brief appearances from a few characters in Julie's recent novels 'Goodness, Grace and Me' and 'The One Saving Grace' both of which I recently read and reviewed. This, however, is an entirely new scenario, concerning a family I hadn't met before but who are funny, entertaining, and have one of the most beautiful love stories in their history that I have come across. A thoroughly satisfying read and one which I have gloried in and loved everything about. It's a well structured, beautifully written book and I couldn't find fault even if I wanted to. Such a great read deserves only the highest of recommendations and I'm more than happy to give it five pulsing, glowing, sparkly stars!

    Could’ve been a great story

    The storyline has so much promise but I, personally, did not enjoy the way the author told the story nor her style of writing. Some parts just seem to be overly drawn out for no real benefit to the story and chapters begin and end abruptly. The ending too is very abrupt and unsatisfying. Very disappointed.

    Coming Home to Holly Close Farm

    Another lovely book by JH I did not want to put it down. Enjoy how JH weaves all her character's lives together as she introduces new circumstances into a charming rural environment.
