  • five-star read you would go Five thousand miles 4

    Five Hundred Miles From You by Jenny Colgan a five-star read you would go Five thousand miles for. This is number three in the Scottish Bookshop series but they truly can be read as stand-alone as I haven’t read the other two as I didn’t realise it was a series, I will be going back to read them though as I adored this one and if they are about who I think they are I can’t wait to hear more. This is a moving story and shows how life can change in an instant, and how everyone should carry a donor card, I have carried one for over 25 years now and live in Wales so even if I don’t have my card on me I know my wishes will still be followed. But that’s not all this novel is about, its about dealing with the aftermath of life and fixing the broken pieces back together again. Reading about Lissa and Cormac as they swap roles and email back and forth with patient updates made me smile, but it was the doodles that did me in, they just made me catch the light and showed me a different side to the story one that made the sunshine come out. Even after a few false starts through the fair and a fancy bar I loved seeing where this story ended I enjoyed this so much.

  • jjob swap romance, just what the nurse ordered

    I really enjoyed the two previous books in this series so I jumped at the chance to request this ARC and Jenny Colgan did not disappoint. Lissa is a London nurse practitioner liaison (NPL). Cormac is an NPL in Kirrinfief, a small village in Scotland, he was in the Army and is finding life in his home village a little boring. When things get overwhelming at work Lissa's boss suggests she has a change of scenery and has a three month job swap with Cormac, he can get some big city work experience while she has a less stressful life. At first they are both fish out of water, struggling to cope with their clients and surroundings, but slowly they each come to appreciate things about their temporary situation. As they email back and forth about their clients Lissa and Cormac find themselves falling for each other, without having ever met! I loved this just as much as the other two books, a sweet romance leavened with some traumatic events, the novel is full of charming and memorable characters, we also see the main characters from the first two books. Absolutely perfect for anyone looking for a fish-out-of-water romantic comedy featuring a traumatised heroine and a gruff hero. Loved it and can't wait to read my way through Jenny Colgan's back catalogue. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

  • Very positive

    I’ve really enjoyed quite a few of Jenny Colgan’s previous books (although I could never get on with the Island series) and this is another cracker. This is a lovely cheerful tonic, I must admit I’m rather wistful for a Scottish highland escape right now however I did enjoy a few hours of feeling as though I was there!

    Thanks for your feedback!
