    An engrossing and well written story. I rooted for the well written cast of characters and liked the well crafted plot and the setting. I look forward to reading other books by this author. Recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Thoroughly Captivating

    Another wonderful read from Julie Houston which I didn't realise, prior to reading, included some of the characters from her previous novels - it's a winner! Clementine lives in a very unsavoury part of Leeds with her daughter, Allegra; she is aware it's not the best of addresses but she has her reasons for being there - apart from money being tight - and is working her socks off at her part-time job whilst completing her degree. Then along comes Peter who introduces both of them to a different, more affluent way of life and proposes marriage. Is it all too good to be true? With the author's trademark warmth and understanding, this is a beautifully created story which fits in with her recent books, although it is totally different. With plenty going on - a bit of a mystery, family dynamics and the fabulous fun which is injected into all Julie's novels, I was thoroughly captivated by this one. I can imagine that there was a fair bit of research into producing such accurate details (especially the food!) and I just loved everything about it. With plenty going on, ups and downs along with a few unexpected twists, this one ticked all my boxes and left me with a feeling of great satisfaction. Totally worth all five glowing stars and a hearty recommendation from me to read not only this one, but also the author's preceding novels.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Looking for Lucy

    I have thoroughly enjoyed Julie Houston’s books set in Midhope. Loved looking into the lives of her warm and real characters. More please.
