This is a great read. I'm a city girl, so sometimes when I'm wedged under an armpit in the tube, the idea of packing up and moving to the country is terribly appealing. Christina Jones' fantastic book is just what I need in those situations; a little slice of rural England that I can carry around in my bag. Set in the village of Bagley, where everyone's business is common knowledge, Sukie Ambrose decides to use essential oils from the plants in her garden for her Aromatherapy business. She is surprised to discover that her potions help with a little more than her clients' aches and pains and soon the whole village seems to be under her spell. Plenty of humour, romance and a little touch of magic.

If you like Christina Jones you might also like to read books by Milly Johnson, Katie Fforde and Carole Matthews.

Synopsis

Love Potions by Christina Jones

When aromatherapist Sukie Ambrose starts using her cottage garden as inspiration – and raw ingredients – for her products, she thinks she’s just hit on a good way of saving money while offering her clients a way of de-stressing and relaxation. However, Sukie lives in a village where strange things have been known to happen…She discovers that her new improved lotions and potions are making her massages distinctly magical – and producing more star-crossed lovers than Shakespeare could ever dream of…

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
