Welcome to the Real World

Relationship Stories

LoveReading View on Welcome to the Real World

Shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year Award 2007. This is ‘hiding your talent under a bush’ stuff, or being frightened to grab opportunities.  It’s set in the music world and is absolutely charming, a great read to curl up and lose yourself in.  Highly recommended.

Similar this month: Marian Keyes; Cathy Kelly.
Comparison: Catherine Alliott, Isla Dewar, Fiona Walker

It`s clear she`s got a lot to learn, but so has Evan – lessons that only Fern can teach him - and, together, maybe their dreams will come true…
