Lovereading view...

Christina Jones back with another of her quirky, lively feel-good tales. There are always plenty of characters to keep the action going in her novels and of course there is plenty of comedy and romance. Phoebe Bowler has just been jilted at the altar and turns to her dishy neighbour, Rocky Lancaster, for some sympathy but he has problems of his own and wants to be left alone. Cue Essie Rivers who loves astrology and all other kinds of ologies and thinks that ‘Birthday-ology’ is going to work for Phoebe to turn her life around. A warm, witty, heartfelt read.

If you like Christina Jones you might also like to read books by Carole Matthews, Lucy Diamond and Jenny Colgan.

Synopsis

Happy Birthday by Christina Jones

On midsummer’s day, Phoebe Bowler – star-sign demon – should have returned home an ecstatically happy new bride. Instead, she’s been jilted at the altar. In need of sympathy, perhaps she could turn to her neighbour, the dishy Rocky Lancaster? But with problems of his own he’s turned into Mr Grumpy and wants to be left alone.

That is until Essie Rivers arrives on the scene, and then Phoebe and Rocky’s paths seem destined to collide with a very big bump. Essie knows far more about astrology, personolgy, numerology – any ‘ology’ you care to mention – than Phoebe has ever heard of. But it is the secret magic of ‘birthday-ology’ that catches Phoebe’s eye. Can she really use a birthday to find a perfect match or to set her and Rocky back on the path to happiness? Phoebe thinks so, but that’s when things start to go really wrong…

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

Lovereading is an amazing place to be, the website is wonderful and to me if I'm sad I'll go here and it cheers me up!

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
