Lovely characters, very good one liners and a clever plot (no spoilers but we are pretty sure you won’t get the twist) make this highly enjoyable top notch chick lit a perfect holiday read.

Synopsis

It Happened One Summer by Polly Williams

After years of romantic drought, Nell is enjoying a thrilling fling with a sexy new man and loving London life, somehow managing to juggle single motherhood with a busy career. Plus, in the city it's easy to avoid her sister who is about to marry Nell's ex. (Yes, messy.) Then she gets the news. Please could she return to Tredower, the crumbling old family home in Cornwall for the summer? Disaster. Tredower has no wifi, harbours her big dysfunctional family, and, far worse, memories of her passionate love affair with the man who is about to become her brother-in-law. The past is another county. Can she go there? Another woman is making her way west too, carrying an explosive secret. Love will be lost, broken, and found, lives changed forever...

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.
