I am thrilled to be taking part in this blog tour today. Huge thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources and to the author for letting me be on the tour and sending me a copy of the book to review. My thoughts are below along with a confession, which I hope everyone will understand.
Blurb: Could one summer change your life?
When high-flying American lawyer Samantha Muir finds out she’s lost her partnership whilst on an assignment in London, she has a dramatic reaction.
Rather than returning home, she resigns, leaves her business suits behind and jumps on the first train to Cornwall at the encouragement of a friendly stranger.
The village of Little Penhaven, where Samantha eventually ends up, is a world away from her life in Knoxville, Tennessee – and local farmer Cadan Day is certainly a world away from any man she has met before. But could the Cornish village and Cadan play a part in Samantha’s summer of self-discovery?
My Review: So, as I said above I have a confession to make……….I haven’t finished reading the book………..there, I said it. It’s been a long and tiring few weeks with some less than ideal work news and a lot of general stress so my reading has hit a slight slump this past week. However, I have started this book and am loving it so far, it’s the perfect read for me to continue with this weekend (which, along with a snooze, is exactly what I have planned!). From what I’ve read so far I can admit I love the characters of both Sam and Cadan. Sam is fed up of being put upon and working hard for what appears to be very little recognition and I can completely empathise with that feeling. She acts on the spur of the moment and while, at the point I have reached, she doesn’t know where her new direction will take her it does appear to be doing her a lot of good to have a break from the life she had built for herself. The villagers of Little Penhaven have issues with Cadan, they believe his ex-wife’s version of past events and as such shun him at every opportunity but I have a feeling they are soon going to find out that what they have been told is not the whole truth.
Neither character knows where their life is heading at this point and both have a lot of decisions to make but it’s going to be fun reading further and finding out what happens next. So far this is the perfect read for an escape from reality where you can watch other people dealing with tricky decisions and see how they cope (or not) with them. This is an ideal book for a sunny day or even a rainy one when you want to curl up with a drink and a book and not move for a few hours. I’m fairly sure everyone reading this will have had at least one occasion in which they wanted to escape from their lives for a while so they can take stock and have a think about their future. While that is rarely possible, this book gives you the opportunity to do that through the characters instead, which is probably the best compromise option there is.
If you’re looking for a bit of escapism I would definitely suggest having a look at this book, it might be exactly what you need.
