Our thoughts…

Our Book of the Month for August 2021 came at just the right time – needing an escape from the real world and into someone else’s drama and happenings, this was the book for that! This book is the perfect blend of light, fluffy, heart-warming moments coupled with devestating ones that come out of nowhere. Jill knows just how to give a light touch of drama and intrigue to a book – as well as the funny, uplifting moments.

The settings explored in the book were also wonderful – alternating between Goosebrook, Puerto Pollensa and London. Jill wrote the locations well, transporting the reader to them each time the characters visited a new location. Oh and those characters… what a beautiful bunch of people! They jump out of the pages right into the real world because of Jill’s vivid descriptions and characterisation.

A brilliant book – one of Jill’s best! You don’t want to miss out on this one.

About the Book…

Jill’s heartwarming, romantic and funny new novel will delight her fans, as Mimi discovers that love doesn’t always wait till the timing is right …

Mimi isn’t looking for love when she spends a weekend in Goosebrook, the Cotswolds village her dad has moved to. And her first encounter with Cal, who lives there too, is nothing like a scene in a romantic movie – although she can’t help noticing how charismatic he is. But Cal’s in no position to be any more than a friend, and Mimi heads back to her busy London life.

When they meet again four years later, it’s still not to be. Cal is focusing on his family, and Mimi on her career. Then Cal dives into a potentially perfect new romance whilst Mimi’s busy fixing other people’s relationships.

It seems as if something, or someone else, always gets in their way. Will it ever be the right time for both of them?
