After the Rain By Lucy Dillon

After the Rain By Lucy Dillon


First, the clouds…
Tara Hunter is a therapist on a mission to restore Longhampton’s community spirit after catastrophic flooding. But with her boyfriend AWOL, her family fragmented, and only a cat for company, Tara’s own life is crumbling.

Then the storm…
On top of everything, Tara’s father – last seen as he walked out on her when she was ten years old – is suddenly back, with a surprising offer that could change everything.

And after the rain…
Dr David Dalloway is Longhampton Wellness Centre’s new star counsellor. He’s charming, caring and has a knack for reading people’s minds – which is the last thing Tara needs right now. Will having David and her dad around make for a bigger storm on the horizon? Or is this Tara’s chance for a fresh start?

My Thoughts:

This was a nice easy read when you need a break from reading thrillers, the story was ok, it is set in Longhampton where they have been hit by a terrible flood, therapist Tara has to come in and help the villagers restore some calm into their lives, Tara’s life is not perfect either so she has to try and balance the two together. And when her long lost father decides to make an appearance at the completely wrong time could anything be any worse for Tara. I thought it was a ok read, a little slow in parts, I was hoping that it would get going a little more but I felt it a little samey to other books I have read.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
