Jess and her ten-year-old son William set off to spend the summer at Château de Roussignol, deep in the rich, sunlit hills of the Dordogne. There, Jess’s ex-boyfriend and William’s father, Adam, runs a beautiful hotel in a restored castle.
Jess is bowled over by what Adam has accomplished, but she’s in France for a much more urgent reason: to make Adam connect with his own son. Jess can’t allow Adam to let their son down because she is tormented by a secret of her own, one that nobody – especially William – must discover.
By turns life-affirming, heart-wrenching and joyful, You Me Everything is a novel about one woman’s fierce determination to grab hold of the family she has and never let go, and a romantic story as heady as a crisp Sancerre on a summer day.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
This is going to be a big Summer hit. It has everything you could want to make it perfect, great characters, a bit of a tear jerker and the beautiful descriptive writing so much so you can feel the warmth of the French sun on your back. It is such a special book and I think I will cherish it forever. I think what I learnt from it is that we will definitely go to the ends of earth to help the ones we love. I read it in a few days and now I want to read it again.

I was lucky enough to get a signed copy of this book by Anouska Knight. I will certainly be keeping my eye out in the future for books by her as this one was so powerful, I was hooked. This is a story about a family, an unfortunate accident which has devastating consequences happen and you see how all the family learn to cope and live with it and themselves. The characters were very well drawn and believable, I just got so sucked into their world that I did not want to stop reading. Superbly written by a very lovely author.

You save me and I’ll save you.
Victoria Noble has pulled the plug on romance. As director of the number one social networking site, EweSpeak, and single mother to four-year-old Seth, she wrestles with the work-life balance. Enter Chris Frampton, Hollywood action hero and Victoria’s first love. His return from LA has sparked a powder keg of media attention, and with secrets threatening to fuel the fire, he’s desperate to escape. But finding a way forward is never simple. Although his connection with Victoria has lasted the test of time, has he been adrift too long to know how to move on? with the risk of them breaking, will either follow their heart?
This book is all about relationships, love and families. It digs deep into the minds and hearts of all the characters in this book. The sub-plots that are brilliantly woven into this story are brilliantly written and I found them very moving. The idea of EweSpeak and the Bleats had me in stitches, what a fantastic idea. Very interesting story one i would definitely recommend.
