Can your final fling become your Happy Ever After?

When Jo Coulson finds herself single again in her late thirties, she finally resigns her membership to Last of the Hopeless Romantics, fully intending to tackle midlife and motherhood alone. First, she plans one legendary last fling…

In walks Harry Inchbold, and the connection is electric. Passionate, unpredictable and messily divorced, Harry is the perfect antidote to cosy coupledom. Known as The Sinner, drama follows him around with a clapper board.

Harry’s favourite holiday hideaway in the wilds of South Shropshire puts the mud and fun into the perfect dirty weekend. But at the cottage Harry reveals a very different side, melting Jo’s resolve. What better combination to face an uncertain future than two cynics who have learned from their mistakes?Together they make a pact; ‘same time next year’; they can promise no more than that.

Through life’s most stressful decade, Harry and Jo return to the Shropshire hills for one weekend each year to rediscover passion and make peace. As career, family and home crises all threaten to bring them unstuck, the cottage is their glue. Here, different rules apply: the day to day world is not allowed to intrude.With Harry and Jo, however, it’s only a matter of time before rules get broken. As real life gets increasingly complicated, can they keep renewing their promise?

My Thoughts:

I received this book for an honest review. I really enjoy Fiona’s books they always leave me feeling comforted. The two main characters in this story are Harry and Jo and it is about what happens to a relationship over time and how it changes. It may be a predictable ending but I enjoyed going on Jo and Harry’s journey nether the less. A nice easy read that you will not want to put down.

The Woman who Fell in Love for a week By Fiona Walker

The Woman who Fell in Love for a week By Fiona Walker

This title will be released on June 4, 2015.

Dive into a summer of surprises . . .

Jenny loves to house-sit: looking after a stranger’s perfect home and pretending to be someone else – just for a bit. Her latest booking is a beautiful rambling country house owned by the glamorous Lewis family. Freed of teaching duties for the summer, Jenny plans to do nothing more challenging than walk the family’s badly behaved dog and laze by the pool.

Her idyll is disrupted by skeletons in the Lewis closet. Stumbling across hidden messages and passionate secrets, Jenny finds herself exposing far more than just home truths. She uncovers a seductive second chance: to open herself up to love again and to finally live life on her own terms.

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of this book and it definitely is another brilliantly written story by Fiona, it is so much more than your usual chick lit. I found the plot very entertaining and liked that there were twists and turns in the story. I liked Jenny and could see myself in her sometimes, I loved her job looking after peoples homes but I don’t think I could do it, it did seem quite stressful at many times. I think the star of the show was Gunther the dog, yes I know he was quite naughty but he seemed very loveable. I found the story light hearted but it also very thought provoking. I think is shows how heartbreak can influence our lives After reading a few of Fiona’s books I think this is my favourite so far. It was a funny and touching book and I look forward to the next book.
