HOW DO YOU FIND WHERE YOU’RE GOING, IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU’RE FROM . . .
Angie has always wanted to travel. But at twenty-seven, she has barely stepped outside the small mining town where she was born. Instead, she discovers the world through stories told to her by passing travellers, dreaming that one day she’ll see it all for herself.
When her grandmother passes away, leaving Angie with no remaining family, she is ready to start her own adventures. Then she finds a letter revealing the address of the father she never knew, and realises instantly where her journey must begin: Italy.
As Angie sets out to find the truth – about her family, her past and who she really is – will mysterious and reckless Italian Alessandro help guide the way?
I can never resist a book written by the wonderful Paige Toon. Her books are always so full of life and brilliant characters. Angie is the main character in this book, she doesn’t have any family left in the UK so decides to travel to Italy to see if she can connect with her father who she doesn’t know. It’s a lovely story, I felt as though I was learning about Italy too which seems a wonderful place where I would love to go. Add a little bit of romance, good food, good wine and family and it is the perfect mix for a brilliant story.

‘One day, maybe five years from now, you’ll look back and understand why this happened…’
I love reading a book by Paige Toon. There is nothing more than reading one of her books and imagining you are in the place her book is set in. A perfect way to escape and a lovely summer read. I have to confess I did cry a little nearer to the end, you will understand why once you get there, especially if like me it felt a bit close to home. One of my favourite reads of this year.
I received an ARC COPY of this book for an honest review.

When life feels like a puzzle, sometimes it’s the small pieces that make up the bigger picture… Join Bridget on a journey to put her world back together.
A successful travel journalist, Bridget has ambitions to turn her quirky relationship blog about the missing pieces of her heart into a book. But after a spate of rejections from publishers, she accepts an alternative proposition.
Nicole Dupré died leaving behind a bestselling novel and an incomplete sequel. Tasked with finishing the book, Bridget is thankful to have her foot in the publishing door, even if it means relocating to Cornwall for the summer and answering to Nicole’s grieving husband, Charlie…
I loved this book, anything that is written by Paige Toon is utterly moving and beautifully written. You know what you are going to get and you get it. I laughed, I cried and I was hooked from the first chapter. I loved little April, she is such a sweetheart with some of the things that she does. I really look forward to the next book.

A Dorset summer, a chance meeting, and Joe and Alice, both 18, fall into step as if they have known each other forever. But their idyll is shattered as quickly as it began. Joe leaves without warning; Alice heads off to Cambridge University and slowly picks up the pieces of her broken heart.
Years later, when she catches the attention of gorgeous, gifted, rich boy Lukas, Alice is carried along by his charm, swept up in his ambitious plans for a future together.
Until news of Joe reaches her once more, but he’s out of reach in a way that Alice could never have imagined. Life has moved on, the divide between them is now so great. Surely it is far too late to relive those perfect summer days of long ago?
Reading this reminded me of childhood where we use to go down to Dorset for our holidays. I like the fact that some of the places I grew up going to where in this book like Corfe Castle and the beaches. I was a bit too young to have a holiday romance but I remember having a crush on my neighbour’s son. It bought back some nice memories. Reading this book now I am actually in Dorset as I am having a mini break away and am staying with my mum and dad. Paige Toon is a brilliant author, she writes books that you can just pick up and put down, but then I never want to put down so I always read her books within a day.

Blinding sunshine… A bend in the road… What became of the little girl with the sun in her eyes?
Amber was three when a car crash stole her mother’s life. She doesn’t remember the accident, but a stranger at the scene has been unable to forget. Now, almost thirty years later, she’s trying to track Amber down.
Amber, meanwhile, is married to Ned and living on the other side of the world in London. When her father has a stroke, she flies straight home to Australia to be with him. Away from her husband, Amber finds comfort in her oldest friends, but her feelings for Ethan, the gorgeous, green-eyed man she once fell for, have never been platonic.
As Ethan and Amber grow closer, married life in London feels far away. Then Amber receives a letter that changes everything. ‘Before your mother died, she asked me to tell you something…’
I always seem to read Paige Toon’s books really fast, this one I read in a day and a half. They are the best kind of chick lit. The characters were realistic, the story has quite a few emotions going through it which I think people can relate to love, betrayal and loss. I enjoyed this book not as much as her others, there were some parts in the book I didn’t condone but it didn’t put me off reading about it. My favourite character was Doris, I think what she did was such a lovely thing to do. A perfect holiday read.

‘Don’t wait for the storm to pass; learn to dance in the rain…’ Laura has been married to the man of her dreams for seven months. But a week before the wedding, Matthew made a terrible mistake. Escaping the humiliation that is now her marriage, Laura is whisked off to Florida’s Key West by her best friend Marty.
A carefree holiday full of cocktails and fun, surrounded by gorgeous, tanned men, is exactly what the doctor ordered. Distraction comes in the form of sexy Cuban scuba diver Leo. Laura’s instant attraction to him knocks her flying, and she falls hard. As the end of the holiday approaches, Laura doesn’t want to go home. Is it time to face the music? Or is there more to Key West than a holiday romance?
I am always drawn to a Paige Toon book if I want pure chick lit or a nice easy read to take on holiday with me. I find you always get a feel for the characters and also the places they visit. I loved Laura, she was easy to warm to and just like your best friend, the storyline was so captivating that I hardly left this book alone.I love how Paige is so descriptive with her writing, it makes for a fantastic read, you know when you read one of her books your going to love it, I certainly did.
Settling down for a 24-hour flight to Australia, Lucy finds a text message on her phone – not from her boyfriend James, as she fondly hopes, but from a woman claiming to have slept with him four times in the past month. Trapped on the plane, she questions everything about her relationship with James. She finally calls him and he reassures her: it was only his mates playing a silly joke. James is a lawyer, persuasive and gorgeous and Lucy adores him.
So why, at the wedding in Sydney of her best friend Molly, does she have niggling doubts, and find herself attracted to Molly’s brother-in-law Nathan? The sooner she gets back to her regular life in London, the flat she shares with James, her job in PR, the better. Nathan is a happy-go-lucky surfer boy, with no prospects, no place to live, an almost-girlfriend in tow. And the other side of the world…Lucy – a girl caught between two distant continents – and two very different men…
This is pure chick lit at it’s best. This is a fast paced read but such an enjoyable one. Brilliantly written with a cracking storyline, it will make you cry and laugh all at the same time. Such a time waster of a book I just didn’t want to put it down. I loved the connection between Lucy and Nathan and I could see what James was really like early on. I really liked Lucy I thought she seemed down to earth and a tad like me in certain aspects. I loved reading all the jokes too, some of them were pretty funny. Would love to read more of Paige’s books soon.
