Hi everyone 🙂
Hope you are all well and enjoyed my last review.
The book I have been reading recently is “Down on Daffodil Lane” by Rebecca Pugh.
This is the first book I have read by Rebecca and I really enjoyed it.
The story follows Maria Charm who’s recently divorced her cheating husband Mike. So when Maria takes a break to Daffodil Lane to find herself she never thought she would fall in love with the place so much, never mind get a job in Harriet’s Café and make some friends. Is this just what the Doctor ordered for Maria? and to put the cherry on top of the cake could a new romance be on the cards with the very handsome Brad? or is it all to good to be true.
I can not tell you how much I enjoyed reading this book.
It was full of romance, drama, friendship, humour in certain parts and overall such a warm hearted and lovely read.
Straight away I was drawn into the world of Maria and loved being a fly on the wall and seeing how Maria’s life developed.
Maria is the main character throughout the story and even though I didn’t really feel I had anything in common with her and relate to any of the things that she was going through, I still felt really sorry for her, but also saw her as a very strong person which I really liked about her.
There are a number of other wonderful characters throughout the story which play a big role in Maria’s life. Whether That be Harriet who runs the café that Maria works in, single mum and hairdresser Millie who you wish was your best friend or the very handsome and mysterious Brad.
It was just the story that caught my eye with this book but also the front cover. Can we all take a minute to admire how gorgeous it is and if the story doesn’t intrigue you to read this book I think the front cover definitely will.
I loved the whole concept of the story and how easy it was to follow and understand. Before I knew it I had finished the book and I did get quite sad about. I was instantly transfixed into the story from the very first page which doesn’t always happen with me when reading books and before I knew it I had finished the book which I did get quite sad about 😦
This moves me swiftly on to how brilliant I thought this book was written. It was very descriptive from the onset and throughout. I found it that descriptive I could really smell the smells, hear the sounds and I really thought I was in the story, which I love when reading.
So thank you Rebecca for transporting me to Daffodil Lane and writing such a wonderful book and introducing me to some brilliant and unforgettable characters.
On that note I hope you have enjoyed this review.
Until next time.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
