Summary:

When Noelle Cooke inherits a quaint English cottage and an art gallery from her famous Aunt Joy, she welcomes a departure from her San Diego routine. But the lure of the Cotswolds, combined with a locked cottage room and a revealing journal, entice her to stay and discover more, including a way to save the gallery from financial ruin. And that means remaining in England. When her childhood sweetheart, Adam Spencer, begins work on a restoration project in Noelle’s village, their friendship blossoms. But as her feelings for Adam deepen, she struggles with memories of what might have been and yearns for a future once thought lost. Faced with a life-altering revelation Aunt Joy took to her grave and a wrenching choice regarding the man she loves, Noelle could lose far more than her heart.

I am not even halfway through this book yet.  I tend to end up falling asleep due to working, life and being a mom.  I love the story so far.  Noelle’s adventure is pretty neat.   I also love the cover of this book because it just jumps out at you.  I am hoping to finish it maybe in a few days.

Reading update

My update….

Life has been a tad busy with the holidays….so I have not been able to update my blog. It’s a new year and new goals!  Hopefully I can tackle them all.  So onwards to the reading and books!

I have finished reading Finding the Rainbow by Traci Borum.

What is the book about:

Holly Newbury’s life is on hold in the cozy English village of Chilton Crosse. While her friends are marrying, having children, and embarking on successful careers, Holly is raising her three younger sisters and working part time at the village art gallery. Her life feels incomplete, but family is more important to her than anything. Then a film crew’s arrival galvanizes the community, and Holly becomes fast friends with Fletcher Hays, the movie’s love-shy American writer.

The production of an Emma film isn’t the only drama in town, though. Their father makes a choice that threatens everything she gave up her dreams for. Holly’s sisters endure growing pains. And Fletcher plans to return to America as soon as filming is over, ruining any chance of their relationship blossoming further. After years of sacrificing for others, Holly must find the courage to take a risk on a future she never dared to expect.

My Thoughts:

The cover caught my attention to be honest.  Who doesn’t love rainbows and a lovely countryside?   Then I read the summary of the book and decided to give it a go!

At first it was a little slow but then once I got past that bit, I wanted to know what was going to happen with Holly.  I loved being immersed in Holly’s world and to feel and see what she had to go through with her sisters, her dad, friends and meeting someone new: Fletcher.    The bits of drama here and there popping up was cool.   I really liked it.  It was a break from the usual stuff I read.  It felt cozy and uplighting in a way.   I kept rooting for Holly through everything she went through and thought she was a great character.  Fletcher was an interesting character: a guy from Texas who went to England for school and lived there for a while.  Oh and he plays the guitar..that is a sweet thing!  The book was all good.

Currently Reading:

I am going to try to finish up The Iron Wyrm.  And then perhaps start on Painting the Moon by Traci Borum (which is the first book in the series).  I am going to tackle my to read pile this year.  It is a goal!

More to come soon!
