So, there were a few things wrong with this picture, one is what child of 8-14 should be reading Mills & Boon novels for one! Secondly, these were the Mills & Boon novels of the 70’s-80’s and they were for the most part pretty awful, from the covers to the writing. Add in the fact I was a through and through tomboy with depression and severe emotional issues plus my earlier point about my age, no wonder I was scarred!
So, after this explanation it wouldn’t surprise you to know that I came onto this tour at the last minute after another host was taken ill. I haven’t read any other books in this series, nor anything Rachel Brimble has written before.
This book was beautiful, it really was, it was simple, yet complicated. An easy read, yet so emotional. There were such difficult and harrowing topics discussed but with compassion and Rachel Brimble didn’t go into such a depth that they got uncomfortable and the point of the book, romance, was overshadowed.
In all honesty this was nothing like I remembered the Mills & Book brand (and hallelujah to that), Tanya was a strong woman who after a rough break needs time and compassion to deal with her own emotions, to learn to like and love herself again. There are plenty of strong women who know how that feels. She’s realised that to be strong doesn’t necessarily translate into being mean and that money and status do not translate into happiness.
I found how vulnerable Liam is wonderful, how refreshing to get a lead male character who is vulnerable, afraid of his own feelings. He had so many of the characteristics usually reserved for female romance characters, yet they suited him and his situation so well, and we all know that at the heart men are softies too!
I’m so pleased I had the opportunity to read this book and take part in this blog tour. If you’re like me and have reservations about Mills & Boon, put them aside and give this book a go
Thank you to Brook Cottage Books for inviting me onto this blog tour and for the ARC for my review.
First, she wants to find the man who abused her sister and bring him to justice, and second, she wants to make up for the w she treated years earlier when she was blinded by ambition, arrogance, and her mother. She'd especially like to earn the forgiveness of Liam Browne. They were engaged seven years ago, and she left him without a word, only a note stuck under his door.
Liam doesn't trust her, but will that change as Tanya makes her home in Templeton Cove?
This was a nice romance. I liked both of the main characters, especially the heroine who had so many regrets to overcome. Both the hero and heroine were likable and I wanted things to turn out well for them.
The author painted a beautiful picture of life in a seaside resort town in England. I wouldn't mind visiting a place like that myself, but I don't want to run into some of the things that happened in the story.
It's a nice read with an ending that I liked. I can recommend it to you without reservation.
I honestly don’t know where to start with the review. I loved the book and there were bits that I didn’t love. I know, that’s so weird for me in reading Ms. Brimble. While I loved Liam and Tanya, I felt like parts of the book were left sorta hanging in the wind. I would have liked more involvement from John (who inherited Funland) and his perspective about trying to finally find who hurt Sasha after all those years ago. Yes, it’s explained in their book but I would have liked more supportive from him in this one. I would suggest that you read What Belongs to Her featuring Sasha and John before reading this one. You might get a better understanding of where Tanya and Liam are coming from in this book.
Don’t get me wrong. Ms. Brimble explains, effortlessly, the back story of Sasha’s story and ultimately Tanya’s story here but you would remiss to not read it. It’s an awesome book and shows how true love can change a person…for the good. Plus, come on…its my English Rose. Plus, we get Jay and Cat in that book, too. Which leads me to Jay and Cat. They set the series in the first book and show up again in this one. Cat is such a badass and Jay is a great sounding board for Liam. He sees right through Liam and takes him task.
Tanya is such a well-rounded heroine. She has problems that are NOT skirted over. Ms. Brimble does a great job in dealing with her anxiety issues and how she copes with them, or maybe doesn’t cope. Having Lucy around as her assistant is brilliant. Hopefully, Lucy will get a story in the near future. I truly liked her and felt like she had more to say. I will have to say that I didn’t like Marion in this one. Every town needs a busybody and matchmaker but in this one, she just kinda grated on my nerves. She needed to butt out and leave Liam and Tanya alone to figure it out all by themselves (which eventually she did).
Liam was a great hero for Tanya. He called her out when needed and loved her when she needed or at times, didn’t feel like she deserved it. I particularly liked how he dealt with Abe at the fair. I couldn’t decide whether to giggle or applaud. Plus, he can take me on a desk anytime. 😉 Well thought out character and I completely understood why he was helping Tanya. In the beginning it was for Sasha, his friend but in the end it was for Sasah and her closure so they could be together without distractions.
Overall, Ms. Brimble did an excellent job of tying up Sasha and again, ultimately Tanya’s story in the end. I just wish some things were better fleshed out. I realize that I’m picking about John but I would like to hear his side in the book. I missed him.
Overall, buy this book. Read it, savor it and then go back and read every other book in the series. Ms. Brimble knows her craft. She pulls you and doesn’t let go until well after you finished. I’m still thinking about Cat, Jay, John, Sasha, Tanya and Liam. In fact, I might go back and re-read the whole series. Yes, its that awesome. Its on my keeper shelf and will never leave.
