James loves working for Mark and his fame as an astrologist is slowly starting to rise. Mark has a lot of plans and he's giving James a more important role in the company, so it looks like he's going to have a promising future. Unfortunately he doesn't really enjoy a certain aspect of his job which spoils everything for him. The reason for that is Phillipa, the new business manager, whose unwanted advances are making him cringe. James doesn't know how to handle the situation and he's afraid of her. He's insecure about Mark's motives and he doesn't like it that Katherine still prefers Mark's readings. He's such a happy father and he loves Katherine dearly, but he doesn't know how to make things better for her.
Mark feels alone and wants to make some changes in his life. He needs Katherine's help, but she isn't supposed to tell James. This makes the situation quite difficult for her, but it's also giving her purpose. She's trying to find a new publisher and she's also helping Mark to reach his goals. Slowly they're both starting to feel better, but it isn't an easy journey and they're also bringing the old scandal back to life again. Is that a wise thing to do?
It was a joy to read about the main characters of Under The Stars again. They all have a special place in my heart. I really enjoyed Quintessentially Yours and couldn't put it away. I read this book in one sitting as it is so good that I wanted to keep reading and I didn't want the story to end at all. After just a short period of happiness the situation changes and Mark, James and Katherine need to find their balance again. There's quite a journey ahead of them and I loved reading about it. Katherine is coping so well, but she doesn't seem to notice. She's quite a perfectionist and when she can't keep things under control she wants the stars to rescue her, she's wonderful and this often put a smile on my face. James is a sweetheart, he wants to do everything right and forgets himself in the process. And Mark does something hilarious which is really stupid, it's out of character and it made me laugh so hard.
Linn B. Halton is such a great writer. Reading her books makes me just as happy as visiting friends. I keep having the feeling that I really know the characters and it feels like they're actual people instead of fictional. I enjoyed reading the astrological advice and actually wanted to subscribe to the website straight away. Both Mark and James have their own style of writing their readings and that's important to Katherine. I liked that some of them can actually be found in the book. Linn B. Halton shows her readers what's so different about them, so the story comes to life even more. The cover of the book is beautiful and the same goes for the title, which is such an excellent and fitting choice. I highly recommend Quintessentially Yours and the same goes for any other book by this author.
Catching up with Katherine and James was like meeting up with old friends again after a long break, their lives had changed quite dramatically (as it always does when a baby comes along) and I was keen to see how they would cope with the changes. Their story was retold beautifully in the first few pages so I was easily able to slip back into their world.
Linn captured the mood of the first few months of parenthood perfectly. Those days of joy blended with utter exhaustion and confusion were described with such honesty, for me it really brought the characters emotions to life. Seeing as it hasn’t been long since I had our little one I found myself nodding along at some of the day-to-day struggles that Katherine was coping (or not coping) with. I really felt for her and could sense how overwhelmed she was, there were many times that I just wanted to reach into the book and give her a hug.
No.4 (the cat) was a favourite of mine from the first book so I was pleased to see him making his second appearance. He even managed to save the day on one occasion, what a hero!
There was a very interesting side to the storyline which involved book publishing, this was something I particularly enjoyed as, being a book blogger, I usually only see the finished (or nearly finished) product. I felt like I was being given a behind the scenes peek at everything that comes first.
As with other books from this author there were a couple of moments that gave me goosebumps, I love the way Linn manages to weave spiritual elements into her storylines.
This was a touching read, one that really struck a chord within me – a great sequel!
Katherine's romantic bubble has burst in all aspects of her life and she is understandably shell shocked. James finds this needy Katherine, something of a challenge, although he shows his true worth by plugging all the holes in their daily life; whilst helping Katherine rediscover her sense of self-worth. James has his own demons to conquer as he adjusts to life as a new father.
Again the support characters are interesting and provide important insight into the story of our star-crossed couple. Mark's life also loses its status quo and Katherine manages to forget her own worries, to provide him with the support he so obviously needs.
There are unexpected twists and a charming mix of humour and poignancy. Although a sequel to 'Under the Stars', this story is complete. An enjoyable read, even if you haven't discovered the delights of 'Under the Stars' yet.
'Quintessentially Yours', is a tale of everyday life and people with just enough added sparkle to make it the perfect read to escape your own life for a little while.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
