This is the 5th audiobook by Victoria I have listened too. I love Jam Cramer’s narrative, her tone of voice is very calming and she draws you into the story. However, when the storyline took an intense, dramatic turn I felt the change of direction in Jan’s voice and could feel the tension within the characters.
I haven’t read the first book in the Book Lovers series, although I do have it patiently waiting on my tbr list. This book can be easily read as a standalone but to fully enjoy and appreciate the full characters I would encourage you to read The Book Lovers.
This story focuses around Polly Nightingale, who is still heart broken following the sudden disappearance of her husband Sean 3 years ago. However, after Jago Solomon starts helping her son with music lessons a friendship between Polly and Jago soon starts blossoming. However, Jago has more than platonic feelings for Polly and doesn’t see the 13 year age gap as a problem although Polly does and she has other intentions for Jago’s heart.
I love how the story is also focused around the new book club which has been set up in the local secondhand bookshop owned by Polly’s brother Sam. On the opening night of the bookclub we are introduced to some wonderful, quirky characters all of them loving a variety of different book genres. I can imagine some fun and interesting nights to be had with the bookclub.
The story continues on Polly’s journey coping with her growing feelings for Jago. When the grosts from Polly’s past threaten her new life can she forgive and forget the hurt she has been feeling or will she find the strength to admit what she really wants and stop being manipulated?
I loved Jago’s character, for someone so relatively young he was level headed and kind and knew just what he wanted in life to make him happy. I also loved the name of Polly’s dog, Dickens, such an apt name for a family of book lovers.
This was a lovely story of friendships, new beginnings, new loves and lots of mutual appreciation for reading. 5/5*
