I’ve finally finished another book! 😀 I don’t feel like my reading is going very well so far this year, I think now having my job means I have less time for reading 😦
Anyway, after finishing Paper Hearts and Summer Kisses I was having a bit of a Carole Matthews hangover and wanted to read another of her books. Plus I hadn’t really treated myself to anything for a while so I decided to buy a few new books on Amazon. I bought “A Million Love Songs”, “Stately Pursuits” and “The Summer Seaside Kitchen”.
A Million Love Songs is Carole Matthew’s latest book and it really did not disappoint. It was exactly what I wanted to read and I read my way through it pretty quickly 🙂
Ruby has recently divorced from her husband and is looking for a new perspective on single life. She is fully ready to embrace single life and doesn’t want a new relationship. She decides to pick up a new hobby to fill her time with, scuba diving. Then she meets Joe.
Joe is recently split up from his cheating with and single handedly looks after 2 teenage kids. Ruby and Joe get on incredibly well but Joe has a constant juggling act meaning he can’t give Ruby what he wants. Then comes along Mason, Ruby’s attentive boss. He can give her everything she wants… except a settle down type relationship.
I absolutely loved this book. It was very forward and backward between Joe and Mason though with Ruby seeming a bit easy to take advantage of, but that said it was an enjoyable read and I totally understand Ruby’s reasoning for going forward and backward as much as she did.
It wasn’t an overly predictable read though like some chick lit books can be and I really enjoyed it. I loved the characters, especially Joe and it was quite a relatable book.
All in all I loved this book and would really recommend it to anyone looking for a light summer read 🙂
