It feels like ages ago that I last finished a book. Work and life has been really busy the last few weeks and reading has sadly taken a bit of a back seat! Anyway, I’m finally back with another book review for you all!
My latest read is “On a Beautiful Day” by Lucy Diamond, and it is in fact Lucy Diamond’s latest book. Quite honestly, unfortunately I haven’t enjoyed the last few Lucy Diamond books compared to some of her early ones. I mean it was still a good read, but doesn’t live up to the standards of books like “Summer at Shell Cottage” or “The Beach Cafe”.
So in “On a Beautiful Day” we join a group of four friends after witnessing a road accident has a major impact on their lives. Laura is desperate for kids but is struggling to have them, and then her husband walks off. Jo is trying to start again with a new relationship but her new fella’s daughter isn’t making it easy. Eve is desperately hoping the lump in her breast will disappear, while India is closely drawn to one of the victims of the accident, but will she confide in her family?
I did quite enjoy “On a Beautiful Day”, there were some good storylines in there, but as with the last Lucy Diamond book “The House of New Beginnings” there were too many main characters for my liking. It was continually jumping around between the four ladies and I often found myself forgetting who was who and whose storyline was whose. It was a good story, just a bit confusing at times! The characters were all good and very relatable, but at the same time there were too many storylines going on for my liking.
Would I recommend this book? If you don’t mind reading about lots of characters and different stories in each chapter, then go for it! 🙂 If you struggle with multiple storylines I’d try a different book instead!
