When Jack Cartwright moves to the small town of Spring Lake he soon realises that there’s something a little different about the town. Children swim in raincoats, old ladies play guitar while getting drunk in caves (and, on the odd occasion, skinny dip) and the most beautiful woman he’s ever met pulls a shotgun on him at their first meeting.
Maggie Tanner, the woman behind the trigger, finds Jack to be infuriatingly arrogant and obnoxious.
So why can’t she stop thinking about him?
Jack on the other hand finds Maggie to be delightfully charming, if a touch stroppy. He sets about trying to charm her, with the help of her eccentric parents, Dot and Ray.
Will he succeed?
Will Maggie’s daughter Willow ever find out the truth about her father?
And will anyone ever lift the damn chair?
Filled to the brim with characters you can’t help but fall in love with, A Roast on Sunday is a story about the lengths families will go to in order to protect each other, and the healing power of love.
The good thing with books by Tammy Robinson is that I know I am going to be in for a good read.
A Roast on Sunday is no exception. Tammy does a great job of grabbing your attention in the very first chapter of this book and after that i was hooked.
This is a lovely gentle read which I really enjoyed. I really liked the storyline and can honestly say there wasn’t one character I didn’t like, even the farting policeman and thats saying something!
When Jack mistakenly rescues Willow, he takes her home and there meets Maggie, Willow’s mother. Jack soon becomes intrigued by Maggie and her some what eccentric family.
As with all of Tammy’s books, romance plays a big part of the story and seeing the relationship grow between Maggie and Jack is really lovely. Also the bond in Maggie’s family is so heart warming and makes you wish you could just jump into the book and be part of them.
I really can’t recommend this author’s books highly enough. Since reading Charlie and Pearl back in February I have been a big fan of Tammy’s books and all have been 5 stars reads. I can’t think of any better books to lose yourself into that leave you with that nice warm glow that only a heart warming story will do.
I have awarded this book 5/5 stars.
