Conditional Love by Cathy Bramley


Book Description:

What surprises might life have in store for you?

A takeaway, TV and tea with two sugars is about as exciting as it gets for thirty-something Sophie Stone. Sophie’s life is safe and predictable, which is just the way she likes it, thank you very much.

But when a mysterious benefactor leaves her an inheritance, Sophie has to accept that change is afoot. There is one big catch: in order to inherit, Sophie must agree to meet the father she has never seen.

Saying ‘yes’ means the chance to build her own dream home, but she’ll also have to face the past and hear some uncomfortable truths…

With interference from an evil boss, warring parents, an unreliable boyfriend and an architect who puts his foot in it every time he opens his mouth, will Sophie be able to build a future on her own terms – and maybe even find love along the way?

A totally charming, modern love story for fans of Katie Fforde, Carole Matthews and Trisha Ashley.

Praise for Cathy Bramley:
‘Delightfully warm and with plenty of twists and turns’ Trisha Ashley
‘A witty, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy . . . I highly recommend it!’ Miranda Dickinson

My Thoughts:

Conditional Love if the first book I have read by this author and it certainly won’t be the last.

Sophie’s life doesn’t really seem to be going anywhere, she’s sharing a flat with two sisters, she’s got a job, but not in the career she was hoping for and her boyfriend is a bit of a waste of space. Things start to change though when she is unexpectedly left a house and some money by an estranged aunt.

Being a lover of Grand Designs and many other housing programmes, I really enjoyed reading of the little bungalow that was in need of some love and imagination. Through Sophie and Nick I could really see the potential behind the house and was dying for it all to be completed.

Sophie and Nick have a very complicated relationship. It is obvious they both fancy the pants off each other but due to Nick’s no dating clients policy, their relationship looks set to be nothing other than a working one.

You would think being left a house and money would be a blessing but it does seem to bring a lot of other problems out of the woodwork for Sophie and you can’t help but feel empathy for her.

Conditional Love is a lovely light hearted read which does touch on some tough topics. Really enjoyed reading it and can’t wait to read more of her books.

Many thanks to the author for a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review.

I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.

Conditional Love is available to purchase from Amazon.
