Even when you think you’ve lost everything, hope and romance can be just around the corner . . .
It takes time to build your life. To get into a long-term (OK, a bit boring) relationship. To find a job (you don’t completely hate). Lottie might not be thrilled with the life she’s put together, but it’s the one she’s got.
So when in the course of one terrible evening, it all comes crashing down around her, Lottie has a choice: give herself over to grief at being broke, single and completely lacking in prospects.
Or, brick by brick, build herself a new life. And this time, with a little help from friends, a crumbling cottage in Devon and a handsome stranger, maybe she can make it the one she always wanted.
An irresistibly funny read about never giving up, whatever the world throws at you. Perfect for fans of Jenny Colgan, Jane Costello and Christie Barlow.
Lottie finds herself in the unfortunate position of having to start over again. The thought of literally having nothing would no doubt beat most people down but luckily for Lottie an ideal opportunity to do up a cottage in exchange for staying there rent free, at least resolves some of her problems in the short term.
The cottage in its idyllic country setting swept me away. Yes it maybe in dire need of a good clean and updating but I could easily see the potential and found myself falling a little bit more in love with it the more that Lottie does. Of course the fact that the next door neighbour is a bit of a hunk was even more of a bonus!
You really feel for Lottie and all that she has gone and is going through. It’s far from doom and gloom though and there are plenty of laughs in store.
The Summer of Second Chances is an uplifting and captivating read that sent my heart a flutter. I loved the chemistry between Lottie and Bryn and at times it certainly gets you a bit hot under the collar! I think it will be hard for anyone who reads this book not to develop a little bit of a crush when it comes to Bryn. A gorgeously fun read that will brighten up your day!
