Thank you for stopping by! I’m thrilled to be one of the stops on the blog tour for Edie Browne’s Cottage by the Sea by Jane Linfoot and sharing my review today. With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite to join the tour and to the author and publisher for my copy via Netgalley. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
Those who don’t jump will never fly…
Hurtling through the sky was supposed to be Edie
Browne’s flight of independence. But when she falls head over champagne bucket
while celebrating her successful landing, her life is changed in an
But starting over has its benefits, and as Edie relearns the basics under the watchful eye of her Aunty Josie and an entire Cornish village of new friends and neighbours, she finds love and joy she never could have imagined in the unlikeliest of places…
Come home to St Aidan and Periwinkle Cottage for a romance full of love, laughter and friends for life!
I have to admit I’m a big fan of Jane Linfoot, her books have a very special charm that I just love! Let’s just say I wasn’t disappointed at all when I picked up this book it is another great example of Jane Linfoot’s wonderful writing. Edie Browne’s Cottage by the Sea has so much warmth and love that I was pretty much smiling the whole way through.
In a way I guess I was expecting something completely different when I first picked up this book so the fact that I was surprised was such a lovely feeling. Edie is a character who I just couldn’t help but root for and I was willing her along the entire way through. Her strength, determination and personality made for such an engaging character. In fact I loved getting to know all the fun, lively and quirky characters especially as we see certain ones grow in confidence and find themselves taking on new challenges. Jane Linfoot wrote this book in such a wonderful way I was made to feel as if I experienced everything with them. Edie is a character that got under my skin along with the adorable Cam!
There is a thread of romance running throughout but it wasn’t the main aspect of the story. It was just a lovely addition to an already inspiring story about life, love and friendships. Showing both the highs and lows, let’s just say I was taken on quite a journey with Edie and her friends. There are both emotional and heartwarming moments but all with an uplifting and positive edge. What can I say Edie Browne’s Cottage by the Sea is a very special book that charmed me completely with every page I turned!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jane Linfoot is a best selling author, who lives in a muddy cottage, up a steep hill in Derbyshire, with her family, their pets, and an astonishing number of spiders. Although she loves seeing cow noses over the garden wall, she’s happy she can walk to a supermarket.
Jane grew up in North Yorkshire where she spent a lot of her childhood avoiding horizontal gales blowing off the sea, and wrote her first book by accident, while working as an architect, and renovating country houses. While she loves to write feelgood books that let readers escape, she’s always surprised to hear her stories make people laugh, admits to (occasionally) crying as she writes, and credits her characters for creating their own story lines.
Jane’s garden would be less brambly if she wasn’t on Facebook and Twitter so often. On days when she wants to be really scared, she rides a tandem.
Her latest books include a series of stand alone novels, based around a seaside wedding shop in Cornwall. Cupcakes and Confetti – The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea, Sequins and Snowflakes – Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop, and Bunting and Bouquets – Summer at the Little Wedding Shop, and most recently, The Little Cornish Kitchen. These are all published by Harper Impulse, an imprint of Harper Collins.
