Thanks for stopping by! I’m delighted to be sharing my review for The Gentleman of Holly Street as part of the blog tour today. With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite to join the tour and to the author for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
Will this Christmas…
Change their lives again?
When self-made gentleman Freddie Walton rescued penniless Philomena Nichols at Christmas eight years ago, he never imagined that he would build his empire with her. Yet whilst they have created a life together as friends, Freddie can’t let their special connection become more than that. Not when his dangerous past continues to haunt him… But what happens when Freddie’s feelings for Philomena also refuse to stay hidden?
The Gentleman of Holly Street was a sweet, sizzling chemistry filled story. There was also a wonderful heartwarming feel throughout. Especially as I got to know Freddie and Mena. Seeing the pair of them dance around each other and stumble over their feelings for each other. Let’s just say I was rooting for them right from the very beginning.
I loved the setting of Christmas it brought an extra warmth to the story. Especially with how much good Mena and Freddie were achieving in helping those in need. The slow burn romance was just the icing on the cake for me.
The Gentleman of Holly Street had both sizzling and gentle moments along with a sweet romance at its heart. Then add in a touch of intrigue and danger and I became fully invested in the story!
Lotte James trained as an actor and theatre director, but spent most of her life working day jobs crunching numbers whilst dreaming up stories of love and adventure. She’s thrilled to finally be writing those stories, and when she’s not scribbling on tiny pieces of paper, she can usually be found wandering the countryside for inspiration, or nestling with coffee and a book.
