You: kind, piano-playing sex god
Me: hopelessly romantic charity shop manager
Honeysuckle Jones has a problem, and her best friends Nell and Tash are on a mission to help her solve it. She needs a man – a caring, intelligent, funny man. But most importantly, a man who’s good with his hands…
Luckily Honey’s new neighbour – moody, antisocial ex-chef Hal – fails on almost every count. Even though the chemistry between them is electric, he’s obviously wrong for her in every way.
But when Honey discovers the devastating reason for his moods she decides to give him another chance. And discovers that the best songs aren’t always in tune…
I fell in love with Kat French last year, and since this was actually her debut novel i knew i had to read it. I went into this book no knowing anything but the blurb and i am very glad about that but i am going to have to talk about some of the things i am glad i didn't know so that i can explain Hal's character a little bit.
I knew this book was going to be good, considering the first line that reads .... "'Don't you think there's something sad about buying yourself a new vibrator for Valentines day?' Honey picked up a lurid pink model and eyed it with distaste.
i have no idea why i love that line but it is one that i remember, it is memorable. When we first meet Hal he is not the kind of character you expect he is a moody, alcohol dependant, sad man who is fast becoming a recluse but not of his own accord. Hal used to be a world renowned chef with his own restaurant and it is sad to see where he ends up.
The characters in this story are remarkably written they seem like real people, and you just want to go to this little village and spend time with them all. Honey grows so much over the course of this book and she does it in a spectacular way.
This is a feel good romance book perfect to read on a cold rainy winters day, because it put a huge smile on my face, i loved every minute of reading this book and Kat French has become an auto buy author for me because of her writing and her characters in such a few pages she creates a world and a story that will resonate with many, many readers.
Until Next Time
