Sometimes you’ve got to run away to find yourself…
Twenty-four-year-old Lucy needs a fresh start. Forever single and frustrated with her studies she gives up everything to run a little library in the leafy village of Tilley Moreton.
Lucy loves reading almost as much as she loves fixing other people’s problems, so starting a book club seems like the perfect opportunity to do both. As she meets her new members, it’s clear she’s going to have her work cut out for her. Handsome but silent Callum is the biggest puzzle of them all…
But Lucy’s meddling begins to cause more problems than it solves, and no one is more surprised than Lucy when Callum steps in to help. Could there be more to him than people think?
As Callum and Lucy start working together to fix the broken hearts of the library’s most loyal customers, the first sparks of romance begin to fly.
Can they right all the trouble Lucy has created, and might there be a chance for a happy ending of their own?
Such a Wonderful, Warm Read!
As a mad bookworm, I love a novel about a book club and this is one of loveliest ones I’ve come across. Such well-rounded and realistic characters, all with their own difficult life situations to cope with .. and they are all safe in the hands of Emma Davies.
Having given up her studies to run a small local library, Lucy sets up a book club which turns out to give it’s members what amounts to their social life. Callum spends his days in the library to escape from his unambitious family; Hattie enjoys the adult company whilst her young daughter attends school; Stanley, recently widowed, likes to sit and read quietly and Lia? Well, as carer for her mother suffering from dementia it is her once a week respite. Each of them have their own reasons for seeking out the company of others, and the book club saves their sanity on a weekly basis.
This is such a wonderful read. With plenty happening to the characters – all believable and nobody perfect – all the small details add up to one bumper read. I’m not going to give anything away, but there are enough ups and downs to keep the reader glued and turning the pages at a decent speed. I loved all of it, every single tale and have no hesitation in recommending to lovers of a well-written rom-com. I have enjoyed every novel this author has written, but I think she has excelled herself with Lucy’s Book Club for the Lost and Found.
My thanks to Bookouture for allowing me to access an arc via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
