For fans of Trisha Ashley and Tilly Tennant, this is a perfect and much-needed slice of summer escapism.
Sparks and tempers fly when Ben comes to stay in Daisy’s holiday cottage
Daisy likes routine. She goes to work, makes dinner for her son, then loses herself for an hour or two in her sewing. She’s not looking for change, until Ben crashes – literally – into her life.
Ben is training for a triathlon, working himself to the limit in an attempt to forget a recent trauma. Daisy wants to help, but even as they draw closer with every week that passes, he pushes her away whenever things threaten to get serious.
Can Ben open himself up to love again? And with Daisy’s life in the Yorkshire Dales and Ben’s in New York, can they have a future together even if he does?
A Lovely Summer Romance!
What a super summer read!
Daisy lives in the Yorkshire Dales and is content; with work, friends, hobbies and village life she is kept busy. Then Ben crashes into her life, and turns her life upside down. Living in New York, he is in the Dales training for a local triathlon and taking it all very seriously. Daisy wants to help but while there is definitely a spark of attraction, they never seem to be on the same page at the same time. And with the distance between their lives, will they ever get together?
I suspect the author lives in a small community similar to Thorndale as she has village living down to a ‘T’. Although I’m joining this series with the third book, this is a complete and well-crafted story and I can easily go back and catch up with the first two without any spoilers. With wonderful characters and an enjoyable storyline, this all adds up to a great summer read. My first foray into Suzanne Snow’s work but, hopefully, it won’t be my last. If you’re looking for a summer romance, then give this one a try. 4*.
