The Great Summer Street Party Part 2: GI’s and Ginger Beer by Georgia Hill #BookReview #One More Chapter #4.5*

Welcome to Berecombe-by-the-Sea for a year of very special celebrations…

This year sees the seventy-fifth anniversary of D-Day. We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to those brave boys who went to fight on French beaches for our freedom.

And now Berecombe is playing host to our American allies once more. All surviving soldiers who were billeted in the town have been invited for street parties, a D-Day parade, a black-tie ball at The Henville and much, much more.

So, come along, get dressed up and join in the fun!

A second chance…or a new romance?

With summer having arrived in Berecombe with sunshiny gusto, and the D-Day anniversary celebrations on the horizon, there’s much to keep Ashley Lydden busy as she settles further into her new life by the seaside. So why can’t she stop thinking about Eddie McQueen?

They came so close to having it all, but now Ashley isn’t sure where they stand. With flirty Cornish painter Jake Tremayne taking a shine to Ashley and asking her to sit for a portrait, things get even more complicated.

It’s shaping up to be a summer of love…but which man will claim Ashley’s heart?

Delightfully Entertaining!

The second instalment in what is proving to be a terrifically entertaining series!

Ashley Lydden is continuing with her rehabilitation and really becoming a part of life in Berecombe. She’s discovering that her days are filling up but she can’t stop thinking about Eddie McQueen, the American who doesn’t seem to be around much since dropping his bombshell. Ashley’s not quite sure where she stands with him, and now painter Jake Tremayne has come along; good looking and charming, he has asked her to sit for a portrait. Summer and romance go hand in hand, but will Ashley find it?

Having enjoyed the first book, I was really looking forward to this second one – and I was not disappointed! While Ashley is the main character, Berecombe is filled with characters old and new and by the end of this novel I felt I knew them all so much better. Georgia Hill really knows her stuff; she has created a fascinating tale and I’m already looking forward to reading the next book which is on next month’s list. Delightfully entertaining and one I’m happy to recommend. 4.5*.

I purchased this one in ebook format; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.

Author Details

I’ve always written – journals, diaries, some really bad poetry! And I’ve always talked a lot about writing a novel. When I moved house for about the ninth time in as many years and lost my precious notebooks, I decided the time was right to write! So I began a long short story based on two characters who nagged and nagged until they were written down. I completely rewrote that story and the result was my first novel Pride and Perdita.

I’ve moved on to write warm-hearted and up-lifting contemporary and timeslip romances about love, the power and joy in being an eccentric oldie and finding yourself and your community.  There’s always a dog. It’s usually a naughty spaniel of which, unfortunately, I’ve had much experience! My books are now firmly rooted in seaside towns similar to the one I live in. I love history especially when it insists on rearing up and battering at the present.

As a child I had an invisible friend called Gonky who lived on the third stair  from the bottom (true story). As an adult my invisible friends inhabit my head and refuse to leave until I’ve committed them to paper.

Readers of my books can escape into a warm bath of words and, no matter what challenges I throw at my characters they will, ultimately, have a happy ending.
