Happy Tuesday all!
Hope everyone had an enjoyable long weekend (if you had one)! This was one of those books I picked up just to read a few pages and get a feel for the book and I ended up reading it pretty much from cover to cover. It was so good, so uplifting, so inspirational. I just loved it! Thanks so much Rachel for my invitation to the tour!🧁

What an absolute gem of a book! I picked this book up just to read a few pages, to see what it was all about, and I could not put it down! Edie jumps out of a plane to celebrate her life, goes to a party to celebrate jumping out of the plane, and soon there after a tragic event changes her life forever. In order to rehab from the tragedy Edie Heads to a small village on the Cornish coast to live with her auntie Josie. Josie is dealing with her own tragedy having recently lost her husband and no longer finding herself capable of leaving the house. Both ladies find themselves starting over in slightly different ways. With the support of a village full of lovable quirky characters. Will Edie and Josie heal?
Edie was such a great character, there was something about her that drew me in completely. Loved her big heart, her kind soul, and her resilience! Each chapter started off with a new milestone that Edie had reached, and I enjoyed watching her grow stronger both physically and emotionally. Her simple victories gave me a new appreciation for all the little things in life. I loved the bond that forms between Edie and Josie as they began to know each other better. There was an adorable little boy in the story named Cam that completely captured my heart, and his dad Barney wasn’t too bad either. Of course the story was filled with plenty of laughs: the craft classes, the baking the renovating.
This was a well told romcom filled with lots of humor and fabulous characters! The perfect book to escape with. I absolutely recommend this to lovers of the genre, Edie will steal your heart!

Author Bio –
Jane Linfoot is a best selling author, who lives in a muddy cottage, up a steep hill in Derbyshire, with her family, their pets, and an astonishing number of spiders. Although she loves seeing cow noses over the garden wall, she’s happy she can walk to a supermarket.
Jane grew up in North Yorkshire where she spent a lot of her childhood avoiding horizontal gales blowing off the sea, and wrote her first book by accident, while working as an architect, and renovating country houses. While she loves to write feelgood books that let readers escape, she’s always surprised to hear her stories make people laugh, admits to (occasionally) crying as she writes, and credits her characters for creating their own story lines.
Jane’s garden would be less brambly if she wasn’t on Facebook and Twitter so often. On days when she wants to be really scared, she rides a tandem.
Her latest books include a series of stand alone novels, based around a seaside wedding shop in Cornwall. Cupcakes and Confetti – The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea, Sequins and Snowflakes – Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop, and Bunting and Bouquets – Summer at the Little Wedding Shop, and most recently, The Little Cornish Kitchen. These are all published by Harper Impulse, an imprint of Harper Collins.
