Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Lovely relaxing read in an island community – Spring Siren by Georgina Troy

Pull on your sunglasses, spring is here!

When Finn Gallichan, the new man in artist, Jools Jones’ life leaves the boardwalk to go travelling for several months, she’s not too worried. She has her paintings to work on as well as keeping busy helping her grandmother run the only second-hand bookshop in the village. She’s happy to wait for Finn’s return to pick up where they left off their relationship. That is, until she decides to secretly help a new customer trace a copy of a book he wrote years before and meets his grandson, Marius Arnesen, a glass artist who, fascinated by her paintings, asks her to take part in an art exhibition. 

When she begins to suspect that Finn isn’t quite the person she had hoped and Marius steps up to save someone close to her, she wonders if maybe she’s made the wrong decision…

My Review:

This is the fourth book in a series set in the fictional town on the island of Jersey – but I can vouch for the fact that it works as a standalone as I haven’t read any of the previous books in the series. Each book apparently has one of four friends as the main protagonist and in this story that is Jools Jones. The story is related from her point of view.

After just a couple of dates with Finn Gallichan, he leaves the island to travel for a few months – and the only communication Jools has with him is a solitary post card. Jools has a busy life, with looking after her grandmother and helping run her second-hand bookshop, keeping in touch with her friends and others in their close knit community as well as working on her paintings which are proving increasingly popular. She’s not worried about waiting for Finn until she meets another person walking their grandparent’s dog! Marius Arnesen is an attractive glass artist and the two connect on a variety of levels. Should she wait for Finn or give Marius a chance? Even with new opportunities, special events and dilemmas, this is still a lovely, relaxing read.

This is a story of friendships, supporting each other, family dynamics, choices and, of course, romance. It is a gentle journey, with stormy seas, beautiful art work and a real sense of community. I’ll definitely look out for more by this author and highly recommend this to anyone wanting a relaxing story in a glorious community.

Thank you for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
