Lovely #Contemporary #Romance – Just For The Summer by Fay Keenan – #BookReview

When Kate Harris accepts the job of redecorating her brother Aidan’s house in the picturesque town of Willowbury, she knows it’s just a stop gap before she has to decide what to do with the rest of her life. While her three sons spend the summer holiday with their father, Kate has an opportunity to prove to herself that there is a new life, after her divorce.

Harry Sinclair is the owner of Vale Volumes book shop on Willowbury High Street. Content, if a little bored with his lot, his shop, as well as his life, could do with freshening up. When Kate offers to spruce up Vale Volumes ready for the visit of a famous author, they find they have a lot more in common than colour schemes. 

But both have secrets and responsibilities, and when the trials of family life threaten their burgeoning friendship, can they overcome the experiences of their pasts? Will Somerset’s most magical town cast its spell on them? Or will Kate and Harry have to concede that their friendship really is just for the summer?

Let Fay Keenan transport you to the perfect British summertime, with beautiful countryside, an unforgettable romance, and just the right dose of escapism.  Perfect for all fans of Cathy Bramley, Fern Britton and Katie Fforde.

After posting rhyming reviews for children’s books,

I was challenged to do so for some adult ones, too

So please come and take a good look

And see this rhyming review I’ve shared with you!

My Review

I really recommend you give this contemporary romance
Much more than just a passing glance,
It tells what happens to Kate Harris with her life changing
Her husband leaves her and all needs rearranging !

The house is sold but where should she move and what should she do?
Should she stay where they live or move and start anew?
Her brothers live in Willowbury and welcome her there
With her sons, planning the summer to share.

She starts redecorating her brother’s house and soon discovers that
She’s made an enemy of his irksome cat
In the coffee shop she dramatically meets bookshop owner Harry
Their attraction is there but will they tarry?

This small community is great, the diverse characters, too,
Including her three sons who each have different ideas, its true.
The chance for romance is a possibility but just for the summer?
No, surely not, there’s nothing dumber!

This is an engaging story with character who’re fun
With secrets to reveal as the decorating work gets done.
It is a story of fresh starts, new schemes,
And taking the chance to follow your dreams.

My thanks to Boldwood Books and NetGalley who
Gave me a copy of this book with no obligation to review.
