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

A Winter’s Wish For the Cornish Midwife by Jo Bartlett – Awesome, heartwarming read.

My Review:

Thanks to Boldwood Books and NetGalley, too,
For this awesome book, here's my honest review:

Gosh what a dramatic start,
Enough to go and break your heart!
This story is a moving one
Filled with memories of someone who has gone.

It is five years since Toni's partner suddenly died
Now her new love she's trying to hide.
Three years they've been dating
But still she's determined to keep him waiting.

With routines to be kept and memories, too
Just what will Toni decide to do?
Can she learn to move forward and be happy again
Or will she reject Bobby even though it causes her pain? 

This is a story of the Cornish midwives who
Care for others and each other, too.
Read this to find out about their dreams and lives
In a story filled with love, babies, grief and surprises!

It is a tale of grief, loss and feelings,
Accepting the past but moving on, healing.
A story where love helps conquer fears
Showing things don't always end in tears.

With someone out to thwart new hopes and dreams
And new futures being planned, along with schemes
This is a lovely, heartwarming story of romances
Where love is at the heart of all their chances.


Brand new from the top 10 bestselling author of The Cornish Midwife. Perfect for fans of Call The Midwife

A secret love…

As winter descends on the coastal town of Port Agnes, midwife Toni Samuels’ mood is as dark as the winter clouds that roll in. Toni loves her job as a midwife, but her private life is falling apart. Because Toni is keeping a secret– a relationship with fellow male midwife Bobby that no one can ever know about.

A damaged hope…

Kind and gorgeous, Bobby is a huge hit at the midwifery centre, but he’s tired of keeping his feelings for Toni a secret – of always coming second best. He knows that Toni’s past is painful, but unless she can be open with her feelings for him, he’s prepared to walk away from their love.

Can love find a way?

Toni loves Bobby and wishes things could be different between them. But torn between her past and a future with him, everything seems hopeless. Until fate hands Toni one last chance…

Now Toni’s secret wish is in her hands…if only she can be brave enough to take a chance and make her dreams come true.

An uplifting and escapist read, perfect for fans of Christie Barlow, Jessica Redland and Holly Martin!

Stunning setting, wonderful characters, and oozing with warmth. A triumph from Jo Bartlett and a cracking start to what promises to be a fabulous series’ Jessica Redland

‘Perfectly written and set in the beating heart of a community, this story is a wonderful slice of Cornish escapism.’ Helen J Rolfe
