Sometimes you’ve got to run away to find yourself… 

Twenty-four-year-old Lucy needs a fresh start. Forever single and frustrated with her studies she gives up everything to run a little library in the leafy village of Tilley Moreton. 

Lucy loves reading almost as much as she loves fixing other people’s problems, so starting a book club seems like the perfect opportunity to do both. As she meets her new members, it’s clear she’s going to have her work cut out for her. Handsome but silent Callum is the biggest puzzle of them all... 

But Lucy’s meddling begins to cause more problems than it solves, and no one is more surprised than Lucy when Callum steps in to help. Could there be more to him than people think? 

As Callum and Lucy start working together to fix the broken hearts of the library’s most loyal customers, the first sparks of romance begin to fly.

Can they right all the trouble Lucy has created, and might there be a chance for a happy ending of their own?

Simply fantastic, a wonderfully heart warming story about Lucy and the other people that attend her book club. 

Lucy is wonderful she besides being a book lover, also just wants to help her friends achieve their dreams. Some may see it as meddling but she had a good heart and really wants the best for everyone.  Somehow everything that happens in the story has Lucy as the catalyst to it. 

There is Lia who dreams of dancing and is currently her mothers carer, Hattie who is single mother to Poppy and having family troubles of her own. Oscar is a lot older than the others but he is hiding a secret and I was really touched by his story.  Then there is Callum, he is only 19, not from the best family in town, but is nothing like his parents or brothers. He has the signs of becoming a remarkable young man. 

In fact Callum is perhaps the surprise character of the group, and I loved seeing how he changed over the course of the story. Actually loved seeing all the characters development. 

It took me a short while to get into the rhythm of this book given it really has 5 main characters, and each gets a good amount of coverage, as the chapters change focus between a few of them. It does allow you to get to know all their situations really well. 

I'm becoming a huge fan of Emma Davies work, and this has made me even more impressed with her writing. It is a fabulous book and I'm so happy to have taken a break from my Christmas reading stacks to read it. 

Thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for this copy which  I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
