‘The Sweet Shop of Second Chances’ by Hannah Lynn ~ @HMLynnauthor #BookReview
Starting over never tasted so good
Holly Berry has it all; a good corporate career, a steady boyfriend, and enough savings that they will soon be able to buy a nice little house. But when she finds out her boyfriend has been cheating on her, she decides to retreat to the Cotswolds and a place full of far sweeter memories.
However when Holly discovers the quaint village sweet shop that she worked in as a teenager is starting to crumble she decides that maybe the sensible life isn’t what she wants after all. Putting all her chocolate eggs in one basket, she says goodbye to the city, and sets her sights on Just One More.
After all, how hard can running a sweet shop be?
With charismatic Giles, ready to rescue her at every turn and the local bureaucrats breathing down her neck, it certainly isn’t the quiet life she expected. Can Holly really save the place from the the wicked developers, or will she be the reason Just One More closes its doors for good?
Full of laughter, sweet clean romance and cozy village life, The Sweet Shop of Second Chances will make you believe that the best things in life really are worth fighting for.
‘The Sweet Shop of Second Chances’ is the first book in The Holly Berry Sweet Shop series. I would like to thank the author for giving me a copy of this book to review.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was such a relaxing and charming read. I loved the author’s style of writing throughout and thought her to be very descriptive. Bourton-on-the-Water sounded absolutely gorgeous as did the sweet shop. The descriptions of the sweet shop and all the confectionary in there just about made my mouth water. To me it sounded like paradise. All those endless jars of sweets. Yum!
I really admired Holly. Little did she know what was about to happen to her. From having a steady job and a boyfriend her life literally changed in an instant. Before she knew it, she found herself in Bourton running a sweet shop and dealing with all the challenges it brought with it. A big and courageous move.
There were some lovely characters in this story. They all rallied around Holly when she needed help and there was a great sense of community spirit. Holly not only landed on her feet, but she made some good friends.
I am so glad that this is a series, and I cannot wait to meet up with Holly and her friends again. I am so excited to find out what happens next. If you like nice easy-going stories sprinkled with a little bit of romance, then I can recommend ‘The Sweet Shop of Second Chances’.
