Review: Down on Daffodil Lane by Rebecca Pugh
A charmed life…
Maria Charm’s world might have recently crumbled, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to let it get her down.
Sure, her ex-husband broke her heart and decimated her trust, and while it would be so tempting to spend forever in her dressing gown, a tub of ice-cream in one hand and a glass of Chardonnay in the other, Maria wants more from her new—single—life!
A make over of her lovely little cottage on Daffodil Lane and a new job at Harriet’s café are just the distractions Maria needs to carve a new life in the country. One distraction she doesn’t need is Mr Tall, Brooding and Handsome from down the lane! ‘Maria may only be in town temporarily, but there’s nothing temporary about the tingles she feels at gorgeous Brad’s touch…
After everything she’s been through, can Maria ever trust a man again? Could risking her heart with Brad lead to a charmed life on Daffodil Lane?
Find out in Rebecca Pugh’s dazzling novel, Down on Daffodil Lane!
Maria Charm heads to Daffodil Lane to get some well needed ‘me time’ after a rough divorce. Having been with her Husband since they were in school she didn’t know life as an adult without him and the adjustment was proving to be difficult and as much as she loves her family they were proving to be a little stifling.
The beautiful Daffodil Lane was just the breath of fresh air she needed and as she adjusts with a new job in the local café and forming some really amazing friendships Maria starts to see that life beyond marriage can be fulfilling and happy.
She also meets Brad, a man who has also seen his fair share of heartbreak and as they see this echo of broken love in each other they need to discover if they can come together or if it will just be too difficult.
This is Rebecca Pugh’s third novel and she just goes from strength to strength with each one. This is a heartfelt novel full of the delicate feelings that come with trying to get life back on track after the person you trust most in the world tears it apart. But it is full of hope and love, it’s a reminder that people can move on from these situations and that they do.
Her locations are so real and yet idealistic, you want to be sucked through the book and land in the village. As Maria and Brad go horse riding in this novel I’m desperate to jump in the pages and join them! You can smell the scents and feel the textures.
This is a must read and I’m keen to see what Rebecca Pugh pulls out of the bag for book four!
