The Guernsey Retreat
The Globeflower Agency kindly invited me to take part in this blog tour, when I read what this book is about and where it is set, I was happy to accept. By about half way through I was on Google, looking into a trip to Guernsey and could we take Harvey!
The characters in the book crave a quieter pace of life. I think it is something a number of us do now; to escape from the ever-growing perception that we have to be constantly on the go. That actually we can stop and enjoy the here and now. This ties in perfectly with my own thoughts and of course the values and mission of my blog.
When I first heard that there were two stories intertwined, I was a little worried I would get confused! However they are very closely connected so this didn't happen at all. The book is beautifully written, both in setting the scene and describing and getting to know the characters. You'll want to visit Guernsey and stay at the health centre at La Folie.
There is intrigue, mystery, friendship and romance
It was lovely seeing the relationships evolve and I am looking forward to reading more about them in the other books in the series. The mysteries are solved and much more besides, in this page turner. I finished the book in five days and am now ready to visit Guernsey!
You can purchase the book, through the Amazon link, and then keep reading for exciting news of a competition.
