Earlier this year I finally got around to reading Sealed With A Kiss by my twitter friend Rachel Lucas. I loved it, and couldn’t wait to read her next book – Coming Up Roses. When Rachel asked me to be part of the Coming Up Roses blog tour, I leapt at the chance.
The story centres around Daisy who has escaped to the country to recover from a broken heart. She wants to keep herself to herself but soon finds she can’t avoid joining in with village life.
I read Coming Up Roses pretty much in one sitting. The characters are fun, and the way Rachel describes village life made me smile. I have know idea if she paints a fair picture though, being a city girl born and bred, but it’s certainly what I would imagine it to be like.
I love the way Rachel writes. She paints pictures with her words and you find yourself drawn in, completely rooting for the characters. I laughed out loud on several occasions, and had to keep reading to see what happened next.
If you are looking for a fun, feel good summer read then Coming Up Roses is for you.
