I know last month it took me a little while to decide which books to download as I was interested in 3 books. Well this month I’ve found it even harder to choose as non of these books actually stand out to me or even entice me to want to read them!
So I have spent lots of time rereading the synopsis of all of this months choices and managed to whittle it down to 2 books. “The Other Girl” by C D Major and “Honeysuckle Season” by Mary Ellen Taylor??? Decisions decisions!!!
Then I started to think maybe I should go with “The Other Girl” as it’s in a genre that I don’t read very often. So I read the reviews, ok so there weren’t many to go from until I came across a 1 star review and this reviewer helped me make up my mind as they expressed more than likely how I would feel about this book.
So I ended up choosing “Honeysuckle Season” which is contemporary fiction and a genre that I probably read the most. So it just goes to show you that even book bloggers need to read book reviews.
So to see the 1 star review that helped me click the button below:
Honeysuckle Season by Mary Ellen Taylor, Pages: 343, Publication Date: 1 September 2020
Synopsis: From bestselling author Mary Ellen Taylor comes a story about profound loss, hard truths, and an overgrown greenhouse full of old secrets.
Adrift in the wake of her father’s death, a failed marriage, and multiple miscarriages, Libby McKenzie feels truly alone. Though her new life as a wedding photographer provides a semblance of purpose, it’s also a distraction from her profound pain.
When asked to photograph a wedding at the historic Woodmont estate, Libby meets the owner, Elaine Grant. Hoping to open Woodmont to the public, Elaine has employed young widower Colton Reese to help restore the grounds and asks Libby to photograph the process. Libby is immediately drawn to the old greenhouse shrouded in honeysuckle vines.
As Libby forms relationships and explores the overgrown—yet hauntingly beautiful—Woodmont estate, she finds the emotional courage to sort through her father’s office. There she discovers a letter that changes everything she knows about her parents, herself, and the estate. Beneath the vines of the old greenhouse lie generations of secrets, and it’s up to Libby to tend to the fruits born of long-buried seeds.
