Secrets never stay buried for long…
Lucy Harper has always been good at one thing: running from her past. But when her beloved Nana Lily passes away she has no choice except to return to the one place in the world she most wants to avoid…
Luna Bay hasn’t changed much in the eight years she has spent in London. The little Yorkshire village is still just as beautiful, but the new pub landlord is a gorgeous addition to the scenery!
Lucy only intended to stay for a day, yet when she discovers that Nana Lily has not only left her a cottage but also ‘The Broken Hearts Book Club’, Lucy is intrigued. Her Nana never have mentioned the club and Lucy can’t wait to get started, but walking into her first meeting she is more aware than ever that her past is finally catching up with her.
One way or another, Lucy must finally face the secrets she’s kept buried for so long – or spend the rest of her life on the run…
When Lucy Harper returns home to Luna Bay for grandmother’s funeral she doesn’t know what to expect. She hasn’t visited Luna Bay since she left eight years ago and is worried how people will react to her sudden return and she tries desperately hard not to find out, and plans on returning to London as soon as possible.
However, when she finds out that she has inherited her grandmother’s home and, rather strangely, her position as leader of The Broken Hearts Book Group Lucy finds it rather hard to leave her hometown.
Awww. That is how I felt after turning the final page of The Broken Hearts Book Club. I was all warm and fuzzy inside and it was exactly what I needed. The Broken Hearts Book Club is the perfect snuggle book. A book that you can fully immerse yourself in. And a book to get lost in over a weekend of endless cups of tea and flannelette pyjamas. That is how it makes you feel warm and snugly.
One thing about Lynsey James’s writing style is that she really does create characters that you care for. You become so involved with their lives that they come alive for you. They practically dance off the page.
Furthermore, her protagonist Lucy is the perfect blend of human – you see her heart and how kind she is but you also see her human side – one that has massive flaws. She is clumsy and bumbling and I think we can all relate to that on some level.
Lynsey James is a writer whose work just keeps getting better.
The Broken Hearts Book Club by Lynsey James is available now.
