Happy Publication Day!!
Having read Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop, I was so eager to get my hands on the second installment of the talented author Rebecca Raisin. Her books really make my heart smile. They are light but deep, shadowed yet joyous and always filled with hope and love.
Aria loved TJ and he died 3 years ago. She had promised never to love again. Yet a hint of love came in the form of Jonathan. With her best friend Rosie and a long lost diary from TJ, she soon gave a second chance to life and love.
Having read many works of this talented author, I waited for the right day to read this book as I knew things about the world out would pull me down, then I would need an uplifter. It was today, and this was the book which brought me peace for a few hours.
Emotions made my heart tremble as I read Aria’s story as she healed and found closure. The Rebecca’s love for books was well reflected in Aria. Works of many great authors were mentioned in the prose. Friendships and relationships formed the core while forgiveness and acceptance were seen in the pages.
I was transported from my home to the land of France as the book camper van traveled to different places and found little gems of bookshops on the way. Love too returned with Jonathan, Rosie and her husband had a few surprises up their sleeves.
The book was everything I hoped and more. I was turbulent and angry, and it soothed me with its gentle words. What blessed peace from my thoughts for a few hours!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

This summer will change everything!
Aria Summers knows what she wants.
A life on the road with best friend Rosie and her beloved camper-van-cum-book-shop, and definitely, definitely, no romance.
But when Aria finds herself falling – after one too many glasses of wine, from a karaoke stage – into the arms of Jonathan, a part of her comes back to life for the first time in years.
Since her beloved husband died Aria has sworn off love, unless it’s the kind you can find in the pages of a book. One love of her life is quite enough.
And so Aria tries to forget Jonathan and sets off for a summer to remember in France. But could this trip change Aria’s life forever…?
