Many thanks to Victoria Joss and publisher Aria for my spot on this Blog Tour.

This was one of the proper British reads which reflected their humor and banter. It took me some time to traverse through it so it was an extremely slow read, but the core story of a group of friends was very sweet and warm.

Plot arc of friends turning into lovers caught my fancy. Simon and Clarrie were the best of friends, though he wanted something more and she kept refusing him till he makes a bet with her – if their team won the pub quiz, she would go out with him. And the story rolled on…

My first book by Mary Jayne Baker, the story was warm with the depth of their friendship. Told in the POV of Clarrie, I got to know Simon who was a great guy, absolutely apt for her. Their chemistry was well shown in their banter. Mary Jayne’s writing gave these characters a depth.

I love when a book explores and shows me different facets of friendships and family. This had a group of friends and their dynamics with each other. Their byplays were childish but came from a place of familiarity. Their conversations were a hoot when they got together, though not my kinda humor. Family is everything and the book exemplified that. Each character had a tale to tell.

This was one of my different reads and had its own sweet tale to tell… Slowly… Very slowly.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

There are some people who seem like they have all the answers in life. Clarrie Midwinter isn’t one of them.

At the age of 26, tomboy Clarrie is still struggling to become a ‘proper’ grown-up. She’s eternally strapped for cash, she hasn’t had a date in nearly a year and her attempts to quit smoking tend to take a nosedive after the second pint. Most annoyingly of all, her ladykiller best friend Simon just won’t stop asking her out. The only thing keeping her sane is her pub quiz team, the Mighty Morphin Flower Arrangers.

But when Simon bets her a date their team will win the quiz league, Clarrie is forced to confront what she really wants out of life – and love. Is it finally time for her to grow up?
