I’d like to thank the author, Lynda Renham, for an arc in return for an honest review.

This is the third book in The Little Perran Romances and I would advise you to read book 2 as this story continues from then.  However, to appreciate all the characters and the setting I would encourage you to read the whole series, which in order is:

  1. A Christmas Romance (The Little Perran Romances book 1)
  2. A Village Romance (The Little Perran Romances book 2)
  3. A Summer Romance (The Little Perran Romances book 3)

Total price to purchase all 3 ebooks at time of print (2/7/16) is £3.98 … great price for a wonderful, fun, flirty series of stories set in an idyllic village in the Cotswolds.

We left the villagers in book 2 getting use to the two new inhabitants of Little Perran.  Billy Baxter, aged rocker, was just getting to grips with country life with the much needed help of Cynthia.  His celebrity status brought the press and media to the village and chaos erupted with hilarious consequences.  However, behind this frivolity danger was lurking concealed to one of our much loved villagers.

Milly was now working for the author Ashley Wilmot-Fox and she makes a startling discovery and immediately confronts Ash about it.  She is shocked and angry with this new found information but surprisingly Ash feels quite enlightened that Milly has been frank with her words.  Romances starts slowly blossoming for Milly and Ash but can they stop the horrors from her past spoiling their future?

Birdie also has to quarrel with her heart and she struggles with her conscious for the right direction.

This was another book full of humour and warmth from Lynda Renham.  I was so pleased to rejoin the characters I had grown to love in Little Perran.  I love Lynda’s frankness with her writing it makes the characters so much more real and easily imaginable in your head.  This story also had a little darkness and drama it also had episodes of lust but the changes in direction fitted in well with the storyline.  I hope this isn’t the last we’ll hear of our friends in Little Perran.  5/5*

I’d like to thank the author, Lynda Renham, for an arc in return for an honest review.

This is the second book in The Little Perran Romances series.  A series of novellas set in a beautiful, idyllic village in the Cotswolds where love finds a way of blossoming in the villagers lives …

A Christmas Romance is book 1 in The Little Perran Romances and you can find my review here.  The novellas can be read as standalone but to appreciate and gain the most enjoyment out of the stories I would encourage you to read them all.

Billy Baxter is a has-been rocker, his recent album is not doing great sales wise, probably mimicking his life at the moment.  His manager thinks it’ll be a great idea to clean up his act by moving out of London and into the country.  Billy reluctantly agrees, packs his bags and guitar and zooms off to Little Perran.  His arrival doesn’t go smoothly and people see the loud, rocker side of Billy immediately.

Another newcomer to the village, trying to escape his past, is author Ashley Wilmot-Fox.  Following a terrible accident Ashley is suffering with his injuries.  With a bashed up arm and a limp his melancholy towards his life with his disability is clearly visible until he spots shop worker Milly.  Milly’s kindness and chatter charm him but he refuses to let his heart be broken again. However, when he places an advert for a Housekeeper/Domestic Helper and Milly applies for the job he can’t help himself and gives her the job.

Milly is relatively new to the village, has settled in really well, she works in the local village shop and also enjoys pottery in her spare time.  The locals have warmed to Milly and it feels like she has been part of the village for years.  Sadly, Milly has a secret past in the city and the village has been a welcome distraction for her.

We meet again the lovely villagers we fell in love with in book 1: A Christmas Romance; Frankie and Roux, Birdie and Ben.  It was lovely to catch up with them.

How will aged rocker Billy Baxter cope with the more slower life in the country and will the villagers take to this forthright, brash man?

Will author Ashley Wilmot-Fox find the strength and the words to write again?

Will the past for our villagers old and new destroy their hopes and dreams for the future?

I loved this second book in the series, lots of new characters to welcome into the village.  I love Lynda Renham’s writing style, she is very honest and frank and true to the characters. Lynda has great whit and humour and you can imagine the characters that Lynda has created on the pages. I was just getting into this charming village story with all it’s possibilities for lots of twists and turns in the villagers lives and I came to the end BUT I’m so excited that Lynda has book 3: A Summer Romance due to be published on the 1st July.

This story is fun, fruity and fabulous and has left me wanting more … 5/5*
