What else do you do when you are desperately clinging to the last days of summer, even if the weather is against you, what better way to spend a bank holiday weekend than to pick up a good book in which to immerse yourself. For anyone who has been following my blog from the beginning will know I am a huge Amanda Prowse fan and have read everything she has had published, from her very first novel Poppy Day. 'A Little Love' is Amanda's fourth novel in the 'No Greater Love' series. Essentially the story is about Pru Plum and her cousin Milly who have stuck together through thick and thin from childhood. The girls didn't have it easy growing up and resorted to things that they are not proud of in order to survive. But that was a long time ago and now they are the successful owners of Plum Patisserie in Mayfair. Pru Plum had never married or had children. The nearest she has been to being a mother is in looking after her neice who she adores. She is her brothers daughter who came to live with Pru and Milly after her mother had left her and her father found her couldn't cope looking after a young girl and cope with his addiction to drugs. And so it was Roberta (Bobby) has come to live with her aunt. Pru doted on Bobby and hoped she had been able to give her the kind of upbringing she deserved. Bobby is now an adult and about to be married when a tragedy occurs and Pru's life will change forever. . Out of such a tragedy Pru finds love for the first time in her 66 years, but will her past destroy her chance at a happy future and everything she has worked so hard to achieve.
This is yet another fantastic offering from Amanda Prowse and I'm afraid that whenever D has come to find me he's found me with my nose in this book, including whilst I was cooking the dinner.
If you love novels that are about everyday going on's of life with a little romance thrown in then you will undoubtedly enjoy Amanda Prowse novels.
Happy reading one and all
hope the weather is being a little kinder to you where you are.
