I am absolutely delighted to be one of today’s stops on Kim Nash’s Amazing Grace blog tour!
Wow, what an absolutely adorable book Amazing Grace is! I have LOVED it!
If you are looking for a beautifully written, cosy, feel good, sometimes laugh out loud romance then you won’t go far wrong with this book.
Grace is such an instantly likeable character, (I have to admit I totally read this book picturing the author as Grace!) as are most of the characters in this book (including Becks!) with the exception of Mark, Grace’s ex-husband. I’m sure we’ve all known, or know, a Mark! He is so full of self-importance and it’s obvious he had a lasting affect on Grace’s self-esteem despite her new found independence. I really can’t cope with selfish men who seem to think that women should be grateful to be with them even though they do nothing to suit anyone but themselves. I did find myself wanting to scream at my paperwhite when Grace considers the possibility of taking him back!! I could totally understand Grace’s need to make their son, Archie, happy though. Us Mum’s do have a tendency to put our children first which is how it should be, but we do have to remember to look after our own well being also. This book highlights this perfectly.
Grace and Archie’s relationship is just adorable and it’s true, our babies soon grow up so we really do have to cherish every moment. My two are 18 and 17 now and not at all excited when I return home these days! Lol! It’s a good job Bella is (my Shih Tzu!) 😉
Vinnie is just gorgeous and I’m not at all surprised Grace falls for him so easily. They so reminded me of when me and my hubby met and I found their romance totally heart-warming. When you know, you know! His family is so lovely also. They really are a lovable bunch. They all share the sadness of losing a loved one and help each other to move on from such devastating grief.
I found the messages to Grace from her mother particularly emotional. I’m lucky to still have my Mum and can’t bare to think how I would cope without her in my life, so my heart went out to Grace in that respect. Life is short, cherish each other every day.
Amazing Grace is a fabulous character led story of love, loss and finding new happiness. I will be more than happy to recommend.
Many thanks to the author and publisher for my review copy.
She’s taking her life back, one step at a time…
Grace thought she had it all. Living in the beautiful village of Little Ollington, along with head teacher husband Mark and gorgeous son, Archie, she devoted herself to being the perfect mum and the perfect wife, her little family giving her everything she ever wanted.
Until that fateful day when she walked in on Mark kissing his secretary – and her perfect life fell apart.
Now she’s a single mum to Archie, trying to find her way in life and keep things together for his sake. Saturday nights consist of a Chinese takeaway eaten in front of the TV clad in greying pyjamas, and she can’t remember the last time she had a kiss from anyone aside from her dog, Becks…
Grace’s life needs a shake up – fast. So when gorgeous gardener Vinnie turns up on her doorstep, his twinkling eyes suggesting that he might be interested in more than just her conifers, she might just have found the answer to her prayers. But as Grace falls deeper for Vinnie, ten-year-old Archie fears that his mum finding love means she’ll never reconcile with the dad he loves.
So when ex-husband Mark begs her for another chance, telling her he’s changed from the man that broke her heart, Grace finds herself with an impossible dilemma. Should she take back Mark and reunite the family that Archie loves? Or risk it all for a new chance of happiness?
A funny, feel good romance about finding your own path and changing your life for the better – readers of Cathy Bramley, Jill Mansell and Josie Silver will love this uplifting read.
