The Life on the Moors Series # 3
It’s been two years since glamorous and ambitious Violet Smith fell head-over-heels in love with blacksmith Jimby Fairfax, and moved back home to the North Yorkshire village of Lytell Stangdale to be with him.
Life couldn’t get much sweeter. Their romance is blooming and Romantique – the business she set up with Jimby’s sister Kitty, designing luxurious underwear and burlesque costumes with the odd wedding dress throw in – is thriving.
But on a romantic weekend break, a face from her past triggers a series of events which send Violet into turmoil. She finds herself with no alternative but to reveal a secret she’s buried deep for the past sixteen years. A secret she hasn’t shared with anyone, not even her best friends, Kitty and Molly, and they share everything.
With the revelation forcing a wedge between herself and Jimby, heartbroken Violet fears that he won’t ever be able to think of her in the same way again and won’t want anything more to do with her.
As ever, Kitty and Molly rally round, offering their advice and support but Vi is worried that keeping her secret was just a step too far for Jimby.
Will she succeed in showing him their love is strong enough to overcome it?
I have not read book 1 yet. (Mentally adds to to-be-read-pile 🙂 ) but I have devoured the previous part. I was enchanted by the story as well as by the writing style. When Rachel announced she had a tour for the 3rd book, I HAD to be on the tour and voila 🙂
Book 1 tells the tale of Kitty, in book 2 we get to know Molly a lot better and in book 3 it’s Viiolet’s turn.
This story really made me laugh out loud. Jimby is a bit accident prone and it creates the most funny situations, but he is also very loveable.
Sometimes something really heartbreaking happens to you and even though you have a wonderful family and friends, it’s too hard to talk about it. You keep it hidden deep down and you really do not want to think about it. But hiding it does not make it go away and when the past catches up with the present, it’s time to reveal your secret. How are the people you love most in the world going to react? Will they forgive you for your silence or are relationships going to be broken beyond repair?
This was an awesome book where miracles are possible. 5 stars.
