    4 Sweet Home Stars This book left me with a smile on my face and an urge to go visit New Zealand this is a book about going home, new beginnings, second chances, friendship, romance, and family all set in the quaint and charming small town of Bibury, New Zealand.Isla has returned home after living for 10 years in London she moves in with her grandmother Bridget who has a past that Isla knows nothing about. The majority of the book is set in present time following Isla as she builds a new life in her hometown and possibly rekindles an old romance or not We also got little snippets of Bridget s life in her late teens in the late 50s grandmother and granddaughter have in common than they ever knew..This was such an enjoyable read filled with such lovely characters characters you would want to become friends wi...

    3.5 A Feel Good Romance Rounded up to 4 for Goodreads and Sweet Home Summer is a feel good read, that warmed my heart.I enjoyed reading this delightful book but I just felt it took a long time to get into the storyline.I couldn t connect to the characters straight away there was a fair amount of swapping and changing between time lines which I do enjoy.However there was a lot going on and the characters kept being introduced throughout the time lines I got a little confused.I found the flash backs for the grandmother Bridget made the story for me.I found myself drifting off to memories that my nan shared with me For example the dances My nan used to go dancing and jitter bugging with the soldiers.I enjoyed discovering Bridget s past.Bridget is a big character and by far my favourite She leads a busy lifestyle with playing Bowls, bingo etc. I hope i have her energy and zest for life when I m her age Bridget had me laughing out loud on many occasions throughout the book with her witty sense of humour and her fun personality.I think Bridget could have a story just on her own she ...

    Having read and devoured The Traveller s Daughter by Michelle Vernal last year, I jumped at the chance to read Sweet Home Summer Now first off, I have to mention that gorgeous cover, it s absolutely stunning It s so summery and just what I needed after the miserable UK winter Isla Brookes is in London working when she realises she has had enough She heads to a retreat in Los Angeles to chill out before returning to her home town of Bibury in New Zealand Isla moves back in with her grandmother Bridget and she tries to figure out what to do with her life.I absolutely adored this book, I found a lot of myself in Isla and I could relate to her so much I recently returned home from a few years in Australia and I fully understood some of the feelings and emotions you feel when coming back to your home country Nothing changes yet you are completely different after spending time on the other side of the world Even though I lived in Australia, I knew a lot of people from NZ so some of the terms and phrases Michelle uses I understood It was such a joy to read a book that is set in NZ, I don t think I ve read one yet Isla was someone who I felt I could be friends with and I was jealous of the friendship she made with A...

    This story did take me a while to get into, I got confused over where the character was as she seemed to flit all over the world as the locations changed leaving it feeling a little disjointed, but then it settled just as Isla did and I started to get a feel of what the book was about and where it was heading.There are a few characters in this book and I loved Bridget and she is such a wonderful sounding woman who made me chuckle on so many occasions There is a time slip element to this story as Bridget tells Isla of her life and some of the memories of the 1950 s You really get a good story from Bridget s perspective about the time, history of the town and life.Once the plot started to make itself known you begin to get an idea of what it is all about The community makes itself known in various ways as new plans and the way in which it rallies comes into play I did kind of know where the story was going before I got there but sometimes it s...

    I can t put my finger on it, but I just didn t gel with this book at all I found it took over half the story before I actually started enjoying it, and from there on was where for me it became a good story I think part of it is there are a lot of characters, as there is a focus on Isla and her friends, Bridget her grandmother and her friends, and also the flash backs to Bridgets past with even characters introduced, plus of course the rest of their family too So the elements of the story I did enjoy I can t really specify as they are far enough in that it would be considered spoilers, but I did like the various relationships and the potential relationships that were in the small town of Bibury The story that Bridget tells about her past is ultimately tragic but still shocks too, and I did feel for her a bit For me though the best character was Carl who just added an extra dimension to any chapter he was in, His friendship with Isla and Annie meant the...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this Kiwi based story by Michelle Vernal, an author who seems to have a lovely knack for storytelling This is the second book by this author I have read and I am looking forward to reading novels by her Isla left small town New Zealand life behind her and escaped to the very big smoke of London, 10 years ago In the process she left all of her family and friends behind, including her first love, Ben After so long though, she is burnt out and escapes to California to find herself She then makes her way back to Bibury and back to the people who love her If I say any , I am worried that I am going to give away the whole plot.so I will stop here Needless to say, this is a clever and charming book This is truly a delightful story which so many people can no doubt relate to The fact that it is set in New Zealand, one of my favourite places in the world, adds to its charms So many threads in this family and community and one by one, the author ties them...
