    Jenny colgan books are always like a massive hug in book form The kind of hug that you desperately need and when you get that hug everything is made that little bit better and that little bit brighter I absolutely loved this amazing book.

    Zoe s a single mom with no money living in London Her son s father never seems to have money to help, so when she gets a job offer in Scotland as a nanny and a bookseller, she takes 4 year old Hari, who has never spoken, to the remote Scottish village Much to her chagrin, she learns that the children have gone through at least 6 nannies in the recent past, and are determined to be rid of the 7th as soon as they can Jenny Colgan is a great storyteller, and I enjoyed reading about Zoe s adventur...

    Single mother Zoe is desperately struggling to make ends meet in London Her 4 year old son Hari is perfect, except for the fact he doesn t speak at all When Zoe s landlord raises the rent on her dismal studio flat, she realises she has nowhere to turn.When an opportunity for not one but two jobs arises in Scotland, Zoe decides this could be the change she desperately needs.Faced with her new boss Ramsay, and his 3 unruly children, Zoe begins to wonder if she s made a terrible mistake But the Highlands have a way of getting under your skin and in her heart, Zoe doesn t know whether she could ever leave.Firstly, I would like to start this review by mentioning the foreword from the author I am not a great reader of this section usually, but I find Colgan fills hers with as much fun and wit as the rest of the book However, this particular piece really sat with me, especially this line If you read It means there are heads to be in, lives to be lived than simply your own I have loved books my whole life, having started reading from an early age, books hold some of my fondest memories One of which is snuggling down at bedtime next to my mum for a chapter of the next great adventure As an only child and being quite introverted, I found that by devouring stories I could ...

    I loved everything about this book Zoe is in desperate need of somewhere to stay and a way of earning some money Her friend finds her somewhere to stay where the children need an aupair and she gets to work on the fabulous touring book bus, whilst Nina has bed rest whilst expecting her new baby.The children she looks after are a real handful but it was fascinating to see how Zoe dealt with each problem and how quickly she drew them into her world The small boy also helps her son who has elective mutism I have a daughter with selective mutism , so I found this aspect to the story very interesting.Zoe also finds the bookshop regulars hard to get onside and has to find her own way to make the bookshop busy, wi...

    4.5 Stars This book totally surprised me I went into this one thinking it was a cute summer romance with a ditsy woman who loved books, boy was I wrong Jenny Colgan has introduced us to a family in chaos Zoe packs up and heads to Scotland with her four year old son Hari, from busy London to become a nanny for a family with three children What she did not expect were the issues this family has and still is dealing with She also works part time driving the local bookmobile when the owner is put on bedrest during the end of her pregnancy What happens is a wonderful, sometimes amusing, sometimes sad, but always entertaining story.The Bookshop plays and important part in the story, not only adding funds to Zoe s coffers, but getting both her and Hari out of the huge estate home She meets some great characters along the way, who come to her rescue by the end of the book, as well as helping her to fit in and feel like her and Hari finally have a home The children drove me crazy at the beginning of the book, but as I got to know about them, as well as the circumstances of the family, I wanted to reach out and pull them to my breast There was also a lot of humour to offset the darker, sadder spots in the book The chicken scenes are hilarious The descriptions of the land and the people, that are included in the book, made we want to get on a plane and head off ...

    Single mum Zoe is struggling to bring up her son Hari in a tiny bedsit in Wembley so when an opportunity arises to relocate to Loch Ness, Scotland and act as au pair to three children whilst also running a mobile bookshop she jumps at the opportunity, envisaging herself as a modern Mary Poppins reading books to rosy cheeked cherubs The reality is somewhat different, the bookshop s customers rely heavily on the bookshop s owner Nina to know the books they want need and Zoe is floundering The children Zoe is supposed to look after are by turns rude, insulting and appear to exist entirely on toast and marmalade, the housekeeper is surly and unhelpful and the children s father is remote and takes little interest in his children s lives.This reminds me of a book I ve read before but I can t remember the name, it s also a bit like the plot of that Sophia Loren film Houseboat The children have run off six previous au pairs, in fact the youngest, Patrick, says he s going to call her Nanny Seven because she won t be there long enough for him to learn her name Nine year old Mary is just plain rude and the oldest, Shackleton, is twelve but huge and seems to do nothing but eat The children fight constantly, verbally and physically, the...

    3.5 5 A sweet book with a gorgeous setting as always, but I don t think I ll remember a ton about it in the months to come.

    This one surprised me a bit I thought it would be a quick little summer romance novel with no real plotline, but i was pleasenty surprised This book will speak to anyone who loves books I love how often they quote lines from other great books and Authors The way Jenny is able to make you fall in love with Scotland, with all it s scenery , characters and local quirks shows how lovely a storyteller she is Although it s a romance, I love how she touched on mental health issues in such a sensitive...
