    3 and a half stars really A little too drawn out at some stages to my liking

    The first few days I wasn't able to read as much as I wanted because of my exams I had reached page 80 at the end But yesterday I finally found the time read and once I was plunged into the story I could not stop 'Gardens of Delight' is as hauntingly beautiful as 'Summer at the lake' which is the first Erica James book that I've read and made me buy this being the third Even though it didn't turn up entirely as I had hoped I still loved it The story takes you into the lives of Conrad Mac Lucy Orlando Helen and Savanah and many other but smaller characters Each character has its typical uirks and habtits even though not every character is as loveable as the other some are downright annoying they still keep you hooked on the book The different plotlines are beautifully interwoven and make you yearn for the next chapter I would defintely recomand it to everyone who either likes Erica James' writing style or loves those happy dappy beautiful romans with a strong background and its very own uniue character

    Very British but very delightful as the reader meets three unlikely couples a nephew and his stroke afflicted uncle Orlando and Lucy who have lived together for nine years strictly as friends and Helen third wife of an obnoxious wealthy businessman Hunter When Hunter's spoiled daughter Savannah shows in in Swanmere and begins to stir the pot of trouble out of sheer boredom all three couples are brought in contact Only half the group cares about gardens but all sign on for a Gardens of Delight tour to Lake Como in Italy one I wouldn't mind taking myself There each must come to terms with secrets in their lives Lucy meets her estranged father Helen learns she cannot endure the marriage she made to care for her elderly grandmother and nephew and uncle reveal some startling truths about themselves The ending is perhaps not uite what we want for everyone concerned but fans of the late Maeve Binchy would surely enjoy this author

    I didn't have any high exceptions for this book and the cover is fairly dull but like most chick lit I ended up loving it Lots of characters with tangled storylines I really liked how the author didn't take the easy way out in the end with one of the love stories I was expecting predictable and was pleasantly surprised when it wasn't Also had me laughing one minute and sobbing the next I will look out for books by Erica James

    I enjoyed this story it was pure escapism for me I liked the eclectic mix of characters and the friendships they formed As it is spring here and everything is starting to grow it was timely to read about gardens I think I would like to go on a trip like this to tour beautiful gardens in a beautiful area of the world Some all? of the romantic relationships depicted were sappy or unrealistic or just lame but that could just be me as this is not my usual genre

    One of if not the first Erica James book I read and have been a fan ever since Thoroughly enjoyed it Light refreshing escapism characters so real I only wish she could write faster as I cannot get enough of these books

    AudioI bypassed this audiobook many times because the synopsis didn't grab me WellI loved this story So engaging and smooth with a few unexpected twists The reader of the audio version was excellent and I couldn't have read it better

    Not a chick lit reader Same predictable plot detectable by page 35 which is when I stopped reading
