book of the week - Hubble Bubble by Jane Lovering
1 November 2017

Really enjoyed this rom com romp from talented and witty author Jane Lovering. Jane is on my 'must-read' list, whereby I watch out for new books by that person, or in my case, new audiobook productions of their library.

This one was first published by Choc Lit in 2013, just as the wave of ebooks was exploding and received some impressive reviews. It's based on a type of 'serendipity' theme, with a touch of amateur witchcraft thrown in, and as usual features Jane's trademark turns of phrase that make me smile to myself or laugh out loud as I'm driving along in the car.

"Holly Grey joined the woman's group to keep her friend out of trouble - and now she's knee-deep in hassle, in the form of apocalyptic weather, armed men and midwifery.

Kai has been drawn to darkest Yorkshire by his desire to find out who he really is.

What he hadn't bargained on was getting caught up in amateur magic and dealing with a bunch of women who are trying really hard to make their dreams come true."

Her more recent books have been even more well crafted, so do check out Jane's back list too.
