There’s No Place Like Home
Isabel, Izzy to her friends, has got nothing left to lose when she makes the bravest decision of her life.
A month living under canvas on the Yorkshire Moors with five strangers wouldn’t normally be her idea of a good time, even if there is prize money to be won at the end of it, but she’s all out of options.
Joining her in this wild goose chase, being filmed for a TV show, are farmer Seb, whose marriage is creaking but who is desperate not to lose his family. Sheltered Ruth who needs an opportunity to show she can make her own decisions. Glamorous socialite Kanga, who has been living a lie. American Junior who has his own secret that has led him there. And last but not least, mysterious and brooding Mac, who Izzy can’t help but be drawn to.
As the fickleness of nature tests them all to their limits, this disparate group come together to face the challenge. But when Izzy finally tells them the truth that has brought her out on the Moors, will that be the end of their adventure, or the beginning of her future? Because what Izzy really needs is a place to call home, and someone to share it with could be even better…
This is up there with the best books I’ve read recently. I signed up to take part in the book tour without reading what the book was about. I saw Jane Lovering was the author and knew it would be good. I didn’t, however, know it would be this good! I absolutely, freaking adored it! I couldn’t put it down.
The setting was so different from anything I’ve ever read, I was sucked in to the whole ‘reality show’ in the Yorkshire moors, and I simply adored Izzy and her down to earth mentality. Not only is this a great rom-com with a difference, it also touches on some pretty sensitive issues too. I cannot recommend this highly enough. I hope you’ll go grab yourself a copy—and I really hope you’ll love it as much as I did.
Oh, and by the way, if you’re a movie producer, this is definitely one of those books that needs to be made into a film. Pronto!
