Until The Carousel Stops Turning
The Little Vintage Carousel By The Sea by Jaimie Admans is the most delightful feel-good contemporary romance. It warmed my heart, soothed my soul and left me smiling and feeling good.
The characters are a wonderful mix and all well drawn. I loved the older couple who have no filter on their mouth so we hear all about their bladder problems! The leading lady’s Mum is not afraid to meddle and says what she thinks. The two lead characters and both vulnerable but begin to trust again. Their dialogue is both witty and charming.
Set mainly in a seaside town in North Yorkshire, the reader is in for a real treat. It is a place where problems are solved with ice cream and your business is everyone else’s! There is a warm welcome that you do not get in the anonymity that is London.
There is the theme of restoration – not just of an old carousel but of lives too. The seaside town is a place where hurt souls can begin to live again.
A hundred year old legend entertains both the characters and the reader as we discover if true love really does exist.
This is my first book by Jaimie Admans and I loved it. I want to read more, more, more. She writes with a zest for life that is infectious. This book has left me feeling good about love, life and the inherent goodness of people.
