Wow – Heart Racing!
There’s No Place Like Home by Jane Lovering is a contemporary adventure novel that entertained me from the start.
The premise is a reality tv show shot in the wilds of the Yorkshire moors, with contestants on the hunt for evidence of a big cat. Financial reward beckons as the group of five and their leader channel their inner Bear Grylls! The bleak wet, winter landscape comes alive under the author’s masterful pen.
They are an eclectic mix of characters from various backgrounds who all want a share in the £250,000 prize money.
At first it is the money that binds them together but as they open up, friendships begin to form.
Everyone is hiding their true identities. As they spend time together, the shutters slowly begin to rise and the true identities shine through.
Everyone wants a place to call home. Sometimes home is not bricks and mortar but home is found in another person.
One character seems to be privy to the secrets of all. Her openness draws others to her, like moths to a flame.
I thoroughly enjoyed There’s No Place Like Home. I casually wandered through the book, joining the characters on a relaxing (for me), jaunt. I was an interested party observing the action, and then – wow! I became a part of the action with heart racing and instincts on high alert, wondering whether to flight or fight! I joined the characters in their abode. What an exciting crescendo.
This is a marvelous book that I can highly recommend – just don’t read it before bedtime – I can pretty much guarantee that you will not be in the mood for sleep!

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…
