About The Book

Step across the cobblestones, pull back the curtains and peek behind the doors in the second instalment of The Hope Street Series. Catch up with old friends and fall in love with new ones in a story of friendship, second chances and new beginnings.
Livvy has no choice but to return to Hope Street, the childhood home she left over twenty years ago. Along with her sixteen-year-old daughter, Pip, she turns up on the doorstep, hoping for forgiveness from her sister.
Hannah thought she’d never see Livvy again. She’s overwhelmed with emotion but locks away her real feelings. How could Livvy stay away without any contact? And why has she come back now?
It isn’t long before the charm of the market town of Somerley begins to work its magic. Hannah is opening a book shop in the square, adjoining The Coffee Stop, and Livvy’s offer to help out brings the sisters closer together.
But when someone from Livvy’s past arrives unannounced too, he threatens everything she’s built up since her return. Can Livvy convince her sister, and her new friends, that her intentions to return were good ones? Or will her dreams of settling down and being happy again become nothing but a closed book?


My Thoughts

Returning home after 20 years is never an easy decision; the main question is always, how the family would react? Will they be able to accept and forget me?
This is the story of two sisters, Livvy and Hannah, they were good friends in the past, now they are estranged, will they solve their problems and become a family again?
This is the second book of the Hope Street Series, you can read it as standalone, the characters of the previous book have a special part on this story, but don’t worry you will not feel lost, the story is warm and delightful, you’ll want to read the previous book of the series, I can assure you.
I always love a book that transports you to the core of the story, it makes you feel warm and smiley inside, the perfect story that keeps popping in your mind in the moments of need. The characters felt real and believable, someone that you can know or meet on the street.
There’s a little bit of mystery on the story, the motive why Livvy left and the secrets that will be revealed when the truth will comes out. Of course I have to admit that I was intrigued with the story of this book and the knowledge that there was a bookshop involved in it! Let’s admit it, I am a book addict! 😉
