I downloaded this book when it was Doris Day’s birthday. I used to watch a lot of Doris movies when I was growing up and I could almost hear the songs in my head when I read the book. Besides, who can resist a title like that!
I read Chris Stovell’s previous book Turning the Tide a year or so ago and this book is a more confident work. There are no point of view issues here! Like Turning the Tide, this book evokes the sense of place beautifully with rural Wales and busy New York both painted with detail and style. The characters are well rounded and interesting. Coralie is delightful with her colourful fifties gear. Gethin is an alpha male character with just enough humour to be likable. The busybody secondary characters were brilliantly sour. The secondary storyline with Kitty and Adam was very sweet.
This is a fun story of love and rural village life. I enjoyed it.
