When Lucy Bagshaw’s life falls apart she accepts her half-sister Juliet’s invitation to stay with her in a charming village in the beautiful Lake District. Lucy is expecting quaint cottages and cream teas, but instead finds that her sister is an aloof host, the weather is wet, windy and cold and her new boss, Alex Kincaid, is a disapproving widower who only hired her as a favour to Juliet. But despite their differences and with the help of quirky villagers, these hesitant rainy day sisters begin to forge a new understanding – and find in each other the love of family.
I love Kate Hewitt’s books, and Rainy Day Sisters is no exception. The setting of the village and the gradual relationship of the half sisters kept me entertained.
Kate’s books are not light-hearted, all are emotive and have a moral to the story. This one is full of secrets and I absolutely loved the weather theme, hence the title, it really added atmosphere to the tale.
The characters all have something to add and I loved getting to know them all. It is wonderfully descriptive and I read in one sitting, it was a rainy day and I loved that this added to the mood of the book.
Kate Hewitt is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. I usually enjoy thrillers and dislike slushy romance, but she is one I read when I need something different. She writes brilliantly and with feeling. She makes the reader feel and she fits the bill perfectly.
