Book Review – A village Affair by Julie Houston @JulieHouston2 @VickyJoss1 @Aria_Fiction #BookReview #BlogTour #contemporary

Many thanks to publisher Aria for my spot on this Blog Tour.

Ah, I often wished if life were a fiction. But not in the case of Cassie and her life.

Her love life was the most twisted thing I had read in recent times. First, her husband had an affair with her best friend, then came her mother who threw a shocker of a bomb about the next guy she fell in love with. This was Cassie’s journey post her marriage break-up.

My first book by author Julie Houston, the writing was delightful, the characters varied and exciting. Every chapter brought its own caper to light. That book was hopping. I had to admit, post breakup Cassie lived a fuller life, like being on a roller coaster.

The writing was soothing and kept the story alive. Cassie life was well depicted, giving me glimpses of her mother’s POV too. Humor and warm moments interspersed with the angry ones that I felt for the wanker of a husband and the so called best friend. The book pulled at my emotions even when I wanted to be side-lined.

The words had a sweet power to them, and Cassandra was a well developed protagonist with her own band of friends. Too bad, the best friend did not realize friends before men!! The story turned directions in the last section, and I had to read it with bated breath to get to the truth. Would Cassie get her love?

I downloaded the digital version of the book from Kindle Unlimited, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Cassie Beresford has recently landed her dream job as deputy head at her local, idyllic village primary school, Little Acorns. So, the last thing she needs is her husband of twenty years being ‘outed’ at a village charity auction – he has been having an affair with one of her closest friends.

As if that weren’t enough to cope with, Cassie suddenly finds herself catapulted into the head teacher position, and at the forefront of a fight to ward off developers determined to concrete over the beautiful landscape.

But through it all, the irresistible joy of her pupils, the reality of keeping her teenage children on the straight and narrow, her irrepressible family and friends, and the possibility of new love, mean what could have been the worst year ever, actually might be the best yet…

  1. Thank you so much, Shalini, for this fab review of A VILLAGE AFFAIR. It’s always lovely when bloggers take the time to read my books and write such super things. And, by the way, I’m with you, being a bit of a shopaholic myself. Give me a sale or a bargain especially if it involves boots, bags and books!! Thank you again xxxxx
