I was sent this book via the Basically Books group in exchange for a review.

I was really looking forward to reading it, the synopsis was really long and I was soon to realise it actually told the whole story the rest in the book was padding!

The story was about a young girl, who escapes her over protective, not very nice Mother and goes to live with her Aunt, Daisy in a town 3 hours away. Emma, who previously had no social life and no friends, quickly falls in love and makes new friends. Emma is loving her new life and her new confidence, until Nicholas becomes ill with Cancer and they have a battle to fight together.

It was a little bit too padded out - I got to 45% through and realised that nothing had happened, apart from a lot of exchanges of feelings and cooking of family dinners. I just found this a little bit unrealistic and annoying. The book could have cut 100 pages and it wouldn't have lost any of the main elements of the story.

Thank you for the opportunity to read, unfortunately it wasn't for me.
