Finding Sarah by Wendy Lou Jones - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads
 
Review by Tanya

Sarah finds herself having to move house and start her life all over again in a small cottage in Lower Nutton after a stressful divorce from her husband, David, of 21 years. She has not got experience of working as she married young and was a stay at home mum to their two boys, Justin and Ben. Later she kept the house for her husband and there was no need for her to work. The move is hard and she is lucky when she starts a new job as a personal assistant to Maggie. Sarah’s turmoil deos not end there as there is the attraction between her and the vicar, Nick, who ideally would not be involved with a divorced woman. Other events are against their relationship and you wonder if she will ever be really happy.

I enjoyed seeing how Sarah became stronger and more confident through the book, however at times I desperately wanted to say to put herself first. I could not believe how amazing she was towards her ex husband when he needed her help, I do not think I could be so thoughtful and let it affect my new relationship.

Nick is the dreamy vicar of the village and is subject to lots of gossip from the villagers, especially as he has never been seen with a woman. How will the villagers react if he is involved with a divorced woman? Can he really give his heart to someone and forget his past?

One of my favourite characters of Finding Sarah was Maggie, she was a light relief in the book and her sense of humour often had me smiling. I found that the fact that she is disabled very interesting to me and it’s wonderful that there is such a positive disabled person in a book. She always seemed to know what was happening in the village and interferes to make sure that Sarah can become happy.

I highly recommend you to read Finding Sarah, as it is a book that will have you smiling and thinking while being infuriated with some of the characters as well. This is a great mix that will have you wanting to read to the end fast to see if what you want to happen actually happens. I am looking forward to reading the next book set in Nut Hill, it's a great series.
