Starting OverStarting Over by Sue Moorcroft

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Starting Over is truly delicious escapism, yet touches on familiar life and love crises experienced by woman or man alike. Oh, and what a man! A hero, absolutely, but a flawed one, who never pretends to be anything but what he is, you simply cannot help but love Miles Arnott-Rattenbury, affectionately know as “Ratty”. A man who, once he sets his sights on something…or someone, single-mindedly, determinedly; unconventionally, goes for it. And when Ratty gives up his heart, he gives all of it. Sigh… How could a man like that not fall in love with a vulnerable, pretty, feisty, strong, independent woman like his “Princess” Tess? And yes, she is all of those. A gorgeous gamut of emotions that make her human.

The book deals with those thorny parent issues. They struggle to deal with legacies of loves past… It is simply a heart-warming, emotionally rewarding read. Giving nothing away, the ending is perfect! My eyes filled up on one page, I was shouting, No! on the next, Yesss! on the next, a nail-biting, Ooooh God! on another. I finished this novel with a huge lump in my throat. Loved it. Pure Choc Lit. Well done, Sue Moorcroft.

Your blog and website are awesome! What a cute/fun design! And, boy do I know about Starting Over! Although, this sounds a bit different than the phrase implies!

What a fab site! You sounded such a laugh after the message you left on my blog and clearly you are!
I'm off to check out your other site now. Chuffed to bits to find another Brit blogger with a sense of humour.
Warm (very warm at the moment) wishes
