Giveaway: Poppy Jenkins
Poppy Jenkins makes everyone smile. She’s the heart of Wells, a beautiful village in mid-Wales, leaving light and laughter in her wake. She has a doting family, an errant dog and a little sister with a nose for mischief. But she’s the only gay in the village and it’s a long time since she kissed a girl: the chance of romance in sleepy Wells is rarer than a barking sheep.
If she doesn’t think too hard, life is cosy, until a smart sports car barrels into town with the last woman Poppy wants to see behind the wheel. Beautiful Rosalyn Thorn was once Poppy’s high school BFF even though she was trouble. Then one day she abandoned Wells and Poppy without explanation. Now the highflier is back and bound to cause fresh havoc in the village and with Poppy’s heart; folk are not happy.
Wells needs to wake up to the 21st century and Rosalyn can help, but old prejudices die hard. If they can be friends it could be the chance to make everyone’s happy ever after. Couldn’t it?
I actually won this as a giveaway @jetgirl78 ran and it’d come so highly recommended from a bunch of different people that it apparently took me 16 months to read. I didn’t want to be disappointed or remove a book from a fairly short well-written f/f to-read pile. End result? My well-written f/f to-read pile is now a book shorter. 🙂
It was so sweet and the drama was very low stakes but felt like a lot because it meant so much to the characters, which is my favorite kind of romance. The main character was so good and likable and it was really just a cute tropey romcom.
Now that I’ve read it, I’m running this giveaway to share it too. You don’t have to reblog or like or follow, but you do have to be in the US. Just click on the link and follow the instructions to enter.
