Escape to Wildflower Park with Part Three of a brand new four-part serial from bestselling author Bella Osborne.
Life’s not always a walk in the park…
When Anna is dumped by her fiancé, she moves in to her own place on the edge of the gorgeous Wildflower Park and pledges to stay off men and focus on her career, but a handsome new colleague seems to thwart her attempts at every turn. And when she receives an accidental text from a mystery man, could it be the new start she needs? Or someone she really shouldn’t be falling for?
Anna’s neighbour Sophie is a stressed-out mum-of-two with a third on the way. Her husband is a constant frustration, and their children are a regular source of newly-invented swear words and unidentifiable sticky surfaces.
Luckily, Anna and Sophie have each other – and Wildflower Park proves to be a sanctuary as they map out a path to find the happiness they both deserve…
Fantastically funny, this irresistibly heart-warming novel will charm fans of Milly Johnson and Jill Mansell.
This is Part 3 of the serialisation of Wildflower Park. I would definitely recommend reading these books in order as the story continues straight from where the previous part ended.
So we’re now over half way through the story! We have met the main characters, Anna and Sophie and we know what has happened in their lives up to now. As the story moves on, I finding myself loving both of these characters more and more! Anna is in a dilemma with what appears to be an abundance of men in her life! Liam, her ex, is trying his best to wheedle his way back into Anna’s good books, her mystery texter wants to meet and Hudson isn’t gay like she thought he was! Sophie (who still remains my favourite!) is having a crisis and is taking up residence in Anna’s spare room. Being heavily pregnant doesn’t really help in this crisis, and neither does Dave, Sophie’s husband! I have to admit though, I do like Dave and really do feel sorry for him…..he obviously has no clue what he’s even doing wrong!!
I cannot write a review though without mentioning Maurice the Cat! He really comes into his own in this book and I can just imagine him being a savvy big old boy who knows exactly what he wants and how to get it! I love how he comes and goes through the open window, until the cat flap appears, and I laughed my way through the part where everyone jumps up at the sound of the cat flap to give him praise, as this is exactly how I would be with my two cats!!
As its part of a four-parter, the book is short and sweet, absolutely perfect for getting through in an afternoon (which I did!!) Once again, it is left on a cliff hanger, and I can’t wait for the fourth and final part to find out what happens. It is a beautifully funny book, with plenty of laughs and lots of heart-warming moments. The writing is witty and sharp and I’m full of admiration (and a little bit of envy) of anyone who can write books that produce constant little chuckles all of the way through! Fabulous!!
Bella has been jotting down stories as far back as she can remember but decided that 2013 would be the year that she finished a full length novel.
In 2016, her debut novel, ‘It Started At Sunset Cottage’, was shortlisted for the Contemporary Romantic Novel of the Year and RNA Joan Hessayon New Writers Award.
Bella’s stories are about friendship, love and coping with what life throws at you. She likes to find the humour in the darker moments of life and weaves these into her stories. Her novels are often serialised in four parts ahead of the full book publication.
Bella believes that writing your own story really is the best fun ever, closely followed by talking, eating chocolate, drinking fizz and planning holidays.
She lives in The Midlands, UK with her lovely husband and wonderful daughter, who thankfully, both accept her as she is (with mad morning hair and a penchant for skipping).
