[Katie Fforde] Ç Second Thyme Around [managers PDF] Ebook Epub Download ☆ i should change my crummy chick lit tag, because i don t actually find chick lit to be crummy across the board i actually really enjoy it when i am in need of something fun frothy between the heavier doses of non fiction to which i subject myself this particular dose of chick lit, however, wasn t particularly to my tastes.
the plot stars perdita, a 29 year old organic gardener who supplies a few local restaurants a health farm, which is a british ism that i don t understand at first i thought it was a rehab center, then i thought maybe it was a spa it doesn t really matter, it s not especially relevant to the plot perdita s little house backs on to the land that is owned by her good friend kitty, an elderly wealthy lady who happens to be perdita s mother s godmother perdita s parents are world travelers are never around, so perdita spends most of her quality time When I drive, I like to listen to NPR radio or audio books that I don t have to think too much about You know the ones that I won t want to go back and savor the words, re reading a particular passage to marvel at how it was crafted or what it said I usually pick books that are cozy mysteries thrillers make me speed or some of the lighter, whimsical rather than whimsicle, as used on www.
com, one of my other online indulgences , sometimes even grabbing something that could fit as chick lit or the dreaded women s fiction Note I also have been known to listen to audio books for big, heavy books that would be awkward to hold, or books that I haven t been able to get into when reading, but that are highly recommended Sometimes a good reader can get For Years, Things Have Run Quite Smoothly For Perdita And Her Organic Gardening Business So What If Her Hair Needs A Complete Overhaul, Her Sweater Has Holes Than Swiss Cheese, And There S No Hope Of A Boyfriend On The Horizon The Last Thing Perdita Wants Is A Meddlesome Man In Her Life But She S About To Get One, In The Form Of Her Completely Infuriating Ex Husband, LucasLucas In Disagreeable, Curt, Arrogant, And Smolderingly Gorgeous He S Also The New Chef At Grantly House, Perdita S Number One Customer Worse, Mr Grantly Has The Insane Idea Of Starting A Television Cooking Show That Will Put Lucas And Perdita Together As The Gourmet And The Gardener Now, Things Are Heating Up In The Kitchen And Elsewhere With The Bright Lights Blazing And Old Feelings Stirring The Pot, It Could Be A Recipe For Disasteror Absolute Delight I really liked this, though you should be aware that this book deals with the illness view spoiler and eventual death hide spoiler What a dispoointment this book was I am not a fan of chick lit apart from very few authors and Katie Fforde is the foremost She always made me feel good and till now, I closed her books with a smile on my face, they were the equivalent of the grownup s fairytale But in this book she tried to tackle serious subjects and situations and it just can t fly Transient, ischaemic attacks, strokes, pedpans etc are not the foundation for a novel to help one escape, because that what KF s novels are, the door to a brighter, sunnier, ideal and utopic land where good things happen in surroundings that make us dream So, I am sorry but this was a sore disappointment.
I like it a lot, but don t understand what the auther has with angry men This is the second book I ve read of Fforde and agan, a man that s hot, super sexy and always fighting What s the deal Oh I keep going back for ah I get it now Duh.
Wasn t expecting especially much from this Katie Fforde Generally I enjoy reading her books while they re in my hands, but then they fly completely out of my head the second I put them down Thyme Out, though, I really enjoyed and I think I ll think about for a lot longer Sure, there s the usual romance plotline involving Perdita and her ex husband Lucas, but what really got me involved in this story was the relationship between Perdita and her elderly neighbour Kitty It gave a lot depth and emotional connection to the book than a simple romance would have It actually made me cry towards the end of the book Definitely worth a read.
This is my favorite Katie Fforde book and one of my all time favorite romance novels I re read it when I need to cheer myself up with a happy ending.
A light, easy read, but not up to Katie Fforde s usual standards of good sense The plot skipped along nicely, and I very much enjoyed the depiction of the relationship between the protagonist, Perdita, and her elderly friend and former guardian, Kitty However, the romantic thread never gelled for me Lucas, Perdita s ex husband, has re entered her life, and she is enormously attracted to him why Handsome and temperamental He was that in their first marriage, and they were problems than features He s added some kindness to his flaws, but he s still a belligerent, pushy, demanding man.
That conversation in which he suggests she shares the blame for the demise of their marriage, in that she was too passive and didn t make him behave No She s your wife, not your mother If monogamy is your agreement, then to reneg on the agreement is your choice, and you own it,
