Synopsis

How far should you go to keep a secret?
No-one ever accused Sophie Campbell of being a coward. From caving trips to rooftop pranks, it appeared nothing could hold her back, especially once she landed a dream job promising travel all over the world.

But Sophie’s jet-setting lifestyle is not what it seems and she’s been spending more time in the quiet English village of Saffron Sweeting than she cares to admit. When her beloved Great Aunt Wol dies suddenly, Sophie loses one of the few people who truly know her. As friends, family and an old flame gather for the funeral, questions soon follow. Worse, Sophie finds herself increasingly attracted to the man most likely to expose her secrets. Can she manage to guard her past, yet finally follow her long-held dream?

Featuring both new and familiar characters, this stand-alone romantic comedy is set two years before Saving Saffron Sweeting. With side helpings of British tea, cake and wit, Secrets in the Sky explores how finding the courage to be yourself can be the toughest challenge of all.

 

Review

I received a copy of this book from CLP Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

I don’t always go for chick lit because I like my romance novels raw and dirty. However, every now and then, I find that I have a craving for clean romance, a bit of a comedy, and a story that’s not always about sex or angst or abuse. Secrets In The Sky is a book that will entertain you well without breaking your heart to pieces. Sure, there are sad scenes in the book, but they won’t frustrate you at all.

I always like a good book like this. I liked the romantic angle. I like the heroine’s character development and the journey she had. I think this is what makes the chick lit genre appealing. It’s not just about the romance. It’s also about a character’s growth. It’s a kind of book where you can look back to the first few pages and feel like you’ve come far, just as the main character has also done.

This is one book I will definitely recommend because it mirrors real life so much. It also shows us how one’s life is always full of people and that these people have different and important roles in one’s life. I truly enjoyed reading this book. Kudos to the author for creating such a heartwarming story.
