Summer Days on Sunflower Street by Rachel Griffiths #BookReview #IndieAuthor #5*

02. Hrt 175 centred

Roxie Walker has been married to Fletcher for over twenty years.

They live in a beautiful house on Sunflower Street, have a cute pug named Glenda and enjoy a comfortable lifestyle. However, Roxie has a feeling that something isn’t quite right…

Fletcher works hard and likes to relax on his days off, whether that’s playing a round of golf, watching a football match on TV, or pottering around in the garden. Recently, though, he’s finding it hard to switch off and he’s concerned that Roxie seems to be drifting away from him. He comes up with a plan to try to make things better, but the secrecy required to carry it out creates its own problems.

As summer descends upon Sunflower Street, with warmer days spent at the recently refurbished lido and lighter evenings whiled away, surrounded by roses and honeysuckle in their lovely garden, matters come to a head. It’s time for the truth to be revealed, and for grievances — both old and new — to be aired.

Will summer on Sunflower Street bring Roxie and Fletcher closer together or will it tear them apart?

This summer, enjoy an uplifting story about life, love, marriage and friendship from the author of The Cosy Cottage Café series.

A Fabulous, Sparkling Read!    stars 5

Another superb read from the pen (keyboard?) of a favourite author who is always guaranteed to leave me smiling.

Roxie and Fletcher are happily married and clearly adore each other. But with Fletcher working hard and Roxie looking after their home they don’t seem as close as they once were. Both of them seem aware of this – if only they could share their worries . . .

Following on from the first book, this time round we focus on another home on Sunflower Street. These are wonderful stand-alone reads, yet connected through friendships and location. What a happy street name! It automatically makes you think that all residents must have a permanent grin on their faces and yet, like all of us, they have their ups, downs, and doubts. This author does a fantastic job of making her characters come alive on the page and before long I had clear images of everyone – even Glenda! Beautifully written with her trademark warmth and compassion, this is one I heartily recommend – just perfect to curl up  – or stretch out – with. Another sparkling five star read and I can barely wait for more in this series.

My thanks to the author for my arc copy (I also have this one on pre-order); this is – as always – my honest, original, and unbiased review.
