Book Review: Return to Bluebell Hill by Rebecca Pugh

Title: Return to Bluebell Hill

It is so lovely when an author's dreams come true, so I was thrilled when I heard that Rebecca had got a book deal. Now I will just point out and say that my review has in no way been influenced by my like for Rebecca. This is an honest review and I know it would not be fair to be anything but, so now that's out the way, on to my review.

When I first started reading Return to Bluebell Hill, what struck me first was how brilliant the writing was. Rebecca just managed to describe everything just so and it was just so easy to quickly get lost in the story.

Rebecca has developed a wonderful main character Jessica, who literally has my dream job, she works in marketing in a publishing house. Jessica deals with a lot in this story and I was particularly keen to find out why she had left her home so suddenly when she was just 18. Now ten years later she is back clearing out her parents beautiful home that never really felt like home. Despite the emotions and the heartache that Jessica is going through, Rebecca has created a really wonderful setting for Bluebell Hill. I honestly wish it was a real place that I could escape to and sit outside and have a cup of tea on the lovely porch of Bluebell House.

The only things that I would have liked to have been explored further were more about Jessica's parents and her past as did still have a few questions.

However this was still a really lovely, lighthearted read, that with Becca's engaging writing style you can easily forget the outside world for a bit.
