Today I am so excited to be sharing my review for the magical read – All You Need is Love by Jessica Redland

Today I am very excited to be joining the blog tour for this wonderful story by Jessica Redland, this is such a magical read and it totally stole my heart.

My Review

Jessica Redland has quickly become an author whose books I know will transport me into one of her amazing worlds. This story had a wonderful magical element to it, as soon as I read the blurb I couldn’t wait to pick it up and what a treat it was.

Jemma is a character that you would love having in your friendship group as she is so kind hearted and you know she would have your back. This was one of those books where once I started reading real life just kept getting in the way as I was so keen to keep reading. Jemma has been surrounded by teddy bears since childhood and learnt from her Mum who has been making and valuing teddy bears for as long as Jemma remembers.

Whilst reading this story it highlighted some real life issues and immersed you in a wonderful group of people who were all the type of friends that you need in your life when you need someone to have your back and be there when you need them the most.

A truly superb story that made me laugh and left me with eyes damp around the edges as you navigate love and loss. I love it when a story captures my heart and I just didn’t want to stop reading this magical story and would love to revisit these characters again. One of my favourite stories by this wonderful author and I have loved having the opportunity to read and share my review.

Book Blurb

When you’ve loved and lost, how do you find the strength to let love in again?

Jemma thinks she’s found the love of her life. Scott is everything she ever dreamed of and she can’t wait to begin the next stage of their life together. But just as she is heading for her happy ever after, a shock revelation shatters Jemma’s life as she knows it. Left to pick up the pieces, Jemma’s friends and family rally round to help her find the courage to move on.

Sam thinks he has his future all worked out. A thriving career, lovely home and an amazing fiancée. But when tragedy strikes, he finds himself alone, far from everyone he cares about. Did he do the right thing by running away and trying to rebuild the tatters of his life alone?

This is the story of Jemma and Sam. Two lost souls, desperately trying to find closure and happiness. When a chance meeting brings them together a friendship is formed, but the guards are up.

Will it finally be their turn for a happy ever after? Or will the secrets from their pasts prevent them from moving on?

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
