This morning I am sharing my first review of the day for the latest book in the Romantic Escapes Series – The Cosy Cottage in Ireland by Julie Caplin

My Review

I love reading books by this author and I couldn’t wait to pick up my copy and enjoy my trip to the Emerald Isle in the eight book in the Romantic Escapes series. I have loved being taken to so many fabulous destinations whilst reading these books.

This another wonderful story filled with a host of lovely and very varied characters. We meet Hannah almost straight away and she reveals how she is a stickler for playing it safe and hated to deviate from the routine she has set herself. When she decided to take a sabbatical to attend the cookery course this out of character decision then set off a chain reaction of Hannah feeling like she had a split personality.

I loved the exploration of Dublin with its vivid descriptions and the contrast when compared to Killorgally where the cookery course is held nestled in the countryside.

A story full of love and romance and the importance of family, that just makes you want to curl up on an autumn day with a hot chocolate at keep reading.

Book Blurb

Snuggle up in your favourite armchair and take a trip across the Irish sea for comfort food, cosy cottage nights and a heartwarming romance…

Talented lawyer Hannah Campbell wants a change in her workaholic Manchester life – so she books herself a place at the world-renowned Killorgally Cookery School in County Kerry. But on her first night In Ireland, sampling the delights of Dublin, Hannah can’t resist falling for the charms of handsome stranger Conor. It’s only when Hannah arrives at her postcard-pretty home at Killorgally for the next six weeks that she discovers what happens in Dublin doesn’t quite stay in Dublin…

Nestled amongst rolling green hills and breathtaking countryside, the cookery school throws Hannah and Conor together again–for better or worse.

Meet the Author

Julie Caplin announced at the age of ten that she planned to be a writer. Along the way she was diverted by the glamorous world of PR and worked on many luxury brands, taking journalists on press trips to places like Turin, Milan, Geneva, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam. This was rather fabulous training for writing novels as it provided her with the opportunity to eat amazing food, drink free alcohol, hone her writing skills on press releases and to research European cities for her books.

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.
