I’m thrilled skinny to be dropping in here as part of the Second Helpings blog tour. A million thanks to Slitsreads for having me as a guest.
About Second Helpings
Stuart Collins’s life might as well have ended a year ago when his partner died in a car crash. Even Stuart’s widowed father has found new love with an old friend, Isabel Franklin, so why can’t Stuart be bothered to try?
Then he gets a phone call from Isabel’s son, Paul, who wants to check out whether or not Mr. Collins is good enough for his mother. During dinner together, though, they end up checking out each other. Trouble is, Paul’s got a boyfriend—or maybe he doesn’t, since the boyfriend’s supposedly giving Paul the push by ignoring him. Or maybe Paul just wants to have his cake and eat it too.
Honesty with each other is the only way to move forward. But maybe honesty with themselves is what they really need.
Thank you Riptide Publishing and Charlie Cochrane for a copy of the book.
This is going to be a shorty review. My 1st Charlie Cochrane book! Will no be my last.
I liked the story and I liked it’s delivery. Charlie’s words flowed rather poetically after the 1st 2 chapters.
I was hooked, and I couldn’t picture spending a Sunday afternoon and the cottage any other way.
Lying in the hammock, with a drink and the breeze and my ereader! Perfection!
I can state that I wished the book was a longer, and a little bit more in depth but I’m sure my next Charlie book will give me that!
