About the Author
Jessica Redland is the author of nine novels, including The Secret to Happiness, which are all set around the fictional location of Whitsborough Bay. Inspired by her hometown of Scarborough she writes uplifting women’s fiction which has garnered many devoted fans.
This isn’t the first novel by Jessica Redland that I have read, so when I saw the book I was curious and ended up reading the synopsis and getting even more interested in reading this story.
As we follow Sam and her life, we get to meet other people, feel the friendship grow between her and Thomas, and learn more about Hedgehog Hollow. Of course, there are problems, obstacles, but life isn’t just flowers, and seeing the character development was fantastic.
This is a story with amazing characters that were relatable, because we all know people like these. And it had some drama, romance friendship and family, and a heartwarming story. The author explores lots of elements about life, and that I enjoy a story that is character based and makes me think about the community, about our own lives and relationships.
Plus, if that doesn’t convince you to give the book a chance, some character are animals. And I love when a story has animals, and not in a “bad things happen because of them”, but in a fun way, pet and farm animals.
Overall, it was a warm storytelling with friendship, kindness and love, that made me dream and feel all of the characters emotions as I was reading, page after page.
