I hope you are all doing well this lovely Tuesday. I just wanted to come here very quickly to share my review of this Historical fiction novel, before I go back to writing. It’s part of a series and I had the opportunity to read the previous books, and you can expect those reviews in the near future. Meanwhile, I will leave you guys with this one.
“Rainy Days for the Harpers Girls“, written by Rosie Clark, is a Historical Fiction book, in the Saga genre, book three of the Welcome To Harpers Emporium Series published by Boldwood Books.
I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, Rosie Clark and Boldwood Booksfor the eCopy of this book, via NetGalley, and for allowing me to join in the fun and being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Hard times ahead for the Harpers girls…
It is two years since Harpers opened in Oxford Street and Ben is planning to expand the premises.
Life is good for Sally and Ben as they look forward to their first child and hope for a prosperous future. Beth is settling into married life with Jack, gradually recovering from her aunt’s tragic death, though still unable to conceive a child.
New girls have joined Harpers and Marion, Janice and Becky all become a part of the daily life at the busy store. Rachel is undecided whether to marry a man she isn’t sure she can trust, while Minnie meets an old love.
The sun is shining in English streets but on the horizon dark clouds gather over Europe and war looms threatening bringing rainy days for the Harpers girls…

By now it wouldn’t be a surprise that I read and reviewed yet another historical novel, this one in the Saga genre.
I was thankful that I was able to read the previous books in the series before tackling this one and I may have found another author that I will add to my list to keep an eye out for more books. The fact that I read the series in order ended up being for the best. It was such an amazing journey.
Changes keep happening, the characters are taken on an emotional rollercoaster, and have to decided the new step in each moment and each event that takes place. And us, the readers, ended up going with them. Following these strong women on their paths, getting to know them even more, even in this third book.
As we get introduced to new characters, things keep getting exciting. It was as if I was part of the community, of this family. And since it’s the third book, I had some time to understand the amazing and loyal girls, the Harper girls.
We don’t just follow one person or couple, we follow a group of people through their lives and now, with new characters, and news, it was just felt like a new chapter in their lives and my reading journey. Something that may have been because I read book after book, but still, I felt truly emotional about every single one of those women and I just hope there is a forth book coming.
There is a sense of connection while reading this book, it may be because the setting was so realistic, or because it’s not as far back into the past as we may think. But I felt as if I was transported to that moment in time, right beside these characters, and living with them.
Overall, I liked this book a lot, as I did the previous, and I recommend you read it in other so you can fully connect with the story and the characters, as well as get to enjoy the series to it’s fullest potential.
