Blog Tour: Sunshine and Sweet Peas in Nightingale Square by Heidi Swain

Today is my stop on the fantastic blog tour for Heidi Swain's latest novel, Sunshine and Sweet Peas in Nightingale Square. I had the pleasure of hearing Heidi talking about this story during the Spring Blogger Evening, so I am very happy to share my thoughts about it:

Title: Sunshine and Sweet Peas in Nightingale Square 
Author: Heidi Swain
Published: May 31st 2018 by Simon & Schuster

Blurb: The heart-warming new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author, perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Milly Johnson and Cathy Bramley

Kate is on the run from her almost-divorced husband who is determined to have her back, and she has found the perfect place to hide... a little cottage on Nightingale Square in Norwich, far away from her old life in London. But the residents of Nightingale Square don't take no for an answer, and Kate soon finds herself pulled into a friendship with Lisa, her bossy but lovely new neighbour.

Within a matter of days Kate is landed with the job of campaigning the council to turn the green into a community garden, meanwhile all the residents of Nightingale Square are horrified to discover that the Victorian mansion house on the other side of the square has been bought by developers. But when all hope is lost, the arrival of a handsome stranger is sure to turn things around! 

Heidi Swain is the perfect summer read - you'll want to find your own green space, stretch out in the sun and dive into life at Nightingale Square.

Review: Sunshine and Sweet Peas in Nightingale Square is such a warm and up-lifting summer story! Definitely perfect to get lost during a few hours in the sun. 

We follow Kate from her busy life in London to Norfolk, where she is planning to hide from everyone and forget about her failed marriage. But as soon as she moves to Nightingale Square, she is in for a quite a surprise, the residents of the square are like a little family and are determined to include her in all their comings and going. From that moment, Heidi Swain keeps us in our toes, with several unexpected twits and surprises in store for these characters. 

I really enjoyed reading about the sense of community in the square and how they all came together to defend their square and their space. Kate couldn't have landed at a better place and it was a great pleasure to get to meet this bunch of lovely people.

I also loved that there was this mystery about the history of the square going on too. I especially enjoyed reading about how residents of the square had lived there in the past and how it was related to the present story-line. And it was also great to catch with The Cherry Tree Cafe characters, as Kate is actually related to them. 

All in all, a very entertaining and up-lifting story with fantastic characters and lots of gardening tips!
