The Perfect Match
Katie Fforde

What is on the back:
Three years ago Bella Castle left her home town nursing a broken heart over Dominic Thane, the man she fell in love with but couldn’t have …

Now she’s made a new life for herself in the country, working as an estate agent.

Bella loves her job and she loves her boyfriend Nevil. But recently he’s been preoccupied, and she’s starting to question if his future hopes and dreams are a perfect match for hers.

And when Dominic turns up unexpectedly in search of his dream house, she begins to wonder if home is really where the heart is. But she’s over him, isn’t she?

My review:
First of all isn’t the cover just gorgeous!!!
I am often drawn to a book by its cover and when this book dropped on my door step (I was kindly sent an advance copy to review) I was so excited!

The story is about Bella, who has moved away from home to live with her Godmother Alice. Life is good for Bella, she has a job she loves and she is dating Nevil who also happens to be her boss.

Bella becomes good friends with Jane, and elderly lady living alone in a large house. Bella met her through the estate agents but instead of selling Jane’s house a friendship blossomed.

Bella’s life gets turned upside down when Dominic, Jane’s nephew and a character from Bella’s past, turns up out of the blue. This pulls at Bella’s heart as she re examines her relationship with Nevil. Unfortunately she didn’t need to look that hard!

The gentleness of this story is lovely. Katie has a great way of introducing characters and their relationships. Nothing was forced in this book. It was a delightful read. I love the way Katie brings relationship and love to all the characters and addressing age gaps proving that you don’t have to be young to fall in love.

I especially loved the descriptions of the gardens. It made me dream of the summer sitting in my garden appreciating the sunshine. Just a dream during these cold months.

This would be a “perfect” book to read on holiday or just relaxing on the sofa. Congratulations Katie on another fantastic book which I loved to read.
