Sometimes help comes from the most unlikely places …
Living in a small village like Hibberton, it’s expected that your neighbours help you in a time of need. But when Andrea Kelly’s house burns down, taking all her earthly possessions with it, it’s the distant and aloof Doctor David Adams – the person she would least expect – who opens his door not just to her, but to her three kids and slightly dotty elderly mother as well.
Andrea needs all the help she can get, dealing with aftermath of the fire and in the suspicious absence of her fiancé, Jonathan. But, as she gets to know David and his troubled son, Jake, she begins to realise that maybe they need her help as much as she needs theirs …
Book Review ~ ‘Learning to Love’ by Sheryl Browne ~ 5 Stars!
Addictive, heartfelt, romantic; Learning to Love has all the elements of a perfect feel-good romance. Author Sheryl Browne has aced it again.
Learning to Love was a rollercoaster of a story, I experienced so many emotions from the brilliantly drawn out supporting characters, as well as Andrea and David, that I became so invested in the lives and happiness of the inhabitants of Hibberton village.
Andrea and David didn’t get off to the best start, but it was this tension that made their relationship so much fun to watch grow. There were twists and turns and ups and downs, but witnessing them grow as people and parents because of their friendship was so great to see. The stresses of Andrea’s everyday life of juggling two teenage children, a toddler, and an elderly mother and a emotionally withdrawing fiancé was written to a T.
The children were my favourite characters. I loved how realistically they were portrayed, their sniping, their moodiness, their stubborness, but also in how they coped with pain and uncertainty. Sophie’s heartbreak at their dog being missing after the fire really resonated with me, and I loved her for her hope and loyalty.
A gorgeous story, with a mystery ravelling throughout Learning to Love is a fantastic, thrilling read with characters you’ll learn to love and those you’ll yearn to hate (even though you can’t!)
