Sunshine After the Rain by Daisy James #Review @daisyjamesbooks #WeekendBlitz @NeverlandBT

I am delighted to be taking part in the weekend blitz for Sunshine After the Rain by Daisy James. Today I will be sharing my review but first of all let's take a look at the description for the book...

A summer that changes everything…

Frazzled workaholic Evie Johnson has finally had enough! When she’s blamed for a publicity disaster at the art gallery she loves, she decides to flee the bright lights of London for the sun-drenched shores of Corfu and turn her life upside-down.
Under the shade of the olive trees, she picks up her dusty paintbrushes and begins to chase the dreams she had put aside for so long. But she never expected to bump into drop-dead-gorgeous Sam Bradbury – and certainly not whilst wrapped only in a towel!
A summer fling is the last thing Evie wanted but a few stolen kisses under the stars might just begin to change her mind…

After the events at the beginning of the book I had my fingers crossed that everything would work out for Evie. I loved getting to know her mainly because her character is so endearing. Then add in how accident prone she is and I couldn't help but like her even more. Sunshine After the Rain pretty much had me smiling all the way through with it's fun and giggle inducing plot. Sam is quite an intriguing character and to begin with I wasn't quite sure about him but as time goes on his character develops wonderfully.

Even though our summer is a bit of a washout this story easily managed to transport me to a sunny and gorgeous Corfu with some lovely descriptive writing from Daisy James. There was heavy rain outside while I read but I didn't mind at all. It was a pleasure to read in one go and be carried off on Evie's adventure. From meeting the locals and making friends right through to experiencing Evie's love of art.

Sunshine After the Rain is a heartwarming story that is guaranteed to brighten up your day. The pace was good and I loved the interactions between Evie and Sam. They were playful and fun especially the more they got to know one another. Both the story and the characters were engaging and it made for a delightful read.

Sunshine After the Rain is perfect to curl up with and relax!

Daisy James is a Yorkshire girl transplanted to the north east of England. She loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. Her husband and young son were willing samplers of her baking creations which were triple-tested for her debut novel, The Runaway Bridesmaid. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something pink and fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.
