It’s our turn for The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club blog tour! I’ve been excited about this story for quite a while now, and as i’ve not had chance to read the novel for you, i’ve requested some wise words from the author herself! Keep reading to find out why Lynsey James ‘wrote a series’!
I’ve had a few people ask me what made me want to turn The Broken Hearts Book Club into a series. The answer isn’t as straightforward as ‘because I wanted to’ or ‘I thought it’d be a good idea’. By the time I finished writing The Broken Hearts Book Club, I felt like the setting of Luna Bay in particular had so much more to give. I’d sort of left the thread of a story in The Broken Hearts Book Club- Derek’s secret daughter- and I thought that’d make a pretty good book on its own. After a lot of dreaming, planning and researching (watching back-to-back episodes of Pretty Little Liars totally counts as research), The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club was born!
I’m not entirely sure which exact element of Luna Bay drew me to write more about it. I think I just loved the idea of all these lovely stories taking place in the one village, and all being linked by some recurring characters. Villages are thriving communities
with lots of interwoven stories and I really wanted to create that feeling with my Luna Bay stories. The final book in the series, The Silver Bells Christmas Pantomime, will include characters from the first and second books, just as Sunflower Cottage contains characters from The Broken Hearts Book Club. I’m so excited for people to be able to read the complete series!
If you’re still not sure whether to pick up a copy for yourself, the summary might just push you in to it:
Emily Reed is having a bad day. Her mother has just dropped a devastating bombshell—the dad she’s known and loved for twenty-five years isn’t her biological father!
Desperately in need of answers, Emily heads to Luna Bay covering her personal quest up as a work trip to Sunflower Cottage B&B.
Setting up the ‘Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club’ should be a great way to meet the locals and maybe even find out who her father is. The only problem is brooding and insanely gorgeous, Noah, who is determined to make Emily’s stay perfectly uncomfortable.
Discovering the truth after all these years was never going to be simple, but Emily will stop at nothing to uncover her past… even if her heart is getting in the way!
The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast club is available now on Kindle so get yourself over to Amazon if you want a copy of this perfect chick-lit novel for a summer read. It would be the perfect addition to a picnic in the park on a sunny day!
