One year ago today Kim Nash released her debut novel Amazing Grace. To celebrate I am super excited to share my review with you again.
She’s taking her life back, one step at a time…
Grace thought she had it all. Living in the beautiful village of Little Ollington, along with head teacher husband Mark and gorgeous son, Archie, she devoted herself to being the perfect mum and the perfect wife, her little family giving her everything she ever wanted.
Until that fateful day when she walked in on Mark kissing his secretary – and her perfect life fell apart.
Now she’s a single mum to Archie, trying to find her way in life and keep things together for his sake. Saturday nights consist of a Chinese takeaway eaten in front of the TV clad in greying pyjamas, and she can’t remember the last time she had a kiss from anyone aside from her dog, Becks…
Grace’s life needs a shake up – fast. So when gorgeous gardener Vinnie turns up on her doorstep, his twinkling eyes suggesting that he might be interested in more than just her conifers, she might just have found the answer to her prayers. But as Grace falls deeper for Vinnie, ten-year-old Archie fears that his mum finding love means she’ll never reconcile with the dad he loves.
So when ex-husband Mark begs her for another chance, telling her he’s changed from the man that broke her heart, Grace finds herself with an impossible dilemma. Should she take back Mark and reunite the family that Archie loves? Or risk it all for a new chance of happiness?
A funny, feel good romance about finding your own path and changing your life for the better – readers of Cathy Bramley, Jill Mansell and Josie Silver will love this uplifting read.
First of all I have to say that I can’t believe this is a debut novel it read like Kim has been writing for years. Amazing Grace is so exceptionally fantastic, all you chick lit fans are going to love it because I certainly did. What can I say, but this book is not only absolutely amazing, it’s funny and heart melting. Kim must be the only person I know that can make me laugh and then make me cry in a matter of minutes. All in a good way of course taking me on a whirlwind of emotions.
In this story we follow single parent Grace on a journey to find happiness after years of being with Mark. A character that I just wanted to punch in the face! Then along comes Vinnie the hottie gardener…OMG ladies you are going to love him. Grace finds herself in a situation that she doesn’t know what to do for the best.
OMG what a page turner I devoured this in one sitting I simply couldn’t read it fast enough.
I bloody loved Grace she is definitely amazing. Being a single parent myself I could totally relate to her and also the fact that she doesn’t have her mom in her life to call when she needs some advice….I know that feeling all to well. Not only is Grace realistic but the whole story is.
Kim has an incredible talent of making you connect with the characters where I found myself routing for Grace and I also found myself screaming at her saying OMG woman what the hell are you doing! Talk about going through the motions. I love it when a story has that effect on me.
This is the best Romantic Comedy I have read in a long time and Kim wants to be really proud of herself. It is beautifully written story that will seriously melt your heart and will stay with me forever giving it all the stars
