Love Nest by Julia Llewellyn

Grace is being forced to sell her beloved childhood home — but will love in the shape of the surveyor who comes to assess her property turn her life around? And what of Karen, whose husband is desperate to buy Grace's countryside home? She's a city girl with no desire to move out...

Lives and loves intertwine in a property chain like no other, but who will find a way home to the Love Nest?

MY REVIEW

Love Nest is filled with lots of interesting characters, many of whom are trying to sell a house, buy a house, or profit from the housing market as a realtor. A wild and crazy collection of people, each with their own story, and their lives somehow become intertwined.

Truth be told, I found this book very hard to get into. There were so many characters, and the whole thing seemed rather disjointed to me. Even after reading the first half of the book, I still didn't feel a connection to any of the characters.

There are some rave reviews for this book, but overall I was disappointed. I guess we can't love them all, can we?

Thank you to Penguin Group Canada for a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review.
