A big welcome to my turn on the final day of the blog tour for New Beginnings for Bryony Bennett by Katy Lilley.
New Beginnings was published on 24th May 2018 by Manatee Books.
When Bryony Bennett’s godmother dies and leaves her a huge inheritance, Bryony jumps at the chance to get away from it all and start again.
She packs up her life and moves into the (almost) idyllic Cliff Cottage…only to find that starting over is never quite as simple as you imagine.
Faced with grumpy neighbours, hostile locals and more than her fair share of disasters, Bryony embarks on a mission to make sure her new life is everything she wants it to be…but will she ever win over the locals and truly be happy in her new life?

Thank you to Tracy Fenton and the publisher for issuing me with my review copy of the book and for asking me to participate on the blog tour.
I thoroughly enjoyed delving into the life of Bryony Bennett as she ups sticks and moves from London to Devon. Probably something that most people have wanted to do in their lifetime – helped by a sizeable and unexpected inheritance from her beloved Godmother!
Bryony is such a loveable character you can’t help but get swept along with her and the brilliant sounding Mop her dog as she battles her way through everyday life in rural Devon. Although the locals (well some of them) aren’t keen on an interloper, she is determined to make the best of things and win them over, either with gusto or her sarcastic put downs! Maddie, Lottie and Dario are just a few characters that she meets along the way….. You will have to read on to discover more about them!
The chemistry she has with the other characters is entertaining and really does make you smile and laugh as she is determined to settle in the lovely Devon village.
Kate Lilley has written a lovely, entertaining book here and I dearly hope we get to hear more from Bryony as I think as a character there is a lot more we can hear about! The characters are well written and add to the already lovely storyline.
I absolutely loved my time in Devon with Bryony and her motley crew of animals and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough in this easy to read story.
Lovely and lighthearted – perfect holiday reading!
