Thanks to NetGalley and Avon Books for letting me read this book prior to its publication. My opinion is 100% honest, unbiased, and my own.
The publisher contacted me to offer me a copy of this book, since I had already read and reviewed another of this author’s books. I’m not a huge fan of romance or women’s fiction, but I have to say that Sue Moorcroft’s books are perfect to empty your mind, relax at the beach, and escape to another place. They are kind, feel-good books, and I am glad I found this author.
A Home in the Sun is a story about loss, about self-discovery, and about figuring out who we are in the big scheme of things. It’s being quite interesting to follow Judith around, both in Malta and in England, and follow her thoughts while she processes her losses and accepts what she can gain with that acceptance. Although the topics may seem quite heavy, it’s an easy read, the tone gets quite optimistic, and it ends up putting a smile on your face. Sometimes I just wanted to shake Judith and slap her silly, but in the end we get to understand the character and her motivations. It’s a good journey.
I loved the settings for this story. I have never been in Malta, but reading this book takes you on a tour of Sliema and it makes you feel like you can see everything quite vividly in your mind. And the small town in England sounds so quaint that you just want to pack your suitcases and go there for a visit.
So overall, a very interesting book, an easy read to enjoy during the summer vacation, and I look forward to read more books by this author.
So, for all of that, I give this book… 4 TEA CUPS!
