A Jersey Kiss - Georgina Troy

A Jersey Kiss Blog Tour:
Publication Date: 16th August 2013
Green Shutter Books


Living in the 'sunny isle' it's hard not to fall in love and even though Bea Phillips is still reeling from a nasty divorce, the loss of her beloved god-mother and inheriting a legacy that includes something mysterious no one seems able to locate, she still has to find a way to fight a court case that threatens to take away everything she owns. The last thing Bea needs is a distraction in the form of surly builder Luke, or old flame Tom.

Will Bea find a way to keep her dream home and maybe fall in love?

And what exactly is, ‘A Jersey Kiss?'

My Review:

4* out of 5*

Bea is left broken hearted when her grandmother passes away, she had been like a mother to her, supporting her through thick and thin even when her marriage broke down; Annabel stood by her. When Annabel died, she left Bea her house as well as The Jersey Kiss, but no one seems to know what The Jersey Kiss is....

This is a story that takes you on a journey, trying to discover The Jersey  Kiss; as well as trying to sort out a nasty divorce, Simon insists he is entitled to half of Annabel's house as they were together when Bea inherited it. And what story would be complete without a love interest? Bea develops a new love interest to make matters even worse! This has just come at the wrong time, but perhaps its what she needs?

The story had brilliant characters in it, and they are all developed well. I love the fact we know so much about the other characters and get to read about their life's too. Georgina Troy has managed to develop characters that you have a connection with and passion for them. You hate Simon and you are desperate for Bea to sort things out as she is such a likeable character. 

This story is about friendships,  coping and being a strong independent woman. Bea was a likable character and she was developed well, I loved all the different genres within this book, mystery, romance and drama; I can not wait to see what Georgina Troy brings out next!

I love books set abroad as I have a real interest in travel. Jersey is a place I have never been to but after reading about idyllic settings and beautiful surroundings; this is a place I wish to visit in the future.  

About Georgina Troy:

Georgina Troy lives in Jersey near the sea - well, most people do in an island only 9 x 5 miles. She's always wanted to write and being an impossible romantic is always falling in love with heroes both real (hopefully), in fiction (definitely) and those of her own creation (absolutely). 

She's now written two romantic novels based in Jersey, A Jersey Kiss and A Jersey Affair.
