Book Review - Starting Over by Sue Moorcroft

Starting Over by Sue Moorcroft (buy me)

New home, new friends, new love. Can starting over be that simple? Tess Riddell reckons her beloved Freelander is more reliable than any man - especially her ex-fiance, Olly Gray. She's moving on from her old life and into the perfect cottage in the country. Miles Rattenbury's passions - Old cars and new women! Romance - He's into fun rather than commitment. When Tess crashes the Freelander into his breakdown truck, they find that they're nearly neighbours - yet worlds apart. Despite her overprotective parents and a suddenly attentive Olly, she discovers the joys of village life and even forms an unlikely friendship with Miles. Then, just as their relationship develops into something deeper, an old flame comes looking for him ...Is their love strong enough to overcome the past? Or will it take more than either of them is prepared to give?

My Review

Sue Moorcroft has written an outstanding novel that has over powered me with love. Its not very often I pick up Adult Fiction and when I do its not normally Chick Lit. I love my paranormal and historical Fiction, but when it comes to chick lit I'm more for anything YA. So to read something that's so gripping from the start left me dumb struck and in awe. Sue takes us on a journey of love, mistakes and bad relationships...and I found myself engaged from the very first page.

Sue write's the characters with such passion that they vibrate off the page and once you hold on you can't let go! Miles a.k.a Ratty is that 'guy' you know the one that makes the book, he pulled on my heart strings and made it race with his bad boy vibes. While Tess had me constantly rooting for her I formed a unmistakable love for this women, no matter if she was wrong or right she pulled me along with her for the ride.

I would definitely recommend this book as it is an unmissable read and I must admitt I'm eager to start the second book I received for review written by her All That Mullarkey.
