Those who don’t jump will never fly…

Come home to St Aidan and Periwinkle Cottage for a romance full of love, laughter and friends for life!
The beginning of the book with the skydive I read with much interest because this is my partner his passion. I immediately loved the way of writing with detail and a lovely way of telling things by this writer. Some time after the skydive, Edie her life will never be the same. To recover and picking her life back up, Edie is going to help her auntie Josie redecorate her home and starting fresh after losing her partner.
At the little Cornish village Edie has to find the courage to never give up and like Josie she has to find a new opportunity to live for. In every chapter Edie shares an epic moment with me. I can completely understand her tribulations because I do have experience with struggle to survive. Just like her I learned to be happy with small things and just being grateful for every day.
Instead of a tearjerker, this book is filled with beautiful people and amazing friendship and even love. The starting over is not always easy for Edie, but the novel has some hilarious scenes too. I have never read a book of this best-selling author but certainly will follow her from now.
Jane Linfoot is a best selling author, who lives in a muddy cottage, up a steep hill in Derbyshire, with her family, their pets, and an astonishing number of spiders. Although she loves seeing cow noses over the garden wall, she’s happy she can walk to a supermarket.
Jane grew up in North Yorkshire where she spent a lot of her childhood avoiding horizontal gales blowing off the sea, and wrote her first book by accident, while working as an architect, and renovating country houses. While she loves to write feelgood books that let readers escape, she’s always surprised to hear her stories make people laugh, admits to (occasionally) crying as she writes, and credits her characters for creating their own story lines.
Jane’s garden would be less brambly if she wasn’t on Facebook and Twitter so often. On days when she wants to be really scared, she rides a tandem.
Her latest books include a series of stand alone novels, based around a seaside wedding shop in Cornwall. Cupcakes and Confetti – The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea, Sequins and Snowflakes – Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop, and Bunting and Bouquets – Summer at the Little Wedding Shop, and most recently, The Little Cornish Kitchen. These are all published by Harper Impulse, an imprint of Harper Collins.
