It’s been my pleasure to meet lovely Cathy Bramley on several occasions, but I’m ashamed to say she hasn’t featured on Linda’s Book Bag for far too long. Consequently I’m thrilled that my latest online My Weekly review is of Cathy’s latest book Merrily Ever After.
Published by Orion on 13th October 2022, Merrily Ever After is available for purchase through the links here.
Merrily Ever After
In a picturesque town in Derbyshire, Merry has always wanted a family to spend Christmas with, and this year her dream comes true as she says ‘I do’ to father-of-two Cole. But as she juggles worries about her business, last-minute wedding planning and the two new children in her life, Merry is stretched to breaking point.
Meanwhile, only a few miles away, Emily is desperately waiting for the New Year to begin. Her father Ray’s dementia is worsening, and she’s struggling to care for him alone while holding down a job. When Ray moves into a residential home, she discovers a photograph in his belongings that has the potential to change everything .
As shocking secrets from Ray’s past finally come to light, will this Christmas make or break Emily and Merry?
My Review of Merrily Ever After
My full review of Merrily Ever After can be found on the My Weekly website here.
However, what I can say here is that Merrily Ever After is a wonderful, heart-felt exploration of love and belonging that I thought was just lovely.
