Could you ever trust again the man who broke your heart?
Kate Fenton thought she’d got the answer to that question all neatly sewn up. Ever since she went to Saul Preston’s London art gallery, a month before their wedding, and found him with his assistant – who looked as if she was in the middle of a game of strip poker.
Three years later, she’s no longer so sure. Saul’s back in her life with a new proposition – to accompany him on a trip to Majorca as his interpreter. It’s an offer Kate can’t refuse, even though she knows she should. Successful and rich, he’s just the sort of client her translation company is trying to attract – even if he is her two-timing ex!
Saul’s never gone in for second chances. He’s never had the time, but he knows exactly what he’s doing when he suggests the trip to Kate. As gorgeous and infuriatingly easy to fall for as ever, he’s determined to rekindle their past. And he’s only got three days to do it…
If you are following me on social media, you would know that I have been snowed in lately; which, as any bookworm knows, is a prime opportunity for some reading.
As such, when the opportunity to review “True Colours” by Elly Redding came up, I was more than happy to oblige.
“True Colours” is a second chance romance that follows Kate Fenton and her ex-fiancee Saul as they manage to navigate a business trip to the Spanish paradise, Majorca together.
I loved this book. The author had my interest from page one.
Despite finding Kate annoying at times. I believed that the characters were delightfully flawed and well-written. I found myself feeling sorry for Saul; it wasn’t hard to imagine his frustration at times.
As for the plot, I imagine that many readers will be able to predict the outcome. However, that is not always a bad thing, especially in this particular genre. Personally, I find that it is nice to turn to a book such as this for the airy story just for a break from reality.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend “True Colours” to fellow Romance readers.
In closing, I would love to commend Elly Redding on a wonderful debut novel. I will be keeping an eye open for her future works.
Thank you to Elly Redding and Brook Cottage Books for the opportunity to review this novel.
‘True Colours’ – Winner of The Festival of Romance’s New Talent Award 2014
From award-winning author Elly Redding comes a fresh, effervescent, passionate romance that reunites Kate, a London career girl, with Saul, her seriously successful, rich and gorgeous, ex-fiancé. He’s already broken her heart once, so maybe accepting his business proposition isn’t such a good idea. But sometimes decisions just aren’t that easy. As the chemistry between them bubbles with renewed vigour, Kate is sorely tempted. Can a leopard really change its spots – or is she just deceiving herself, with the man who broke her heart?
“A wonderfully warm romance, with lots of emotion and passion, and a generous sprinkling of delicious wit. I loved this story!” – Joanne Walsh, author
Available in Kindle and Paperback!
