This week on #bookclub we have a cracking review from our good friend Lara who not only runs her own blog but is also part of the Hillingdon Libraries Dream Team!

Here she reviews Practice Makes Perfect by Penny Parkes.

9781471153068 (3)Practice Makes Perfect

This book is such an enjoyable read!

I love feel-good books with substance and Penny Parkes has proved that she really knows what she’s writing about, with her writing style, medical terms and treatments. This is a village story with romance, rather than a romance fitted around a village.

The characters were great, really believable, they all had their own stories and background, life experience. Holly and Taffy’s new relationship, balancing work and very active twins was hard and realistic. I adored to see the couple both at work and at home, as you could really see that they are made to measure and it was so visible that Taffy loves Holly and her family above all.

Practice Makes Perfect was fabulously light-hearted and I finished reading it with a warm feeling. I adored the writing style and characters. It was full with drama,  conflict, twists and turns through the entire narrative and it was easy to completely lose yourself in the story while reading it. It also dealt with some important issues in sensitive and  comfortable ways. I really enjoyed this book – it had all you need in a good, engaging story. Highly recommended!
