When I started reading High Blue Sky I didn’t realize that it was a part of a trilogy, so I felt there was something that I had missed at the start, but then the story quickly had me engrossed.
What would you sacrifice to be with the person you love?
Summer has arrived and it’s over a year since strangers Abigail and Edward bought Winfield Hall at auction and restored it together. Now, two new tenants are about to join them at their beautiful Georgian home.
Workaholic Harry Freeman has forgotten what it is to relax so when he meets healer, Aura Arden, and learns to meditate with her, he can’t believe how good he feels and he soon finds himself falling for her. But, with her bare feet and crystal beads, Aura’s not a big hit with Harry’s old-fashioned parents, and he finds himself torn between the people he loves most in the world.
It isn’t just Harry and Aura finding love. Summer has woven its spell over Edward and his brother Oscar, and both are making a play for Abi. But Abi isn’t happy at having to choose between these two very different men and, when Oscar’s behavior spirals out of control, she realizes that some decisions can have devastating consequences.
High Blue Sky is the second novel in the heart-warming trilogy from the bestselling author of The Rose Girls and The Book Lovers series.
My Review of High Blue Sky
Abigail and Edward who bought Winfield Hall at auction and restored it together are now looking for tenants. Edward’s tenant, Harry is an advertising man whose work consumes him. But Abigail is looking for a fellow artist who she can support by charging a nominal rent for her flat. When Aura, who teaches yoga and works with crystals, shows up, Abigail knows she has found her tenant.
The story follows the relationship of Edward and Abigail both of who have siblings that are a trial to them. When Edward’s brother shows a romantic interest in Abigail, she decides to throw caution to the wind and starts to date him despite Edward’s warning. Will Edward and Abigail’s tentative friendship be affected by this?
Meanwhile, Harry and Aura meet each other. Aura shows Harry how to relax and he soon finds that he’s drawn to her. However, introducing her to his parents causes all sorts of problems. An added complication is Aura’s brother showing up after serving a jail term. Will they be able to find love and have a relationship?
Loved the story and the characters are very well etched by the author. This is a story of being open to people, learning to understand what we don’t know and most of all following our hearts to find love.
I’m looking forward to catching up on book 1 and book 3 of this trilogy.
