There’s No Place Like Home
Isabel, Izzy to her friends, has got nothing left to lose when she makes the bravest decision of her life. A month living under canvas on the Yorkshire Moors with five strangers wouldn’t normally be her idea of a good time, even if there is prize money to be won at the end of it, but she’s all out of options.
Joining her in this wild goose chase, being filmed for a TV show, are farmer Seb, whose marriage is creaking but who is desperate not to lose his family. Sheltered Ruth who needs an opportunity to show she can make her own decisions. Glamorous socialite Kanga, who has been living a lie. American Junior who has his own secret that has led him there. And last but not least, mysterious and brooding Mac, who Izzy can’t help but be drawn to.
As the fickleness of nature tests them all to their limits, this disparate group come together to face the challenge. But when Izzy finally tells them the truth that has brought her out on the Moors, will that be the end of their adventure, or the beginning of her future? Because what Izzy really needs is a place to call home, and someone to share it with could be even better.

I enjoyed this even more than I expected to, that means for me I expected to enjoy this but I really really enjoyed it, this was such a wonderful read, but gave more than I was expecting. This isn’t just a romcom, it’s so much more, don’t worry there is plenty of humour and romance, just that it’s focused on life , what truly makes a home, family, friendships, people you love and in the classic lyrics of The Stones ‘We don’t always get what we want, but if you try sometimes, well, you might find you get what you need’
I loved the setting of the Yorkshire Moors, the detailed and gorgeous descriptions brought it to life fully and I felt like I was back there myself, it was definitely an additional character in the story. Speaking of which, the characters are such a great mix, each one so different and definitely just like the mix of unique personalities you would see in a reality TV show (not that I watch them to be honest, I like I’m a Celeb but mainly for Ant and Dec) You have your loud , opinionated, influencer, brooding characters with secrets, mystery and lots of gossip/ reveals, just like reality TV.
This is an addictive book to read and you have to make yourself stop at times, you know because work and bedtime are sadly required, but ifit weren’t for that I would have happily kept on reading. Overall, just the story itself is fantastic, full of twists and turns, emotional and so heartwarming. I loved it and I think most people who have a heart will too.
