Amazing Grace by Kim Nash – review.


She’s taking her life back, one step at a time…

Grace thought she had it all. Living in the beautiful village of Little Ollington, along with head teacher husband Mark and gorgeous son, Archie, she devoted herself to being the perfect mum and the perfect wife, her little family giving her everything she ever wanted.

Until that fateful day when she walked in on Mark kissing his secretary – and her perfect life fell apart.

Now she’s a single mum to Archie, trying to find her way in life and keep things together for his sake. Saturday nights consist of a Chinese takeaway eaten in front of the TV clad in greying pyjamas, and she can’t remember the last time she had a kiss from anyone aside from her dog, Becks…

Grace’s life needs a shake up – fast. So when gorgeous gardener Vinnie turns up on her doorstep, his twinkling eyes suggesting that he might be interested in more than just her conifers, she might just have found the answer to her prayers. But as Grace falls deeper for Vinnie, ten-year-old Archie fears that his mum finding love means she’ll never reconcile with the dad he loves.

So when ex-husband Mark begs her for another chance, telling her he’s changed from the man that broke her heart, Grace finds herself with an impossible dilemma. Should she take back Mark and reunite the family that Archie loves? Or risk it all for a new chance of happiness?

A funny, feel good romance about finding your own path and changing your life for the better – readers of Cathy Bramley, Jill Mansell and Josie Silver will love this uplifting read.

My thoughts:

What an uplifting novel! Grace’s character was so relatable to me and I’m sure everyone reading Amazing Grace will find something of themselves in her. She really is the woman next door!

I loved the humour that came with the main character, and Kim Nash certainly dished up lashings of it. I found myself tittering on many occasions as I sped through the pages, racing to the end to find out what would happen.

I totally rooted for Grace, wanting her and her young son, Archie, to find happiness. This is a tale of finding one’s self after having all of one’s self eradicated by a bad relationship. It is a tale of coming to terms with grief, and goes on to show how wonderful it is to keep our loved ones in our heart, long after they’re gone. Most of all, it is a witty, entertaining tale, that gallops to the end.

Amazing Grace! Amazing debut! May there be more where that came from.

I’d thoroughly recommend this book if you love a feel-good romantic comedy that may cause you shed a few tears; and when I last checked, it was only 99p on Kindle.

Thanks so much for reading. 💟💟💟
