Today is my stop on the blog tour for The Secret – Violet’s Story. Let me know what you think!
It’s been two years since glamorous and ambitious Violet Smith fell head-over-heels in love with blacksmith Jimby Fairfax, and moved back home to the North Yorkshire village of Lytell Stangdale to be with him.
Life couldn’t get much sweeter. Their romance is blooming and Romantique – the business she set up with Jimby’s sister Kitty, designing luxurious underwear and burlesque costumes with the odd wedding dress throw in – is thriving.
But on a romantic weekend break, a face from her past triggers a series of events which send Violet into turmoil. She finds herself with no alternative but to reveal a secret she’s buried deep for the past sixteen years. A secret she hasn’t shared with anyone, not even her best friends, Kitty and Molly, and they share everything.
With the revelation forcing a wedge between herself and Jimby, heartbroken Violet fears that he won’t ever be able to think of her in the same way again and won’t want anything more to do with her.
As ever, Kitty and Molly rally round, offering their advice and support but Vi is worried that keeping her secret was just a step too far for Jimby.
Will she succeed in showing him their love is strong enough to overcome it?
The Secret – Violet’s Story is book 3 in the Life on the Moors Series.
After reading some heavier books lately, I needed a book like The Secret – Violet’s Story. It’s cozy and romantic, with plenty of laughs along the way.
Having read the previous novels, I was really excited when this tour was annouced. I absolutely adore these characters and this setting. Eliza J Scott pulls her readers right into the story, making her characters come to life.
While much of this story is light, Eliza J. Scott touches on some heavier topics, which again makes the characters feel realistic. This author truly is a talented story teller and I love her writing style.
I highly recommend checking this out. It can be read as a standalone, but reading the previous books helped me connect even more.
Eliza lives in a 17th-century cottage on the edge of a village in the North Yorkshire Moors with her husband, their two daughters and two mischievous black Labradors. When she’s not writing, she can usually be found with her nose in a book/glued to her Kindle or working in her garden. Eliza also enjoys bracing walks in the countryside, rounded off by a visit to a teashop where she can indulge in another two of her favourite things: tea and cake.
Eliza is inspired by her beautiful surroundings and loves to write heartwarming stories with happy endings.
