#PublicationDay Moonbeams in a Jar by Christine Stovell #BookReview


A fabulous heart-warming story that’s set in Christine’s fictional seaside town, Little Spitmarsh and Hong Kong. Makes a perfect weekend read!

When Chloe Potter wishes on a star that she’ll find a man who’ll accept her and her noisy dachshund Wilma, she doesn’t think that she’ll bump into one quite so soon … 

But almost immediately she meets Ryan Green and his boisterous basset hound, Fred. Ryan is larger than life, ruggedly handsome and, most importantly, a dog lover – surely a match made in heaven?
But Chloe soon finds that trying to tie a man like Ryan down is like trying to catch moonbeams in a jar. Ryan’s job as a photographer means that when he’s not in the middle of a war zone, he’s trying to catch just the right light at the top of Mount Snowdon.
Chloe wants stability and when it becomes clear that Ryan will always put his job first, she knows she has to move on. But then a once-in-a-lifetime trip unexpectedly brings them together once again …

I found this to be such a delight to read! And stunning to look at! That cover is beautiful!!  Full of  lovely characters, cute pets and a storyline of being brave and doing something out of your comfort zone to help you move on from sad times in your life which can often lead to new opportunities and a new outlook on life!

Chloe – and Wilma the noisy dachsund! – finds herself wishing on a star to help her find love.  Who knew that love would appear so quickly in her life and help change her world!  Ryan – the owner of Fred the basset hound – is everything she dreams of in a man and is perfect – except he can never commit to dates for things as his job often takes him round the world at a moments notice. 

But with his help she does move forward with her life and this leads to exciting new ventures and allows her to open up to him about the sadness she has dealt with in her life, and to face up to the future. But is there a future with Ryan?

This was such a lovely, quick read and I would have even loved to spend more time with Chloe and Ryan as I found them so easy to relate to.  Delightful!!
