Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Garden on Holly Street by Megan Attley


Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for The Garden on Holly Street by Megan Attley. 


What They Say:
Sometimes you have to dig a little deeper to get the life you want . . .
Abby Hamilton's world has turned upside down in a matter of months - it seems that change is definitely in the air. But moving into Willow Court might just be the fresh start and happy distraction she needed.
Meeting her intriguing new neighbours helps push Abby out of her comfort zone. Then she finds an overgrown patch of garden in desperate need of love and time - something Abby has in spades! Throwing herself into bringing the garden back to life, Abby discovers that new beginnings can come from the most surprising places...

About The Author:
Megan Attley is the pseudonym of a bestselling and prolific women's fiction writer. She lives in South Wales with her husband, two children and three crazy (but beautiful) dogs.




What I Say:

The Garden on Holly Street is such a wonderful story of hope, friendship, love and second chances!

I adored all of the characters, especially Ernie! I related to Abby loads and cried for her right at the beginning of the book. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a sob story. But her history resonated with me and I felt for her. Everyone plays an excellent part in telling this story. I also loved how easily the dialogue flowed. It read like a conversation should, it was effortless.

The Garden on Holly Street made me think about how I spend my time, how I interact with my neighbours and the second chance I was lucky to get in my own life. Life after a break-up can be really hard. Abby had great friends in Lisa and Fiona and they helped push her out of her comfort zone in order to start living life for herself. They were fab and I loved their dynamic! Abby is so strong and resilient, she is the kind of woman I'd like to be friends with.

The Garden on Holly Street is a beautiful, uplifting and heart warming story, perfect for reading in your own little garden paradise.  9.5/10

I love looking back on my reads from the year but I hate feeling like I left off a book that I loved or missed a hidden gem. I worked long and hard on this list and I feel really good about it this year. I have read 53 out of the 45 books I had hoped to read this year, so I'm pretty pleased with that.

So, here we go!

It’s the most magical time of the year, and for travel agent Sarah it’s also the busiest! But this year one man threatens to ruin Christmas for Sarah’s customers – Mr Grinch, Will Armstrong. The Shooting Star Mountain resort is a magical place, and Sarah has fond memories of Christmas here as a little girl – visits to Father Christmas, husky rides in the snow and hot chocolate by a roaring fire.
