Here is my #review of @MaryJayneBaker fabulously funny A Bicycle Made For Two and my Thanks to @TheMirrorBooks for posting me a copy out as their 1000th Twitter follower.
I’ve read the majority of Mary Jayne’s work, so knew that I needed to have a nice quiet time sat in my garden, with just the sound of the birds singing in the background.
The day arrived, I sat in my garden I grabbed an ice cold bottle of juice from my fridge and I was set for the ride of my life, ( see what I did there?)
I’m a Yorkshire Lass myself so really felt part of this story. It has everything from Medieval Banquets to Batwoman but there is also a very sensitive side to the story to, which actually was really special . Anyone who has read my reviews before will know I never write any spoilers and I’m not about to know.
I actually choked on many occasions while drinking my juice and reading this book and the belly laughs made it even more enjoyable. My neighborhood have probably had words with the local council about me laughing so loudly.
The characters are well written, the village sounds amazing and once again this Yorkshire Author has blooming done us proud.
Well done Lass 😘😘😘
I give this book 5*
A romantic comedy set against the backdrop of the 2014 Tour de France Grand Départ in Yorkshire.
In a lost corner of the Yorkshire Dales, Lana Donati runs a medieval theme restaurant, Here Be Flagons, with her brother.
When she hatches a plan to boost business by getting the Grand Départ route to pass through their village, the small community must work together to convince the decision-makers they’re Tour material.
Not easy when the cast of characters involved includes Lana’s shy, unlucky-in-love brother Tom, man-eating WI chair Yolanda, bickering spouses Gerry and Sue, arrogant TV star Harper Brady, and Lana’s arch-nemesis, former pro cyclist turned bike shop owner Stewart McLean, whose offbeat ideas might just cost them everything.
