The Perfect Fit by Mary Jayne Baker

Do you know, @MaryJayneBaker never fails to put a smile on my face. @TheMirrorBooks have an absolute star in this lady.

After years living in London, costume shop owner Becky Finn is trying to build a new life for herself and fiancé Cole in her old home of Egglethwaite, a sleepy village in the Yorkshire Dales.

Keen to raise funds for the struggling village hall she loved as a child, Becky soon finds herself at the head of a colourful group intent on resurrecting Egglethwaite s Christmas pantomime. But, as she quickly discovers, there’s more to panto than innuendo and slapped thighs.

As opening night grows closer, Becky starts to wonder if her embattled panto will ever make it to the stage and, with handsome co-star Marcus on the scene, if she s picked the right man for her after all.

I started reading this book and felt I’d met an old friend. Having read “A Bicycle Made For Two” I could associate with some of the characters and loved meeting the new ones.

I adore the Yorkshire charm and wit, and the Pantomime rehearsals where so funny, I felt as if I were there!

It’s such a heartwarming story with VERY laugh out loud moments in typical Mary Jayne Baker style. If you know someone, who needs cheering up, just purchase this book. I guarantee it will be the best tonic ever.

I give this book 5*

A Bicycle Made For Two by Mary Jayne Baker

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.

Meet Me At The Lighthouse by Mary Jayne Baker

#BookBlogger. 📚📚 Thank You so much @MaryJayneBaker for once again not disappointing me in your blooming brilliant writing skills when you wrote “Meet Me at the Lighthouse”. 

When I started reading Mary Jayne’s upcoming book, I knew it was going to be the book for me. There is the Yorkshire Coast for a start, and I’m a Yorkshire Lass, living just 13 miles away from the East Coast. There’s Monty the dog, and I am barking, excuse the pun, mad about dogs. Then there is a Hunky man, a love interest who is just so nice. What’s not to love?

The book had me in hysterics, I began reading this book whilst sat in my garden while the birds sang and all was quiet. Suddenly I was right in the pages, no getting me out of them. Unfortunately I came across something early on in the book which really made me laugh out loud, so much so, I could not stop and had to take a breather to compose myself before the neighbours called someone to take me away!

I returned later in the evening in the privacy of my own four walls were no-one could hear me if I started to cackle again ( I did, many times)

The characters are wonderful, the scenery splendid and I now want my own lighthouse. This book really has it all it makes a dark day so bright and really has brightened up my week. 

I rate this book 5/5
