A Place for Us Part Two by Harriet Evans

The SECOND of four exclusive part-serialisations of a A Place for Us by Harriet Evans will reunite you with the Winter family ...

The day Martha Winter decided to tear apart her family began like any other day.
So opens A Place for Us by Sunday Times bestselling author Harriet Evans, a book you'll dive into, featuring a family you'll fall in love with ... and never want to leave. If you devour Rosamund Pilcher and Maeve Binchy and have discovered Jojo Moyes, you'll be thrilled to add Harriet Evans to your collection of favourite authors.

The house has soft, purple wisteria twining around the door. You step inside.

The hall is cool after the hot summer's day. The welcome is kind, and always warm.

Yet something makes you suspect life here can't be as perfect as it seems.
After all, the brightest smile can hide the darkest secret.

But wouldn't you pay any price to have a glorious place like this?

Welcome to Winterfold.
Martha Winter's family is finally coming home.

 Martha's family members are home and chef Joe is helping her with the food and the drinks. Everything is going according to plan. Unfortunately things don't stay that way. Martha's son Bill and his wife Karen are having marital problems. Her granddaughter Cat has taken her son Luke for his first family visit, only they had no idea he even existed. Joe is getting involved with the Winter family more and more, but not in a very positive way. Piece by piece a few of the family's well kept secrets are being revealed.
I read the second part of A Place for Us in one sitting. The Winter family is intriguing and I was really curious to find out some of their mysteries. Of course I want to know all of them, so I'm anxiously waiting for the next part to come out. I liked that in this novella the author's showing a more assertive side of both Bill and Florence. Even though things are a mess there's still a lot of love and the family members are happy to see each other again. All families have secrets, which makes this story believable, while it's spectacular at the same time. Some people have more things to hide than others though and the Winter family is good at it. This story makes me wonder all the time, which is something I admire very much. I also love Harriet Evan's beautiful writing style. A Place for Us is a fantastic read!
