A Jersey Bombshell by Georgina Troy
Series:  Jersey Scene #4
Release Date: 17th June 2016
Publisher: Accent Press
Genres: Chic Lit /  Contemporary Romance

Gabriel has returned to the island of Jersey after ten years abroad to help his aging showbiz parents revive their failing Art Deco hotel. This proves to be something of a challenge, especially as his singer father and actress mother are more concerned with staying in the limelight than keeping track of the cash-flow. Gabriel isn’t going anywhere fast … 

Meanwhile, he’s stunned to find that the hotel’s new receptionist is the girl he fell in love with years earlier in Vietnam, and someone who is tied to Jersey is the last thing she needs …

A Jersey Bombshell is the 4th book in the series but can absolutely be read as a standalone. However, go back and read the others too, simply because the writing is so wonderful that it would be such a shame to not have experienced more tales set in the beautiful island of Jersey. Georgina Troy's fantastic descriptions of the island almost had me convinced I could hear seagulls and waves on the beach. It always takes a special type of writer to be able to effortlessly transport the reader to a particular place.

A Jersey Bombshell is based around the characters Daisy and Gabe (fell a little bit in love with him!). The couple originally meet in Vietnam and hit it off instantly. However, when Daisy is suddenly called back home to care for her ill mother, their romance never really develops the way it should. Fast forward a couple of years and now Daisy is working in a hotel in Jersey, unbeknownst to her, that belongs to Gabe's family. When they meet again they are instantly attracted to one another once more. But, the course of true love never runs smooth and...............I'm not going to give any more of the story away! Go buy this fantastic book and find out for yourself!

This is a thoroughly enjoyable read which flows along at just the right pace, keeping the reader interested and invested in the characters. The characters themselves are well developed with great back stories and some you will like and others you won't!  Lydia, Gabe's grandmother is a favourite of mine and with her own particularly interesting history woven into the story she is a fantastic character. This is a lovely story of love, friendship and family.
