    One thought on “Walking in the Rain (Drumbeats 2)”

    1. Walking in the Rain is the second book in the Drumbeats trilogy and follows Jess on the second phase of her life now that she has returned from Ghana. Simon, who broke her heart so badly is now back on the scene and suddenly showing an interest again. Jess is determined to continue with her studies and make a career for herself. However, Simon has other ideas and Jess suddenly finds herself swept away by his enthusiasm and killer smile! She would do anything for him. However, Jess soon finds tha [...]

    2. This is another great book by Julia Ibbotson which is the second in a trilogy following on from Drumbeats although it can easily be read as a standalone. The character of Jess is the character that appears in both books and references to things that happened in Ghana in the first book are in there but I don’t think you need to know the story, however that was a great book and I do recommend that you read it.This book covers a period of Jessamy's (Jess) life from when she returned from Ghana in [...]

    3. After reading Drumbeats I was really looking forward to this, the second book in the trilogy. I wasn't sure where the story would take us this time. Would Jess return to Ghana to try to find her American love Jim? Or would she rekindle her relationship with Simon, the boyfriend she left behind? On her return home Simon breaks up with Jess but then returns unexpectedly to tell her he's sorry and he wants her back. Feeling Simon is the man she wants to share her life with she accepts his proposal [...]

    4. Walking In the Rain is the second book in the Drumbeats Trilogy. It follows the life of Jess. In the first book she has taken a gap year in Ghana. This book is about what happens when she gets back. In the beginning Jess wants to return to Ghana after University and I was looking forward to some African adventures, but the story veers away from this.This book deals with Simon, Jess's boyfriend, who finished with her when she returned from Ghana. But then had a turn-around of thoughts once he saw [...]

    5. This is the second novel in the Drumbeats trilogy, I would thoroughly recommend Drumbeats which is the first novel. This book was just as good. I really look forward to the last book. This book is all about Jess who marries her man and gradually finds out he is not all he is cracked up to be. Julia writes with a lot of description which I really like. The little details Julia gives with her writing are good too. Very enjoyable story.

    6. Jess has survived injury and been in the midst of a civil war in Ghana but she is about to face her biggest challenge yet. Getting married to Simon should have brought her much joy and it did in the form of two beautiful girls but with someone as unstable as Simon was, with an undiagnosed mental condition and the support of his parents who blindly agreed to whatever he said, life was not going to be easy for her.The story was sad as the entire marriage was one sided with Jess bearing the emotion [...]

    7. I might have enjoyed this more had I read the first novel, but I didn't. I found the characters somewhat frustrating but the writing was good. Ibbotson has done a nice job with her plot, just wasn't my cup of tea. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
