    One thought on “Abi's House”

    1. Sumptuous summery story, would be a great summer holiday read, while picturing yourself in Cornwall alongside Abi, having cream teas and generally making the most of the slower pace of life. I absolutely loved how Abi remembers a house in Cornwall from when she was a child, remembers it was called Abbey's House but not much more, and now that she is widowed and determined to make a fresh start, she feels drawn to not only Cornwall, but to Sennen, to try and ideally locate this house, and then fi [...]

    2. I'm sure I have already given my views on this book but seemingly it was not registered. I chose it because it was set in Cornwall and we absolutely loved it there. Bad choice. As I have limited my reading to Kindle books for some time now I am reliant upon the ratings given any book by previous readers. Over 70 people gave this book four stars (I'm not joking)!!! So here's a thing - I suggest that all readers give themselves a 'Mills and Boon' rating with 1 being 'Read Mills and Boon ALL THE TI [...]

    3. When Abi is suddenly widowed at 30 years old she realises that she has become a shell – modelled into the wife her dead husband wanted her to be and not the person she wants to be.Feeling suffocated in Surrey by the ‘lifestyle’ and her In Laws Abi up sticks and heads to Cornwall to find Abbey House – a place her family found years before whilst on holiday. Once in Sennan Abi quickly makes new friends and soon realises she has found the one place she wants to call home.Jenny’s style of [...]

    4. Abi’s House by Jenny KaneWhat a great book! It is nice to take a break from my usual reads to read a love story. Abi’s House is a book that everyone should read. Abi has been through a lot and what she needs is love from a real good man. She thought she had it made but it wasn’t what it seemed to be. The best thing for her to do is leave the life she has now behind and move on to something better. If only the past would let her go that is. There is one person that will help her but will sh [...]

    5. The story is quite predictable. But there is something nice and comforting about stories which develop 'as they should'. I chose the book because I love stories which take place the sea, favourable including some walks at the beach etc so even when I am not able to travel to the sea, sometimes books give me a "beach /at the sea feeling". This book did not suceed in this area. Probably it was not the topic/aim of the author. But thats why it does not get 5 stars. And because i fell not quite into [...]

    6. Reading a Jenny Kane book is like opening a journal by a much loved friend. I'm spirited away into a world of warm, friendly and interesting people. To places that I not only want to visit but actually live in. Shops, cafés and pubs that I want to be my locals and life that I want to experience and be a part of. Abi's House gives you all of these feelings and left me with a huge smile on my face and a glowing in my heart. More of this wonderfulness please!!Copy kindly gifted by author for hones [...]

    7. Abi's controlling corporate husband died 6 months ago. She decides to relocate to Cornwall but things aren't quite so straightforward. Nice book with hunky Cornishmen and lovely scenery!
