No-one ever accused Sophie Campbell of being a coward. From caving trips to rooftop pranks, it appeared nothing could hold her back, especially once she landed a dream job promising travel all over the world.

But Sophie’s jet-setting lifestyle is not what it seems and she’s been spending more time in the quiet English village of Saffron Sweeting than she cares to admit. When her beloved Great Aunt Wol dies suddenly, Sophie loses one of the few people who truly know her. As friends, family and an old flame gather for the funeral, questions soon follow. Worse, Sophie finds herself increasingly attracted to the man most likely to expose her secrets. Can she manage to guard her past, yet finally follow her long-held dream?

My Review

The protagonist in Pauline Wiles’ prequel to Saving Saffron Sweeting, Sophie Campbell, has so many secrets to keep, and some to discover; secrets that get in the way of her moving forward after the death of her beloved Great Aunt Wol, and of finding true love. In the small village of Saffron Sweeting are her secrets really safe? Most of all Sophie wants to keep her secrets from her mother, but will her boyfriend Joey, who is close to Sophie’s mother, spill the beans? Is Sophie willing to do what it takes to keep him from telling all?

When Tom enters the story, early in the book, there are vibes that Sophie tries to ignore. Tom discovers a link between him and Sophie, but soon discovers she’s not who she says she is.

The various characters woven expertly into the story, each have a place in the unraveling of Sophie’s story. Whether they are supporting her, as her friend and housemate Bella, or have a reason to expose her, each character adds to the viability of the story. The author beautifully introduces characters who, each in their own way, have an impact on the direction the story is taking the reader, while at the same time creating a real life image of a village that feels as real as any town the reader may have visited.

A five-star book, I was mesmerized by Secrets in the Sky and didn’t want it to end. Secrets in the Sky is a book I highly recommend to all readers of women’s fiction/chick-lit. Now I need to get a copy of Saving Saffron Sweeting!

  1. I loved reading Saving Saffron Sweeting and Secrets in the Sky. (I read Saving Saffron Sweeting twice.) I love the world Pauline Wiles has created in her books – I want to LIVE in Saffron Sweeting. That’s why I’ll read anything and everything she writes. The chance to visit that special place.
