4 Stars

Title: Sweet Pursuits

Author: Pauline Wiles

Genre: Chick Lit 

Amazon US.

Release date: January 26, 2017.


What a cute and delightful story. At times I wanted to shake Bella to wake her up so she would see that Owen was not the one for her and to look at what is in front of her. We all have a little bit of Bella in us so this story makes it easy to relate to. Pleasant chick-lit read for a relaxing weekend getaway. 

I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review.


What’s the recipe for a second chance at love?

After six blissful years with scientist boyfriend Owen, Bella Beecham was convinced he was about to pop the question she’d been longing to hear. Instead, he accepted a prestigious job in California and left England without a backwards glance. Now, Owen’s back in the village of Saffron Sweeting, and appears to be more eligible than ever. Bella’s determined that the man of her dreams won’t slip through her fingers again.

But her plans to tone up, trim down, and tempt Owen back into her life prove bittersweet. Although Bella’s talent for baking wins her new friends, her tasty treats have a disconcerting tendency to sabotage her own intentions. And as her increasingly bold attempts to recapture Owen’s heart stumble, Bella must question whether she’s chasing a guy who wants to be caught.

A British romantic comedy featuring both familiar characters and fresh faces, Sweet Pursuits explores how a young woman seeking her soulmate must first learn to love herself.


British by birth, Pauline is now a contented resident of California, although she admits to occasional yearnings for afternoon tea and historic homes. Her
debut novel, Saving Saffron Sweeting, reached the quarter final of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and was a number one Kindle Best Seller. The stand-alone prequel, Secrets in the Sky, was reviewed by Publishers Weekly as ‘an enticing read’. Sweet Pursuits is the third book in the series. 


When not writing, Pauline can be found pursuing The Serenity Project, her year-long attempt to slow down and appreciate life. She also likes to ponder how many miles she has to run to justify an extra piece of cake, and is fond of daydreaming about flying herself and a reader to London for afternoon tea.
