Meet The Vintage Cinema Club….
Izzy is a wow at making unwanted things pretty, but with three brothers and her shabby chic furniture business to run she doesn’t have time to date. Could a fabulous French proposal change her mind?
Single mum Luce’s vintage bridal dresses are exquisite, but there’s no way she’s ever going to wear one or walk down the aisle for that matter. She’s a strictly no romance, one night kind of woman – or so she thinks…
Dida seems to have it all – a chocolate and banana cake recipe to die for, lovely kids (most of the time!) and a great lifestyle. But what good is a fabulous home, when your marriage has more cracks than a pavlova and your husband is having it off with half of Lithuania?
Three retro fabulous friends, in love with all things vintage, run their dream business from the faded grandeur of a rescued cinema. When that dream comes under threat, they’ll do whatever it takes to save it.
‘The Vintage Cinema Club’ is quintessential women’s fiction.
Set in the Derbyshire Dales with a lovely interlude in France, the story follows Izzy, Luce and Dida in their quest to save their vintage emporium, housed in an old cinema in Matlock. The setting is intrinsic to this story and speaks of local knowledge. As I know the area well it gives the book an additional enjoyable dimension for me.
There are plenty of interesting snippets about all things vintage and a strong bond between the three friends, as they fight to save the place that has focused and enriched their lives. There is gentle humour and dreamy, passionate romance but everyday life and secrets leave you wondering if it will survive. The story’s pacing is good and the short chapters, like scenes of a play give you insider knowledge of what is happening and how it affects The Vintage Cinema Club members.
I read this story in a day and it is a page turning, feel good read I recommend.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
