The Landlord of Hummingbird House Jane Harvey 5*#Review @DreenaC @rararesources #Relationships #MentalHealth #Romance #Friendship #Family #Secrets #LiteraryFiction #Uplit #BookReview #TheLandlordofHummingbirdHouse

When April moves into Hummingbird House, she is intrigued by her mysterious landlord, Dai.

With a bruised heart and a distinct lack of furniture, she spends the summer getting to know the other occupants. As she smartens up her home and makes peace with her recent past, she befriends Paul, a solitary ex-chef, and Betty, an elderly lady who lives in the basement flat.

But Hummingbird House holds many secrets, and the relationships of the tenants are not as straightforward as they seem. April learns some shocking truths one eventful night, and realises that victims and villains can look the same.

The Landlord of Hummingbird House is a contemporary novel exploring unlikely friendships, unexpected love interests, and family relationships. Here, everyone is in need of a second chance – and appearances can be deceptive.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

The reader, not sure what to expect, is drawn into this insightful and poignant tale gently. The carefully drawn characters are full of flaws, secrets and wisdom and make this addictive reading. This multi-viewpoint story gives the reader an omnipotent view of the characters and events.

April is the latest tenant in the house. She is healing from a breakup, and her life is now an emotional journey of self-realisation. She offers help and support to the others in the house even if they are not sure they need or want it.

Friendship, humour, poignancy and romance, are believably written into this contemporary story. Hummingbird House’s characters and ethos are vibrant and vividly portrayed and make this immersive reading.

Jane Harvey is a pen name (shhh). She crafts fun fiction for the thinking woman, where she enjoys exploring unexpected friendships and writing happy endings. This is lucky, because in real life her (prize-winning) fiction is a little bleaker. She was born and raised on the island of Jersey, and lives with two males and a dog. She owns an admirable collection of animal vases and unusual lighting.
