Somebody Else’s Boy, published by Accent Press is available as an e-book and in paperback form. Here’s what the reviewers are saying so far:
‘This is the first book I’ve read by Jo Bartlett and after reading this novel Jo will be going straight onto my favourite author’s list. Somebody Else’s Boy is book one in the St Nicholas Bay series. Jo Bartlett has written a wonderful tale set around an idyllic coastal bay in the south of England with characters that are easily relatable and you find yourself loving as each page is read.’ – Kraftireader, Book Blogger,
‘Some very serious issues are tackled in this book, but again I can’t go into them as it would spoil the story, and I don’t want to do that. All I will say is that these issues are dealt with in a sensitive manner and add to the depth of the story. For all of these serious issues though, this is in fact a funny book. It is uplifting in the fact that we are reminded to live each day as if it is our last. To embrace it. The very core of this book is based upon a beautiful love story, told through many different narratives. The love that a mother and daughter share, the love between father and daughter, father and son.’ – Jo Worgan, Book Blogger.
The Gift of Christmas Yet to Come published by Accent Press is available as an e-book. Here’s what the reviewers are saying so far:
‘I read this in the run-up to Christmas, but I do think Jo Bartlett’s novella can be read at any time given that the story spans a whole year. For me, the “will she? won’t she?” romance element worked really well and kept me turning the pages to get to the happy ending. I liked the fact that Kate isn’t a stereotypical heroine. Read this delightful story and you’ll see what I mean! Highly recommended’ – Romancing the Book Blog.
‘This may be a short(ish) story but it doesn’t feel rushed at all. The four main characters are engaging and have a wonderful enduring friendship that I felt quite envious of. The author has a very easy to read style and although the story is set around a serious subject, the dialogue is often very funny. If you feel like curling up with a warm hearted story with a romantic feel then I can recommend this’. – My Reading Corner book blog
A Holly Bay Christmas published Fabrian Books is available as an e-book. Here’s what the reviewers are saying so far:
‘Jo Bartlett certainly knows how to tell a good Christmas story. A year or two ago, I read and reviewed her lovely novella, The Gift of Christmas Yet to Come (which, by the way, is being reissued by Accent Press with an absolutely gorgeous new cover) and I thought then that she really knew how to fill her readers with Christmas spirit. A Holly Bay Christmas, is, I’m delighted to report, just as enjoyable, and just as festive. Holly Bay is an absolutely charming little village nestling on the Cornish coast. It’s full of those delightful little shops and businesses that you find in Cornwall, and it’s populated by a community of people who really pull together and care for each other.’ – Sharon Booth Author blog
‘This was one of those books that I meant to just read a chapter or two, late at night and then just kept on reading… and reading… and suddenly I’d finished it. Jo Bartlett writes a lovely story with an easy style that makes you feel as if you are part of the gang standing on the inside, gossiping about the locals. The love element was sweet and realistic and I was rooting for Ben and Maddie. Great Christmas story – I’d be happy to live in Holly Bay!’ – Pepperpot,
Give Me Your Answer Do published Fabrian Books is available as an e-book. Here’s what the reviewers are saying so far:
‘With charming characters and a great setting this is a completely charming read which is as enjoyable as a slice of Ellie’s Mum’s Victoria Sponge cake.’ – Ms G Tea
‘I don’t usually read a book immediately after finishing one by the same author, but having really enjoyed A Holly Bay Christmas, I thought “Why Not”? Again, Jo did not disappoint me with this very enjoyable story. I loved the closeness between Ellie and her mum, Karen, and the way their lives changed for the better when they took over the “special farm” . Another heartwarming story from Jo.’ – DJW Reader
