The Secret - Violets Story || Blog Tour

It’s been two years since glamorous and ambitious Violet Smith fell head-over-heels in love with blacksmith Jimby Fairfax, and moved back home to the North Yorkshire village of Lytell Stangdale to be with him. Life couldn’t get much sweeter.

Their romance is blooming and Romantique - the business she set up with Jimby’s sister Kitty, designing luxurious underwear and burlesque costumes with the odd wedding dress throw in - is thriving.

 But on a romantic weekend break, a face from her past triggers a series of events which send Violet into turmoil. She finds herself with no alternative but to reveal a secret she’s buried deep for the past sixteen years. A secret she hasn’t shared with anyone, not even her best friends, Kitty and Molly, and they share everything. With the revelation forcing a wedge between herself and Jimby, heartbroken Violet fears that he won’t ever be able to think of her in the same way again and won’t want anything more to do with her.

 As ever, Kitty and Molly rally round, offering their advice and support but Vi is worried that keeping her secret was just a step too far for Jimby.

 Will she succeed in showing him their love is strong enough to overcome it?

 The Secret – Violet’s Story is book 3 in the Life on the Moors Series.


Let me start with saying i haven't read any of the previous books in the Life on the Moors series, and that does not matter, this can completely be read as standalone.

We meet Violet, who is head over heels with Jimby and we start our journey with them as they head on a romantic weekend away, the couple are so likeable and lovely with different personalities that just work together, they had me laughing. As the weekend comes to a head though, a massive secret is about to rear its ugly head and violet will have to face it head on. However, will it end everything she has in her hands right now?

The Secret was a lovely read, it does tackle serious issues but ts done in a sensitive way. I found the characters were so well rounded, they had personalities they had their own stories and that is what made them feel real to me. The story was well written and whilst  figured some parts of it out it didnt ruin my enjoyment. It was a sweet read that really is my cup of tea, and speaking of tea - they drink alot of it in this book and it had me craving my own teapot full of it.

I loved getting to know Violet and her story, and i really think i need to go back and revisit the moors to get to know the other characters more. I would totally recommend this read, its sweet, delicious, heart warming and full of tea. What more could you want? I know this review is short but wth the title being The Secret - i know of dont want to ruin that for you all. But serious, buy this and enjoy!
