Finding the Rainbow Tour

Holly Newbury’s life is on hold in the cozy English village of Chilton Crosse. While her friends 

are marrying, having children, and embarking on successful careers, Holly is raising her three 

younger sisters and working part time at the village art gallery. Her life feels incomplete, but 

family is more important to her than anything. Then a film crew’s arrival galvanizes the 

community, and Holly becomes fast friends with Fletcher Hays, the movie’s love-shy American 


The production of an Emma film isn’t the only drama in town, though. Their father makes a 

choice that threatens everything she gave up her dreams for. Holly’s sisters endure growing 

pains. And Fletcher plans to return to America as soon as filming is over, ruining any chance of 

their relationship blossoming further. After years of sacrificing for others, Holly must find the 

courage to take a risk on a future she never dared to expect.

When Noelle Cooke inherits a quaint English cottage and an art gallery from her famous 

Aunt Joy, she welcomes a departure from her San Diego routine. But the lure of the Cotswolds, 

combined with a locked cottage room and a revealing journal, entice her to stay and discover 

more, including a way to save the gallery from financial ruin. And that means remaining in 


When her childhood sweetheart, Adam Spencer, begins work on a restoration project in 

Noelle’s village, their friendship blossoms. But as her feelings for Adam deepen, she struggles 

with memories of what might have been and yearns for a future once thought lost. Faced with a 

life-altering revelation Aunt Joy took to her grave and a wrenching choice regarding the man she 

loves, Noelle could lose far more than her heart.

Someone I love to read Women's fiction. I think that is where I would put this genre. 

Because this was set in Great Britain it was a treat for me to read as I am of course from Great Britain in the UK. There is always something endearing to me in reading a book with places I know are mentioned that I actually heard of or now about. 

This is Nota sizzling hot read with lots of bedroom sex, so if you are looking for that, this isn't it. Ifyou are looking for family life, gentle romance and family drama, then this isfor you.

There is Noelle, Adam, Aunt Joy, and a village with village life in this book. 

Noelle is the story, however, we get to hear from Aunt Joy from the diary pages Noelle reads from and it was really a lot of fun reading through this with Noelle and finding out what kind of character Aunt Joy was.

In reading letters from Aunt Joy Noelle reminisces about the life she used to have.

Noelle has inherited her Aunts estate in England, we see what decisions and thought process Noelle had to go through.

My Thoughts 

This was brilliantly written and a great sounding book. I did loose my focus sometimes and had to make myself keep going, so for me, personally it got a bit lapse now and again and not exciting enough to "wake me up" and keep reading. I wish it did, but all in all, this doesn't make it a bad read, it just makes it a steady read that you can pick up and put down. Its certainly not 'edge of your seat' material.

I would like to thank Red Adelphi Publishing for allowing me to read and give my honest thoughts.

Book 2

We are back in Chilton Crosse where we get to meet another character named Holly.
Holly is watching people getting married, settling down and having children, its all families in her Village. But she is left with bringing up her siblings.

She can't even get a job let alone a carer.

Her Mother died, so she is helping her Father raise the 'kids'.
Her life is on hold whilst doing this.

Will she everfind love

Is there something or someone of her own out there somewhere

Fletcher arrives into town to do some filming. The film he is creating is Jane Austin's Emma.

Its a sort of parallel story this which I liked some, and others not.

Its definitely a Woman's fiction sort of read. I used to read a lot of books by Debbie Macomber and for me its sort of on that style.

Its a pleasant read a book that you can settle down, open a nice bottle of wine, some chocolate, curl your feet up underneath yourself and just read.

Its steady.

Thank you to Red Aldephi Publishing for my chance to read/review this series.
