Another amazing book from Sue Moorcroft. A Home in the Sun is a lovely story that flows seamlessly between England and the beautiful island of Malta. The description in this book had me completely captivated - I could see the Maltese Magic right before my eyes - and I so longed to be there! Sue Moorcroft has a way of conjuring pictures with her words,  and I could feel the heat of the sun burning down on my shoulders as I read this heart aching, ultimately uplifting story. Judith and Giorgio absolutely broke me, and Adam - well, he is my new man crush!!  The ending of the story is so satisfying - but I wanted more! I didn’t want to leave this gorgeous story, and I definitely want to go to Malta now!! Bravo Sue, another brilliant book!!

Bloomin heck, it's been emotional!

Sue certainly puts her characters through the mill. What stood out for me was the different family dynamics, how hard parenting can be, the impact of culture, personal battles but how kindness, friendships and back round to family again will get you through even the toughest times.

This was a bit darker than Sue's normally bright and easy romances.

It was thoroughly enjoyable though with great characters.

At times I actually felt like I was in Malta with the easy lifestyle.

A great holiday read.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were very relatable, every real and every interesting. I loved the relationships and how family is not just biological. This is the first book I've read from this author and look forward to discovering more!

After Judith loses Giorgio,  her lover and  unofficial business partner in a tragic accident in Malta, she tries to pick 

up the sheds of her life back in England.. This is a mammoth task as she has to deal with her mother in an old age 

home,, newly divorced sister, and a bitter ex.  She also has a stepson and a new love in her life, Adam.   

This is a tender story as Judith endeavours to be fair to everyone even though her path is strewn with 

upheaval. She learns to accept change and is strengthened by it.

An uplifting and realistic read.

I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in return for an honest review. 

This was an emotional read, full of difficulties, joys, and sadness and ultimately an uplifting resolution for the heroine. 

Set between Malta and England with 2 heroes - Georgio and Adam, I enjoyed the insight into the problems of falling in love with a married man for whom divorce is impossible even though the marriage has broken down. 

I've been to Malta a few times and loved revisiting it courtesy of this book. The story of love, prejudice, tragedy, and then of rebuilding a life is very heartwarming, although I disliked the cruelty of Georgio's family. 

This is well written and has emotional depth.

Some books just have everything you need to lose yourself in and Sue Moorcroft always manages to capture the imagination with likeable characters and beautiful settings.  The beauty of Malta weaves its magic as we meet Judith, who has moved to Malta after her divorce and whose life changes dramatically when she falls in love with Giorgio.  It is such a beautifully written story covering grief with all its many faces as well as the strength to forgive and make new beginnings.  I especially loved the parts about Judith's mum in the home - the story of the purse was excellent

I received an advance copy of A Home in the Sun, by Sue Moorcroft. This was a pretty good story.  Moving on after a death of  a loved one is always hard.

I always enjoy Sue Moorcroft’s books and this one is no exception. Judith is living on the island of Malta when she meets the man of her dreams but as always things are not straightforward and she is not accepted by his family. Years later he has a tragic accident and frozen out be his family. She returns to her family in Northamptonshire to try to rebuild her life but finds that you sometimes have to go back before you can move on. I would recommend this book as perfect to enjoy on the beach or in the garden this summer.

Another great book from Sue Moorcroft. As always A Home in the Sun fully immerses you into the life of its characters, you truly believe you are both them and where they are.

When Judith meets Giogiolo she thinks she is set for life but tragedy strikes, and she finds herself back in England and around her family with all their myriad of problems. Then she meets Luke, can she be happy again?

Believable, relatable and engaging definitely a good book for the summer.

Finding A Path…
Judith is nursing a broken heart, the loss of her partner which, in turn, brings other losses including her sunny home and her life in Malta. What next? A tale of life, loves, losses, a coming to terms and finding a path in life,  hopefully to happiness. Escapist reading.

What a lovely love story. Not without its complications of course. Judith has been living in Malta with her lover but then returns to England to reclaim her house that she’s been renting out to the lovely but damaged Adam. He begins to get under her skin in a good way. But of course the path of true love never runs smoothly. There are complications with her step son and his girlfriend along the way but nothing will stop these two being together, even the security guards at Malta’s airport. I had tears of happiness at the end. It’s only the second of Sue’s books I’ve read but there will be more.

Judith has escaped to Malta to build herself a new life after divorcing her cheating husband. There she meets the handsome Georgio and quickly falls in love. Separated from his wife for many years but unable to divorce due to local laws and customs, they are forced to live discreetly, shunned by georgio's family. Then came the awful day when Georgio fails to return from a deep sea dive and Judith's life is once more turned upside down. She returns to England and her sister's spare room while she serves notice to quit on the tenant in her own home. She calls on Adam, hoping to persuade him to leave sooner than required notice but until the unfortunate aftermath of a party, held by his son in his absence, he is determined to stay put. She ends up working for Adam and there friendship and burgeoning romance is beautifully captured. However before she can give her heart away again, she has unfinished business in Malta and Adam fears he has lost her. No spoilers! This is a gentle, inciteful journey through relationships, married life, family and ultimately, love. Thoroughly enjoyed it.... Booking my holiday to Malta now so I can see for myself the wonderful places so lovingly described by Sue

I live sue moorcroft books and this one is no exception!
A story of grief, loss and heartache. But also a story of strength, discovery and recovery. Set between Malta and Britain this story takes us through all the emotions, but in an ultimately joyful, uplifting and life affirming way. It’s great!
