Books Read: Georgina Troy - A Jersey Affair

When shoe designer, Paige Bingham is jilted she decides to enjoy her honeymoon-for-one in Sorrento. What she doesn’t expect is to meet a mysterious entrepreneur, Sebastian Fielding, when she gets to Italy. The sting of her rejection slowly eases as he introduces her to the enchanting ancient sites he knows and loves. 

Unfortunately, soon after Paige returns to her home on the island of Jersey, she discovers that not only is Sebastian’s company taking over the struggling store where her business is based, but that her concession is probably surplus to his requirements. 

How can Paige stop her fledgling business from going under? And what can she do to quell the gossip now that the paparazzi have published their untruths about ‘A Jersey Affair’?

Amazon links: Paperback

As the title suggests the majority of A Jersey Affair is set on the island of Jersey although when we first meet our heroine Paige she is on her honeymoon in Sorento which she has gone on alone since being jilted by her fiance Jeremy.  So the last thing she is looking for is romance when handsome stranger Sebastian rescues her and becomes her personal tour guide, but as they get to know each other there's something about Sebastian that she doesn't know which could threaten her livelihood and any possibility of romance between them...

Paige was a real sweetheart of a character, totally loyal to her family and friends and dedicated to making a success of her business.  As well as Paige and Sebastian, we also get to meet her sister Clem and her boyfriend Olly, Paige's best friend, who had their own issues to deal with.

As a sucker for romance I could see how Paige could fall for the charms of Sebastian so easily and was willing them to overcome the hurdles that they had to face to take their relationship to the next step but I totally understood her reluctance to get involved if there was a danger of her heart and her family being hurt in the process.

The pacing of the story was just right and I flew through it in a single sitting, I loved the mix of characters and the combination of romance and drama as we all know that the path of true love very rarely runs smoothly!

Even though A Jersey Affair is book 2 in a series the good news is that you don't need to have read the first book A Jersey Kiss as both books are completely standalone stories, I'm already looking forward to the next book which should hopefully be published later this year.
