The Resturant @ The Mill: Tour Stop and Giveaway (Today is also my birthday!!)


Contemporary Romance/Women's Fiction
Title: The Restaurant
Author: Linn B. Halton
Date to be Published: 8/2/12
Publisher: Sapphire Publishing

Blurb: Age, relationships, and careers – we are all unique. Yet beneath the exterior facade we choose
to show to the world at large, what do we have in common? The things we bury deep inside; the
worries and fears we are unable to verbalise, and the hand fate takes in our lives is a common
thread. Sometimes we fail to recognise in each other that innermost struggle on the path to true

Six very different stories, six couples linked by The Restaurant @ The Mill, owned by Hilary
Marks and Ben Adams. As the restaurant thrives the atmosphere is alive with conversation,
snapshots of lives unfolding; each one a personal journey.

My Review: I loved this book, it was a wonderful journey with each and every character,from start to end. The stories were both fast paced and very entertaining. I found it very refreshing to follow each character it was so very sweet. There are so many things in this book that I love in my chick Lit

I ended up reading this in one sitting and it was worth dropping all my other stuff to read!

My Recommendation: This book is just wonderful, I would recommend without hesitation if you don't believe me here is the excerpt.

Excrept: When your family is affected by a tragedy, you find yourself in the midst of emotions that are so strong it’s almost impossible to keep a grasp on normal life. The tragedy happened to my sister, Mya, who was driving home one dark night in the pouring rain. The car that hit hers swerved to avoid a cyclist whose wheel had struck a pothole, and the effects of that night spread out like ripples on a pond to catch us all.
Sam was my sister’s boyfriend, and during the long months following the accident we were all distraught. My parents had each other for support, but I couldn’t add to their burden, could I? So I shared my feelings with Sam and he, in return, shared his feelings with me. I was nineteen at the time and Sam was twenty-seven. He always talked to me as if I was his equal; he made me feel that my fears and worries mattered, that I mattered.
The day I knew beyond a doubt that I had fallen in love with him was, ironically, the day he made the decision to gently disengage himself from our family. One moment he was a part of everything that was going on and within a few weeks he was no longer there when I looked for him. Mum and Dad accepted it was time for him to move on, grateful for the way he had taken care of me. I knew from that very first day when he appeared late and left early, that it was the start of the end; I also knew that I couldn’t change how I felt about him. I had no idea whether he noticed the difference in me, because either way it could never work. If he felt something for me, how could we pretend that he hadn’t once loved my sister? If he thought of me simply as Mya’s younger sister, that would break my heart.

My Rating for this book: 5 Roses

Rosa, thank you so much for being such a fab host and also for the amazing review! The Restaurant is very close to my heart, a bit of a risk as it 'finishes' some of the side characters' stories from two of my other novels. Sometimes though I think as a writer you know when something needs to be taken to a conclusion and I'm so happy you enjoyed reading it! Many thanks!

I'm so looking forward to reading this book.We had a restaurant near us called The Mill until it changed to Ashoka @ the mill it's just not the same. Happy Birthday!

Linn B Halton said...

Ah Anne, that's such a shame as Ashoka doesn't quite have the same ring .. hope the food is good though!

I'm puzzled with lots of exercises. I was afraid I could not do the right time despite my hard work. I need a support person.
