Perfumes and Promises
Chloe Richards is a small town girl with a big heart. At least, that’s what the local folk of Rosehip Village think. But when her parents turn up on her doorstep asking for help, her secret past is about to be revealed.
Being the daughter of Hollywood royalty was never going to be easy, but at 19, Chloe Richards managed to leave that life behind along with the scandals that almost destroyed her. A fresh start was all she needed, and a fresh start was what she got in Rosehip. Girlfriend of a local bookshop owner, best friends with fiercely loyal café owner and owner of a perfume business herself, Chloe has a happy life. But her parents are about to turn her perfect life on its head. Again.
What do you do when you’re torn between loyalty and protecting yourself? Should you trust your heart when your head is telling you not to?
Ellen strikes again!
Perfume and Promises is everything I have come to know and love from Ellen. The story will have you falling in love with Ellen’s characters completely, especially Chloe. Ellen’s heroine is a fiesty, ballsy girl who loses herself at a young age for many reasons and decides to leave everything she knows behind for a new start and to find who she is. Chloe I felt an instant connection with and my love for her only grew and grew the deeper into her journey we went. There are characters we meet as we make our way though many books that leave an their mark and in some way changes us, not always huge changes but changes that last a lifetime, Chloe and story were that for me.
Cue Rosehip. The way Ellen describes the quaint little village and it’s residents makes it very easy to see why Chloe falls in love with Rosehip, in fact I could quite happily move there myself.
This beautifully written story will take you on a ride that has amazing highs and heart wrenching lows and is so emotionally charged, I dare you to not feel every ounce of emotion poured into the words Ellen has written. There are times where your hearts will break but it will soon be on the mend as the story continues. It will completely steal your heart! What gripped me, along with the emotions that so easily engulf you, is the love that is shared in the story and how much it touches you as a reader.
The characters Ellen has created will have you laughing, swooning, crying and if you are anything like me, screaming at your kindles. I certainly took them into my heart and that is where they will remain, well most of them!
I am very grateful to have read this book, I really loved it. It’s one that will now sit proudly in my favourite reads and will be one I will go back to over and over again.
