Bring Me Sunshine is the new novel from author, Laura Kemp and I am very pleased to be a part of the blog tour today.
Charlotte Bold is nothing like her name – she is shy and timid and just wants a quiet life. When her job doing the traffic news on the radio in London is relocated to Sunshine FM in Mumbles, she jumps at the chance for a new start in Wales.
But when she arrives she discovers that she’s not there to do the travel news – she’s there to front the graveyard evening show. And she’s not sure she can do it.
Thrust into the limelight, she must find her voice and a way to cope. And soon she realises that she’s not the only person who finds life hard – out there her listeners are lonely too. And her show is the one keeping them going.
First off, I want to say that it’s always lovely when I get to welcome another Laura to Novel Kicks.
Words can not describe how much I love the cover of this book. It’s so pretty.
There is such an ease to this book that I immediately got pulled in. I had not read any of Laura’s previous novels but I am wondering where the hell I have been. This will soon be rectified.
The story was told from the point of view of three people and I found this an interesting way to get to know these well-developed characters.
Charlie has just moved to Mumbles to begin a new job. She is terrified to learn that it will be an on air role at Sunshine FM .
Delme, Del to his friends, at the beginning of the novel is working as the health and safety officer at the station.
Tina is the station’s office manager who has a few secrets of her own.
I fell in love with Charlie straight away. She isn’t just black and white. She is fighting battles relating to her past, her confidence and the lack of belief in herself – something I think we can all empathise with on some level. I wanted to jump in and just give her a hug. She felt like a friend.
I felt the same about Del. He is this loveable chap who seems sure of who he is but like Tina, not everything is as it seems.by
