Bella Summer Takes a Chance

By Michelle Gorman

 

Bella Summer, otherwise known as B., is a one of those characters you fall in love with from the start.  She has just broken up with her longtime boyfriend, having decided that a relationship based on friendship rather than love was not enough.  She then finds a new flat mate in Frederick whom she has convinced herself is gay, despite his protests. Her job suddenly ends as well as her part-time gig as a singer in a local establishment.  She realizes that she can’t let her flat mate support her until she finds a job, so she moves back into the house she bought with her former boyfriend Mattias on the condition that their relationship remains platonic. 

Bella‘s best friends Kat, Clare, and Faith were there for her when she broke up with Mattias, when she lost her job and her gig, and they were there to help her through her decision to make her music her life’s ambition, if only she could get a manager and a steady singing gig. 

The biggest issue facing B. is whether or not friendship is enough in a relationship.  Was she wrong to leave Mattias? Kat and James’ marriage was based on friendship. Faith dated a lot, but couldn’t seem to find her perfect match. Clare finds she is pregnant by “The Shag” and doesn’t think she wants a future with him.  In the end will everyone find love and happiness?

I loved the characters in this book. Gorman had names for the men Bella dated: The Dad, The Musician, and The Actor. She became friends with The Grandson.  Kat, Clare, Faith, and Frederick are B.’s lifeline, each with their own problems to unravel. Then there was Marjorie, the lady that B. volunteers to visit in the nursing home, who is the most colorful of all the characters and the wisest in life and in love.

I started reading BELLA SUMMER TAKES A CHANCE and was hooked from the very first page.  It has a little of everything – humor, romance, conflict, friendship.  I highly recommend BELLA SUMMER TAKES A CHANCE by Michele Gorman.

This book was provided by the publisher in return for an honest review.
