THE OLIVE BRANCH BY JO THOMAS

It’s time to let love grow

You can buy almost anything online these days. For Ruthie Collins, it was an Italian farmhouse.

Yet as she battles with a territorial goat and torrential rain just to get through the door of her new Italian home, the words of Ed, her ex, are ringing n her ears. She is daft, impetuous and irresponsible.

But Ruthie is determined to turn things around and live the dream.

First, though, she must win over her fiery neighbour, Marco Bellanouvo, and his tempestuous family and then there’s the small matter of running an olive farm. As the seasons change and new roots are put down, olives and romance might just flourish in the warmth of the Mediterranean sun.

MY REVIEW

You can buy almost anything online these days. For Ruthie Collins, it was an Italian farmhouse. Ed her ex husband thinks that she is daft, impetuous and irresponsible.  As Ruthie arrives in the rain at her farmhouse she can see that some of the rooms need some TLC and her mind starts run in to a fantasy as she thinks that an open barn on one side of the courtyard would make a wonderful B&B.  But she is determined to turn things around and live the dream. What I liked about this story is the fact that it was a relaxing read and so easy to follow.  I warmed to Ruthie and wanted only the best for her. This is a heart warming tale. What more could you wish for?

  1. Looking forward to reading this.

  2. Lots of reviews say that you can sit drinking a glass of wine reading The Olive Branch, but I don’t drink so I put my feet up with a cup of tea and biscuits while reading this delighful novel. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
