BOOK REVIEW WILD AND FREE BY WENDY HOLDEN

Wild & Free is the festival du jour. Everyone piles through its gates – and Cupid lies in wait to sprinkle a little midsummer madness on them all.

Teacher Ginnie is desperate to forget her crush on headmaster Mark, and hopes glamping might do the trick. But Mark is also heading for Wild & Free to reform his college band … desperate not to be seen by anyone he knows.

Mark’s bandmate James dreams of a festival blow-out with his son, Guy … until his wife Victoria’s ambition kills the dream. Now she and Guy are en route to Wild & Free instead but when Guy meets Shanna-Mae and falls for her earthy charms, Victoria is determined to snap Cupid’s arrow.

Will the magic of the festival send them wild? Or set them free to find peace and love?

Firstly a big thank you to Headline and Bookbridgr for sending me a copy to review .

Its been a while since I have read one of wendys books but I remember loving what I had read.

Il be honest I wasn’t sure what to expect from this so It exceeded my expectations and I read it in one day.

There are a lot of characters which at first can be difficult to keep up ,on the whole I enjoyed reading all the different storylines except the one of the released prisoner as to me it felt disjointed and I believe the book would have been enough without them.

However I adored Ginnie and Mark and would have loved to have read more of their story.

I hadn’t read Gifted and talented which I believe is a kind of prequel to this book but  I don’t feel this affected my enjoyment in any way .

It has a real summery festival feel to it and I just got swept along with the words. Really enjoyable and entertaining read
