My Thoughts 

The Good News Gazette had so much of what I could have hoped for in a feel good novel, but… this just fell flat for me. I couldn’t connect to the story, I disliked the gossipy tone here, and I found the characters unlikable as well. 

However, this was well written and most reviewers seem far more enamored than I. I simply wasn’t the right reader for this, but I have no doubt it will find its audience.

She may be down but don’t count this determined single mum out just yet…

Nine years ago, Zoe Taylor returned from London to the quiet hamlet of Westholme with her tail between her legs and a bun in the oven. Where once her job as a journalist saw her tearing off to Paris at a moment’s notice after a lead, now the single mum covers the local news desk. At least, she did…until she’s unceremoniously let go.

When Zoe invites her friends over to commiserate, wine and whining soon turns into something more… and before the night is out she’s plotted her next step: The Good News Gazette.

Now, as a developer threatens to force Westholme into the twenty-first century, Zoe’s good news movement finds her leading a covert campaign as a community crusader. She may have started The Good News Gazette as a way to save herself, but she might just be able to save Westholme in the process…
