Synopsis: Just when Bluebell thought her crazy family were behaving normally, her parents make an announcement that could turn everything upside down.
If only Zoran, their au pair, would come back to live with them. Unfortunately he’s too busy teaching guitar to his new protégé, Zachary Smith.
Blue is jealous at first, until Zach starts helping her little sister with a secret project and becomes a regular visitor at the Gadsby house.
Then Zach goes missing. Blue needs her family to pull together if they’re going to find him…
200words (or less) review: After falling in love with the Gadsby family in the previous book I knew that I’d enjoy Flora in Love. The question was just how much. The answer: VERY VERY VERY much!
Because you’re already familiar with the characters you’re expecting the chaos but that doesn’t make this book any less entertaining to read. With everyone a year older the dynamics in the family have shifted. The biggest difference is that Jas, the youngest, feels left out now that everyone (even Twig) are having ‘romance’ issues.
I love Blue’s diary format with the video transcripts. You picture it perfectly. Some of them had me in tears I was laughing so much. (Just saying fleas & garden here, when you reach that one you’ll know. 😉 ) The moment you begin reading Natasha Farrant has you hooked. Blue and her family are alive from the opening paragraph to the very last sentence and you’re going to miss them when you reach the end of the book.
Flora in Love is everything I wanted it to be; happy, worried, it made me cheer (milkshake anyone?) and cry with laughter. I do so hope there are more books about the Gadsby family.
