Meet The Vintage Cinema Club…
Izzy is a wow at making unwanted things pretty, but with three brothers and her shabby chic furniture business to run she doesn’t have time to date. Could a fabulous French proposal change her mind?
Single mum Luce’s vintage bridal dresses are exquisite, but there’s no way she’s ever going to wear one or walk down the aisle for that matter. She’s a strictly no romance, one night kind of woman – or so she thinks…
Dida seems to have it all – a chocolate and banana cake recipe to die for, lovely kids (most of the time!) and a great lifestyle. But what good is a fabulous home, when your marriage has more cracks than a pavlova and your husband is having it off with half of Lithuania?
Three retro fabulous friends, in love with all things vintage, run their dream business from the faded grandeur of a rescued cinema. When that dream comes under threat, they’ll do whatever it takes to save it.
Thank you to the author Jane for sending me a copy to read and review. The Vintage Cinema Club will be the fourth book I’ve read of Jane’s and as ever, I’m excited to read another novel filled with love and laughs. Firstly, I’d just like to say just how beautiful the cover is – it’s pretty isn’t it? I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but it matches the content so well.
The Vintage Cinema Club is told through the eyes of three ladies – Dida, Izzy and Luce – and they each have an individual story to tell you about, as well as collectively being involved in The Vintage Cinema Club. However, the more you read, the more you see Izzy become the central character, which personally I felt was a good move. I liked Izzy the most within the story because she never changed who she was and was always true to her word. When Xander pops into her life she’s a new woman and sees happiness shine through, whereas previously she was a little bitter and resented certain areas of her life.
Thanks to Dida’s horrible husband the old cinema where the Vintage Club is held is up for sale and all three ladies fight to keep the club alive. Wow, let’s just say you wouldn’t mess with these three ladies, they were incredibly passionate and I expected nothing less. The club was not only a job to the group of friends, but a passion. They worked hard to produce a variety of Antique pieces that would become part of someone’s home.
The Vintage Cinema Club is definitely one you should all pick up this Summer whilst you’re enjoying a nice cold beverage – it’s full of laughs, love and a few tears. Go read it ☺
