A delightfully romantic, heartwarming read for everyone who’s ever looked for The One and found someone better.
You: kind, piano-playing sex godMe: hopelessly romantic charity shop manager
Honeysuckle Jones has a problem, and her best friends Nell and Tash are on a mission to help her solve it. She needs a man – a caring, intelligent, funny man. But most importantly, a man who’s good with his hands…
Luckily Honey’s new neighbour – moody, antisocial ex-chef Hal – fails on almost every count. Even though the chemistry between them is electric, he’s obviously wrong for her in every way.
But when Honey discovers the devastating reason for his moods she decides to give him another chance. And discovers that the best songs aren’t always in tune…
A hilarious, feel-good, sexy romantic comedy for fans of Lucy Diamond, Paige Toon and Giovanna Fletcher.
Even though The Piano Man Project is in the ‘Chick-lit’ category I loved that a lot of the story was spent focusing on the the Old People’s home and the dilemmas there, the story there moved and there was a couple of times when tears threatened!
And despite Hal’s continuous snarkiness and pure grumpiness, like Honey I too was won over by him, but I have to be honest by the end Hal’s demeanour was wearing thin. Also this may sound silly but the name Honey irritated me at the beginning but by the end it suited her so perfectly I couldn’t imagine a different name!
This a funny and delightful book, and I was so sad when it ended, because I wasn’t ready, I wanted more so much more! There is so much more to find out about Honey and Hal that it was frustrating to end, although at least we ended on a high note..
Kat French is an author that I will seek out in the future to read because, basically her books are written perfectly – there is something endearing, charming and utterly compelling about this book that means even though I have just finished I want to go back and reread!
The Piano Man Project was a perfect summery relaxing read, especially as I had a Pimms in one and my kindle in the other 😉 both seemed to go down a treat.
