    One thought on “Something Old, Something New”

    1. Annie Thomas had been divorced, twice. Afraid that she'd lose control of her family's situation, with her seventeen-year old daughter's teenage crisis, and her youngest child's wet-bed problems plus dog poop issues, Annie embodied the true essence of being a woman - being a mother.Her second ex-husband, Dex was getting married again. Annie loved Dex too much and respected him when she learned that he's going to tie the knot with his boyfriend Trevor. What shook her tough-look persona though, was [...]

    2. I read Wish Upon a Christmas Cake last year and I adored it, it really reignited my love of the “chick-lit” genre which I had become a bit jaded with. But that book came along at the right time for me, lifted my spirits and got me in the mood for the festive season. Now, with summer approaching and the wedding season imminent, Darcie Boleyn has given us a gorgeous and sumptuous romance with an unusual little twist!When we first meet our heroine Annie Thomas, she isn’t at her best as she po [...]

    3. Being a fan of Darcie Boleyn and her first book 'Wish upon a Cake', I couldnt wait to read her new book. Who cant resist a beautiful cover?. This cover would stand out on any book shelf.I found the begining a little slow, and took a whille to get going. I much prefered the second half but this is because there was more going on and i wanted to keep reading to the end to find out what happened.Here we meet Annie Thomas, nearly 40 and divorced twice. Annie is a teacher and is tired and fed up of h [...]

    4. *** Originally reviewed on thequietknitter/ ***Annie Thomas is a character I think most women will be able to relate to, a working mother juggling the trials and tribulations of life, her kids and the need to have a hot bath without a phone ringing, someone knocking at the door or one of the children needing a poo! What really makes Annie a great character is that she's so engaging, Boleyn possesses the skill of really bringing her characters to life. For me reading about the worries Annie has f [...]

    5. Oh my goodness, what a beautifully written, moving and funny book!Something Old, Something New is told from Annie's perspective, a twice divorced nearly forty year old who is pretty fed up with how her life has ended up and a harassed, stressed-out secondary school teacher. Annie has 3 children, Janis who is 17 from her first marriage to Evan, and Henry and Anabelle, 8 and 6 from her second marriage to Dex.Evan and Annie had too much, too young which ultimately drove them apart however they are [...]

    6. I thought about these characters while I wasn’t reading, which always signals a good book. I rooted for them and anticipated how they might reach their HEAs. The only thing that led me to drop a star was that the crux of the conflict in the story seemed to be lack of communication between characters, so they just needed to talk more. Although the awkward dancing that Annie and Evan did around each other in this book frustrated me, I did love this second chance romance. I wasn’t entirely sold [...]

    7. Reading Darcie Boleyn's Something Old, Something New was like eating sweet & sticky jam sandwiches, watching butterflies flutter about above a sun-dappled meadow, or slipping into your favourite and cosiest pair of pyjamas. I noticed and took to Darcie's warm and inviting style as soon as this book began and knew that I was in for a treat long before it had properly taken flight. The humour, the uplifting and smile-inducing narrative and the family feel that completely enveloped this story a [...]

    8. This is one of those books where my advice is quite simple - read the book, not my review - I loved, laughed, sighed and cried along with it!Annie Thomas is almost forty years old, a teacher, mother of three and has just found out her second divorce is through. How she found out is hilarious - she spotted the remains of the letter confirming it in whilst clearing up the poop of one of her dogs! That sort of sets the tone for the whole book as Annie starts to reevaluate her life and her past deci [...]

    9. Once in a blue moon I like to drag myself away from serial killers, murders and gory deaths,so I was really looking forward to reading Something Old Something New by Darcie Boleyn. I knew I was in for a treat with a dose of humour thrown in when I read the title of the first chapter “Dog Poo Divorce”, and I’m glad to say I throughly enjoyed it (despite there not being any serial killers hiding in the shadows).Annie is fast approaching forty, twice divorced and struggling to balance her wor [...]

    10. First of all, I am in love with the gorgeous cover and such an apt title of the book that sets the tone of the whole book so well.I read Darcie's debut novel last year and I adored it from the first page to the last and her second novel is even better!Something Old Something New has such a refreshing storyline that from the moment I stuck my nose into this book I felt fully transported into Annie's hectic life. Annie's Thomas is a mother of three children; she is and battling the da [...]

    12. I must admit, I was extremely excited about reading this book and being involved in the tour that I read the book a couple of weeks ago, ready. Eager much?‘Something Old, Something New’ gives you an insight to Annie’s past, present and personality. On the topic of personality, if you could choose the most bizarre name for a dog, what would it be? I wonder what Annie called her dogs….Annie Thomas hasn’t had the most straight forward life so far; one child with her first husband, two chi [...]

    14. Something Old, Something New, written by Darcie Boleyn, is a wonderful, heartfelt and humor-filled story!

    15. Sophie Kinsella and Jill Mansell fans are in for a treat with Darcie Boleyn‘s second fabulously fun, flirty and feel-good contemporary romance, Something Old, Something New.Annie Thomas never imagined she would have two failed marriages behind her before she even turned forty. But Annie refuses to be bitter or despondent – even if she spends most of her days mired in dog poo and her kids’ constant melodramas. Life might not exactly be a bed of roses for her, but she wouldn’t have it any [...]

    16. Full review now up as part of the blog tour: thewritinggreyhound/The book follows the story of Annie Thomas, a single mother with not one, but two ex-husbands under her belt. It takes a little while to really get going - Annie has a tendency to moan rather a lot about various people, work, and just life in general. This can get a bit repetitive at times, especially as we're just going over and over the same points time and again. However, once things get going, the story definitely improves and [...]

    17. (review request submitted by the author for an honest critique) Are you a divorcee? Divorcee with kids? How about, do you know anyone who is divorced with or without a child? If you answered yes to any of these questions (which I'm sure you did), then you can identify with Annie's life. She is a divorcee, twice removed, and raising three children while working. She's constantly asking herself, "Am I failing?" Any caregiver can relate to this thought. We always wonder if we are doing enough, prov [...]

    18. 39 year old Annie Thomas hasn’t had the easiest of lives.

It wi [...]

    19. Although I thought the start of the book was nice, and perfectly pleasant, it took ages for the characters and story to really get a grip. I was still wondering if the book would ever works its magic and then I find myself welling up with tears at various places, and the emotion of various situations started to get to me. I think if anything this book my be a good example of "second book syndrome", it really didn't feel as good as the author's first, and I just wonder if it had been rushed a bit [...]

    20. I would say that many of us can relate to having that one ex that we let go for whatever reason that we still have lingering feelings for, mostly it’s because we know we can’t have them anymore. But what if they came back into your life? What if the one you lost came back?That is pretty much what happens to Annie, although he never truly left as he is the father of her eldest daughter Janis, Annie’s ex Evan is back. He returns for a sort of family wedding and Annie is thrown into confusion [...]

    21. I read Darcie’s last book at Christmas (Wish upon a Christmas Cake) and fell in love with it so I was hopeful this one would be as much of a delight. Aimed at the Summer season with weddings in mind it has a totally different feel but is just as engaging in it’s own way.It starts as a slow burner even though we are introduced to several people it took a little while for me to feel comfortable with them, next thing I know they are in my head and I have to find out what drama is next. And boy [...]

    22. This review was first published at M's Bookshelf - mssbookshelfWith a fun and flirty cover and a catchy title like this, I was sold from the moment I heard about Darcie Boleyn's latest book. Although having had the pleasure of reading her Christmas novel Wish Upon A Christmas Cake, just knowing who the author was, was enough to convince me to pick up this beauty.Something Old, Something New is a heartwarming and relaxing read. Its characters are truly wonderful and you can't help but feel genuin [...]

    23. I loved Darcie's last book, Wish Upon a Christmas Cake and was very happy to see this!It was a really good, funny book that dealt with modern issues very well. I was a little started to see Annie's name in full - Annie Thomas - that was my maiden name, and I used to be a teacher, so the coincidences were strong. However I have only been married and divorced once, whereas Annie has been through it twice!The story follows Annie as she negotiates her way through life with both her exes, her 3 child [...]

    24. One thing I love about the few months before summer each year is that we have so many easy to read books coming out. This book falls into that category for me.This is a well written story, with characters I enjoyed reading about. There is a good storyline throughout, and a lot of humour also. The author has done a great job of providing the reader with a story which will transport them from their own lives into the one inside the pages. Many thanks to Carina and Netgalley for providing a copy in [...]

    27. This is my first Darcie Boleyn novel and I absoultely loved it! From the first chapter I was in stitches of laughter. Annie is a character you just have a whole lot of love for, you just feel for her, shes been through so much in her life with being a single mother, divorced twice one of the husband's had turned out to be gay and an unplanned pregnancy when she was very young. You feel like youve known Annie for so long and know so much about her straight away. Throughout the book we see some ch [...]

    28. This review originally appeared on BrizzleLass Books.Something Old, Something New is a feel good summer read that shows us the power of love and the meaning of family.

The book is based in the year before she turns 40, as her eldest child at 17 falls in love, her second ex-husband remarries a man, and her best friend and neighbour finally finds love.During this year we see her grow closer to her f [...]

    29. This is the second Darcie Boleyn book I have read and it was just as good as her first.It was full of drama, humour, friendship, romance and just leaves you feeling all warm and lovely.As soon as I read the first chapter I was drawn straight into the hectic, but wonderful life of Annie Thomas and her family.It had me belly laughing from the start but also had me feeling quite emotional in some parts, but was perfectly balanced out.The storyline was so clever and heartwarming and I think it is de [...]
