Review and Blog Tour for A Spring Surprise for the Cornish Midwife by Jo Bartlett @rararesources

Brand new from the top 10 bestselling author of The Cornish Midwife.

Midwife Jess knows she’ll never have a baby of her own, but she’s determined to still be a mum. So Jess decides to foster, providing love and support for children who desperately need it – something Jess never had as a child when she was in foster care.

Jess loves caring for the precious babies who come into her life, but letting them go again breaks her heart every time – can she really be a mum after all?

But then Jess finds a surprise on her doorstep – a newborn baby! As the search for the missing mum begins, Jess cares for the precious babe day and night. She desperately wants to reunite mum and baby, but knows that when the day comes, her own heart will shatter.

Oh, welcome back to Port Agnes! I love the chance to spend some time with thee lovely midwives of Cornwall.

I must say, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to read Jess’ story. We got peaks into her life and journey as we read the stories of the other midwives and I was certainly intrigued!

The romance between Dexter and Jess is beautiful. It happens slowly and is wonderfully developed. They really move from friends to support system to lovers in such a gradual, natural way it’s impossible not to root for them and be so happy for them.

As with the other books in this series, however, it’s not just a romance. This a story of how Jess learns to accept support and love. This story is about how Jess grows into a life of abundance and promise. She learns not to cling to scraps of affection and to really believe in the care and joy she is offered. It really is a wonderful journey to witness.

Jess’ relationship with Baby Teddy and how she handles the events around his appearance and placement with her is a focal point for how she evolves and grows.

To muck up the waters and provide the delicious tension to the story, we have Jess’ ex, Dom, trying to get back into her life. He really is a piece of work but his less than stellar character adds flavour to the tale.

A Spring Surprise for the Cornish Midwife is a delightful story of learning to believe one deserves the best this life and this world has to offer.

I give this book 4.5/5 espresso shots.

About the Author

I was born a stone’s throw from the English Channel and I still live near the sea in Kent, with my own family – so close to the South Eastern edge of England that we’re very nearly French – and it’s probably why so many of my books are set near the sea too. I’ve made up stories for as long as I can remember, but never really took it any further. Concentrating on my career and family, writing went on the back burner until a catalyst called cancer gave me a major kick up the proverbial. I decided I was going to write that novel after all.
