Review! The Arcade (June) by Kitty Charles

Handsome florist Danny Huxley is a man with many secrets. Why did he leave a promising career to open a florist’s shop in Angell's Arcade? Why is he cagey about his life? And what is the hold that his ex-wife Aisha has over him?

The female residents of Angell’s Arcade are more than ready to take Danny on. Not to mention his new assistant Rachael, who’s pretty, attentive and clearly in love with him. But she’s half his age. Will Danny resist or follow the example of womanising Magnus?

Like your favourite soap, The Arcade brings you characters you love to hate – and to love. Each bite-sized episode is perfect for your journey to work, your lunch-break – or a quiet night of escapism. And it’ll leave you wanting more – with a teaser of next month’s storyline!

So what are you waiting for? Time to give into your dreams and sample the delights of Angell’s Arcade. Go on, take a look inside.

Review:Another mini review of this fabulous series by a group of authors writing under the pen name Kitty Charles! I almost missed this months episode, it came out so speedily. Just like your favourite magazine, this little gem usual comes out a week or so before the month it represents actually begins. I was especially looking forward to this months episode because I had been wanting to find out more about mysterious florist (yes who'd have thought you'd put those two words together in a book review) Danny for some time now. The mystery of who's baby it is (no spoilers) is still to be solved and I had a dark suspicion Danny could be involved somehow...

This Month's episode isn't quite as much high-drama as it normally is, but we do get to find out some seriously juicy details about Danny. The men are featured a lot more in this episode, its not just Danny who gets in on this action in June. We get to find out a bit more about chocolate shop owner Magnus as well as the bridal shop owner. They go out for casual drinks, as men who work together might, and that is when the high-drama kick up a gear. Yes, there are indeed fisticuffs. This part of the episode is extremely well written because i found myself tensing and ducking as I was reading it, I really felt like I was in on the action!

There is, as usual, some romance. Not only do we have a hint at how things around going following the romance in March's episode, but we also get to find out about Danny's past love, and who he currently has eyes for. The ending of this episode is fabulous, I think it leave less unresolved than previous episodes, but as usual, there is a taster of next month's instalment, and I am sure we are going to find out more about everyones skeletons in their closets if the teaser is anything to go by!

Another fabulous read this month! And a special thank you to the author for including my favourite pink gerberas right at the beginning of the episode!
