I’m thrilled to be taking part in the blog blitz for The Wrong Envelope by Liz Treacher. Thanks so much to Kelly of Love Book Tours for the invitation and to the author for my lovely paperback copy. Before I share my review here’s what the book is all about:
Summer 1920. Two worlds are about to collide. Evie Brunton loves her job. Twice a day, she spins along the narrow lanes of Devon on her bicycle, delivering letters from a heavy post bag. When the flamboyant London artist, Bernard Cavalier, drops like a meteor into her sleepy village, everything changes. Bernard is supposed to be painting for an important exhibition, but the countryside has its own charms, in particular his young post lady…Light and witty, and full of twists and turns, The Wrong Envelope is a charming romantic comedy. It captures the spirit of another age – when letters could change lives.

This was such a delightful read, one that transported me back to a much simpler era. Whenever I picked it up or even thought about this book I had a smile on my face. In fact I loved this book so much that I’m already reading the sequel, The Wrong Direction.
I loved being in 1920s Devon, wonderfully described by the author that I could envisage it all in my mind’s eye as I was reading. I was intrigued by Evie’s job as a post lady delivery 3 times a day on her bicycle in all weathers up and down those hills. Bernard’s artist life was fun to read about especially as he seemed to be much better at procrastinating then actually painting!
It’s a simple tale with two wonderful main characters of Evie and Bernard and a will they or won’t they scenario.
If you’re looking for a delightful historical novel, I highly recommend that you put this book on the top of your tbr straight away!
