Art and Soul by Claire Huston: A Book Review

Happy March!!

Today is another book review but one that I have been meaning to publish forever, I was kindly gifted a copy of Art and Soul by Claire Huston back in October 2020 but life got a little bit crazy and I forgot to post this review! So we are finally getting around to posting about this incredible read.


There’s no problem Becky Watson can’t fix. Except her own love life…

Struggling single mother Becky Watson longs to revive her career as a life-fixer, working miracles to solve her clients’ problems, no matter how big or small. Since the birth of her two-year-old son she has been stuck preventing wedding fiascos for the richest and rudest residents of the Comptons, a charming, leafy area of southern England known for its artistic heritage.

So when semi-reclusive local artist Charlie Handren reluctantly hires Becky to fix his six-year creative slump, she’s delighted to set him up with a come-back exhibition and Rachel Stone, the woman of his dreams.

Though they get off to a rocky start, Becky and Charlie soon become close. But as the beautiful Rachel becomes Charlie’s muse, Becky is forced to wonder: will giving Charlie everything he wants mean giving up her own happily ever after?

A heart-warming, uplifting romance served with a generous slice of cake. 

My Review:

Art and Soul is an incredibly heart-warming and pleasant read. For me it is a book that gives you an escape from reality with that not only is a great read but has an incredibly confident female main character which is what we love.

Charlie is a renowned local artist who has sadly found himself a little stuck. He’s been in this situation since receiving a negative review of his work some years ago. Enter Becky who loves to fix things. The two strike up a work agreement to improve his career and love life.

The characters in this story are fun and vivid. This makes it incredibly easy to enjoy the characters. I feel like this is definitely a book for when you are in the mood for an easy romance comedy with mature characters.

Becky and Charlie work together to bring him out of his gloomy situation. The storyline progressed in a way that I found myself rooting for him and his teenage daughter.

If you are looking for a feel-good story this is definitely one I would recommend.

Star Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Does this sound like a book for you?

Love Always,

Gee xoxo
