Review: The Vintage Cinema Club by Jane Linfoot

The Vintage Cinema ClubMeet The Vintage Cinema Club….
Izzy is a wow at making unwanted things pretty, but with three brothers and her shabby chic furniture business to run she doesn’t have time to date. Could a fabulous French proposal change her mind?
Single mum Luce’s vintage bridal dresses are exquisite, but there’s no way she’s ever going to wear one or walk down the aisle for that matter. She’s a strictly no romance, one night kind of woman – or so she thinks…
Dida seems to have it all – a chocolate and banana cake recipe to die for, lovely kids (most of the time!) and a great lifestyle. But what good is a fabulous home, when your marriage has more cracks than a pavlova and your husband is having it off with half of Lithuania?
Three retro fabulous friends, in love with all things vintage, run their dream business from the faded grandeur of a rescued cinema. When that dream comes under threat, they’ll do whatever it takes to save it.
Fans of Lucy Diamond, Michele Gorman and Milly Johnson are going to love this heartfelt, funny story...

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars.

The opening chapter is more than enough to make you want to sit down and binge read this entire book, Luckily? for me I had so much going on at home that I had to limit my reading time, which really allowed me to savour the moments.. almost every moment that I wasn't immersed in this book my thoughts where.

While the book has three leading ladies and each lady has an important part to play, this story does focus mostly on Izzy and her inability to stop lusting after Xander, the hunky guy who, despite insisting he doesn't want a relationship of any kind with anyone, cant keep his eyes off her. Izzy and Xander are so perfectly suited,  they are obviously smitten with each other but they lie to themselves and try to convince themselves they don't want anything more. It's almost laughable. Especially when you consider the chemistry between them sparks right off the page.

With every book I read written by Linfoot I fall more in love with her style of writing, these books have become a must have for me and my bookshelves, so much so that when I was given the chance to read this I jumped at the chance, without so much as a glance at the blurb or cover. And I think The Vintage Cinema Club may just have become my firm favourite.
