Blog Tour - Just The Way You Are by Beth Moran


A novel about friendship, romance and learning to love yourself - just the way you are.

When Olivia Tennyson – or Ollie to her friends – was sixteen, she wrote a Dream List of all the things she wanted for her life, including a happy marriage and a family. But at twenty-nine, Ollie is single, living at home with her over-protective and manipulative mother, and is feeling like her dreams are getting further out of reach.

It’s time for a change.

It’s time to take matters into her own hands.

Without telling her mum, or more importantly, asking her permission, Ollie finds the perfect place to start her new life. End Cottage has a duck-egg blue front door, a garden that leads to acres of forest, and definitely counts as her dream home.

Now all Ollie has to do is complete the rest of her list and find out who she really is, before she can imagine any romance coming into her life. After all, how is she going to find her dream man in the middle of a forest…

I read this in less than a day! The situation with Ollie's mother rang a bell for me personally - it's sad but true that there are mothers who are like this. And there are women (and men) like Ollie.

But the message in this book is a memorable one, that learning to love yourself just the way you are is equally, if not more, important than any other relationship.

Uplifting, heartwarming, heartbreaking... the story has so much going on, and is so full of love and drama that it's a real treat to read.
