Today I’m over the moon to be on the blog tour for The Wrong Direction, the sequel to the charming The Wrong Envelope by Liz Treacher……
Autumn 1920. When Bernard Cavalier, a flamboyant London artist, marries Evie Brunton, a beautiful Devon post lady, everyone expects a happy ending. But Evie misses cycling down country lanes, delivering the mail, and is finding it hard to adapt to her new life among Mayfair’s high society. Meanwhile Bernard, now a well-known artist, is struggling to give up his bachelor ways. The Wrong Direction is as light and witty as The Wrong Envelope, with racy characters and a fast-paced plot. Wild parties, flirtatious models, jealous friends – Bernard and Evie must negotiate many twists and turns if they are to hold on to each other…

It was so great to be back with Evie and Bernard! After reading The Wrong Envelope (book 1), I couldn’t wait to read this and I wasn’t disappointed.
Evie and Bernard get married (yay! The bit I was waiting for) and they try to settle into married life……but it turns out to be more of a struggle than first thought! Evie misses her freedom and her job as a Post Lady and even tries to find a job so she can start working again…..she’s definitely not cut out to be a housewife that’s for sure! Bernard on the other hand, struggles to give up his single, flamboyant life….which (as can only be expected by Bernard) causes trouble!!
What follows is a story of secrets, lies, heart break, travel and a rogue baby!! I’m not giving away the story though….you need to read it for yourself.
I absolutely loved being back with Evie and Bernard. Evie has developed as a character and although a strong and independent woman in The Wrong Envelope, takes this to new levels in this book! I bloody love her and am behind her the whole time. Bernard is as frustrating as ever! You love him but you just want to give him a massive kick up the bum, and tell him to pull his bloody socks up! They went through so much in The Wrong Envelope to get together, you really don’t want them to mess it up….
There are great things happening in the book for the other supporting characters, and there are some sad times too….but it was great to be back with Daisy, Toby, Jones and Benedict!
As you’ll know if you read my review of The Wrong Envelope, I loved the first book and equally love this. I’d love to see another book – I’m sure the escapades would continue and it has me on the edge of my seat, wondering what Bernard will get up to next!
Another fab book from Liz – and one you honestly must read!
