Summer 1920 and two different lives are about to collide.
Evie Brunton is a hard-working Devon post lady. She spins along country lanes on her bicycle, delivering letters from a heavy post bag. Bernard Cavalier is a lazy London artist. He swans around Mayfair, quaffing champagne with the smart set. So when Bernard is packed off to Devon to prepare for an important exhibition, and drops like a meteor into Evie’s sleepy village, there is bound to be trouble. Away from the distractions of London, Bernard is supposed to be painting, 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 captures the spirit of another age, when letters could change lives.

This was a wonderfully heart warming story which I so enjoyed! The book just appealed to me as who can resist a slightly old fashioned, quirky love story. It’s very easy to read and I was quickly drawn into the story and the lives of Evie & Bernard.
The setting of the book is brilliantly described and I loved the small village setting with the great variety of characters living there. It all sounded wonderfully idyllic and I found myself wishing I lived there.
I quickly warmed to Evie and Bernard as I learnt more about them. The love story between the two of them was quite realistic as it’s not all plain sailing with lots of twists that keeps them, (and the reader) on their toes. Some of the misfortunes that happen were very amusing and I found myself laughing out loud whilst reading them. I was firmly on their side and so wanted a happy ending for them.
This was a fantastic romantic comedy which I found hard to put down. The writing and great descriptions makes you think that you are there experiencing everything alongside the characters. I found myself quite sad to finish the story and leave everything behind so was very excited to learn there was a sequel. I’d love this to be made into a film as I think it would be fabulous on the big screen.
Huge thanks to Kelly from Love Books Group for inviting me onto the blog tour and for my copy of this book. If you’re looking for a fun, easy holiday read then you’ll love this book!
