Reader Reviews

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Enthralling from start to finish

Travel with Jamie through London, captivating and lost within her world with the first few pages. Humour, and great writing by Julie looking forward to the next book. Purchased a second copy for a friend’s birthday (awesome read and will make a great present)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Brilliant reading.

I really enjoyed this book. I couldn’t put it down so ended up reading it really quickly and stayed up far too late to finish it.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Must read!

This book had me hooked straight away. Julie describes the characters so well that you feel like you're on their journey with them, Jamie especially, just wanting the best things for her. And you certainly want to visit Alchemy & try a Marmalade Martini! There are lots of twists and turns in the book that keep you intrigued as to what's coming up on the next pages. I'm a sucker for romance and this story certainly didn't disappoint. It's also very educational because of the level of detail Julie has put into everything she's written about. The best thing about a book for me is when you can visualise a character and their setting - I actually felt like I was walking the streets of London taking it all in!
A fantastic first book by Julie and looking forward to the next one.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Jaw dropping.

@julieforester1 Wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this, but it quickly drew me in. Rich interesting characters and 2 no 3 jaw dropping surprises. All in all a very enjoyable read. 5 ⭐️s Julie. Is there a sequel? 🤞

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Loved, Loved, Loved it...

So, I read #MARMALADEMARTINI over the last two nights. I've read a lot of good stuff lately, but this is definitely one I'll be recommending. What's next? Whatever it is, I can't wait! 😍

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Gripping and exciting!

I really enjoyed this book and it is a great addition to contemporary lesbian fiction. The dialogue is gripping and the characters are fully believable, they grow and come alive through the pages. I look forward to reading Ms Forester’s next novel!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It was amazing!

I first read Maggie Turner's comments, which was one if the early reviews for this novel. This was a great review, but they just seem to get better and better. This is absolutely a must read novel. Crying out for a sequel. Don't let this one escape your reading list.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Read it, just read it.

This is just fabulous. I loved every word of it. The story was both believable and captivating. I could see every detail in the story, forming a picture in my head of the characters and the settings. You know like Bastian reading the Never Ending Story? Well that was me with Marmalade Martini. I am super excited for the next book.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A damn roller coaster of drama.

Just finished reading Marmalade Martini by @JulieForester1. This book was a damn roller coaster of drama, victories, and a bit of suspense. Had me hooked and desperately checking to see when the sequel would be out. More drama than romance but great.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ A page turner.

This book definitely keeps you wanting to turn the pages. It has a high dose of drama with pockets of levity and...characters to keep you engaged...the descriptions were really well done. Particularly Alchemy - definitely the kind of place I'd love to hang out. There are so many plot-lines going...which was not a bad thing - the story was engaging and kept building with each page...The book ends with some great resolutions and some unanswered questions...Overall, I enjoyed the book. I definitely want more of these characters.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐This is a re-read.

For a first novel this is very accomplished. From the moment Jaimie walks into the bar named "Alchemy" the story never lets go. The MC's are to die for, very likeable and you're willing them to get together as soon as the sparks fly. Their chemistry is palpable. I really loved how Ms Forrester wrote the close bond of Jaimie and her sister - love each other, but fall out big time. Reminds me of my relationship with my sister!! It's very rare that a first novel doesn't have editing issues - parts of the writing that could have been culled to tighten the story, but this didn't need it. I was very taken with all the characters, and even the secondary ones were well drawn and rounded. I can't wait to read the next book. This book I can see I will read over and over again.
