Review of The Vintage Cinema Club by Jane Linfoot - Four **

Review of The Vintage Cinema Club by Jane Linfoot - Four **


Meet 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.


I enjoyed this book immensely. The main characters, Dida, Luce and Izzy are all very different but compliment each other so well. The story revolves around the vintage store in an old cinema and the trials and tribulations of their lives, as well as the problems relating to the business.

The main theme is the story of Izzy and Xander and how they fight their demons to be together. It is really well written and I felt for them both at times. Luce and Olly take a back seat to this unfolding romance. Dida has a very unhappy marriage but begins to break away towards the end of the book, I was really rooting for her!

Great book and I'll certainly read more Jane Linfoot.

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
