I’m delighted to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for gorgeous and uplifting feel good novel The Impulse Purchase by Veronica Henry. Thank you to Anne Cater and Orion Books for inviting me to be a part of this very special tour.
For this tour we have been invited to read alongside a loved one to reflect the multigenerational themes in this book.
I decided to share the book with my mum as I loved the relationship between Maggie and Cherry so much that I wanted to share the experience of reading The Impulse Purchase with her. The multigenerational themes of the story really did make me think and I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent within the pages of this wonderful book.
About the book:
With this, Veronica’s 23rd novel, she introduces us to Cherry, Maggie and Rose – mother, daughter and granddaughter, each with their own hopes, dreams and even sorrows. They have always been close, so when, in a moment of impulse, Cherry buys a gorgeous but rundown pub in the village she grew up in, it soon becomes a family affair.
All three women uproot themselves and move to Rushbrook, deep in the heart of Somerset, to take over The Swan and restore it to its former glory. Cherry is at the helm, Maggie is in charge of the kitchen, and Rose tends the picturesque garden that leads down to the river.
Before long, the locals are delighted to find the beating heart of the village is back, bringing all kinds of surprises through the door. Could Cherry’s impulse purchase change all their lives – and bring everyone the happiness they’re searching for?

The Impulse Purchase is the gorgeous and uplifting new novel by Veronica Henry. It’s a beautifully written multigenerational story that feels like a warm hug in book form. It introduces us to Cherry, Maggie and Rose, three generations of the same family, who decide to go into business together after Cherry makes an impulse purchase that has the potential to change the course of their lives forever.
The Impulse Purchase is a heartwarming family drama that I thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end, leaving me feeling bereft and not wanting to say goodbye to these wonderful characters as I reluctantly turned the final page. It is very much a strong female, character driven story, with multigenerational themes that explore the relationships between mother, daughter and granddaughter. It’s an easy, gentle read that drew me in from the outset, with Cherry, Maggie and Rose all stealing a piece of my heart as the story continued.
Veronica Henry’s writing is as captivating as always, with warm, likable characters you can’t help but fall in love with. With a heartwarming, often moving storyline and a picturesque setting, there isn’t anything I didn’t love about The Impulse Purchase. Pure escapism at its very best.
