Synopsis

Peppermint Kiss by Kelly McKain

Abbie's life feels like one big rain cloud since her parents split up. Now she lives with her mum and sisters in a grotty flat. Only new friends, Ben Summer, and gorgeous guitar-playing Marco, offer Abbie a silver lining. But then Abbie has the bright idea to turn her family's fortunes around. She has always loved making her own beauty products. Could opening a new business - the Rainbow Beauty parlour - bring her family a pot of gold and heal their hearts too?

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
