TGIF book lovers!
I have been sick for the last three days and I have just about had enough! Thank goodness for all my books to keep me company and cheer me up! And this really was the perfect book to cozy up with and whisk me away from sneezing and coughing!🤒🤧
Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation to this tour and to Christie Barlow for her wonderful wonderful story!💙
Love Heart Lane
Welcome to Love Heart Lane…
When Flick Simons returns to the small village of Heartcross she only expected to stay for a few days. The white-washed cottages of Love Heart Lane might be her home, but the place holds too many painful memories, and of one man in particular – Fergus Campbell.
When a winter storm sweeps in, the only bridge connecting the village to the main land is swept away! As the villagers pull together, Flick finds herself welcomed back by the friends she once left behind. And as the snow begins to melt, maybe there is a chance that Fergus’s heart will thaw too…
Is your book part of a series / standalone? There will be more books based around Love Heart Lane – even though this is the first one in the series they can be read stand a lobe too.
A heartwarming and heartbreaking story full of hope and second chances!
I am such a sucker for a small town romance especially when it’s set in the UK! This is the first book in the Heart Lane series and it is indeed full of heart! Christie Barlow has a way of making words come to life, enveloping you in the story completely… by the end of the book I felt as though I was friends with these characters and had visited this small charming Scottish town….
Felicity returns home after 8 years…. when she gets home she is greeted by a blizzard and a torrential rain storm that leaves the town isolated… this tragic act of nature brings the community together… being cut off from the rest of the world causes some problems you never think of… in the midst of all this Felicity runs into her long lost love Fergus Who is less than thrilled to see her…. so will the small village of Heart Cross Capture Felicity’s heart again? And will felicity and Fergus find their way back home to each other?
A brilliantly told tale that will tug at your heart strings, Full of so many wonderful characters and heartwarming scenes… there is also some tragedy in this book that I wasn’t necessarily expecting, but I thought it was handled well and it added additional depth to the story…. I absolutely cannot wait to see what these characters get up to next!
A lovely story that will fill your whole heart with hope and love! Recommend!
🎵 Music Running through my mind!
*** this is the song that ran through my head throughout this book, doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the story, but I will be pairing my books with songs going forward!
Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home
