Happy Thursday everybody!
It is a gorgeous day the perfect day to share with you my thoughts on this lovely story with a springy title! 💐
The Cottage on Wildflower Lane
Esther’s life isn’t perfect (whose is?) – but she’s happy enough living in her little flat with her boyfriend, Josh.
But that’s about to change.
Bored out of her mind in work, she wishes that something, anything, would happen to liven her life up.
Unfortunately, her wish comes true when Josh calls her from the airport to tell her he’s going to work in a bar in Spain, and she’s not invited, Esther is devastated, and her unhappiness is compounded when she discovers she can actually view the bar via a webcam link and watch him chatting up other girls.
But when she inadvertently clicks on a link to another webcam which shows a pretty cottage and the rather hunky man who lives in it, her interest is piqued and she wishes she could get to know him.
Wishes don’t really come true, though – do they…?
This was such a sweet, charming, and feel good story! Esther gets dumped by phone by her tool of a boyfriend. He calls her from the airport to tell her not only is he leaving her but he is leaving the country to go to Spain and work in a bar. When Esther goes online to find the website for the bar she also stumbles across a WebCam with a live feed inside the bar. So Esther does what we all would probably do, tortures herself by watching her ex-boyfriend hook up with other girls. Ester becomes a little obsessed, but fortunately one time when there was a lull in the action at the bar she comes across a WebCam feed of a lovely cottage with a handsome resident. What follows is a fun story filled with coincidences, misunderstandings, charm, wit, and romance.
Such a sweet story that made me smile! Ester was a great character; I found her to be so relatable, but I really wanted to get a hold of her and talk some sense to her. I am so grateful there weren’t WebCams back in my days of heartache, I would probably be glued to the screen torturing myself just like Esther. Unlike Esther I probably would not stumble across a cute cottage with an even cuter boy who then I coincidentally end up working for. This was the perfect little afternoon romantic escape.

Author Bio –
Liz Davies writes feel-good, light-hearted stories with a hefty dose of romance, a smattering of humour, and a great deal of love.
She’s married to her best friend, has one grown-up daughter, and when she isn’t scribbling away in the notepad she carries with her everywhere (just in case inspiration strikes), you’ll find her searching for that perfect pair of shoes. She loves to cook but isn’t very good at it, and loves to eat – she’s much better at that! Liz also enjoys walking (preferably on the flat), cycling (also on the flat), and lots of sitting around in the garden on warm, sunny days.
She currently lives with her family in Wales, but would ideally love to buy a camper can and travel the world in it.
