Nice mix of new characters balanced against our old favourites from the Cherry Tree Cafe, Skylark Farm and the Market. It's always a good sign when you are reading and come across a familiar character (Jemma and Lizzie I am looking at you, along with townie Amber) and you immediately recall their past history. The characters live and breathe and it is kind of embarrassing to admit that I do feel like I know these fictional people.
Fortunately Ms Swain has stuck to what she knows best in this latest tale in the saga - people. Although there are lots of things happening here first and foremost this is a tale about the people involved. Told in, the now expected, first person we see the events unfold from the position of our main protagonist Lottie who is at times naive, gullible, feisty, introverted, lazy and lost but who is never boring or feels like she has just been stamped out of some sort of master book of character traits. This holds true for the 2 major characters Matt and Will and I will admit to wondering even 75% of the way through which one would be the best for Lottie - even though at 30% I was sure who it should be. Luckily 30% me was right but I now need to give 75% me a good talking too!
In case it isn't clear from the above I read on an e-reader so always know how far through a book I am. Although, in this instance it didn't really matter as I read it in one shot only breaking off to make a quick cheese on toast lunch and then back to curling up with a cat on my knee and an exasperated husband who was trying to get a conversation out of me but couldn't raise more than a distracted grunt.
I am now going to put reminders to myself to keep checking for new books from Ms Swain - I just have to know what happens with Mags and Liam (and their intriguing son Ed) and definitely what happens with David and Angela - nothing like a later in life to romance to tear you up after all. But, they aren't newcomers to Wynbury so maybe I will be out of luck but a middle-aged woman can hope can't she?
If you are looking for a romantic, funny and lifelike book then I urge you to try any of the Wynbury books as I am certain you will not be disappointed. They are in the tradition of the best that Katie Fforde and Trisha Ashley publish so you are in very safe hands!
Having read orevious books set in the same village of Wynbridge I recognised some of the characters. However you don't bed to have read the previous books to read this one, each book deals with different characters.
This book centers on Lottie, the 'adopted' grand daughter of Gwen. Gwen recently passed away abd, unbeknowns to Lottie had left her the cottage she lived in, and some surprises to.
Then there are Will (local vet) & Matt (local builder), both vying for her attention, but not all is as it seems. Someone isn't telling the whole truth, but why? and what will the consequences be.
Settle down in a comfy chair, with a long drink, and savour the delights of this fantastic book.
I cannot wait to read the next one. ..
Good characters and plot line. A really lovely read. Looking forward to reading Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells at the Christmas Fair next.
This story follows Lottie who inherits Cuckoo Cottage from an old family friend and heads off to start a new life and to pursue a new dream. Is the cottage the country dream or a money pit. With the local vet and a rowdy dog in hand surely the local builder can help salvage her dream.
I love Lottie, she is fun and a dreamer but I do find myself wanting to shout at her and have one of those conversations were you tell your friend to wake up in the nicest possible way.
I look forward to returning to Wynbridge soon for another adventure
