What if we’re all just searching for something?
Anna Stewart is lost. After barely surviving a car accident as a teenager, Anna is scared of settling. Flitting between jobs, boyfriends and homes whenever she gets bored, she has no idea what the future holds. Then her brother Brodie, minister of Glendale, suggests she moves to the beautiful Scottish village, lining up a housekeeper job for her at Glendale Hall.
Out of options, Anna agrees to take the job just for the summer. Once at the hall, her culinary skills impress everyone, and she agrees to give Hilltop Farm’s new manager, Cameron, cooking lessons. Sparks fly between Anna and the handsome Scot, but Cameron keeps pushing Anna away, and Anna definitely isn't looking for love. But it's wedding season at Glendale Hall, and Anna is about to discover that her new home has a way of working its magic on even the coldest of hearts.
Will she really be able to just walk away at the end of summer, or could Anna have finally found a place to belong?
It’s summertime so pack your bags and escape to beautiful Highlands village of Glendale with this gorgeously uplifting, romantic read. Fans of Milly Johnson, Heidi Swain and Holly Martin will love this charming romance.
Thank you to Rachel for letting me be part of this tour and to Victoria and Hera for my copy of this book. I adore Glendale Hall and I was very excited to be back here.
The main character in this book is Anna. Anna is Brodie’s younger sister, for those who have read the previous books you will already be aware of Brodie. This is the 4th book in the series but could be read as a standalone.
Anna hasn’t stayed in one place for very long since she was 18. She never lets anyone get too close. She is a bit lost and is full of misplaced guilt. She has been alone for so long she doesn’t know how to let people help. I just wanted to tell her it’s okay to take help now and then.
Cameron has been in previous books. He’s the strong silent type. Like Anna he has some misplaced guilt too. It was very sweet to see these two connect over this and overcome their issues together.
I really loved all the side characters in this book. It was so lovely to catch up with Beth and the gang. I was so happy to see Heather and Rory get married, they have both been through so much to get to their wedding day. It weas nice to meet new people from the village too.
I really enjoyed seeing more of Brodie and his family. It was very interesting to see what led him to be a minister and how it shaped his life.
I enjoyed my trip back to Glendale. It was a lovely escape to the highlands.
