Lorna Ferguson has dreamt of opening her own bed and breakfast in the village of Glendale for as long as she’d pictured falling in love. While her love life remains frankly hopeless, Lorna is determined to secure Dove House – the home she imagined living in as a child – to start this new venture with her family.
Along with brother Adam, Lorna starts restoring the house to its Art Deco glory, but faced with a whole host of renovation problems and their money fast running out, they worry that Dove House will never be ready to open in the New Year.
When a mystery man turns up, needing to fulfil a promise he made to his dying father and find the object he left at Dove House many years ago, Lorna’s heart goes out to him. But what they find there is going to change both of their lives forever.
Facing problems at every turn, and distracted by her heart, Lorna is going to need all the magic that her beloved Glendale can supply to make all her dreams come true…
An uplifting, inspirational and romantic read that will warm your heart. Fans of Jenny Colgan and Heidi Swain will love this.
Thank you to Victoria for my copy of this book and to Rachel for letting me take part in this tour. This is the 5th book sent in Glendale. All books can be read as standalones as they all follow different main characters.
This time we meet Lorna. Lorna is an easy character to like and root for. I found it easy to identify with her coming from a large family too. I absolutely loved the idea of running a B&B. I mean it’s too much physical work and much too sociable for me, but I love the idea. I also loved hearing all the restoration stories and imagining how Dove House went from the disrepair at the beginning to the restored Art Deco version at the end.
Victoria’s books give me that real comfort feeling when I read them. I love to get a blanket and a hot drink and snuggle down into the fictional world she has created. I loved being back in Glendale and the autumnal start of the book is perfect for this time of year. I love autumn and I love Christmas and this book gave me both!
I absolutely loved this visit to Glendale and I hope we return again soon.
