Love Heart Lane – where friends are there for you no matter what
A second chance…
When her grandfather Marley passes away Grace Power discovers she’s been left the beautiful but crumbling estate of Heartcross Castle. As a single mum of three, Grace has no idea what she’s going to do with it – but who can say no to a roof over their kids’ heads and a chance to get away from past hurts?
And a forever home
Heartcross Castle is full of secrets – especially a lost security deposit box that holds the truth to everything… But when celebrity chef Andrew Glossop sets his eyes on the castle and, to make matters worse, mistakes Grace as the new housekeeper, Grace tells him there is absolutely NO CHANCE he is getting his hands on her home.
Devastated to have got it so wrong, Andrew will do anything to make it up to her – but is she willing to listen?

Thank you to Rachel for letting me take part in this tour and to One More Chapter for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I have read a few books in this series and I love a castle so I knew I needed to read this book.

Grace Power is one hell of a woman. She has been through hell and back in her life but somehow she’s still smiling. I am in awe of her resilience and resourcefulness. She is truly admirable.

Grace’s three boys are adorable. They sure are cheeky at times but they really melted my heart more than once. They are very sweet boys.

I loved the Castle. Even in its run-down state is sounded magnificent. What a privilege to live somewhere so beautiful! I loved how the local community all railled around to help Grace and her boys. To see these people out of the goodness of their hearts open their arms again to Grace and welcome her home was beautiful and then to go and help her as they did. Oh, it got me.

I really enjoyed this book. Christie has shown us that it’s not about how much is in your pocket but about what you can offer. With a little bit of kindness and some savvy bargains you have everything you need.
