Emily Prescott’s life isn’t going to plan. Her dreams of starting a family with fireman boyfriend Greg and opening up her own bakery in London feel like they will never come true. So when a wedding invite arrives from her oldest friend, Beth Williams, Emily is thrilled. Not only will she get to return to her childhood home in Scotland, but best of all – Beth wants her to bake the wedding cake!
However, her excitement is cut short when she discovers that Greg has cheated on her. Devastated by his betrayal, Emily flees to Glendale Hall, Beth’s grand estate in the Highlands, and tries to distracts herself with helping with the wedding plans, but that’s not easy when Greg keeps hounding her to forgive him. Then she’s introduced to Glendale’s new young and handsome vicar Brodie, and things become even more complicated.

Thank you to Rachel for letting me be part of this tour and to Hera for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I loved the first book in the Glendale series and I couldn’t wait to return!
In this book, we return to Glendale Hall just in time for Beth and Drew’s wedding. This time however our main character is Emily, Beth’s oldest friend. After her boyfriend cheats on her she needs a break and where better than Glendale Hall! There is some sort of magic at Glendale and this is just where Emily needs to be. I really liked Emily and I loved being part of her journey. I guessed early on where Emily would end up but there was quite a story of how she gets there.
It was great to return to Glendale and see how much the village had grown since the previous book finished. I also loved catching up with the other characters too. Beth, Izzy and Drew, Rory, Heather and their little one, Caroline and John. All the characters have had so much going on it was lovely to see what they had been up to.
Vicky has a way of capturing your whole attention. I struggled to put this book down. There were quite a few characters but Vicky never makes it seem like too many. I hope we have another reason to return to Glendale because I don’t know if I am quite ready to say goodbye just yet!
