Fall head-over-heels in love with the beautiful new novel from bestselling author Holly Martin and let The Little Village of Happiness warm your heart and make your spirits soar.
Willow McKay needs a fresh start. Her recent break-up may not have left her heartbroken but it’s certainly wounded her pride. Desperate to escape the whispers and stares of her town’s gossips, an advert offering homes in a picturesque village in the grounds of a majestic castle on the Cornish coast sounds like just what she needs. Without thinking twice Willow applies for a cottage and packs up her life for the village of Happiness.
But when Willow arrives she finds a crumbling ruin and ramshackle cottages, nothing like the pretty picture the advert had boasted. It seems Happiness was too good to be true. That is until she meets the incredibly handsome estate manager Andrew Harrington…
His passion for restoring the village to its former glory is contagious and soon they are working together to bring happiness back to Happiness. And as sparks fly between them Willow can feel herself falling. But Andrew is holding something back.
Can Willow risk her heart again? And will they succeed in transforming the old village to its original beauty before it’s too late?
Get swept away to the sun-kissed Cornish coast with this gorgeous love story, perfect for fans of Jill Mansell, Miranda Dickinson and Lucy Diamond.
Thank you to Holly for my copy of this book and for letting me take part in this tour. I love Holly’s writing and I just had to read her latest book.
In this story, we follow Willow as she finds her feet in her new home. Willow is in need of a fresh start and has just moved to Happiness. Happiness is a small village which has been in need of a bit of TLC for quite a while now and Willow has just the right ideas to help. I really liked Willow. She is creative, empathetic and kind.
Of course along the way Willow meets a hunk of a man. I quickly fell for Andrew just like Willow. Andrew has been living in the village for a few months. He was hired as the estate manager for the village. Andrew is holding back something. This element could have been really risky but I think Holly did an excellent job. She researched the hell out of it and it paid off!
This book is full of love and community spirit. I love the secret society and I loved how it grew to the whole village. It was really heart warming to see.
I really enjoyed this story and I cannot wait to return later in the year.
