I’m delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for Love Heart Lane by Christie Barlow and sharing my review today. First of all let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
Welcome to Love Heart Lane…
When Flick Simons returns to the small village of Heartcross she only expected to stay for a few days. The white-washed cottages of Love Heart Lane might be her home, but the place holds too many painful memories, and of one man in particular – Fergus Campbell.
When a winter storm sweeps in, the only bridge connecting the village to the main land is swept away! As the villagers pull together, Flick finds herself welcomed back by the friends she once left behind. And as the snow begins to melt, maybe there is a chance that Fergus’s heart will thaw too…
Well what a heartwarming and cosy read this is! In Love Heart Lane we meet Flick as she returns to the village she grew up in. However it isn’t all plain sailing and when disaster strikes Flick finds herself right in the middle of things. Now one of the wonderful things about this story is that the villagers really come together and there is a real sense of community spirit. So you get that extra warmth and uplifting vibe the more the story progresses.
Flick is a very interesting character, if I’m honest I wasn’t sure about her to begin with but Christie Barlow did a wonderful job of bringing her character to life. Revealing her personality bit by bit and showing her vulnerability, her flaws but also her strength and love for the people she cares about. There is a brilliant mix of characters who all bring something to the story. Let’s just say by the end of the book I had got quite attached to all of them so you can guess how happy I was to discover that this book is part of a new series. There were the possibilities of second chances, new beginnings and a lovely dose of hope!
Love Heart Lane is a story filled with friendships, community spirit and even a little bit of romance.
