Blurb; Nell Chapman has always assumed that one (or the other) of her twin sons would help run her antique shop once they finished university. The boys, however, have other plans, when they announce they’re going backpacking for a year, leaving Nell feeling bereft and lonely.
Not only that, but with their father (her lying, cheating ex-husband) back on the scene and demanding half of the business, there might not be anything left for her boys to help manage when they return.
However, she hasn’t counted on the unexpected support of local landscape artist, Silas Long. And neither has she considered the possibility she might fall in love again – especially since Silas is so distant and moody, and has his own cross to bear.
Should Nell take a chance and risk her heart, or should she leave well alone? And why has Silas painted her portrait if he doesn’t feel anything for her?
My Review; Book three in the Ticklemore series but would read fine as a Standalone. I have been with this series since the start and this time we find ourselves in the treasure trove with Nell. It was like returning home to familiar characters and this cute little town.
In this story we focus on Nell the owner of the treasure trove and Silas the local artist, who soon find themselves together over a painting that could be worth a lot of money. But with Nells ex husband on the scene demanding half her business Nell is under pressure and stressed. Silas is a dark horse with a hidden past but he could just be the hero Nell needs right now.
An adorable story! Uplifting. Romance. Cute. A brilliant read. I really enjoyed it. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me. I can’t wait to see what this little town brings us next.
