*BLOG TOUR* Heartcross Castle – Christie Barlow ★★★★

Blurb; 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?

My Review; This is the first book I have read by this author and I need to start by saying this is book seven in the love heart lane series. Now it did read fine as a Standalone for myself but would probably be best read in order. With a few mentions of places from previous books and probably some familiar characters too.

Heartcross Castle is such a cosy, uplifting, romantic and heart warming read. It’s a story of a new beginning, a second chance. Coming home. I loved all the characters in this story, especially the community spirit and friendships. Parts had me laughing out loud. The ending was just perfect. I don’t have a bad word to say.

Main character Grace is such a strong, determined, brave and independent character. She won’t let anything stop her happiness or her boys happiness. I loved her. Then bring in rich Chef Andrew will they clash and collide? How will she deal with him when she’s surviving on pennies?

A beautiful story. Perfect setting, gorgeous castle and a cute town. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me. Cannot wait to go back through this series and see where it takes me. Very impressed.
