Return to the Little Cottage on the Hill by Emma Davies
Today I am thrilled to be joining the blog tour for Return to the Little Cottage on the Hill by Emma Davies. Thank you to Kim from Bookouture for asking me to take part and for providing a copy, which I have reviewed honestly.
Return to the Little Cottage on the Hill
An absolutely gorgeous, feel-good romance novel (The Little Cottage Series Book 3)
The climb up the hill takes her past sweet-smelling pink roses in full bloom and leads her to an utterly breathtaking view. Megan is happy to be home at last, but will her relationship have survived the journey?
It has been a difficult few years for thirty-year-old Megan Forrester, completing her apprenticeship and trying to maintain a long-distance relationship with her gorgeous boyfriend, Liam.
She’s returned home to compete in a local craft competition. The prize is the chance to design beautiful new gates for the estate at the bottom of the hill, a job which could secure her future in the village forever.
As the contest gets underway, Megan is devastated when a rival design turns out to be almost identical to hers. Someone in the close-knit community must have leaked her sketches, but who? Is it the same person spreading heartbreaking rumours about Liam?
Down to the last few left in the competition, Megan throws her heart and soul into a show-stopping final piece… but will winning even matter when the truth about Liam is finally revealed?
Do you adore feel-good stories that leave you with a smile on your face? This heart-warming romance is a perfect escape for readers who flew through novels by Jenny Colgan, Lucy Diamond and Debbie Johnson.
This is the first book I have read by Emma Davies and I can confirm that she will be an author I look out for in the future. I realise that I am rather late to the party because this is the third in The Little Cottage Series. However, if the other books are anything like this little gem I will be catching up soon.
It was the stunning cover which attracted my attention. There was the beautiful chocolate box cottage with it’s glorious thatched roof and the garden overflowing with pretty flowers. When I saw that it was a ‘feel good’ novel I just couldn’t wait to see what there was in store.
The main characters are Maddie, Seth, Trixie, Tom, and Clara… the crew who make the magic happen at Joy’s Acre!. They are all incredibly warm and good-hearted souls. I just wish the holiday cottages were real because I would love to stay there, walk around the garden and sample Trixie’s delicious home cooking.
We are introduced to Megan who returns home to Shropshire to take part in a craft competition. She has worked tirelessly for her blacksmith apprenticeship, possibly to the detriment of her relationship with boyfriend, Liam.
Meanwhile, a television series is being filmed at Joy’s Acre and the arrival of the handsome Declan turns one of the girl’s heads!
This was an easy read but the characters, location and storyline make it a book which is hard to put down. Emma Davies writing flows beautifully and she knows just how to put the right amount of secrets and suspense into the story. I can’t wait to visit the cottages and residents of Joy Acres again.
After many years as a finance manager she now writes full time, and is far happier playing with words than numbers. She lives with her husband, three children, and two guinea pigs in rural Shropshire where she writes in all the gaps in between real life. It’s a county she adores, her love of its beautiful people and landscapes providing endless inspiration for her books, and in fact the only thing that would make Shropshire more idyllic is if it were by the sea.
