As it’s the start of October I am getting excited about what I call snuggle reads. These are comforting romance reads which you can dive into whilst curled up on your sofa…with a soft blanket over your legs and a cup of soothing tea on the little table beside you.
This book by Suzanne Snow is the first of my snuggle reads. Gorgeous cover and the premise ticked all my boxes; crumbling cottage, one broken heart, a village full of interesting characters and a handsome but moody local hero.
Here’s the blurb;
One crumbling cottage. One broken heart. A chance to start over?
When Annie returns to Thorndale, the village where she spent much of her childhood, she’s looking for a new start. All she wants to do is fix up the cottage her godmother left her, and fix up her broken heart.
When she clashes with local hero, Jon, Annie can’t help but wonder if coming back to Thorndale was a mistake. The village has clearly changed and the last thing she needs is more drama. But avoiding the distractingly handsome Jon is proving impossible, especially when Thorndale seems to be conspiring to throw them together…
Annie is looking for a fresh start with zero romance – but what if the only way to learn to trust again is to take a risk on love?
The perfect cosy romance for fans of Julie Houston, Victoria Walters and Trisha Ashley.
Here’s my review:
I enjoyed this charming romance set in the fictional village of Thorndale. The cosy setting for me was one of the standouts, gorgeous descriptions which helped whisk me away.
It was a lovely slow build romance between Annie and Jon which started after a few misunderstandings and some looks of longing. The romance had an old fashioned feel to it which was nice. I also felt Annie and Jon were quite old fashioned too in their views and this was refreshing.
This is an easy and enjoyable read. Perfect for those who want a charming romance and a happy ending.
