My Thoughts

Rating: 5 out of 5.

If there’s a book that I’d like to spend a rainy afternoon with, steaming cup of coffee in hand, it’s this one!

The Cottage of New Beginnings gives you warm, fuzzy feelings as you laugh, cry, and hope with Annie and Jon. The MCs are well-rounded people with serious aspirations, unshakeable faith, and complicated pasts that color their actions and behavior. They’re not just good-looking characters with great fashion sense.

The author has a knack for vividly describing the settings and the people. I could imagine it all clearly–like watching a movie in your head. She’s not just stringing adjectives along in a sentence. She hasn’t filled pages with fluff. She’s simply woven magic!

I was especially impressed by descriptions of Annie’s cooking. I could almost taste the food and feel the contentment of the characters after they eat her meals.

This is a book that I will be re-reading and I urge you to pick it up as soon as you can. 🙂

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.
