ABOUT THIS BOOK
Welcome to Love Heart Lane…
When Flick Simons returns to the small village of Heartcross she only expected to stay for a few days. The white-washed cottages of Love Heart Lane might be her home, but the place holds too many painful memories, and of one man in particular – Fergus Campbell.
When a winter storm sweeps in, the only bridge connecting the village to the main land is swept away! As the villagers pull together, Flick finds herself welcomed back by the friends she once left behind. And as the snow begins to melt, maybe there is a chance that Fergus’s heart will thaw too…
LOVE HEART LANE by Christie Barlow is every bit as delightful and colourful as its stunning cover and I devoured this heartwarming story in a few hours.
When Flick Simon's grandmother passes away, Flick knows that she must return to her childhood home of Heartcross in Scotland and spend some quality time with her mother who needs her. But having abandoned her old friends and the only man she has ever really loved almost eight years ago, Flick isn't sure how welcome she will be. As she settles back into her home most people are happy to see her and enfold her back easily into the community, all but Fergus who cannot forget how she destroyed his heart that night long ago. But when there is a crisis in the village Flick finds herself front and centre in helping to piece it all back together and a tentative friendship with Fergus cements the fact that she loves him completely. But Fergus has his little daughter to think about and he will not let anyone into his life that may hurt her one day ... not even Flick. Can Love Heart Lane live up to its name and mend the damage from the past or is it simply too late to go back?
Engaging, emotional, and enjoyable from beginning to end, LOVE HEART LANE by Christie Barlow is the type of book that will drag you out of a tired or grumpy mood and set you up for the day. There is laughter and tears, friendship and jealousy, and a community spirit that would make your heart swell with pride throughout. I loved the setting and the image that the author painted for me and I can easily say that there was nothing that I didn't love about this story. Definitely on my list for best books this year!
