Fall in back in love with life in this gripping read about fate and second chances.
The eagerly awaited new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author.
Izzy has broken off her engagement to her feckless fiancée Kieran and returned to her childhood home – the sleepy village of Halfhidden.
She soon realizes that life in the village is anything but peaceful – for one thing she’s living with her mad aunt Debo and her pack of dogs, and for another, Izzy has a lot of unanswered questions.
When she was a teenager, Izzy was involved in a terrible accident, involving various inhabitants of Halfhidden. As she sets out to discover what actually happened on the night of the accident, she realizes that her painful past is actually standing in the way of her future happiness. So when a handsome stranger comes to Halfhidden will she let love back into her life?
I’m very aware that I often start a review by telling you that I LOVE a certain author but, I’m sorry, I’m going to do it again!! I have somehow only managed to read one of Trisha Ashley’s books before and this one has made me question why that is? I LOVE her writing style, the comedy, the animals, the magical villages!
This story was fab! There was no “hint” at a romance or any subtlety – you know as soon as the male character is mentioned how this will end. But you know what, that’s perfect!! Sometimes you want a book that keeps you in a will they, won’t they scenario. Other times you just want to know that even though you will encounter twists and turns, they will be together at the end – these books make us feel frustrated with missed kissing opportunities!
I loved the village setting, the loved the animals – I want a Babybelle! Heck, I even liked Dan towards the end! Fantastic book with a brilliant air of magic around it. The story also keeps you gripped with the flashback memories/dreams that Izzy experiences and I love that you don’t find out what really happened until the end and I love the closure that particular element of the story is given.
I hope Trisha Ashley writes a short story catch up on this book in the future.
