A Home at Honeysuckle Farm

Thank you to Rachel @rararesources for inviting me to take part.
A Home at Honeysuckle Farm
A family secret
One shocking argument and ten-year-old Alice Parker’s world was turned upside down. Her peaceful life at Honeysuckle Farm in the quiet rural village of Brook Bridge swapped for the bustling metropolis of New York City. Alice’s life was changed forever…
A second chance
Now, thirteen years later, Alice’s American dream is over. With her life in tatters, there is only one place Alice wants to be… home at Honeysuckle Farm. So, when Alice learns her beloved Grandie is ill, she knows this is her last chance to heal the family rift.
A forever home?
But secrets still swirl in Brook Bridge, and Alice is no closer to discovering the truth. And for some reason her new friendship with local heartthrob Sam Reid seems to be making the locals tense.
Sick of the lies Alice knows it’s time to lay the past to rest once and for all. But could the truth ruin her hopes of ever calling Honeysuckle Farm home again?
Alice Parker spent the first ten years of her life at Honeysuckle Farm until an argument between her mother and grandfather broke out and Alice was forced to leave with her mother without explanation.
Thirteen years later in New York, Alice receives an email from a childhood friend who informs her that back in England, her Grandie is ill in hospital. Alice is sick of struggling to make ends meet and grabs the chance to return home to Honeysuckle Farm to be with her beloved grandfather.
Alice arrives to a warm welcome and an offer from her Grandie that is hard to refuse. However, the locals of Brook Bridge seem to know far more about her family’s past than she does, and what exactly drove her mother so far away from this idyllic place?
The characters are warm and charming and Christie Barlow entices you into the story, then keeps you waiting with bated breath, until she is ready to reveal the astonishing secrets.
Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources, Christie Barlow and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of A Home at Honeysuckle Farm in exchange for an honest review.
