My Thoughts

I reviewed Coming Home To Glendale Hall last year and it was one of my favourite reads of 2019.

This time the story is concentrated around Emily, who travels to Glendale Hall in Scotland to attend her friend Beth’s wedding.  Emily was a real friend to Beth when she appeared on her doorstep, homeless, pregnant and alone. Now, the tables have reversed and it is Emily who needs the help of a friend.

All the previous characters are there, with an added extra, a hunky vicar called Brodie who really catches Emily’s eye.

I love the location of Glendale Hall, the Scottish mansion with a host of warm, caring characters. Emily frustrated me at times, in my opinion, she gave her boyfriend Greg far too many chances. I wanted her to surround herself with people who love her and to achieve her dream of owning her own bakery. I was so eager to find out what choices Emily makes that I devoured the book quickly and will really miss the residents of Glendale.

There is romance, weddings, a thoroughly enjoyable storyline and lots and lots of delicious cake!

This can be read as a standalone, but please don’t miss out on Coming Home To Glendale Hall, it’s a perfect winter romance.

Thank you to Hera Books via NetGalley for a copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.
