Love Heart Lane
By Christie Barlow
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…
There will be more books based around Love Heart Lane – even though this is the first one in the series they can be read stand alone too.
What a charming, well-written story about love, family, friendships, and going home!
Things aren’t going well for Felicity Simons in her professional life or her personal life. With changes at her job, her heart just isn’t in it much anymore. She keeps thinking about her home in Heartcross, a village in the Scottish Highlands, more and more. It held some of her best memories and and some of her worst memories. She is beginning to realize the place she wanted to escape from is the place where she wants to return. She decides to return after her sweet grandmother’s death to support her mother, and finally face the man, Fergus, who is the source of her painful memories.
What the author, Christie Barlow, gives us is a sweet, well-written book. I loved the setting and absolutely fell in love with the characters. Barlow creates a charming little village. Her descriptive writing made me feel as if I was there with Flick and Fergus.
She also created such a great cast characters. I adored Felicity and Fergus. Her secondary characters really added depth and color to the book. For example, although Felicity’s grandmother was gone, she was still such a central part of the storyline. I loved the memories of Felicity and her. There were also other characters I came to love like Esme (she stole my heart) and Felicity’s mother. Each of them tugged on my heart in a different way. I can’t wait to see which characters will be featured in the next book.
This isn’t just about Felicity and Fergus’s romance. It’s about realizing what and who is important in your life. Thank you, Christie Barlow, for taking me on that journey with Felicity. If you are looking for a sweet romance with a lovely setting and great characters, you can’t go wrong with Love Heart Lane. I’m looking forward to reading more in the series.
