As sweet and satisfying as strawberries and cream! This British summertime, get out in the garden with Rebecca Pugh’s sparkling debut novel.
Home is where the heart is…
Jessica McAdams has never belonged anywhere; never truly felt at home. Of course, what did she expect from parents who never made her feel welcome in her own house? Leaving her life in London to return home to the charming country village of Bluebell Hill is harder than she thought. Especially as she never considered she’d be returning under such heart wrenching circumstances…
Clearing out the stunning and imposing Bluebell House after her parents’ death is difficult for Jessica—they never had the best relationship and now it’s too late. Yet spending time in the house that was never a home, having afternoon tea with dear old friend Esme—and sharing hot, sizzling kisses with delectable gardener Rueben!—opens Jessica’s eyes to the potential of Bluebell House… Could this big old, beautiful manor really be her forever home? Is Bluebell Hill where her heart is, has always been?
Jessica soon dares to dream of her very own home with delicious Rueben by her side. But when a deep, dark secret of Bluebell House is unearthed, Jessica’s world is turned upside down…
Will Jessica ever find where her heart truly lies?
An emotional tale of self-discovery, taking chances and romance! Rebecca’s unique British voice feels like coming home again and again.
I’d like to thank the publishers and the author for an arc in return for an honest review.
I was so excited for Rebecca leading up to the publication of her debut novel, its been a vision of Beccas for so long, she is an avid reader and has had the dream of having her own book published, this dream has now become a reality. I am thrilled to be part of the blogtour promoting this book.
What a delightful and utterly gorgeous debut novel by Rebecca Pugh. I devoured this story so quickly. Rebecca’s words flowed freely on the page and I found myself wanting and needing to turn the pages and read more. Rebecca has certainly created a perfect ‘book boyfriend’ in Reuben. When Reuben’s character was first described in the story I thought he sounded delicious and I could see his charm would be irresistible to the reader.
At the start of the book Jessica, the main character, had just been dealt with some traumatic news of her parents’ death. Jessica hadn’t returned to the family home in many years following her sudden departure when she was 18. Mystery was surrounding her reasons to leave home and stay away. However, Jessica had no choice but to return to Bluebell House. This journey was a difficult one. The walls of her family home held many secrets, was Jessica ready to unearth these secrets, will she ever be ready?
The description of Bluebell Hill and it’s surroundings sounded idyllic, there is nothing more beautiful than nature at it’s finest. Rebecca Pugh’s visualisation of Bluebell House was easy to picture with the wonderful portrayal of this stunning property. I particularly loved the sound of the stained glass window.
Jessica had certainly gone on a different quest when she returned to her family home however, this journey would be a life affirming one, a journey of chance, a journey of possible new beginnings and new friendships.
A great debut novel that was heart warming, sexy, intriguing and beautiful. I look forward to more from this new aspiring author and wish Rebecca lots of success.
A gorgeous, romantic, feel good 5/5* read.
