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…
I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.
I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Christie Barlow’s latest novel: Love Heart Lane.
Yay, I’ve finally read one of Christie Barlow’s stories. I’ve read so many great reviews of Christie’s books and I have purchased books following these reviews but I’ve not had the chance yet to read. However, I think I’ve started with a good one! Love Heart Lane was just perfect, it gave me cosy feels but it had so much depth to the story and characters. I didn’t want the story to end as I felt like I’d moved in to this Scottish Highlands village and that the characters were my friends. I’m now feeling bereft but excited and chuffed to learn that there will be more from Christie Barlow and the villagers we’ve grown to love with another story in the series due in the summer.
Felicity (Flick) Simons has been living and working in London for the last eight years after fleeing her home, friends and loved ones back in the Scottish Highlands village, Heartcross. The reason Flick fled was so tragic and very personal and at the time Flick felt like she had no option but to leave. It’s taken the death of her dear Grandmother for Flick to make the trip back up north and face the repercussions of her actions of eight years ago. Flick’s mother, Rona, is thrilled to have her daughter back home even under the saddest of circumstances but not everyone in the village welcome her back with open arms.
Fergus Campbell was Flick’s childhood sweetheart and when Flick upped and left eight years ago she crushed his heart and also their dreams of a future together. Now after so long Fergus is non too pleased to see Flick back in the village and the pain from long ago is still quite raw.
This is a story of friendship, of a community pulling together and of a love that suffered many scars but held on to a flicker of a flame that would never lose it’s glow. I devoured this story and wanted more.
If you can’t wait for book two in the series it is now available to pre-order: https://amzn.to/2AW6Gs8
