Primrose Park written by Christie Barlow, publisher One More Chapter, is available NOW in ebook format. The paperback is due out in July 2021.
Love Heart Lane – where friends are there for you no matter what
Vet Molly has always been career driven and focussed on caring for her animals, but when she meets a gorgeous Mystery Man at a conference and their connection is off the charts, well, one night off work won’t hurt anyone…except the next morning he’s vanished and all Molly knows about him is his first name.
Three months later, back in Love Heart Lane, everyone loves the story of Molly’s amazing one-night stand. It’s so unlike her! But when Mystery Man turns up walking his dog through Primrose Park and their night together seems to mean nothing to him, Molly needs her friends and neighbours more than ever. And especially when she’s left with the most unexpected of surprises…
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 One Day Blog Blitz celebrating and promoting the launch of Primrose Park, Book 6 in the Love Heart Lane series by Christie Barlow.
Love Heart Lane is one of the most picturesque book locations in all of storyland. I love returning to this delightful village in Scotland and Primrose Park sees us re-visiting friends old and new.
Author Christie Barlow has written a winning formula with the Love Heart Lane series; the characters are written with great warmth and are easily relatable, we have a mix of personalities and ages, an abundance of animals and wildlife, feelgood factor and uplifting storylines through adversity but most of all there’s a strong sense of community spirit.
Each story in the series is centred around a different character so can be read as a standalone but I can wholeheartedly recommend reading the whole series in order to gain maximum enjoyment from this lovely series.
This is Molly’s story. Molly is a successful Vet who is happily single but is starting to feel broody with all her friends settled with a young family. Molly lives in the neighbouring village to Heartcross but was born in the village so grew up with the friends we’ve grown to love from the stories. An unexpected encounter with a handsome stranger sets Molly’s heart a flutter and after one magical night Molly’s heart and mind is full of this mystery man. However, it’s a few months on since this chance encounter and Molly is no further forward in finding out who he is until he turns up in Heartcross.
This second meeting with her mystery man doesn’t go quite to plan resulting in many emotional and physical challenges ahead for Molly. Molly needs the support of her friends more than ever.
I really enjoyed reading Primrose Park it left me feeling contented with it’s underlying storyline focusing on friendship, new beginnings and community spirit. The introduction of new characters slotted straight into the lovely bunch of residents and I am so looking forward to learning more about Molly and what lies ahead in future stories.
Christie Barlow writes with love and warmth and this comes through every page of her books.
