Today I have a review for the book Love Heart Lane by Christie Barlow. Love Heart Lane is the first in a duology.
Welcome to Love Heart Lane…
When Flick Simons returns to the small village f Heartcross she only expected to stay 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 mainland 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 really enjoyed Love Heart Lane. I instantly felt a connection to Felicity. Her story was one that a lot of people will probably resonate with. Although the book was a light and easy read it touched on some very deep issues. I really loved the idea of this little village pulling together as a community when things go from bad to worse. I would like to think that as society we would pull together in the same way.
It is easy to see why Fergus behaves the way he does with her after everything they have been though together. Isla was a character who also stood out to me, I would really like to see more from her and Drew in a future book.
The writing was really well done and flowed with a great pace. I found that once I got started pages flew by without me even realising. It’s rare these days I get to start and finish a book within a day or two.
I would really recommend this book to others, if you are looking for an nice enjoyable romance that has depth and excitement then this is the book for you.
