New Beginnings at Glendale Hall by Victoria Walters

Two weddings and a baby…but who will get their happy ever after?

Emily Prescott’s life isn’t going to plan. Her dreams of starting a family with fireman boyfriend Greg and opening up her own bakery in London feel like they will never come true. So when a wedding invite arrives from her oldest friend, Beth Williams, Emily is thrilled. Not only will she get to return to her childhood home in Scotland, but best of all – Beth wants her to bake the wedding cake!

However, her excitement is cut short when she discovers that Greg has cheated on her. Devastated by his betrayal, Emily flees to Glendale Hall, Beth’s grand estate in the Highlands, and tries to distracts herself with helping with the wedding plans, but that’s not easy when Greg keeps hounding her to forgive him. Then she’s introduced to Glendale’s new young and handsome vicar Brodie, and things become even more complicated.

When Emily discovers that Greg’s betrayal runs deeper than she imagined, she finds herself with a whole host of decisions to make, especially when she discovers her long awaited dream is finally being fulfilled – at exactly at the wrong time…

Escape to Scotland and fall in love with this gorgeous and inspiring romance from the bestselling author of Coming Home to Glendale Hall! The perfect feel-good read for fans of Holly Martin, Heidi Swain, and Jill Mansell.

My Review:

What a brilliant read this story proved to be! Mind you, I wasn’t surprised as I’d loved reading the first book in this series, ‘Coming Home to Glendale Hall‘, and couldn’t wait to read this sequel. I believe it could be read as a standalone but I found it great to catch up on the characters and happenings in this delightful Scottish community.

This is a story of secrets, second chances, community, beliefs and romance. It includes two weddings, a superb setting, confessions, problem addictions and new choices. I found it an enthralling, entertaining and moving story and I really hope there will be more stories set in this fantastic community. The talented author brings her characters to life in the story, making them easy to relate and react to. There’s a great mix of humour, turmoil, hope and inspiration – the letter from Greg was so moving!!! It is a lovely, heartwarming story that I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into and cannot recommend highly enough.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and not wanting to put it down till I’d finished it!
