Author: Victoria Walters
Published: June 2nd, 2021
What a gorgeous read this is – and a great addition to one of my favourite series! I’ve spent the afternoon relaxing in the beautiful sunshine reading this, not wanting to put it down until I’d finished it. It was lovely to go back to this delightful community, to catch up on events and get to know more of the residents. This story has Anna Stewart coming to work as the housekeeper at Glendale Hall, a job sorted out for her by her brother, Brodie, who is the minister of Glendale. Anna is a bit of a rolling stone, never settling anywhere for very long, always moving on to new places and people, but never really happy. This story explores what happened to her and shows how important discussing events can be to the mental health of those involved.
There are three weddings, a new romance, new dreams and lots of fun in this heartwarming story. There’s even a murder mystery weekend in a castle for them to enjoy! Get ready for love, laughter, secrets revealed, dreams and schemes in this fun and moving read. I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into it and love the sound of this idyllic Highland community, with its close friendship and excellent support network. I can’t recommend this highly enough and really hope there will be more stories set in Glendale.
What if we’re all just searching for something?
Anna Stewart is lost. After barely surviving a car accident as a teenager, Anna is scared of settling. Flitting between jobs, boyfriends and homes whenever she gets bored, she has no idea what the future holds. Then her brother Brodie, minister of Glendale, suggests she moves to the beautiful Scottish village, lining up a housekeeper job for her at Glendale Hall.
Out of options, Anna agrees to take the job just for the summer. Once at the hall, her culinary skills impress everyone, and she agrees to give Hilltop Farm’s new manager, Cameron, cooking lessons. Sparks fly between Anna and the handsome Scot, but Cameron keeps pushing Anna away, and Anna definitely isn’t looking for love. But it’s wedding season at Glendale Hall, and Anna is about to discover that her new home has a way of working its magic on even the coldest of hearts.
Will she really be able to just walk away at the end of summer, or could Anna have finally found a place to belong?
It’s summertime so pack your bags and escape to beautiful Highlands village of Glendale with this gorgeously uplifting, romantic read. Fans of Milly Johnson, Heidi Swain and Holly Martin will love this charming romance.
