Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Delightful read! – The Village Inn of Secret Dreams by Alison Sherlock

My Review:

Thank you to Boldwood Books and NetGalley, too,
For my copy of this book, here's my honest review:

Belle Clarke was sent to stay with her Uncle and Aunt
When her parents fell out and had their final rant
She's stayed there, growing up then working in The Black Swan Inn
But it is losing money and now her Uncle thinks they can't win.
That's why the Inn is going up for sale soon
And Belle feels like all will end in doom.

Pete Kennedy is Belle's oldest friend
But his travels abroad are about to end.
When he decides to buy the Inn and work with Belle
To make it a place where folks like to eat and dwell.
Can they work together to make it a success
Or will their differences make it something less?

This is a story of a village and the folks there
Who are there to help others when they need to share.
With a world cruise, a snowstorm and folks in need
Can Pete learn to stay and Belle's advice heed?
Can Belle learn she's to trust that she's enough? 
Let's hope the road to romance isn't too rough!

This is the third book in 'The Riverside Lane' Series of books
Each of which is well worth taking a look
Although they're linked with characters and setting
You could enjoy them as a standalone, too, I'm betting.
However, I've now read and thoroughly enjoyed all three
And hope you'll get the chance to see if you agree with me!

Synopsis:

Brand NEW from the bestselling author of The Village Shop For Lonely Hearts.

After escaping her parents’ unhappy marriage to sleepy Cranbridge a long time ago, Belle Clarke dreams of staying at The Black Swan Inn forever.

But with the rundown Inn threatened with closure, Belle may be forced to leave, unless a buyer can be found … quickly.

So, when her oldest friend Pete Kennedy returns from working abroad with a plan to save the Inn, Belle should be overjoyed. The trouble is, Pete has some rather radical ideas for the renovation which Belle disagrees with.

But when a snow storm hits, Belle and Pete are forced to put aside their differences and work together to help the village.

Can Belle realise her dreams to stay in Cranbridge and can Pete ever stop running from his past?

As they try to save The Black Swan Inn, secrets are revealed and just maybe they’ll finally find out how they really feel about each other.
