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

Brilliant 5* read – Healing Hearts at Bumblebee Barn by Jessica Redland – great start to a new series!

My Review:

Jessica Redland has done it once more - 
Written a book that I totally adore!
I'd dreaded the end of the stories for Hedgehog Hollow
But some characters are back in this one to follow.

Barney and his sister, Fizz, are in this book, too,
He's a farmer who can't find love whatever he chooses to do!
So when Fizz suggests applying to a farmers' dating reality show
He's desperate enough to give it a go....

Get ready for the reluctant producer and new characters galore
As love on the farm they start to explore.
But beware, there are hidden agendas, too,
And surprises as well before everything is through.

A beautiful story involving hurts from the past,
Coping with grief and moving on at last.
There's hedgehogs, sheep, pigs, horses and romance
In this gorgeous read that deserves more than a chance.

If you enjoy family dramas with love at the heart
You'll find in this book, right from the start.
I really enjoyed reading it all the way through
And have no hesitation in highly recommending it to you!


Welcome to Bumblebee Barn, home to wonderful animals, stunning views and spectacular sunsets – and resident young farmer, Barney.

While Barney loves his life at Bumblebee Barn – a farm that has been in his family for generations – he’s struggling to find someone to share it with. The early mornings quad biking through muddy fields and the long hours looking after the crops and animals are proving to be a deterrent to finding love.

So when his sister, Fizz – desperate for Barney to find his soulmate – sees an advert for Love on a Farm, a new reality TV show to help farmers find love, he has nothing to lose by applying. Afterall, he isn’t meeting anyone suitable down the traditional route and surely he won’t be picked anyway…?

Thrown into the chaos of reality TV, Barney could never have expected that his whole life would be turned upside down, with buried secrets to be uncovered and his heart on the line. With his family and friends rooting for him, could the magic of Bumblebee Barn heal his broken heart and help him find love on the farm?

      I really enjoyed it and the links to Hedgehog Hollow
      It is definitely a series that I’ll now want to follow.
      I liked how the characters from both series mix
      And how love helps their hearts to fix.
