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

The Accidental Inheritance by Cate Woods – great read with family history, mystery, romance and a new chance!

My Review:

American Cassidy Beeswhistle has a surprise
When her late father's papers make her realise
That her family originated in an English village where
She thinks she and her daughter could be happy there.

A beautiful, historic inn is what she thought she'd bought
From looking at the photos - but visit first she ought.
For the Inn is dilapidated, leaking and grotty but even so
She's determined to do her best to give it a go!

As the locals she starts to get to know
Most are friendly but there's also a foe.
With jobs to be done to make the fresh start,
Hard work and friendships will play their part.

A story of a community and history
Great characters and a mystery,
A Lord of the Manor and a Reverend, too.
This is a fun romance I highly recommend to you!

For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
As I share with you this, my honest review.

Book Description:

A surprise inheritance. A hostile lord of the manor. A chance at a new beginning…?

When Cassidy Beeswhistle loses her job and her boyfriend within seconds of each other, it’s time for a change. Discovering her beloved late father’s connection to a tiny English village, it seems like the perfect place to start again. Especially because there’s a secret ‘lost deed’, which – if found – would return the village’s gorgeous manor house to its rightful heir: Cassidy…

On arrival in Dithercott, Cassidy is blown away by the rolling hills and glittering lake, and the local villagers welcome her with open arms – all of them but one, that is… The current lord of the manor, Ned Bamford-Bligh, is tall and fiendishly attractive with his olive skin and jet-black hair, but he is also gruff and standoffish – and he has no interest in entertaining the new girl in the village; especially one who is potentially after his home, with its ivy-covered turrets and sprawling gardens.

Despite Ned’s frosty welcome, Cassidy is drawn to his piercing, hazel-eyed glare and she’s determined she is to uncover the demons that keep him locked away behind the manor’s imposing stonework. Before she knows it, an undeniable spark builds between them…

Just as Cassidy is feeling at home in Dithercott – and in the arms of Ned – he shows up on her doorstep clutching an old roll of parchment. Is this the discovery she’s been waiting for? And if it is, will its contents bring Ned and Cassidy closer together, or push them apart…?

A heart-warming, laugh-out-loud story of home, friendship, family and finding love in the most unlikely of places. The perfect curl-up read for fans of Sarah Morgan, Milly Johnson and Jenny Colgan.
