Wedding bells are chiming in the village of Clunderton, but will it be happy-ever-afters all around? Rebecca Cavendish thinks not. All she’s feeling is shame and remorse since her affair with property mogul, Edward Hardwicke, whilst in another corner of the village, Louise Edwards is slowly coming to the conclusion she might not be in love with husband, Johnnie, anymore.
Meanwhile, Lottie Hardwicke is resisting the urge to do what she does best…interfere. When Edward’s son, James, turns up announcing Hardwickes’ intentions to develop land on the outskirts of the village into residential homes, and Edward makes a further shocking announcement, a divide begins to set hold amongst the villagers, perhaps more monumental than the country being torn apart by Brexit…
Will Lottie refrain? Or will she cave-in to that need to interfere, and ensure everyone ends up with their heart in the right home?
It’s my stop on the blog tour for ‘Heart in the Right Home’ Thank you to Tracy at Compulsive Readers for the tour invite.
Who doesn’t love a story about a tight community and a lot of drama!?!? Well I very much do! At first I was confused with the introduction of so many characters at once however that will just be me as I haven’t read the first in the series. Though now I definitely will also read that in the future too.
I fell in love with the community of Clunderton and it’s interesting residents. Getting to know the strong women that are Lottie, Louise and Rebecca was an inspiration. With so much going on in their lives they come together to help each other when needed. I very much related to Louise and her situation. I very much wanted for her to be able to change this to make herself happy. I felt for Rebecca and Lottie was just like the glue that kept everyone together.
There were plenty of story twists that I personally wasn’t expecting so this definitely made me want to read on at any opportunity. Once I got to know the various characters I was so invested in the drama that I felt it could actually be a soap opera. I thought Lisa’s narrative was dramatic and riveting. I highly recommend this jam packed story to all.
‘Heart in the Right Home’ is about coming together in an hour of need and a magical sense of community ❤️ I give ‘Heart in the Right Home’ 4*/5* 😊
Thank you to Lisa for an advanced copy of this book.
Lisa grew up in the village of Bussage, near Stroud, in the Cotswolds until she returned to Cheltenham as a teenager. She is married to her very own hero, Matt, and has three sons, Hamish, Archie and Laurence. Her first encounter of a romance author was chats over the garden wall between her father, Godfrey, and Mrs Cooper from the neighbouring village of Bisley. It came as quite a surprise in later life to find that Mrs Cooper was in fact Jilly Cooper! Lisa’s writing inspiration now comes from other Cotswolds authors including Jill Mansell and Katie Fforde.
Lisa writes contemporary women’s fiction with a light-hearted tone. What interests her most is people, their interactions, emotions and relationships. It’s probably why her career to date has been based in property; she confesses herself that she is ‘naturally curious’.
When she’s not busy writing, helping Matt run his electrical empire, or being her sons’ taxi service, Lisa enjoys long walks with the family gundog, Sparky, and is training to be a counsellor where she hopes, one day, to be able to provide therapy in the form of writing to those who need it.
Lisa is a graduate of the Romantic Novelists’ Association New Writers’ Scheme and attributes this supportive and informative scheme to her career to date, including her debut novel, Meet Me at Number Five, and this year’s perfect summer read Heart in the Right Place.
