But just as Kitty is beginning to find her feet, the discovery of a long-hidden diary,at the farm, by a mysterious character called Violet changes everything.

When it comes to life in the country, nothing is ever quite as it seems …

My Thoughts:

Kitty’s Countryside Dream is a wonderful story of romance, secrets, hopes and dreams.

I openly admit to expecting your normal chick lit story of girl meets boy, falls in love and lives happily ever after but there is so much more to this book. I should really have known having read this authors others books there would be more depth to this novel.

Kitty is such a lovely character, in fact all of the characters in this novel are lovely. Kitty sees inheriting Bluebell Lodge as a new start. She is very intrigued to find she has inherited a farm from a grandmother she never knew existed. As the story goes along there are so many secrets that come to light which actually makes for a heart breaking read in parts.

Kitty’s relationship with Tom and her new friends is such a joy to read. I really did love every character in this novel as they are all wonderful in their own way. Even the chickens on the farm grew on me and that’s saying something!

Kitty’s Countryside Dream is a novel that you can’t help falling in love with. It is one that will make you smile, laugh as well as cry. It truly is a lovely story and one that I was very sad to finish. I hope the author may do another novel in the future so we can catch up with Kitty and the gang in the future.
