Escape to Scotland and fall in love with this gorgeous and inspiring romance from the bestselling author of Coming Home to Glendale Hall! The perfect feel-good read for fans of Holly Martin, Heidi Swain, and Jill Mansell.
I first fell in love with Glendale Hall and the area in the authors previous novel, Coming Home To Glendale Hall. It doesn’t matter if you have read that one or not as they are written as stand alone’s. You will however want to, as no way can anyone pick this book up and not fall in love with Glendale.
Emily is yet another wonderful character, who I took to instantly. I loved her hopes and dreams as they could easily be any of ours or at least something similar. Gregg did grate on me to start with but even with him, I really liked by the end and whilst I couldn’t condone what he had done, I did have a bit more empathy towards him.
There is something about Glendale that has an almost magical feel. Whether it’s because of the idyllic setting or the wonderful characters, but I could easily have packed up and moved there myself. Through Emily’s own story, it offers the reader hope as well.
New Beginnings At Glendale Hall is a wonderfully uplifting read. I love the authors style of writing which draws you in, making you feel at home. Its a lovely comfy, cosy read that offers hope as well as inspiration. You can’t help but get a lovely feeling that warms you on the inside when reading these books. Fabulous!
My thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources, Hera Books and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
New Beginnings At Glendale Hall is available to purchase from Amazon.
