Book Description:

Love Heart Lane – where friends are there for you no matter what

There’s a newcomer to the village of Heartcross and she’s never been more in need of a friend.

As the new manager of local bistro, The Lake House, Ella is ready to start afresh ––and that could mean there’s love on the horizon in the form of the gorgeous Roman, the local water taxi driver. Every day Roman is there to ferry Ella to the restaurant on the other side of the lake and every night he makes sure she gets home safe. But Roman has secrets of his own…

Can the Love Heart Lane community offer Ella a chance of a new life? Or will the ghosts of her past catch up with her?

My Thoughts:

We meet Ella when she is seriously down on her luck. Life has been pretty cruel to her but hopefully that is all about to change thanks to her friend Callie and the magic of Heartcross.

Heartcross and it’s residents is a wonderful village and as with the other books in the series, I felt like I was coming home and being back amongst good friends. I love the community feel, with the good friendships and how everyone wants to support each other. You can’t help but feel your heart lift in spirits when reading this book.

The story focuses on Ella and Roman, both characters were lovely and I enjoyed seeing the chemistry between them blossoming. It’s such a feel good read and I especially loved the storyline to do with Dolores.

The Lake House is a story that will have you drifting away from reality and being caught up in this wonderful tale of fiction. It’s pure escapism at it’s best. The author has created such an idyllic setting with great characters that you won’t want to be anywhere other than inside it’s pages. I am so loving this series and they are books you can revisit over and over again and get just as much enjoyment as you do first time round in reading them.

My thanks Rachel’s Random Resources for an invite to be on the blog tour. Opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
