Love Heart Lane by Christie Barlow

I’m so pleased to be part of the blog tour for this wonderful book today. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the blog tour.


Welcome to Love Heart Lane…
When Flick Simons returns to the small village of Heartcross she only expected to stay for a few days. The white-washed cottages of Love Heart Lane might be her home, but the place holds too many painful memories, and of one man in particular – Fergus Campbell.
When a winter storm sweeps in, the only bridge connecting the village to the main land is swept away! As the villagers pull together, Flick finds herself welcomed back by the friends she once left behind. And as the snow begins to melt, maybe there is a chance that Fergus’s heart will thaw too…


It’s always great news when a new Christie Barlow book comes out, but I really feel that this is her best yet.

The story sounds simple, but there’s so much more to this book. There’s family history, there’s community, there’s all of life’s happiness and sadness.

The sense of community in Heartcross is the thread that runs right through the book. The diverse characters are all connected by being from this charming village. The characters are wonderfully drawn, and make the book so real, and so readable.

I liked Flick. She had made some hasty decisions years before, and run away from her troubles, but deep down her heart was always in Heartcross. Fergus had been badly hurt, and is wary as a result, but he’s really a lovely person. As the novel progresses, both of them have to face up to their pasts.

I was delighted when I got to the end to discover that this is the first in a series! I’ll be looking forward to the next one.

A heart-warming and uplifting book. Highly recommended.

MY RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
