Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Mince Pies and Mistletoe at the Christmas Market and The Cherry Tree Café comes a glorious summer treat of glamping, vintage tearooms and love.... 

When Lottie Foster’s grandmother’s best friend, Gwen, dies, she leaves Lottie her lovely home, Cuckoo Cottage.  

Lottie loves the cottage, but Matt, a charming local builder, points out that beneath its charm it is falling apart. Luckily he is always on hand to help with the problems that somehow seem to keep cropping up. But is he just a bit too good to be true? Certainly Will, Lottie’s closest neighbour, seems to think so.

Lottie plans to set up her own business renovating vintage caravans. She hasn’t told anyone about the project she has cooked up with Jemma from The Cherry Tree Café to repurpose Gwen’s old caravan and turn it into a gorgeous tearoom.

But before she can finally enjoy living with her legacy she must uncover whom she can trust and whom to avoid. And with two men vying for her attention, will she also find love?

Delightful

Though charming, it was a story of nefarious schemes mixed in with love. I so enjoyed the development of Lottie’s passion and dreams as well. New author for me, but will seek other books she’s written.

cuckoo

This book is so frustrating! I don't understand why she made the main character, Lottie, a complete idiot. I understand the point but it keeps going through out the book.

Fine to pass the time

I think I would have enjoyed the book a bit more if the main character hadn’t been so gullible. I found myself rolling my eyes at how utterly pathetic she seemed at times. The narrator was fine but I wasn’t keen on some of the inflection which made Lottie sound much older than she was in the book. I love the idea of Wynbridge so will probably give another book a chance, I’m hoping the narrator will grow on me and the next character will be a bit more intelligent!

Could have been good

But she’s just so stupid for the first 90% of the story I had to force myself to get to the end.

Loved this book!

Loved the book. The storyline and the reader were completely in sync and it gave me probably the most pleasant read I’ve had for a long time.
Now going on to read more from the same author- pleased to note they are read by the same person.

Think twice

Takes gullibility to the limit. Insipid polt and wearying characterisation compounded by mediocre narration. Nothing to recommend.

Wonderful

I loved this book. I felt completely drawn in and couldn’t put it down. Kept sneaking off to bed early to listen to it! Karen Cass narrated beautifully and her voice just lent itself fantastically to the characters. Very nice story. As with all of Heidi’s books I want to know what happens next!!
