#BlogTour #Review : Heading Home to Lavender Cottage by Alison Sherlock. @AlisonSherlock @rararesources @BoldwoodBooks #boldwoodbloggers

I’m thrilled to be on this tour today, for the latest book from Alison Sherlock. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for having me on the tour and sending me a copy of the book to review.

The Book:

With nowhere else to go, Harriet Colgan has returned to the sleepy village of Cranfield to sell her beloved aunt and uncle’s cottage, the only place she ever called home.

When she arrives at Lavender Cottage, Harriet discovers plans to replace the beautiful lavender fields, her uncle’s pride and joy, with an industrial warehouse.

With time on her hands, she realises she must fight to protect her family’s legacy and the village of Cranfield as well.

Workaholic businessman Joe Randall was expecting an easy purchase of the lavender fields. But suddenly his quiet life is disrupted by protests from angry locals, organised by Harriet.

Can Harriet show Joe that there’s more to life than just business? And can Joe change his mind and help Harriet save the lavender fields?

Over a long, hot summer, and with the help of a stray dog, perhaps Harriet and Joe can find their way home too.

The Review: Anyone who reads my reviews will know I’ve read a number of Alison’s books before, the one’s set in Cranbridge. So it’s not going to be a surprise to see I’m reviewing this book, set in Cranfield which is Cranbridge’s neighbour.

I love Alison’s books. They are always a delight to read and never fail to put me in a better mood even after only a few pages. This one is no exception to that. Here we follow Harriet, and Joe, who are in different places in their lives but have one thing linking them, the lavender fields.

I liked that there were links to Cranbridge, it gave some familiarity to the village and the story. I liked the characters in the village as well. It was a good mix of people, and it worked well with the story. The other thing I like about these books, is that even if a character’s circumstances aren’t great, or something bad happens in the book, the overall feeling remains one of hope and optimism that things can get better and will improve, even if it doesn’t seem possible in that immediate moment.

This was a fantastic read that compliments the Cranbridge books well, but equally can easily be read on its own. Perfect for whenever you feel the need for a pick me up.
