Starcross Manor - Christie Barlow || Blog Tour


Dying to know more about the brooding and mysterious Flynn Carter and the secrets behind his plans for Starcross Manor?

You won’t want to miss the next spellbinding chapter in the Love Heart Lane series – where friends are there for you no matter what. When Julia Coleman meets Flynn Carter again in the cosy village of Heartcross it can only mean trouble. Flynn might be rich, brooding and sexy, but Julia knows first-hand he’s ruthless and she plans to watch his every move.
When Julia discovers Flynn’s plans for beautiful Starcross Manor her greatest fears come true.  Because Flynn’s dreams of turning Starcross into a luxury hotel could ruin Julia’s dreams…and finish off the community of Heartcross for good.
Flynn makes it clear he doesn’t want trouble, and he’s not the man Julia thinks he is.  As he sets about convincing the community he’s changed, he hopes he can convince Julia to give him another chance too…

I was so happy to be making a return visit to Love Heart Lane. I reviewed the first book in this series previously and i loved it. This time we are meeting Julia, who owns the b&b and the mysterious Flynn who is new to the village and he has secret plans for Starcross Manor.

Julia knows one thing though, the Flynn of the past cannot be trusted and when she discovers Flynn is turning Starcross into a luxury hotel she once again sees he cannot be trusted, his plans affect all the people of the village and will impact their businesses. So - Julia rallies everyone together and sets about fixing this.

As the pair come to blows, Julia finds herself in need of help from Flynn so she swallows her pride and asks him for help but has he changed? Can he prove himself. I thought this was another great read. It had enough mentions of the first book that it was an added bonus to the reader but if you hadn't already read it, you didn't feel out of place. 

The characters were once more delightful, warming funny and so relatable. The sense of community once more was one of my favourite things. As a reader you get to visit all the little places, learn everyones little quirks and how everyone benefits everyone in a small place like Heartcross. I really loved Julia, who was strong willed, passionate and supportive. I think she was the sort of person you would want on your team backing you. Flyn was mysterious and had a reputation that preceded him but i loved getting to discover more about him and really seeing how things are not as they seem.

A light hearted, cute and fun read that whisks the reader away into little village life for a while. I was gifted my copy for the blog tour.
