Clover Cottage - Christie Barlow

A page-turning new cosy novel in the bestselling Love Heart Lane series – perfect for fans of Katie Fforde, Phillipa Ashley and Milly Johnson!

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

When Vet Rory Scott inherits ramshackle Clover Cottage in the quaint village of Heartcross, Allie MacDonald just knows this is their happy ever after. A place to call home with the man she loves – it’s her dream come true!

 Until Rory drops a bombshell. He loves Allie but he has dreams of his own to follow – to live and work in Africa. Clover Cottage will have to wait just a little longer…

Allie can’t imagine life without Rory, but she loves him too much to hold him back. And as he embarks on his adventure, Allie begins to rethink her own plans.

She loves Rory and knows she wants him in her life, but maybe she can follow her own dreams too? And always there, nestled in the beautiful village of Heartcross, surrounded by the people she loves, will be the place that will always bring them back to each other. Their forever home, Clover Cottage.


*Firstly apologies for the delay in this review*

With a title like Clover Cottage i knew straight away this book was going to be a bit of me. It was. A small quaint village with an epic support network, and ive heard rumour of some great cakes too.

Allie loves her small village life with Rory, ready to settle and take the next step when they are offered chance to move into their own cottage - what more could they want?

Except that isnt what Rory wants, he has his own plans, plans that involve Africa and moving away for a while - where does that leave Allie? Especially when his plans look set to become real with the help of TV star Zach Hudson.

This was a great read. Allie was for the most a great leading lady, however she underestimated herself alot, and at times was very secure - i sometimes wanted to tell how strong she was, but thats what her friends were for. To shake some sense into her. Rory, was equally as enjoyable to read, he was sometimes caught in his own little bubble too - but thats why the relationship worked, it wasnt all sunshine and daisys. The couple had their flaws and their issues and natural reactions to situations life was throwing at them.

I loved visiting Love Heart Lane and would love to return.
