The Country Escape - Jane Lovering || Blog Tour


Welcome to the idyllic country retreat of Christmas Steepleton, and let Jane Lovering whisk you away with the most heart-warming, romantic and comforting read of the year.

Leaving London and her ex-husband Luc behind, Katie and her 14-year-old daughter Poppy move into their very own, very ramshackle cottage near the village of Christmas Steepleton on the Dorset coast. 
Harvest Cottage has been unloved for many years, so the job of bringing it back to life is a slow and expensive one. So, with funds running low, Katie jumps at the chance when a film company asks to use the cottage as a location.  But even as things are looking up, as harvest time passes and autumn chill starts to bite, the prospect of a cold winter in the country is daunting.
Some light relief comes from new friend Gabriel, so different from Katie’s exuberant but arrogant ex Luc. Will their friendship blossom into something more romantic, or will the reality of a tough country winter send her and Poppy scurrying back to the comforts of town? 

Let Jane Lovering spirit you away to the perfect country escape, far away from the bustle of the city. Just right for fans of Emma Burstall, Fern Britton and Kate Forster.

We all know i love a little village countryside book so this was going to be a hit with me. Katie and her daughter Poppy have recently moved to the Dorset coast in a little rundown cottage after Katie goes through divorce.

Unsure of what her future holds, life starts to take some funny turns starting with a pony turning up in the orchid. A film crew looking to use the cottage for a location and an old lady living in her garden. Not only that, the unlikely friendship that forms with Katie and local Gabriel. This book really is an adventure but what really stood out most for me with this book was the characters.

I really loved Katie and Gabriel together, they were awkward, prickly and seemed to rub each other up the wrong way initially but they had such an underlying current that watching them blossom together was great. I feel like Jane really has unique characters down to Granny Mary and her bold personality and life experiences.

I feel like they all made this a stand out read for me because i felt like the characters weren't your average Joe but had substance and depth, they were real and raw. It was a case of letting them find their own relationship. It was a refreshing look at relationships, pasts and handling emotions. 

I was gifted my copy for the blog tour. Massive shoutout to Boldwood and Rachel for supporting me when i make mistakes!
