Will Natalia Amore get the new start she truly desires? Or will fate step in the way?
In her huge mansion overlooking Wyllow Cove, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Natalia Amore had everything she could possibly want. But having kicked out her adulterous ex-husband, her house is filled with nothing but echoes and Nat yearns for the cosiness and bustle of seaside living. In particular, the rundown Lavender Cottage that has gone up for sale.
But when her mother has a fall, Nat's dream of a quiet new life crumbles as she instantly brings her into her home to care for her. With her two energetic nieces then dumped on her doorstep and her recently heartbroken daughter moving back into the nest, Nat can't possibly abandon her family... Lavender cottage will just have to wait.
That is until Irishman Connor enters Nat's life and makes her realise that it's okay to put herself first, and she's allowed to wish for more.
A heartwarming and uplifting cosy romance novel, perfect for fans of Holly Martin and Tilly Tennant.

Dreams of a Little Cornish Cottage

My Review:

Another fun book, set in a gorgeous location, with humor and enough emotional angst to make this a great read.  The slow-burn romance, idyllic setting, and cast of delightful family members, neighbors, and villagers will make you laugh, sigh, and smile as you read this entertaining book.  

Natalia (Nat) Amore, recently divorced, living in a huge home after her two daughters have left to live their own lives, decides it’s time to put the house up for sale and downsize. First, she needs some extra cash to pay the bills, so she decides to let out a room to a lodger.  In walks Conner, handsome, and younger than Nat, who needs a room for just a few months. Nat knows that letting the room to a younger man will cause the villagers to talk, but after throwing her cheating husband out of the house just a few months earlier, she decides to take the chance and let the room out to Conner. 

Before Conner can move in, Nat has her energetic twin nieces thrust upon her for an extended visit while her sister works overseas.  Soon after that, Nat’s daughter Sarah breaks up with her cheating boyfriend and has to move home.  Later, she takes in her mother, who’s had a fall.  With a house full again, Nat’s plans to downsize will take a little longer than expected.  

I really enjoyed this fun book.  The beginning had a bit of a chaotic start, but once I got going, I became invested in the characters and couldn’t stop rooting for Nat to get her Happily Ever After.  Nat is a nurturer and can’t say no when family needs her, and puts the needs of her family before her own needs (sound familiar?).  

Conner is the perfect man, he can fix the garden fence, is happy to babysit the nieces, enjoys some playful banter with Nat’s mum, and can fix anything in the house, plus he’s not bad to look at.  But, is he too good?  

Sometimes Nat’s obsession with age, and helping her family got a bit much, but her delightful sense of humor and the way she loves her family made up for it.  

I highly recommend this book. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
