Chells and Books Review:
I would like to thank Bookouture for asking me to review this book and to be apart of the blog tour.
The cover for this book is just lovely. It is so inviting. I adore Donna Ashcroft’s books and this was is amazing.
Madison has been travelling the the world and trying to escape some feelings she has that are linked to her past. She arrives home wanting a change but not sure how or where she fits in in her local community. Her aunt and uncle have put their guesthouse up for sale, Madison who does not no this does realise it needs help and decides this is what she can do to help her aunt and uncle, although it is not easy. Madison had feelings for Connor from when she was younger and their past is not a great one with some misunderstood opinions of each other.
As the story unfolds a lovely romance plays out in a beautiful setting. I just loved the Sunflowers, our wedding flower, so that element really spoke to my heart and made the location just that little bit more magical.
Donna Ashcroft was born in London and grew up in Buckinghamshire. She went to university in Lancashire and, among other things, worked as a copywriter, buyer, waitress, secretary and marketing manager.
Donna wrote novels for over ten years before being published. She is a member of the Romantic Novelists Association and was a joint winner of the Katie Fforde Bursary in 2017.
Donna loves a happy ending and is never happier than when she’s escaping into a romance novel or movie. When she’s not reading or writing she’ll probably be found hoovering … or negotiating with her teenagers about who is doing the washing up.
