Today is my stop on the Love Heart Lane blog tour. I’ve got a review for it.
Welcome to Love Heart Lane…
When Flick Simons returns to the small village of Heartcross she only expected to stay for a few days. The white-washed cottages of Love Heart Lane might be her home, but the place holds too many painful memories, and of one man in particular – Fergus Campbell.
When a winter storm sweeps in, the only bridge connecting the village to the main land is swept away! As the villagers pull together, Flick finds herself welcomed back by the friends she once left behind. And as the snow begins to melt, maybe there is a chance that Fergus’s heart will thaw too…
Is your book part of a series / standalone? There will be more books based around Love Heart Lane – even though this is the first one in the series they can be read as stand alones too.

When I first read the blurb for this book I thought it sounded really cute and I do believe it was the very first tour I booked onto for 2019 as well. I am turning into quite the sucker for a happy ending and reading more and more of these sorts of books (not that that’s a bad thing mind you!). Once again this is a new author for me and she didn’t disappoint. Her writing flowed and although she went into detail it wasn’t too much.
Felicity (Flick) moved to London to get away and deal with some heartbreak in her own way. Leaving her true love in Heartcross, Scotland. She has to go back home because of terrible circumstances and of course, everything starts going wrong the second she steps into the village. Over the course of her 2 week stay, she become town spokeswoman, midwife, saviour, babysitter and of course there has to be a little romance 😉 .
I loved Flick as she is quite relatable and the heartache her and Fergus went through is second to none. They both had to overcome a lot. Christie does try to keep a bit of mystery about them as she doesn’t divulge any secrets too soon. I was truly invested in Flick and Fergus to become a couple. But I guess you’ll have to read it and find out if they do or not.
Esme sounds absolutely adorable, she is Fergus’ daughter. She’s fun, witty and always willing to learn. She seems to be older than her mere 6 years old.
This is a truly beautiful story of friendship, love, heartache, and community. I was hooked from page 1 and I just kept pressing my kindle to turn the pages! Yes I think I burned some midnight oil reading this. I’d highly recommend it, go and get it now!!
