Magnolia House – Angela Barton

When you open up your home and your heart …
Rowan Forrester has it all – the happy marriage, the adorable dog, the good friends, the promising business and even the dream home after she and her husband Tom win a stunning but slightly dilapidated Georgian townhouse in London at auction.

But in the blink of an eye, Rowan’s picture-perfect life comes crashing down around her and she is faced with the prospect of having to start again.

To make ends meet she begins a search for housemates, and in doing so opens the door to new friends and new beginnings. But could she be opening the door to new heartbreak too?



My review

Are you looking for a romantic story? Are you looking for a romantic story about second chances and new friends? Are you looking for a story with all of the above and a bit of suspense added to the mix? No need to look any further because by reading this book, you have found it.

Life certainly is no bed of roses and can hand you a few blows, but when you are surrounded by family and friends, you can overcome anything. It still needs time, of course, but as long you don’t have to do it all by yourself, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel even if you don’t think there is.

The cover is very well chosen and you just have to love the little cute dog.

If you would ask me to pick a favourite character, one name comes to mind straight away : Ace. He is quite a character and he is the life of the party.

This story is beautiful, fluently written and very appropriate to help you spend those dark wintery nights.

I, for sure, would really, really like a sequel, please. 5 stars.

Thank you, Angela Barton and Choc Lit.
