Clover Cottage by Christie Barlow / #Review #BlogTour @rararesources @ChristieJBarlow 



Love Heart Lane #3

Love Heart Lane – where friends are there for you no matter what.

When Vet Rory Scott inherits ramshackle Clover Cottage in the quaint village of Heartcross, Allie MacDonald just knows this is their happy ever after. A place to call home with the man she loves – it’s her dream come true!

Until Rory drops a bombshell. He loves Allie but he has dreams of his own to follow – to live and work in Africa. Clover Cottage will have to wait just a little longer…

Allie can’t imagine life without Rory, but she loves him too much to hold him back. And as he embarks on his adventure, Allie begins to rethink her own plans. She loves Rory and knows she wants him in her life, but maybe she can follow her own dreams too?

And always there, nestled in the beautiful village of Heartcross, surrounded by the people she loves, will be the place that will always bring them back to each other. Their forever home, Clover Cottage




Heartcross, the village you never want to leave! Why is that, I hear you say? Well, that’s very simple. The community is great. No matter which generation you are part of, whenever someone is in need, the whole village joins hands to help out.

But they do not only look after their ‘own’. Once you are accepted by the villagers, you become part of their ‘family’ and thus making you one of their ‘own’.

The author has created a heartwarming story once again. This time the spotlight is more on Allie, Rory and their family, but we still connect with old acquintances and meet new kids on the block. Some are welcomed with open arms, some not so. 🙂

Not all is well, though. The author manages to pull your heartstrings in more than one way. 

The last few pages really brought tears to my eyes. It was so utterly beautiful! I can’t wait to see what the future has in store.

Anyway, it’s a book every fan of this genre should read. On second thoughts, strike that previous sentence and replace it by this one : Anyway it’s a SERIES that every fan of this genre should read. 🙂 5 big, bright shiny stars.

Thank you, Christie Barlow and Rachel’s Random Resources
