My review

This is book 2 in the series, but don’t let this put you off if you have not read the first one! It can easily be read as a standalone because even though we reconnect with people from the previous book, the story focuses on other characters.

Ok, it’s true you miss some background information but once you have finished this one, you will run to the bookstore and buy the first part as well.

If you love reading stories about those little close knit communities, then you will be in for a treat. I for sure adore them. They are always so heartwarming in this often cold world.

Life is always easier when you have a lovely family and close friends. Of course they can’t keep disaster at bay, but when you are in trouble, they are the first you can call and you know they will be there to help you anyway they can.

The author certainly served the main characters a plate full of problems. Some are so huge that they do not seem to be able to get through, but where there is a will, there is a way. You only have to find it!

Some problems do not dissapear overnight, but talking about them and face them is one big step in the right direction.

I adored this book. Can’t wait to see who will be next in the spotlight. 5 stars

Thank you, Christie Barlow and Rachel’s Random Resources.
