Return to the Little Cottage on the Hill – Emma Davies

The climb up the hill takes her past sweet-smelling pink roses in full bloom and leads her to an utterly breathtaking view. Megan is happy to be home at last, but will her relationship have survived the journey?

It has been a difficult few years for thirty-year-old Megan Forrester, completing her apprenticeship and trying to maintain a long-distance relationship with her gorgeous boyfriend, Liam.

She’s returned home to compete in a local craft competition. The prize is the chance to design beautiful new gates for the estate at the bottom of the hill, a job which could secure her future in the village forever.

As the contest gets underway, Megan is devastated when a rival design turns out to be almost identical to hers. Someone in the close-knit community must have leaked her sketches, but who? Is it the same person spreading heartbreaking rumours about Liam?

Down to the last few left in the competition, Megan throws her heart and soul into a show-stopping final piece… but will winning even matter when the truth about Liam is finally revealed?


My review

You don’t have to look for it. Love will find you when the time is right.

After reading the previous part a few months ago, I could hardly wait for the rest of the story. I was so happy when I finally could put it on my Kindle.

What I like about reading a series is that you get to know more about some characters you have met before. It feels like they have become friends, but it also means that new people are introduced who have an impact on them. If one of those newcomers is responsible for the future happiness of one of those friends, it makes it even better. Of course, friends would not be friends if they did not stand by each other even if they do not always see eye to eye.

Although I did enjoy part 2, I liked this one even more. I love the little suspense that was added.
Now there is only one person left to be matched with ‘the one’. I hope that this is what the author will treat us to in part 4.

Once again a feel good story that is fluently written and kept me under its spell the whole way through. 5 stars.

Thank you, Emma Davies, Bookouture and Netgalley


About the author

Emma once worked for a design studio where she was asked to provide a fun, humorous, and not necessarily true anecdote about herself for their website. She wrote the following: ‘I am a bestselling novelist currently masquerading as a thirty something mother of three.’ Well the job didn’t work out but she’s now a forty something mother of three and happy to report the rest of her dream came true.

She now lives in rural Shropshire with her husband, three children, and two guinea pigs where she writes full time from a shed in the garden
