A cosy and heartwarming seasonal romance, perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley.
Beth is running away. With her young son Leo to protect, Willow Cottage is the lifeline she so desperately needs. Overlooking the village green in a beautiful Cotswolds idyll, Beth sees a warm, caring and safe place for little Leo.
When she finally uncovers the cottage from underneath the boughs of a weeping willow tree, Beth realises this is far more of a project than she bargained for and the locals are more than a little eccentric! A chance encounter with gruff Jack, who appears to be the only male in the village under thirty, leaves the two of them at odds but it’s not long before Beth realises that Jack has hidden talents that could help her repair more than just Willow Cottage.
Over the course of four seasons, Beth realises that broken hearts can be mended, and sometimes love can be right under your nose…
Escape to Willow Cottage was originally digitally published as a four-part serial under the title Willow Cottage. This is the complete story.
Why should this book wriggle its way up your TBR?
Escape to Willow Cottage is simply perfect in every way. There is romance, community loveliness with a sprinkling of drama.
I absolutely love Bella Osborne writing style that takes me right into the story and introduces me to her character in the most engaging way.
I got really fond of Beth, and her son Leo They has such a lovely and very close relationship, and it was evident from the beginning why Beth needs a change of scenery. Beth and Leo found themselves quickly enveloped by the village lifestyle and slowly slip into a happy routine although Beth can't help herself to look over her shoulder and wonder if they can finally find their happy ever after in Dumbleford. Hopefully, Jack will help her decision-making process...
I also enjoy reading about Carly and Fergus, and Jack, Doris, Petra, and Shirley. All the supporting characters added their little magic to this beautiful story that covers not only romance but touches on some very serious issues in relationships and social life.
I loved visiting the charming Cotswold's village of Dumbleford and its eccentric residents, and along the way, I found myself really invested in this story, and as a result, I will be missing my evening dose of Willow Cottage.
P.S The Escape to Willow Cottage was originally published as a four-part serial. This is the complete story in one package.
