Summary

Looking for a fresh start? Welcome to Butterbury....

A delightfully heartwarming story, perfect for fans of Holly Hepburn and Cathy Bramley. The Little Cottage in Lantern Square is Helen Rolfe's four Lantern Square novellas collected together for the first time.

Hannah went from high flyer in the city to business owner and has never looked back. In the cosy Cotswold village of Butterbury she runs Tied up with String, sending handmade gifts and care packages across the miles, as well as delivering them to people she thinks need them the most. 

But when her ex best-friend Georgia turns up and wants in on the action, will Hannah be willing to forgive and forget? With her business in jeopardy she needs to maintain the reputation she's established and discover whom she can trust....

Meanwhile, a mysterious care package lands on her own doorstep at Lantern Cottage. Who is trying to win her heart - and will she ever be willing to give it away?

Found a new author.

Karen Cass is a brilliant narrator. Which is why I was willing to give this new to me author a try. Really enjoyed the story and it certainly won’t be the last of Helen’s audio books I purchase. If you like feel good reads this is one I recommend.

Sweet story

I like an easy listen from time to time and this book hit the spot. A little predictable, but I love a love story and couldn't stop listening.

Not terrible....

The story is cute but the description of the village is much cuter. The plot is extremely predictable, with the foreshadowing very heavy-handed. The author introduces way too many details and characters, but fortunately you don’t have to retain most of them to make sense of the it.

The narrator often makes you aware that she is just reading from a page.
