Summary

Brand-new from the best-selling author of The Village Shop for Lonely Hearts

After escaping her parents’ unhappy marriage to sleepy Cranbridge a long time ago, Belle Clarke dreams of staying at The Black Swan Inn forever.

But with the rundown inn threatened with closure, Belle may be forced to leave, unless a buyer can be found...quickly.

So, when her oldest friend, Pete Kennedy, returns from working abroad with a plan to save the Inn, Belle should be overjoyed. The trouble is, Pete has some rather radical ideas for the renovation which Belle disagrees with.

But when a snow storm hits, Belle and Pete are forced to put aside their differences and work together to help the village.

Can Belle realise her dreams to stay in Cranbridge, and can Pete ever stop running from his past

As they try to save The Black Swan Inn, secrets are revealed and just maybe, they’ll finally find out how they really feel about each other.

A warm fluffy blanket

Is this an entirely new and dynamic plot (No it echoes the previous stories, especially the first)
Is there twists and turns at every point (no)
Will this book set the world alight (no BUT it. Is a comforting, reassuring listen, the words wash over you and you don't have to do any work.
I think the next book will beall about Molly
