A feel-good love story in a gorgeous country village, perfect for fans of Milly Johnson and Heidi Swain.
Previously published as A House To Mend a Broken Heart.
Willow Tree Hall has been the proud ancestral home of the Cranley family for centuries. But now the house is falling apart, and the elderly Earl is growing too frail to manage it himself.
Annie Rogers is looking for a job that will allow her to disappear. The role of live-in housekeeper to Arthur, Earl of Cranley, and his reluctant heir, Sam Harris, is just perfect. How hard can it be to run a household? But with no qualifications, and Sam criticising her at every turn, Annie suddenly finds herself completely out of her depth.
But it turns out that Sam and Annie have more in common than they think. Both of them are running from their past. And both of them have fallen under the spell of Sam's beautiful, once-grand home. Maybe, just maybe, together they can save Willow Tree Hall ... and bring each other back to life at the same time.

Very amusing .. a wonderful read!
Having seen a lot about this forthcoming book, I was really looking forward to finally getting to read it - and I was not disappointed. This is a thoroughly entertaining rom-com and Alison Sherlock knows her stuff!
This story centres around a stately home, the people who live there and their connections to the local community. It's a real feel-good novel, with a touch of romance, disaster and success all flowing between the covers. A perfect 21st century novel, proving that we are all more equal in these enlightenend times.
There are some lovely little side tales in this one, some very funny scenes, and a few Cinderella and glamorous moments. The characters are individually created, and very amusing they are too. It's one of those books when you reach the end and the kindle tells you that's you reached 100% and you think 'what, already?'. Always the sign of a wonderful read, and I have no hesitation in recommending this one.
I received an arc via NetGalley in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
