'I am a big fan of Jenny Kane' Katie Fforde.
Thea Thomas needs to get away from her old life... and the interfering ex who won't leave her alone. When she lands a job heading up the restoration of Mill Grange, a stunning Victorian manor in Somerset, it feels like the perfect opportunity to start afresh.
What she didn't anticipate was how hostile the volunteer team – led by the formidable Mabel Hastings – would be about accepting new leadership. And with the deadline looming before the grand opening, Thea is in desperate need of more volunteers.
A broadcast appeal on the local news attracts the interest of troublesome but undeniably attractive celebrity historian Shaun Cowlson, who wants to make a TV programme about the restoration. It's hard enough adding one more big personality to the mix – but then her ex turns up as one of the volunteers! What seemed like a dream come true is fast becoming a total disaster! Can Thea find a way to save the manor?
A warm-hearted, feel-good romance from Jenny Kane, a Kindle #1 bestselling author.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Often viewed as a perfect, blissful antidote to the hustle and bustle of city life, the countryside in Jenny Kane’s Midsummer Dreams at Mill Grange is instead presented as lively portal for potential disaster. The action starts with our heroine Thea landing her dream job: managing the full restoration of a Victorian manor in Somerset. Desperate for a change from her high-stress city existence (she also wants to escape a persistent ex), Thea might her underestimated the headaches and challenges of her new work. but is she ready for the headaches that come with the new role? Some of these include hostile volunteers, shady executives and a high-profile archaeologist, with Kane taking great pleasure in introducing us to Exmoor’s quirkiest and most colourful. Naturally, a potential romance emerges to take Thea’s eye off the property ball, as her countryside adventure balances risk and reward.
