Today it is my pleasure to help kick off the blog tour for Suzanne Snow’s The Cottage of New Beginnings.
Annie has returned to Thorndale after the death of her beloved Godmother, to move into the beautiful cottage she has now inherited. She is feeling vulnerable after the breakdown of her relationship, and she is keen to make a new start. What she absolutely does not want is romance!
Jon is the local village hero, heading up the Fell Rescue team as well as providing breaks for teenagers. All of this whilst also running his families estate – he is handsome, driven – basically the ideal man! When he meets Annie he can’t take his eyes off her, he can’t stop thinking about her but he knows she’s recovering from a bad breakup.
Thorndale and its inhabitants is such a lovely village, I can understand why Annie returned there after spending her school holidays there with her Godmother Molly. Annie needed some time to find herself, and I think that beautiful cottage was the perfect setting. I really enjoyed following Annie and Jon’s burgeoning friendship. I could understand both Annie’s reluctance and Jon’s frustrations at their relationship. I loved many of the supporting characters (Sam and Charlie were particular favourites)
I am more than happy to recommend this novel. As the weather starts to turn, it is ideal for those chillier Sunday afternoons curled up on the sofa under a cosy blanket! Grab yourself a blanket, a glass of wine and a copy of The Cottage of New Beginnings!
