What a delightful read! It’s been quite a while since I have read such a charming and heartwarming read! After a decade away from her small town of Bibury in New Zealand, Isla finds herself back home after a career burnout in London and breaking up with her boyfriend. She isn’t sure what her purpose is anymore, but she is hoping she finds it again now that she is living with her grandmother, Bridget, again. Little do these two wonderful women realize they will help each other find their way again and possibly their HEAs. I LOVED everything about this book. It really was two love stories ….Isla and Bridget. They really helped one another learn to enjoy life again, not just living day to day never seeing the joy each day. Both were truly remarkable women. Kudos to Vernal on the aging process. It is something none of us can escape, and our physical bodies show it, but most of us never feel old inside. She proves that age really is a state of mind, and Bridget beautifully exemplifies that! I loved the other aspects of the book. There is the backstory of Bridget’s romance as a young girl which is shown in flashbacks. It also shows Bridget’s love for her friend who died way too young. Through those stories, Vernal gave me the history of the town which really made me feel like I was a part of the story. Isla loves her grandmother as much as her grandmother loves her. She takes a chance righting a wrong that could possibly give Bridget the happiness that has always eluded her. In the process, Isla finds her second chance a romance as well. When I read the synopsis, I knew I would love this book. But, Vernal far exceeded my expectations. It has a little something for everyone…family, friendships, hope, a wee bit of a mystery, and of course, romance. Do yourself a favor and travel to the town of Bibury to get to know the people there. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
