Guest Review: Coming Home to Cuckoo Cottage by Heidi Swain

From the bestelling author of Mince Pies and Mistletoe at the Christmas Fair and The Cherry Tree Cafe comes a glorious summer treat of glamping, vintage tearooms and love ...

When Lottie Foster’s grandmother’s best friend Gwen dies, she leaves Lottie her lovely home, Cuckoo Cottage.

Lottie loves the cottage but Matt, a charming local builder, points out that beneath its charm it is falling apart. Luckily he is always on hand to help with the problems that somehow seem to keep cropping up. But is he just a bit too good to be true? Certainly Will, Lottie’s closest neighbour, seems to think so.

Lottie plans to set up her own business renovating vintage caravans. She hasn’t told anyone about the project she has cooked up with Jemma from The Cherry Tree Café to repurpose Gwen’s old caravan and turn it into a gorgeous tearoom.

But before she can finally enjoy living with her legacy she must uncover who she can trust, and who to avoid. And with two men vying for her attention, will she also find love?

Review: Hurrah! Heidi Swain has taken us back to Wynbridge for another absorbing tale involving characters who now feel like old friends as this is the fourth book revolving around goings on in this lovely village; if only it were real. I was delighted to have the chance to read and review this new one. 

Central to this story is Lottie, who has been left Cuckoo Cottage by an elderly friend she has known since childhood. She meets some resistance from a few of the suspicious locals, although she's not clear why, but finds instant friends in places such as Cherry Tree Cafe and Skylark Farm, both locations that will be familiar to Heidi Swain fans like me. There is a bit of a mystery regarding some of the other things bequeathed to Lottie in the will, and she tries to work out the message from her dear friend. The story features budding romance for Laura involving two equally handsome and rugged men - Will the vet and Matt the handyman. Which one will win her heart and what is the suspense going on in the background? All of this will keep you turning the pages. 

As you might gather, I really enjoyed this visit to Wynbridge. The story is filled with strong and engaging characters and a really good plot that keeps you guessing. It would be a really good book to slip into your case or add to your e-reader as you set off on holiday, or, alternatively, just to settle down with in a comfy chair. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
