Thanks to Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources and Boldwood Books for an invitation to join the blog tour and a digital review copy of the book. I’ve enjoyed reading this series by Alison Sherlock and my last review can be read here: https://mentoringmumof2bookreviews.home.blog/2021/10/02/the-village-inn-of-secret-dreams-by-alison-sherlock/
Molly Hopkins has happily watched all of her friends’ dreams come true on Riverside Lane. Deciding to follow her passion for baking, Molly with the help of her friends takes the plunge and opens a Tea Garden in the village hoping to make it a summer to remember!
Meanwhile, after a rather public end of his marriage, Logan Armstrong trusts no one but his beloved Grandad. He just wants his brief stay in Cranbridge to be as quiet as possible. But his Grandad has other ideas; he dreams of seeing the old watermill working again which might just mean Logan has to ask the village for help.
Can Molly finally overcome her lack of confidence and believe in her abilities to make the tea garden a success? Will Logan discover that Molly might just be the one to mend his broken heart? And will both of them realise that life is for living and loving?
Over a long hot summer in Cranbridge, perhaps everyone’s dreams of a happy-ever-after can finally come true.

I enjoyed my return visit to the village of Cranbridge. The village has changed dramatically since the first book, The Village Shop for Lonely Hearts. The shopping area has improved, the pub now serves delicious food and there is a community hub.
Whilst all these changes happened, three of Molly’s friends had fallen in love – Amber is busy preparing to get married to Josh. This story allows Molly to shine, as she takes a chance to follow her dream to bake for more than just her family. She also gets to know her neighbour, Logan who is the grandson of one of my favourite recurring characters, Stanley.
Another lovely mix of romance, friendship and community spirit. This book should be enjoyed with a cup of tea and a freshly baked scone with jam and cream.
Alison Sherlock is the author of the bestselling Willow Tree Hall books. Alison enjoyed reading and writing stories from an early age and gave up office life to follow her dream. Her new series for Boldwood is set in a fictional Cotswold Village and the first title was published in July 2020.
