The Summer of Secrets by Tilly Tennant

4 sweet stars🌟🌟🌟🌟


Can new love grow when you dig up old secrets?

Harper Woods wakes up every morning on Silver Hill Farm feeling like the luckiest woman in the world. She’s recently engaged to the tall, dark and handsome Shay, out of her window lie rolling golden cornfields, and just downstairs are the gorgeous tea rooms she’s always dreamed of owning.

But Harper is about to discover a secret that will change her luck forever. For better or worse? She has no idea.

Distracted by her find, Harper doesn’t notice Shay getting rather close to his ex from the village. And as news of Harper’s discovery spreads through Silver Hill, there are people who are keen to stir up trouble, in particular, Will Frampton, handsome recluse and Lord of Silver Hill House, the crumbling stately home the other side of the hill.

Can Harper trust any man in Silver Hill? And as relationships are tested and tea cakes begin to fly, will anyone catch the romance blossoming in the most unexpected of places?

An utterly gorgeous, heart-warming romance, full of love and laughter. Perfect for fans of Debbie Johnson and Jenny Colgan.


This was a complicated secret filled book disguised as a sweet fluffy read…. and I mean this in the best way possible… this book started and I thought oh lovely setting, lovely love story, perfect relationship, oh so sweet, and there’s even tea and scones…. then a treasure was uncovered, secrets were revealed, and things went sideways….. and I have to give it to the author all this going on and there still was that lovely sweet feeling to this book that made you smile despite the fact that you probably shouldn’t be….

Harper owns the perfect farmhouse…. where she runs the perfect tea shop…. she also has the perfect stable fiancé with those perfect Popeye biceps…. but as we all know even in romance books things aren’t always as they seem…. there were a few little twists in this book and I thought there was going to be a love triangle for a hot minute…. all I will say is people aren’t always who they seem to be and that was absolutely true in this book….

Harper was a fantastic character… a girl I would love to go out to lunch with (this is always my measuring stick when it comes to book characters would I want to go out to lunch with them or not, and I love to go out to lunch)…. how can you not adore a girl who has a GOAT psychiatrist? Yes that is not a typo a GOAT…. a big shout out to Terrence! Also really loved her BFF Pip…. enjoyed the towns people and I also liked another character very much, but that is kind of a spoiler so I will leave it at that….

Absolutely recommend to fans of romance, fabulous characters, and an amazing setting….
