A New Life for Ariana Byrne
What happens after all your dreams come true?
Ariana Byrne knows how to survive. After becoming guardian to her four little sisters after their parents died when she was only eighteen, she had to grow up quickly. Now she’s in her twenties, stuck in a loveless marriage to Greg, trying to make ends meet for her young twins, William and Leo.
So when Ari is told that she’s actually the Right Honourable Lady de Foix, Countess of Hiverton, owner of a sprawling estate in the village of Saxburgh in Norfolk, her first instinct is laughter. Surely the girl who has to choose between food and keeping the lights on isn’t really rich beyond her wildest dreams?
She knows how to take care of her sisters and her children, but how on earth can Ari take care of an entire village? Can she fight off the circling land developers from Saxburgh, and stop her in-laws from grabbing all the money for themselves?
And while she’s struggling to settle in and settle down, she’s making new friends and new mistakes. Trusting her gorgeous neighbour, Sebastian Flint-Hyssop, may be the biggest one of all…
She’s swapped sink estate for country estate…but can a girl from inner city London learn how to become a Lady?
Take a trip to Hiverton Manor for the most uplifting novel of 2020 – guaranteed to put a smile on your face! Fans of Jenny Colgan, Trisha Ashley and Carole Matthews will love this romantic, feelgood read.
What a fabulous little gem! This was a feel good, rags to riches, small town romance and I loved it! Ariana has had a hard life.. her parents were killed in a tragic accident when she was 18 and this left her in charge of her four younger sisters. She thought she had found true love with her boyfriend Greg, but after an unexpected pregnancy and the birth of twin boys she found out that Greg was no prince. Trapped in a loveless marriage and struggling to pay the bills Ari is shocked when she finds out that she has inherited a title, an estate, and a fortune. Ari is given an opportunity to leave her marriage and take her two little boys and head to the country and her new life. What follows is a delightful story about Ari adapting to her new circumstances. Not only has she inherited the title, but she has also inherited the reputation of her family and she is more than determined to shake that.
This book was so fun. I loved Ari she was such a great character that I could not help but cheer for. I love how devoted she was to her boys and to her sisters. She was also so spunky, strong, and smart when it came to dealing with all the things she had to deal with involving her new life. The romance in this book was sweet, but I thought it really took a backseat to everything else going on and that was perfect. Such an engaging story filled with fabulous characters! I will be anxiously awaiting the other sisters stories as promised in the letter from the author.

Author Bio –
When I grew up I wanted to be an underwater archaeologist or an astronaut but I ended up in a library. Everyone laughed as I’m not a naturally quiet person but I loved it. I went on to become a professional librarian for the money and the glamour. Not finding quite enough of either my husband and I set up a bookshop. We didn’t find much there either so I started writing. Now I have loads of money and glamour but only in the pages of my books! In the meantime I dive and look at the stars.
