Happy Monday all!
I just loved everything about this book! The setting, the characters, the storyline, it was the perfect little escape for today’s crazy times!
There’s a newcomer to the village of Heartcross and she’s never been more in need of a friend. Ella is ready to start afresh ––and that could mean there’s love on the horizon in the form of the gorgeous Roman, the local water taxi driver. Every day Roman is there to ferry Ella to the restaurant on the other side of the lake and every night he makes sure she gets home safe. But Roman has secrets of his own…
Can the Love Heart Lane community offer Ella a chance of a new life? Or will the ghosts of her past catch up with her?
What a fun feel good story this was. This was the fifth book in Christi Barlow‘s heartwarming Love Heart Lane series. each book in the series can definitely be read as a standalone, however there are appearances from characters in the previous books. Ella has reach rock-bottom. After the tragic death of her parents Ella met a man she thought was the love of her life who then turned out to be a complete scoundrel. Unwilling to give up Ella takes her friend Callie up on her offer to move to Heartcross. Heartcross is the definite cure. Not only does Ella have a new great job, make new wonderful friends, but she also meets the perfect man.
Loved this Story! The wonderful whimsical characters, the charming delightful setting, the friendship, the romance, the love. Ella was such a great character I loved how much spunk and trust she had even though she had gone through so much. Roman the love interest was probably too good to be true, but hey a girl can dream. Gorgeous, kind, smart, supportive, caring. The setting of the Lake House was perfection. A gorgeous manor with a magical history and a stunning setting, with the only way to get to it by boat. can’t wait for the next book in the series, I’m thinking it’s going to be Callie‘s turn.
