Hello book people!
Hope you had an amazing weekend! I try to be as unplugged as possible this weekend and get some quality reading time in! So you might ask why did you not get this review up until now? Well I have loads to catch up on, but I think I’m finally there! And I have to say this book was definitely worth the wait!🌸
A cozy feel good heartwarming small town tale. Mell finds her self on a plane heading to Vermont from the UK to fulfill her best friend Megan’s final wishes. Megan used to spend her summers at the small town of Tansy Falls in Vermont. Not only is Nell there to spread her friends ashes but she has a two week itinerary written by Megan that she has been “ordered“ to abide by. The itinerary leads Nell to meet many lovely colorful characters and takes her out of her comfort zone. This was such a wonderful story about Nell and her really learning to trust herself again. She was such a fabulous character just so authentic and kind. I really loved how well her friend Megan knew her and understood what she needed and what she would gain from her time in this special town. There is a tiny sprinkling of romance in the story but it really is more a tale of self discovery. A charming story that made me happy!
About the Book
Dearest Nell, if you’re reading this letter, I’m already gone. You’re my best friend in the world, and as my last request I’m asking you to lay me to rest hundreds of miles away, in my crazy gorgeous, totally one-of-a-kind hometown of Tansy Falls. I know you’re a born-and-bred city girl, but hear me out. After first losing Adrian, and then me… I know your heart is hurting, Nell. I think you’ll find that you need Tansy Falls as much as I do.
So, I’ve got it all planned out. For two weeks, you’ll be staying at the sweet, local inn and every day you’ll be trying something new. And if you follow my instructions to the letter, you may discover there’s more to my story than you think. A surprise something… or someone at the end of it? Only you can find out!
Some last advice before you set off, Nell. Don’t forget your sturdy boots and make sure to give Boomer, the inn’s resident dog, a belly rub from me. Stay well away from former quarterback Brody Knott (boy, do I have some stories about him!). And finally, let the future bring what it brings. While Tansy Falls may look small, I know better than anyone that new beginnings can be found in all kinds of places. That little Vermont town you’d never heard of? Well, it might suddenly begin to feel just like coming home…
If you love feel-good love stories by ReaAnne Thayne, Debbie Macomber and Robyn Carr, you’ll adore this gorgeous, heart-warming novel about starting over.
