Waste Not, Want Not in Applewell – ARC Book Review

Waste Not, Want Not in Applewell (Applewell Village Book 1) by [Lilac Mills]

George can’t throw anything away. But he’s in danger of throwing away this opportunity to be loved…

George Nightingale is a hoarder with a house full of junk. For years he’s kept it a secret, rarely leaving his house and keeping social interactions to a minimum, but his carefully balanced system is now under threat…

Nessa Millbrook can’t wait to get settled into her new home in quaint, rural Applewell. Everyone in the village is so friendly – except her neighbour, George, who wants nothing to do with her. But Nessa isn’t one to back down from a challenge and she’s determined to win George over.

The years have taught George to shield his heart and trust no one. Yet Nessa keeps reaching out to him – does he have the courage to take a chance, and reach back?

A gorgeously heartwarming romance with characters readers will fall in love with, perfect for fans of Holly Martin and Portia MacIntosh.

Lilac Mills has recently become one of my favorite authors after reading her holiday series. So I am jolly excited when I got a chance to read this book, a brand new book by Lilac Mills.

Meet George, who is a loner, grumpy and always keeps to himself, never really talks to anyone in Applewell. Then meet Nessa, who moves into the cottage just opposite to where he lives. Nessa is determined to be friends with her neighbor George, even though her new friends tells her that it was fruitless. George seemed to be interested in Nessa and didn’t realize that his life will change for good.

I actually enjoyed reading the story! The story is told from the perspectives of George and Nessa so we know as a reader, how the characters feel about each other. The romance between them is so cute and heartwarming that I was so hooked into the story and vowed that the two will eventually date–which they eventually did!!! Despite George being a grumpy character in the beginning, I got warmed to his character and even Nessa too. The author did a good job, keeping the reader into the story! Besides, I really like the book cover too, which got attracted me to the book besides the author. Though the ending was a bit predictable, I was happy with the ending. One of the cutes, heartwarming romance novels I have read.

Thank you Netgalley and publisher for the ARC! The review is based on my honest opinion only. Worth five stars!

Lilac Mills lives on a Welsh mountain with her very patient husband and incredibly sweet dog, where she grows veggies (if the slugs don’t get them), bakes (badly) and loves making things out of glitter and glue (a mess, usually). She’s been an avid reader ever since she got her hands on a copy of Noddy Goes to Toytown when she was five, and she once tried to read everything in her local library starting with A and working her way through the alphabet.

She loves long, hot summer days and cold winter ones snuggled in front of the fire, but whatever the weather she’s usually writing or thinking about writing, with heartwarming romance and happy-ever-afters always on her mind..
