Can a new shop change the village’s future – and Rowena’s?
Single mum Rowena is always looking for ways for her and Nia, her four-year-old daughter, to live more sustainably. So when she visits a zero-waste shop in Cardiff, she’s inspired to start one up in her home village of Foxmore, where local businesses and artisan shops are a core part of the community.
For Huw, it’s love at first sight when he bumps into Rowena the day he moves to Foxmore. But a series of misunderstandings keeps the two from getting closer, and now a conflict of interest over Rowena’s shop might put a stop to any fledgling romance…
When a figure from Rowena’s past makes a surprise appearance, both her shop and her relationship with Huw are suddenly under threat. Can Rowena still realise her corner shop dreams and find love?
A gorgeously fun and feel-good cosy romance, perfect for fans of Sue Moorcroft, Holly Martin and Suzanne Snow.
Lilac Mills has been one of my favorite authors and so I make sure to read each and every single one of her books. This book is the first of the Foxmore village series with Rowena and Huw as the main characters in the book.
Rowena is a single mother of a four-year-old. When she visits a shop in Cardiff, she gets an idea to open a similar type of shop in her home village Foxmore. Huw moves to Foxmore. The two then meet and what initially happened as a misunderstanding turns into a romance. The story also shows how Rowena is struggling to open up her shop while developing a romantic relationship with Huw.
I actually enjoyed reading this story. The beginning part was really funny as i laughed out at some parts. The chemistry between Rowena and Hue, you can actually feel it as a reader and the story itself was engaging. Though the ending was predictable with a Happily Ever After theme, I actually enjoyed reading this book and cannot wait for the second book of the series. Worth four stars!
