About the book
When Lottie Foster's grandmother's best friend Gwen dies, she leaves Lottie her lovely home, Cuckoo Cottage. Lottie loves the cottage but Matt, a charming local builder, points out that beneath its charm it is falling apart. Luckily he is always on hand to help with the problems that somehow seem to keep cropping up But is he just a bit too good to be true? Certainly Will, Lottie’s closest neighbour, seems to think so. Lottie plans to set up her own business renovating vintage caravans. She hasn’t told anyone about the project she has cooked up with Jemma from The Cherry Tree Café to repurpose Gwen’s old caravan and turn it into a mobile tearoom. But before she can finally enjoy living with her legacy she must uncover who she can trust, and who to avoid. And with two men vying for her attention, can she find love in her new home…?
Lets just take a minute to appreciate that absolutely stunning cover. The colours are warm and inviting. Very eye catching and that's the thing I love about Heidi Swain's book covers, they are all just so perfect.
Coming home to Cuckoo Cottage is a truly beautiful book set in the lovely village of Wynbridge, a village we all know and have fallen in love with from previous books by Heidi.
This book also sees the return of the fabulous characters that live in Wynbridge that we have met before and it is so good to catch up with them and see what they are up now now.
As well as the previous characters popping up throughout this book, we meet a brand new character called Lottie Foster. She inherits Cuckoo Cottage from her Grans best friend Gwen. Lottie is delighted and moves in straight away and starts planning great things for the property. Along the way she meets a hunky local builder Matt, however Matt keeps finding problems in the cottage that need fixed, it just seems its one thing after another for poor Lottie. From the minute we meet Matt as a reader you just feel all is not as it seems and there seems to be something not quite right about him.
Lottie catches the eye of her neighbour Will, he seems like the perfect man for Lottie and always looks out for her. With Matt and Will both competing for her it is a tricky love triangle and its not till the end of the book when we get to find out if and who Lottie finds love with.
Coming Home to Cuckoo Cottage really is a lovely and enjoyable read from start to finish, and from the opening pages the book really grabs your attention and you just cannot put it down! So so easy to read.
