As Samantha Wishaw watches the love of her life marry another woman, she’s ready to give up hope of finding her happy ever after.
But when a chance encounter leads Sam to find friendship in Thomas – a lonely, grumpy elderly widower living at derelict Hedgehog Hollow – her life is about to change forever.
Glad to have a distraction from family feuds and match-making, Sam vows to fulfil Thomas and his wife, Gwendoline’s, dreams of restoring Hedgehog Hollow to its former glory, and to open a hedgehog rescue centre.
Throwing herself into the task at hand, little does Sam realise that the keys to love and happiness may also be found at Hedgehog Hollow, when she least expects it…
I loved this story so much, I have never read any of Jessica’s books before but I am certainly going to be reading them from now on. This book cover looks so summery and inviting which made me delve in straight away.I read it in a day as I didn’t want to put it down. I loved the story line and really warmed to Sam, the strong bond she has with her grandad reminded me how my grandad and I are together which was nice. I loved Thomas even though he was grumpy to begin with you knew deep down that he had things on his mind that he didn’t want to talk to any one about. It upset me how lonely some people can be. Sam’s dad seemed nice too, shame about her mum but everyone has their own story shame she took it out of Sam her whole life. I loved the idea of setting up a hedgehog charity, I can really see Sam excelling at that, I am glad after all she has been through there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I would love a follow on to this book as I would love to hear more about the hedgehog side of things and go back and meet all the characters again. I loved it and it definitely deserves more than 5 stars.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley and Jessica Redland for sending me a copy.
