For two years Freya Greene has hidden the fact that she’s totally and utterly in love with her best friend Rome Lancaster. It’s not been easy – they work together in his glasswork business, she lives above his workshop and, he’s completely gorgeous. But Rome has never shown any sign of returning those feelings. Until now…
Lately they’ve shared affectionate moments and words heavy with meaning. Yet Freya knows Rome has a damaged heart. After losing his fiancée in a tragic accident, he’s not allowed himself to fall in love.
Freya has already had her heart broken by a man who couldn’t let go of a past love. Can she risk it happening again? Rome and Freya have a friendship that could blossom into something more. Are they both brave enough to take that chance?
Another great read from Holly, we are back on Hope Island and this time we follow Freya and Rome’s story. I love the fact we see characters from the other books appearing too. A nice light hearted that I really enjoyed.

Freya Moorcroft has wild red hair, mischievous green eyes, a warm smile and a heart of gold. She’s been happy working at the café round the corner from Ivy Lane allotments and her romance with her new boyfriend is going well, she thinks, but a part of her still misses the beautiful rolling hills of her Cumbrian childhood home: Appleby Farm.
Then a phone call out of the blue and a desperate plea for help change everything…
The farm is in financial trouble, and it’s taking its toll on the aunt and uncle who raised Freya. Heading home to lend a hand, Freya quickly learns that things are worse than she first thought. As she summons up all her creativity and determination to turn things around, Freya is surprised as her own dreams for the future begin to take shape.
Love makes the world go round, according to Freya. Not money. But will saving Appleby Farm and following her heart come at a price?
Cathy Bramley is a new author to me and I am not sure why I hadn’t read any of her books before as they are wonderful. The cover design looks amazing, I felt like I just wanted to leap in and start reading. I loved the whole concept of Freya helping her family out when they needed her the most and quite literally saving the day. There are animals which is great as I am a big animal lover and there is romance. I loved this book from start to finish and now want to read all Cathy’s other books. Such a lovely story and I am glad I have found a new author I absolutely love.

It’s the lazy end of summer and Freya is about to start her A levels. Her brother Joe died a year ago, but she is slowly coming to terms with his death. She is beginning to feel ready for something new – a change. And then a railway accident brings her by chance into contact with the gorgeous Gabes. Freya is drawn not just to Gabes himself and his blond good looks, but everything about him, including his large, shambolic, warm and loving family, which seems to Freya so different to her own family of three.
And then Gabes’ clearly troubled older brother makes it clear he is interested in Freya – and Freya has some decisions to make about what she really wants.
I have read one of Jane Green’s books before and was a bit disappointed towards the end, but I have to say I enjoyed this one a little better. Great characters that you feel you may know them, fantastic little story that you just want to curl up under a blanket with. These books are part of a series but can also be read standalone, which I think is great. Jane has a brilliant way of making you feel as if you are there with her vivid images that just leap off the page. Cover looks nice and bright too. Nice, easy read, I finished it in two days.
