Here is a little about the book:
Welcome to the idyllic country retreat of Christmas Steepleton, and let Jane Lovering whisk you away with the most heart-warming, romantic and comforting read of the year.
Leaving London and her ex-husband Luc behind, Katie and her 14-year-old daughter Poppy move into their very own, very ramshackle cottage near the village of Christmas Steepleton on the Dorset coast.
Harvest Cottage has been unloved for many years, so the job of bringing it back to life is a slow and expensive one. So, with funds running low, Katie jumps at the chance when a film company asks to use the cottage as a location. But even as things are looking up, as harvest time passes and autumn chill starts to bite, the prospect of a cold winter in the country is daunting.
Some light relief comes from new friend Gabriel, so different from Katie’s exuberant but arrogant ex Luc. Will their friendship blossom into something more romantic, or will the reality of a tough country winter send her and Poppy scurrying back to the comforts of town?
Let Jane Lovering spirit you away to the perfect country escape, far away from the bustle of the city. Just right for fans of Emma Burstall, Fern Britton and Kate Forster.
A country escape? Who the heck wouldn’t want that? I know I would be down for that immediately, but the opportunity to move to a village named Christmas Steepleton? Christmas? Yes I said Christmas Steepleton. I would buy a broken-down cottage that needed fixed up and pack my bags immediately. Jane Lovering has written another family drama centered around this sweet little town in her newest book The Country Escape.
Katie and her 14 year old daughter end up purchasing the tiny, rundown Harvest Cottage in the village of Christmas Steepleton in Devon just after her divorce from her cheating husband. Though dilapidated and in much need of repair, she sees so much potential in the home, now she just needs to find a job to pay for the cost. When the opportunity to use the cottage as a filming location for a movie occurs, Katie can’t afford to turn it down. With some help from her new found friend Gabriel, and some other interesting characters, Katie finds a way to move into a new town, move on from her past, and possibly find new love.
With a lot of laughter and a ton of charm, The Country Escape is quite the heartwarming tale of second chances and starting over. Katie is the kind of girl you can sympathize with, trying to start over after a divorce, and dealing with secrets from her past. There is a cast of characters that are quite quirky and easy to love and Gabriel is the absolute best atypical hero. Not only is this a sweet and exhilarating read but it gives you a ton of chuckles and giggles along the way. Lovering knows how to write a heartfelt read while entertaining you at the same time. I didn’t want this story to end. And again, who wouldn’t want to live in a village named Christmas Steepleton? A delightful read.
Thank you so much to Jane Lovering, Rachel Gilbey from Rachels Random Resources, Boldwood Books, and Netgalley for my gifted copy of this book for my honest and unbiased opinion.
