Joy Cartier has been to some of the most beautiful places in the world – but none of them have ever felt like home. So moving into a tiny cottage in the idyllic village of Bramble Hill, walking distance from her childhood home, seems like the perfect plan.
That is, until she gets there. The surly inhabitants of Britain’s Friendliest Village are anything but welcoming. Even her neighbour, reclusive Hollywood star Finn Mackenzie, takes one look at her and walks in the other direction.
But when the village animosity steps up a gear, it is the infuriatingly brooding Finn who keeps coming to her rescue. Slowly Joy begins to realise that maybe a happy home isn’t about where you live, but who you’re with…
Received from NetGalley for honest review!
The story begins when Joy moves into her new home and new village. She gets on her hot next door neighbors bad side, and then the villagers seem to hate her for no reason as well. When things start to get really bad for Joy, the next door neighbor seems to come to her rescue often for someone who doesn't seem to like her, but Finn, and Joy are having a hard time hiding their attraction to each other. However, Finn has been hurt in the past, and Joy isn't at all sure it would be a good idea to get involved with him.
But these two keep getting pushed together no matter how much they try to avoid it.
This book was very interesting, and funny. I liked the plot, and Joy a whole lot. I also liked Casey, and Joy's brother as well. I, however, didn't really care much for Finn. I totally understood the things he went through could make any one weary, but he took it to a whole new extreme that made him cowardly in my eyes. That was a major let down, but other then that I enjoyed everything else about the book!
