Nate Greene has his own reasons for staying away from Little Woodville. Nate needs to reconcile his past and tackle the long overdue task of decluttering the place he once loved - his abandoned wood workshop, filled to the brim with his creations.

He secures a stall at the local market to showcase his wares and it isn't long before the workshop reignites the passion he once shared with a special person.

Thrown together Morgan and Nate have their own personal battles to overcome.

Can the beautiful little Cotswold village teach two lost souls what matters,

and more importantly, will it give them each something they didn't come here for? Love...

 My Thoughts

This was such a relaxing and enjoyable read. Both Morgan and Nate have a lot in common, especially their strong sense of family ties. Both trying to come to terms with their feelings about the deaths of their mother, they also feel a pull towards their childhood homes and to the way of life they were brought up in. They also have a sense of guilt around their parts in different stages of their mothers' lives. Morgan and Nate have a lot in common and form a connection from the moment they meet. 

    The setting of Little Woodville is perfect for the story. A pretty rural village, it provides the ideal backdrop, with a range of varied characters who all share friendship and concern for each other, especially the older residents. There are some emotional moments for the characters along with the lighter moments. Branston, the dog, is adorable and the slow burn romance is just in step with the story. This is a perfect summer read.

In short: new starts, friends, family,
