Review: Meet Me At Willow Hall by Carla Burgess



She thought she’d never see him again…

Rachel Jones’ best friend’s wedding is the perfect distraction from her own broken heart. That is, until the moment she squeezes into her bridesmaid dress and looks up to see the man who walked out of her life three months ago, Anthony Bascombe!

Still just as gorgeous as she remembers, it’s clear Anthony’s been keeping a secret from her and Rachel’s determined to get to the bottom of it! The trouble is, the more time she spends around Anthony, the more she can’t help falling for him…

But Anthony’s already disappeared before, can Rachel trust that this time he’s back for good?

No.


No.
The couple in this book - Rachel and Anthony - meet and have a romance in a previous book, Meet Me Under The Mistletoe, but you don't have to have read it to read this one.
That said, I loved this book so much because I'd read Meet Me Under The Mistletoe.


Nope!


Yep!

I loved this book!
It's such a perfect, feel good, summer romance... I inhaled it from start to finish in three or four hours and stayed up way too late to do so because I couldn't stop reading it.
It was addictive.

The book picks up not long after the events of Meet Me Under The Mistletoe, the first book of Rachel and Anthony's story - don't worry if you haven't read it, each book stands alone - and as the blurb suggests, Rachel and Anthony's happy for now at the end of their first story doesn't last.
Meet Me At Willow Hall deals with the whys of why Anthony pulled a dick move and broke up with Rachel - in a really shitty fashion, btw - and beautifully maneuvers them back together for their happy ever after using Willow Hall and a friends wedding as the perfect backdrop.

The book was sweet, funny, full of feels and romance and pretty free of angst!
I finished the book feeling all warm and fuzzy, giddy and happy, and I just think it's a perfect summer read. 


I love these types of covers. Sweet, summery and whimsical.

  3. I love it when I become addicted to a story and just cannot stop reading! It sounds like this was a lot of fun and probably something I would enjoy. Thanks so much for sharing! I need summery reads right now to take my mind off this awful heat. ;)

  4. Sounds charming, and nice and light and summery besides. And I do love this cover style, which seems really popular for a certain type of contemporary romance these days.
