I liked the sound of this book as I love stories about women walking away from a bad situation then living their best life. This book is about city girl Holly, who after a break up decides to take a chance on saving her childhood sweet shop whilst starting a new life in her childhood village.
Hannah Lynn is a multi award winning novelist. Publishing her first book, Amendments – a dark, dystopian speculative fiction novel, in 2015. Her second book, The Afterlife of Walter Augustus – a contemporary fiction novel with a supernatural twist – went on to win the 2018 Kindle Storyteller Award and the Independent Publishers Gold Medal for Best Adult Ebook.
Born in 1984, Hannah grew up in the Cotswolds, UK. After graduating from university, she spent 15 years as a teacher of physics, first in the UK and then Thailand, Malaysia, Austria and Jordan. It was during this time, inspired by the imaginations of the young people she taught, she began writing short stories for children, and later adult fiction.
Now settled back in the UK with her husband, daughter and horde of cats, she spends her days writing romantic comedies and historical fiction. Her first historical fiction novel, Athena’s Child, was also a 2020 Gold Medalist at the Independent Publishers Awards.

This book is very good, it has engaging characters, a great story, full of twists and turns – practically everything you could possibly want in a good book.
I love Holly and was willing her on, throughout the book, I agreed with most of her decisions and was strangely protective of her, as if she were a good friend.
The Cotswolds is featured and described so beautifully in this book that I’m hoping to visit myself soon…it’s definitely on my bucket list!
The book brings back memories of my childhood sweet shop where I’d pop in regularly to buy a quarter bag of Rhubarb & Custard, Aniseed Twists or Cola Cubes (if you know, you know 😉 ).
It’s an enjoyable read, and I’m happy to find out that is the first book in a series, so the story will continue – Yay!!
So, make sure you grab a copy to read before the second book drops!
Thanks for reading!
