This was a delightful read, I always enjoy a novel by Beth Prentice and this one was full of such wonderful characters, humour, romance and a mystery, that I was sad to part with the characters at the end.
Down on her luck, Tilly inherits half of a farm and a farmhouse, while not exactly what she was expecting, she is determined to make a go of it and meet the challenges she is faced with head-on.
The other half of the farm is owned by the McKenzie men. Noah, the gorgeous man that he was, is always there to help Tilly out. There were some fabulous moments between these two and plenty to keep a smile on my face.
Noah’s granddad Wally was a right character and forever getting himself into trouble and when Tilly and Wally got together, watch out, there’s plenty of fun times.
I enjoyed seeing Noah’s dad slowly come out from under his grief after each interaction with Matilda, she certainly brought out the best in him. Cooking really was the way to his heart and happy memories. Mind you, Tilly’s cupcakes were happily devoured by all the men and they were more than happy to take them as payment for any help they gave her. I personally am glad Tilly does live near me, I’d be on a diet every other week if she did.
Apart from the delightful characters, there are of course the less delightful, and in such a small town, it seems everybody has an agenda.
Somebody wants Tilly out and there are plenty of potential suspects for all the bad things that are thrown at Tilly. It was interesting uncovering the truth that had been hidden for many years.
The animals in this story play just as much of a role as the people and provided plenty of laughs, especially one scene with Goatie and her attorney. And Clifford the dog turns out to be a real hero.
I really hope I get to catch up with Till, Noah, Wally and….. Again soon.
