The House at Greenacres
contemporary fiction, romance, humour
All roads lead home…
When Holly Dryden fled Penhallow Sands nearly a year ago she was determined to put the past – and Rich Turner – behind her. But now an unexpected loss and financial trouble has led her back to the family vineyard and it’s time to tell Rich the truth – he’s a father.
Surrounded by the memories of what they once shared Holly’s anger fades in the glow of Rich’s undeniable love for their son and the way he selflessly steps in to help the vineyard out of trouble. As Holly watches Rich flourish in his new role as father to baby Luke, she realises that though they can’t change the past, the future is still theirs to write…
An uplifting, emotional Cornwall-set romance perfect for fans of Holly Martin and Phillipa Ashley
This is a gentle second chance romance, set in Cornwall and
It is cosy in style and written so as to be fairly
contemporary in language but not explicit in behaviour – the behaviour is
implied as we have 2 pregnancies before marriage in it!
It is very family oriented and lauds the benefits of living
within a multi-generational household unit – even though this can be very
problematic as my mother-in-law would have attested if she admitted it… her
mother being a tyrant..
Overall a very pleasant story and style, but for me a little
too sweet, I prefer more drama and bite.
