I'm thrilled to be one of the stops on the blog tour for A Home at Honeysuckle Farm and today I will be sharing my review. First of all let's take a look at the description for the book...
One shocking argument and ten-year-old Alice Parker’s world was turned upside down. Her peaceful life at Honeysuckle Farm in the quiet rural village of Brook Bridge swapped for the bustling metropolis of New York City. Alice’s life was changed forever…
A second chance
Now, thirteen years later, Alice’s American dream is over. With her life in tatters, there is only one place Alice wants to be… home at Honeysuckle Farm. So, when Alice learns her beloved Grandie is ill, she knows this is her last chance to heal the family rift.
A forever home?
But secrets still swirl in Brook Bridge, and Alice is no closer to discovering the truth. And for some reason her new friendship with local heartthrob Sam Reid seems to be making the locals tense.
Sick of the lies Alice knows it’s time to lay the past to rest once and for all. But could the truth ruin her hopes of ever calling Honeysuckle Farm home again?

A Home at Honeysuckle Farm has lovely feelings of hope, warmth and emotion along with wonderful descriptions that instantly transported me to Honeysuckle Farm. The secret at the heart of this story made me so curious and I couldn't help but try to come up with different theories over what it could be. What caused the argument that turned Alice's life upside down?
The writing is heartfelt and moving and after a few chapters I felt as if I had known Alice forever. Christie Barlow always manages to create a story that I truly feel a part of and you get a true sense of friendship, family and love. There are some emotional parts as the past is revealed but there is a wonderful balance as Alice reconnects with village life and slowly but surely begins to flourish and discover her self.
Second chances, new beginnings and finding your place in the world are all themes within this story and they all came together to make such a charming and entertaining story. Along with friendships and romance that will leave you with a warm glow!
Five stars from me!
