A House to Mend a Broken Heart by Alison Sherlock #BlogTour @AlisonSherlock @aria_fiction #Review

I am delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for A House to Mend a Broken Heart by Alison Sherlock. I have my review for this heart warming book. First of all let's take a look at the description for the book...

About the book

Everyone is hiding from something...
Full of warmth, laughter, tears and heartache. Find out if there is a happy-ever-after at Willow Tree Hall. Perfect for the fans of Milly Johnson and Lucy Diamond. 

Willow Tree Hall has seen much better days and has been the proud ancestral home of the Earl and Countess of Cranley for centuries.
With no qualifications and escaping her past Annie Rogers takes the job as housekeeper to widowed Arthur, the charming current Earl of Cranley. After a bad fall puts Arthur in hospital, it's up to a reluctant heir apparent Sam Harris, to lend a helping hand and try to find a sustainable future for the Estate.
With the house requiring a full renovation Annie suddenly finds herself completely out of her depth with a team of dodgy builders and Sam watching critically from the side-lines.
With Sam running from his past and Annie hiding from hers, just maybe together they can bring Willow Tree Hall back to life.
The start of a beautiful new series focusing on the lives and loves, trial and tribulations of all those who live and work at Willow Tree Hall.

My Review

I guess I have to mention the lovely cover which definitely attracted my attention along with reading the description for the book my mind was made up. The story pulled me in straight away with an easy going writing style that made me feel so comfortable. I completely loved the feel of the book it had a wonderful sentimental feel to it that just may have slightly tugged at my heart strings. 

The whole family was a delight to get to know and I especially liked Rose with her lively ways and her matchmaking skills. From the disastrous builders to the prickly and reluctant heir Sam, Annie really has her work cut out trying to keep everything running smoothly. Annie is easily likeable, she really does try to do her best even if she sometimes makes mistakes. The house itself was easily imagined thanks to Alison Sherlock's lovely writing and I even felt a little heartbroken when everything seemingly begins to fall apart around them. All of the characters in this book are developed well and I really felt as if I got to know everyone at Willow Tree Hall.

It really was a lovely way to spend a few hours and relax with curled up on the sofa. I loved getting to know the characters and stepping inside Willow Tree Hall. I wished I could have spent a little while longer there which is a definite sign of a an engaging story.

Full of warmth it really is a delightful read!

With thanks to Yasemin at Aria & Netgalley for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
