The Summer of Secrets by Tilly Tennant @TillyTenWriter #BlogBlitz @bookouture #Review

I'm delighted to be sharing my review for The Summer of Secrets by Tilly Tennant as part of the blog blitz today. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...

Author:          Tilly Tennant

Book:               The Summer of Secrets

Publication Day:  March 14th 2018

Can new love grow when you dig up old secrets?

Recently engaged, Harper Woods wakes up every morning on Silver Hill Farm feeling like the luckiest woman in the world. She has escaped her troubled past, outside the rolling yellow cornfields go on for miles and just downstairs are the gorgeous tea rooms she’s always dreamed of owning.

But Harper is about to discover something that will change her luck forever. For better or worse? She has no idea. Not until an expert can identify whether the jewellery she found hidden in the farm’s foundations is priceless, or utterly worthless…

As news of the discovery spreads through the village, there are others who’d like to lay their claim to the fortune. In particular, Will Frampton, handsome recluse and Lord of Silver Hill House, the crumbling stately home on the other side of the hill in desperate need of renovation.

It seems everyone wants a piece of the sparkling prize hidden under the Silver Hill tea rooms. 

But as relationships are tested and tea cakes begin to fly, will anyone catch the romance blossoming in the most unexpected of places?

Love and laughter are the biggest reward of them all in this utterly heart-warming romance, perfect for fans of Jane Linfoot, Debbie Johnson and Jenny Colgan.

After seeing the gorgeous cover I couldn't wait to lose myself in The Summer of Secrets. So what did I think...

If you are looking for a feel good story then look no further The Summer of Secrets swept me away with a fabulous mystery, friendships and of course romance. The discovery of the buried jewellery really sets off a chain reaction of events with some surprising results along the way. There was of course plenty of drama keeping me entertained with some lovely little twists to keep me on my toes.

Harper is such a likeable character and I loved the sound of Silver Hill Farm and could just imagine calling in for a lovely cup of tea and of course a slice of cake. Her friendship with Pip was lovingly written and it was lovely to see them looking out for each other. We also follow Cesca as she gets tied up with the events at the farm and Silver Hill House. 

The plot moves at a lovely pace with the characters keeping me fully invested in the story. I just had to know if it would turn out alright in the end for them! Tilly Tennant has created such a gorgeous story and I really couldn't have asked for a better escape from all of the snow, rain and the dreary weather.

Uplifting, warm and feel good - A gorgeous combination!

With thanks to Noelle at Bookouture for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.

Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl, newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written word by embarking on a degree in English and creative writing. She wrote a novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets them.

Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn was her debut novel; published in 2014 it was an Amazon bestseller in both the UK and Australia. In 2016 she signed to the hugely successful Bookouture and is currently working on her next Tilly Tennant novel. She also writes as Sharon Sant, where she explores the darker side of life, and Poppy Galbraith, where things get a little crazier.
