The Winter Cottage: sweet small town romance (Applemore) Kindle Edition
'Absolutely delightful - The Winter Cottage is romantic and fun' - Marian Keyes
Escape to the Scottish Highlands with this sweet second chance romance packed full of family, friendship, and love, set in a small town full of characters you'll adore...When Rilla Clark’s reclusive professor dad dies she breaks her travel plans and heads to his cottage in the Scottish Highlands to sort out his affairs. She’s got a plan: get in, clear up, and get out. The little village of Applemore holds memories for her, but looking back might just open up her heart, which she’s kept well-guarded until now.
Lachlan Fraser isn’t exactly wild about inheriting the title of Laird of Applemore. The castle is falling apart at the seams and he can’t see why his three sisters love it so much. Gathered together at their family estate, the battle of wills over what to do with the house is just beginning when into their life walks Rilla, who they haven’t seen for over fifteen years…
Old friendships and long-hidden emotions are rekindled as the romance of a Highland winter works its magic… will Rilla and Lachlan discover that home isn’t a place, but a feeling?
Author's note: The Winter Cottage is a standalone novel with a guaranteed HEA. Discover The Flower Farm and Midsummer House for more sweet romantic stories set in the small town of Applemore, and look out for Christmas at Applemore, coming later this year!

I can't recommend highly enough.

I can't recommend highly enough.
Set in Scotland, this is the first in the Applemore series, and introduces us to Rilla and the Fraser family.
Lachlan has a huge decision to make. And a huge inheritance tax bill to go with it. He loves his life in Edinburgh, having built a successful brewing company from the ground up. But now he is the heir to Applemore, in the Scottish highlands. But does he want to rescue the family seat, or sell it to pay the tax man?
Rilla has come to Apolemore to clear her father’s cottage after his death. Her future is planned out, Rilla is not one to put roots down anywhere. She has nit been back to Applemore for many years after an accident during a family holiday there.
Neither has much time to make the choice: to stay, or to go.
The Winter Cottage is a terrific read, made for rainy days in front of a fire with a warming cup of tea.
It's a really cute start to what is going to be a little romcom universe, with a book about Bella's flower farm following in Spring! Think super cosy, a cute cast of close of family members and people from the village, gentle humour. A big hug of a book.
