🥂🥂🥂🥂HAPPY PUBLICATION DAY CHRISTIE 🥂🥂🥂🥂 Starcross Manor, the fourth in the Love Heart Lane series, is out today!!!! I’m delighted to be kicking of the blog tour today!!

Many thanks to Rachel Gilbey of Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on the blog tour and to One More Chapter for my advanced e-copy of Starcross Manor which I received through Netgalley.

The Blurb

Dying to know more about the brooding and mysterious Flynn Carter and the secrets behind his plans for Starcross Manor?

You won’t want to miss the next spellbinding chapter in the Love Heart Lane series – where friends are there for you no matter what.

When Julia Coleman meets Flynn Carter again in the cosy village of Heartcross it can only mean trouble. Flynn might be rich, brooding and sexy, but Julia knows first-hand he’s ruthless and she plans to watch his every move.

When Julia discovers Flynn’s plans for beautiful Starcross Manor her greatest fears come true.  Because Flynn’s dreams of turning Starcross into a luxury hotel could ruin Julia’s dreams…and finish off the community of Heartcross for good.

Flynn makes it clear he doesn’t want trouble, and he’s not the man Julia thinks he is.  As he sets about convincing the community he’s changed, he hopes he can convince Julia to give him another chance too…

What Did I Think?

I love heading to Scotland and to the village of Heart Cross. This is my fourth trip to this gorgeous place and I know it’s not going to be my last. I adore the characters Barlow has created in this series and Starcross Manor is no different.

Julia gets a proper blast from the past when Flynn Carter appeared back in her life during the on-goings of Clover Cottage and I knew this would open a whole new chain of interesting events … why else introduce someone to cause friction and oh boy there is friction … and sparks!!! Julia is convinced this leopard hasn’t changed his spots after causing her heartache over the sale of her grandfather’s property and then the heartbreak when he left her friend at the altar…. is this rather dashing man the ruthless business man she knew??

I’ve come to know and love the residents of Heart Cross and I was delighted to get to know B&B owner Julia better after having met her in the previous novels. She’s a genuinely nice person who wants the best for her friends but she doesn’t suffer fools gladly. But her heart and her head are in conflict when she becomes reacquainted with the delicious Flynn. Should she follow her knowledge or should she take a chance?

I was entranced as the story played out before me. I love the community spirit she’s created in Heart Cross. Everyone pulling together when the chips are down and the atmosphere when there is something to celebrate. I would love to relocate to this fictional village if I could. The thought of being welcomed into such a close knit caring village, away from the stresses and strains of the rat race would be bliss #agirlcandream. This is an ideal addition to the series and I can’t wait for the next instalment, The Lake House when it’s out later this year.
