When Flick Simons returns to the cosy village of Heartcross she only expected to stay for a few days. The white-washed cottages of Love Heart Lane might be her home, but the place holds too many painful memories, and of one man in particular – Fergus Campbell. When a winter storm sweeps in, the only bridge connecting the village to the main land is swept away. As the villagers pull together, Flick finds herself welcomed back by the friends she once left behind. And as the snow begins to melt, maybe there is a chance that Fergus’s heart will thaw too…


I don’t remember but I think this was a free book of the week on Apple Books, so I didn’t have a lot invested in it - but it really grabbed me. It was that kind of gentle rom-com read, where an outsider heads back to the remote village they came from and has to reconnect with their roots and with the people they left behind. I wasn’t expecting the bridge situation which heightened the claustrophic feel, and the whole DNA part was a surprise. It was a wonderful cast of characters and the start of a lengthy series, so I’m glad to have read it!
