Can the Love Heart Lane community pull together once more to help save Foxglove Farm?  And can Isla save her home…and her marriage?

Review
Christie Barlow is one of my favourite authors and after reading Love Heart Lane earlier in the year I didn’t think it was possible for her to write anything better, but yet again she’s managed to create something which is utterly wonderful. Foxglove Farm is a wonderful additional to the Love Heart Lane series and the perfect summer read.


This time the focus of the story is on Isla and Drew Allaway, childhood sweethearts who now live at Foxglove Farm with their sons Finn and Angus. After years of happy marriage Isla has noticed a change in Drew. He’s become withdrawn, argumentative and claiming its time Isla went back to work instead of living off his handouts. Luckily distraught Isla has her friends in Heartcross to rally round her and give support and if Drew’s moods weren’t enough to cope with a series of mishaps lead to Isla and Drew fighting to save their home.

This is a wonderful novel which at the core has the message that sometimes even the strongest of us are not ok and are suffering on the inside and that its okay to ask for help. Despite the serious side to this novel its balanced perfectly with plenty drama and fun. Birthday llamas, grannies on Tinder and mountains of bunting all add their own touch of joy to this wonderful story.

Martha and Nate are new arrivals to the village and they give the residents of Heartcross plenty of drama while they settle in. I love that new characters have been added into the mix, but it was lovely to find out more about Isla and Drew and of course catch up with how things are going for Flick and Fergus from Love Heart Lane.

This was an absolute joy to read, it’s a wonderful uplifting story which will definitely leave you with a great big smile on your face, the only downside is I read it far too quickly, so now I’m impatiently waiting with fingers crossed that’s there’s another book by Christie out very soon.

Thank you so much to Christie Barlow and the publishers for sending me a copy to review and to Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to be part of the blog tour.

I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should contact a caster of spells that could help me cast a spell to bring him back, but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice but to try, I contacted, the caster of spells, and he told me that there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he released the love spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was about 4 p. m. My ex called me, I was so surprised, and answered the call and all he said was that he was sorry for everything that happened that he wanted to return to me, that he loves me so much.

  3. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Great can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Great . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:
