Earlier this month, I read and reviewed Cathy Bramley’s, “Ivy Lane” (you can find my review here) and absolutely adored every single second. When asked to take part in the cover reveal for the full story of Appleby Farm, I just couldn’t say no because, like Ivy Lane, the cover is absolutely gorgeous as I’m sure the book will be!
Ready for the cover? Drum roll please…
Appleby Farm is a charming, funny and romantic story for anyone looking for a feel-going, light-hearted read, from the author of bestselling Ivy Lane.
Freya Moorcroft has wild red hair, mischievous green eyes, a warm smile and a heart of gold. She’s been happy working at the café round the corner from Ivy Lane allotments and her romance with her new boyfriend is going ell, she thinks, but a part of her still misses the beautiful rolling hill of her Cumbrian childhood home: Appleby Farm.
Then a phone call out of the blue and a desperate plea for help change everything…
The farm is in financial trouble, and it’s taking its toll on the aunt and uncle who raised Freya. Heading home to lend a hand, Freya quickly learns that things are worse than she first thought. As she summons up all her creativity and determinations to turn things around, Freya is surprised as her own dreams for the future begin to take shape.
Love makes the world go round, according to Freya. Not money. But will saving Appleby Farm and following her heart come at a price?
She now lives in an idyllic Nottinghamshire village with her husband, two daughters and a dog called Pearl.
What do you guys think of the cover? I absolutely love it and it makes me want to head out into the countryside! Have you read Appleby Farm or Ivy Lane?
