    Loved it!

    I loved this book. Great characters, a bit of a mystery, a centuries old fued between two families, and all set in the idyllic sounding Dragonfly Farm, an old farmhouse in Somerset surrounded by acres of ancient apple trees - and cider making, what's not to like! The story is mainly set around two cousins, Tabitha and Georgia. Tab lives at Dragonfly Farm with her great uncle and Georgia is a script writer who lives in London. Tabitha has lived at Dragonfly Farm since a troublesome teenager when her parents split and she wasn't really wanted by either of her flighty parents, so ended up with her great-uncle and aunt who were more like parents to her over the years. But her great aunt died a few years ago and it had been Tab and her great uncle keeping things going until now. Then a tragedy happens and in the will the farm is left between Tab, Georgia and, unexpectedly, Gabriel Culbone, a supposed member of the 'enemy' family, and no-one, including Gabriel, has any idea why, as he doesn't even know his relatives. We also have another Culbone who moves back to the family home across the river from Dragonfly Farm, and he is drawn into the mystery too. The story flips back and forth a little bit to another tragedy years ago, and there are definitely a couple of mysteries that finally get revealed as the story goes on, one I didn't see coming! But just such a lovely story about families and the secrets that are kept, or hidden, over the generations. You can't really go wrong with a Veronica Henry book, I've loved every one I've read, she just draws you into the story and makes you want to keep reading. Perfect!

    Part one of a saga.

    This was a beautiful read and I do hope that this is part one to your next book as I can't wait to read what happens next.

    Cosy summer read

    This is yet another beautifully woven together story from Veronica Henry, I couldn’t believe how quickly I seemed to finish it, I flew through it as I enjoyed every page enormously. There’s a mix of everything in this - history, mystery, feuds, secrets, love and above all family. There’s a great mix of characters, all fully formed and great to read (although some of the names are somewhat unusual!) with good interaction between each other. The story is simple but works well and the Somerset setting sounds glorious. This is a wonderful book to curl up with and just lose yourself in.
