    This is a story that invites you into the pages

    Alice James hadn’t had the easiest start in life, moving from foster home to foster home, then ending up homeless, with nowhere and no one to turn to. She is shocked when she is given a lifeline by Ava Mitchell, a resident of Willoughby Close, who helps her get back on her feet, including sorting her out with a job. Alice’s new job is to help Lady Stokeley, the 86-year-old who owns Willoughby Manor. Unfortunately, Lady Stokeley had been diagnosed with terminal cancer, and had decided not to have treatment. Looking after Lady Stokeley is no problem, as she doesn’t want to be fussed over, however her antagonising nephew Henry Trent, wants Alice to do more than just bring his Aunt cups of tea. But Henry has met his match in Alice, and she isn’t afraid to speak her mind. This is the first book of the Willoughby Close series that I have read, so although Alice was new to the series, and the book mainly regarded her, I had missed the build up to the other characters. Never the less, I understood the book perfectly, and enjoyed every minute of it. Ms. Hewitt has written a delicate story surrounding the terminal diagnosis and the deterioration of a lovely, sweet, old lady, who might be dying but she doesn’t want any fuss, and doesn’t want to be treated like an invalid. The intricate characters have been beautifully created, and fit together perfectly. Alice and Henry both clearly like one another, but neither wanted to admit that they did. I mean an heir to the Manor house, and a working class girl from a broken background, what could they possibly have in common? The plot has you caring about the characters, and is richly imaginative. I found myself eager to discover what would happen to Alice, Henry, and of course, Lady Stokeley. Would Alice and Henry get together? Would Lady Stokeley’s ill-health see her leaving the fictional world? I needed to know. This is a story that invites you into the pages and keeps you interested, and fully committed, from beginning to end.

    Charming finale to a lovely series

    In the fourth book of the series we were introduced to Alice James, a young woman who had been through various foster homes and nursed her grandmother until her death, before living rough until she was helped by Ava. Now, she has been employed as Lady Stokeley's live-in carer. Unfortunately, Lady Stokeley's nephew Henry Trent finds Alice thoroughly unsuitable and tries to sack her. Eventually they settle on a one month trial period, but as the time progresses Henry and Alice find they like each other more and more. This is (currently) the final book in the charming Willoughby Close series and it's a classic romance between on the one hand the heir to a baronetcy and on the other a homeless woman, daughter of a drug addict and product of the foster care system. all aided and abetted by the feisty Lady Stokeley. As is to be expected we see all of our favourite characters from the previous books as this series draws to a close. These books can be read in any order, I think I read the fourth book first, but in order to enjoy glimpses into the developments in each character I recommend reading them in order. If you ever find Katie Fforde heroes and heroines a bit two-dimensional then I recommend Kate Hewitt, her novels are what I always hope Katie Fforde's will be but so rarely are.

    Sweet and Emotional Story

    Marry Me at Willoughby Close by Kate Hewitt This is Alice James and Henry Trent's story. It is also continuation of Lady Stokeley's story and the final book in this series. Alice's life has been a struggle for her. She longs for love and to feel wanted. Alice wants to be living life not feeling like she isn't good enough. Henry was raised with everything money could buy but also longs to be loved. He comes across as gruff and mean. Is this Henry's way of protecting his heart? Alice is taking care of Henry's aunt which puts Henry and Alice spending time together. They both are attracted to one another but come from different worlds. Will they let their defenses down in order to take a chance on love? This is a sweet and clean story that is emotional and heartwarming. I enjoyed Alice and Henry's story. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
