    Highly recommended!

    It was one of those day when you feel blue when I read this book and it improved my mood and made me smile. It's a funny, quirky and entertaining read, you will root for the characters and will not be able to put this book down. I liked the humor, the plot, and the well written characters. I look forward to reading other books by this author. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Wonderful read

    This book was a pleasure to read from start to finish. Beth Corby has gone onto my auto-buy list thanks to this book. Hannah was a lovely lead character. I found her journey throughout the story very relatable. It was very gratifying watching her grow and come into her own as the story progressed and I found myself rooting for her to realise her dreams , win the guy and the inheritance. I also loved moody Alec and watching the connection between him and Hannah develop as they completed each task. Jane and Mrs C were wonderful supporting characters as well and I like the idea that Hannah has now inherited them as well as the Laurels. Hannah’s family (specifically Lauren and Nicholas) and Mrs Jennings whilst not always pleasant were great foils. And last but not least Donald. It was a joy getting to know him at the same time as Hannah did. I loved every task he set her and how his story was revealed through each letter. His letters made me laugh and even cry a little as well. Such a colourful, brave and bold character. 5 star read!!

    A great read!

    This was the first book I have read by this author. I enjoyed the whole storyline. It would be a great read for teens to adults. A nice light read with interesting twists. A book that reminds us of the little things. Well done!

    Nice debut novel

    This was a good debut novel but, while it was enjoyable, I found that the pacing was rather slow at times. There's slow burn and then there's a lack of spark; this book seemed to have the latter for me. I could relate to Hannah quite a bit. The one who seems to be the family misfit? The one who isn't sure what she wants to be when she grows up? All things that a lot of people have dealt with over the years. Having her great-uncle Donald take a shine to her in one afternoon, and then send her on a quest to find herself (and him) was a beautiful thing to see. Normally I'm not a fan of flashback story telling, but this wasn't quite like that. Getting to know Donald from his youth through his betrayal by his sister to his later years was a bit heart-breaking. He seemed happy enough, but had he truly ever loved or been loved? That seemed sad to me, but he was able to do some real good for a few special people. I was not happy with Alec and him sidling up to Lauren. Logically I can see what he was trying to do, but he did really hurt Hannah in doing so. And the whole subplot with Mrs. Jennings seemed to be added simply for additional (and unnecessary) drama; it didn't add anything to my enjoyment of the story, and rather annoyed me instead. But the writing itself is quite good. Characters are well-formed, dialogue is well-done, and the whole concept was a delight. I look forward to reading more by this author in future.
