  • A charming story

    It's a pleasure to read such a charming story about a woman faced with so many important decisions in her life and tackling them with eloquence, grace, and the love of family, and friends. Emily's life is a mess. She finds out her boyfriend, Greg, cheats on her with her co-worker right before she heads off to her best friend, Beth's wedding in Glendale, Scotland. While there, she realizes there are more changes in store and an unexpected attraction to local minister, Reverend Brodie Stewart which comes at an inopportune time. This is definitely a cozy, feel-good story, about following your dreams with the support and love of family and friends. The Glendale community is endearing and a place where I would love to live.  Emily is so very strong and brave to change her life and follow her dreams.  I especially enjoyed Brodie's valued advice and unwavering support as well as his quirky humor. If you enjoy cozy romances with inviting locations and well-developed characters, I recommend this charming book. Thank you to Ms. Walters for giving me the opportunity to review this book with no expectation of a positive review.

  • Tear-jerker, Heartwarming read!

    This was such an adorable story to read, full of ups and downs. I honestly didn’t like it that much in the beginning but as the story progressed, it just kept getting better. I couldn’t put it down and eventually stayed up past midnight to see how it all ended. I totally fell in love with the gorgeous setting, the characters and the storyline, for me everything falls right into place. The main characters' chemistry came out surprisingly amazing. You never knew what was going to happen, but the feeling of them belonging together really came through at the end. There were deep meanings to the topics discussed that I really love in this story and the author managed to get it all across very well. This was an amazing read and I can't wait to check out more of Victoria Walters' books. This book will be released on February 5, 2020. A big thank you to HeraBooks and Netgalley for the opportunity to read an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

  • Unputdownable read

    I read the first book in the series, Coming Home to Glendale Hall, last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, so when I found out the sequel, New Beginnings At Glendale Hall, was ready I just had to have it. I was not disappointed and it was certainly worth the wait. Whilst the main focus of the book is on Emily Prescott and her annoying boyfriend/ex-boyfriend Greg. Beth, Drew, Izzy, and house-keeper Sally from the first book all played their roles too in this one. Emily is best-friends with Beth. She is the friend that Beth turned to all those years ago when she found out she was pregnant and had no-where and no-one to help her. The pair have kept in touch even though Beth now lives in Scotland and Emily in London. With the wedding of Beth and Drew nearing, Emily’s boyfriend casually lets it slip that he can’t attend the wedding as he has to work, although others at his place of work have been given subsequent time off. He then goes out one evening stating that a friend needs him but returns in the early hours and with a message from a woman on his phone about their night together. Trouble is the woman is a colleague of Emily’s too. Hurt and wanting to put some distance between them she heads to Scotland early, telling everyone she wanted to make the wedding cake she promised to Beth there rather than trying to transport it. Greg doesn’t seem to be able to get the message though that Emily needs some time to work out how she feels as he hounds her with phone calls and telling her it was a one-off and a mistake – But was it? New Beginnings At Glendale Hall was everything I hoped it would be. I adored the first book but this one was so amazing, even with the annoying rat Greg playing a part. Emily is such a beautiful character who deserved to be treated with respect, not like a doormat. Her journey of self-discovery is certainly worth reading about, especially being set in the scenic Scottish highlands and at the amazing Glendale Hall. The book reminded me of the film, Four Weddings and a Funeral (without a funeral I might add). It is just such an interesting, engaging, and unputdownable read. There were plenty of poignant moments alongside some humour too and there was also the amazing quirky character of Vicar Brodie who you just can’t help loving. Whilst it is the second in a series and I do believe that you should read the first book before reading this one, it is not essential as it does work as a standalone too. It is a relaxing read with plenty going on to keep you entertained the whole way through. I do hope that we will be back at Glendale Hall once again as I miss it already.

  • A heartwarming, inspiring, and feel-good romance.

    Coming Home to Glendale Hall was my first book by Victoria Walters, which focused on single parent Beth who got a second chance at love with her first boyfriend Drew. This time we follow Emily's story, who is Beth's friend, and how she tries to put back her life after everything falling apart. She is getting ready to travel to Glendale to attend Beth and Drew's wedding and bake their wedding cake, but decided to leave earlier than planned after she discovers that her boyfriend Greg cheated on her. It was really great to be back in Glendale, a small town in the Scottish Highlands, and get reacquainted with my favorite characters from the previous book. This book was about friends and family, chasing your dreams, and finding love when you least expect it. Emily was so lucky with the group of people around her that had her back no matter what. There were a lot of difficult decisions she had to make, and I was happy that she had people around her that could give her advise and support. This book like the previous one was very heartwarming and a feel-good romance. The pacing was great and I loved that the author took the time to tell Emily's story. I felt like I was in Glendale together with the characters, and I really enjoyed spending time with all of them. The characters were great and they really elevated the story. My favorite thing about this book was the setting and the community of Glendale. It just felt very peaceful and it made me feel very cozy. This book is so much more than a romance novel. For me the romance in this book was not the most important thing that was highlighted. This book was Emily's journey to self-discovery and believing that anything is possible. That was so much more important than her finding love again. There are so many things in this book that people can relate to, which I loved. I really enjoy this author's writing, and I look forward to reading more of her books.
