Book review: The Green Hills of Home - Emma Bennet

The Green Hills Of Home

The blurb.
Gwen Jones, a young Welsh writer, is desperate to save the family farmhouse from being sold from under her critically ill mother and herself. When she lands a lucrative three-book deal with an eminent publisher, she thinks her problems are all over. However, Gwen's need to be near her sick mother means she’s unable to travel to London to work with her devilishly desirable editor, John Thatcher, and he must come and stay with her in Wales. Handsome and eminently capable, cosmopolitan John is used to getting his own way and has plans for the future which certainly don’t include being distracted by pretty Welsh girls; nevertheless when he journeys into the country to work with Gwen it’s not long before he finds himself falling in love with her, as well as the house she’s so anxious to save. But is John capable of loving anyone as much as his job? And when he has to decide between his goals and Gwen, which will he choose?

My opinion.
First things first: what a fabulous cover! Love at first sight!
I absolutely loved reading this book. Gwen is a lovely main character and I really, really enjoyed her story. She just scored her first book deal and she couldn't be more thrilled. Her dream of becoming a published author is finally coming true! But will the book deal save her beloved home? Gwen is an easy to love person. She's down to earth, warm, caring,... You'll adore her from the very first page.
Another thing I liked very much, is that both Gwen's and John's perspective were considered, which made it easy to relate to and fall in love with both characters. The story is far from predictable and Emma Bennet will treat you to some interesting twists and some beautiful moments.
The Green Hills of Home is a sweet, heart warming story. 
Emma Bennet just made the choice very easy: your next holiday destination is... Wales!
