Book Review: Return To Bluebell Hill - Rebecca Pugh

As sweet and satisfying as strawberries and cream! This British summertime, get out in the garden with Rebecca Pugh’s sparkling debut novel.

Home is where the heart is…

Jessica McAdams has never belonged anywhere; never truly felt at home. Of course, what did she expect from parents who never made her feel welcome in her own house? Leaving her life in London to return home to the charming country village of Bluebell Hill is harder than she thought. Especially as she never considered she’d be returning under such heart wrenching circumstances…

Clearing out the stunning and imposing Bluebell House after her parents’ death is difficult for Jessica—they never had the best relationship and now it’s too late. Yet spending time in the house that was never a home, having afternoon tea with dear old friend Esme—and sharing hot, sizzling kisses with delectable gardener Rueben!—opens Jessica’s eyes to the potential of Bluebell House… Could this big old, beautiful manor really be her forever home? Is Bluebell Hill where her heart is, has always been?

Jessica soon dares to dream of her very own home with delicious Rueben by her side. But when a deep, dark secret of Bluebell House is unearthed, Jessica’s world is turned upside down…

Will Jessica ever find where her heart truly lies?

An emotional tale of self-discovery, taking chances and romance! Rebecca’s unique British voice feels like coming home again and again.

My opinion.
First, I'd like to congratulate the wonderful Rebecca with her fabulous debut!
I really enjoyed reading Return To Bluebell Hill. The cover is stunning, the characters easy to love and the setting is gorgeous. Rebecca's descriptions of the town are brilliant. Post-card-perfect; just like Bluebell House, I'm sure!
Although Jessica, the main character, is going through an emotional time, the story is still very upbeat. It feels care free and has the perfect male lead to swoon over.
I'm usually not one to comment on writing style - not being a native speaker - but I truly loved Rebecca's writing and beautiful words.
Like I said, I really enjoyed reading it and I'm already excited to read more. Very promising debut!
