9780008146924: A Cottage in the Country

What do you do when your best friend has an affair with your husband of twenty-five years? The father of your two children and the person you trusted with your heart? Not to mention the best years of your life …

Well, you pack your bags, grab half of the equity in the house you've both lovingly restored and run away to an idyllic little cottage in the country.

Only, it’s not quite so idyllic when

1) the survey comes back to reveal ‘rustic charm’ actually means rundown.

2) The heavens decide to open on moving day and the rain just keeps on coming.

Maddie Brooks grits her teeth and hires the highly recommended 'man who can', ex-soldier, Lewis Hart. As he rips out the very shabby, and decidedly not-so-chic kitchen, reality sets in. Not only is he the most abrupt person she's ever met, but the man is a Neanderthal!

As the flood waters rise, and the village is cut off, everything that could possibly go wrong, does.

Hitting the big five-o is the final straw. No presents, family or friends?just infuriating Lewis, who can’t leave because the flood has now cut off his exit. How on earth is she going to get through this and put her life back together?

Can Maddie Brooks become that ‘fifty-and-fabulous’ woman of her dreams?

Review:

Praise for Linn B. Halton -

‘A heart-wrenchingly beautiful love story’ – BestChickLit

‘A spiritual, emotional and thought-provoking read with a touch of romance’ – MeMyBooksandI

‘A real page turner’ – Cosmochicklitan on Sweet Occasions

‘It's quite simply as sweet as a cupcake with butter cream and sprinkles.’ – ChicksThatRead on Sweet Occasions

About the Author:

I live in a small village in Gloucestershire with the man I fell in love with, virtually at first sight. We were at a party and our eyes ‘met’ across a crowded room! My days are spent with characters who become friends and Mr Tiggs, a feline with catitude. I always knew that one day I would write romantic novels, but I never dreamed they would have a psychic twist! I’ve experienced many ‘unexplainable’ things, but it took a long time for me to accept the reality of what that means. Love, life and beyond…but it’s ALWAYS about the romance!
