Here is a little about the book:
Can love really be found when you stop looking for it…?
As Samantha Wishaw watches the love of her life marry another woman, she’s ready to give up hope of finding her happy ever after.
But when a chance encounter leads Sam to find friendship in Thomas – a lonely, grumpy elderly widower living at derelict Hedgehog Hollow – her life is about to change forever.
Glad to have a distraction from family feuds and match-making, Sam vows to fulfill Thomas and his wife, Gwendoline’s, dreams of restoring Hedgehog Hollow to its former glory, and to open a hedgehog rescue centre.
Throwing herself into the task at hand, little does Sam realise that the keys to love and happiness may also be found at Hedgehog Hollow, when she least expects it…
Escape to Hedgehog Hollow this summer with top 10 bestseller Jessica Redland for the perfect uplifting, feel-good read.
I swear it wasn’t the word HEDGEHOG that made me want to pick up this book, but it certainly played a role. See, I love hedgehogs. Adore them. I have stuffed hedgehogs, hedgehog dog toys and hedgehog figurines. And of course you can see the beautiful hedgehog book sleeve I have from @bookinasweater in my photo. I could go on and on but hey, let’s get back on point here.
When the love of Sam’s life marries her cousin, Sam is more than heartbroken, yet you would never know. As the only bridesmaid in the wedding Sam is nothing but dedicated to her cousin Chloe and keeps her feelings hidden well. When on a mid-wedding errand for Chloe, Sam gets lost and wanders into a nearby farm for directions. Upon finding the owner of the farm collapsed on the floor of the house, being the nurse that she is, Sam is in her zone and saves the elderly man. From this a friendship develops, and though Sam originally was lost when she stumbled onto Hedgehog Hollow, it turns out that it just may be the place she needed to allow herself to be found.
Finding Love at Hedgehog Hollow is truly the feel-good read it’s blurbs claim it to be. You walk into this one thinking you are getting a “cozy romcom like book” from the title, but what you get is so much more. A book about love, loss, heartache, difficult family, and finding yourself again. Veteran author Jessica Redland has given us the uplifting and inspiring read we all need right at this tumultuous time.
This is my first Redland book, and it reads like a Hallmark movie. I laughed, I cried, I felt like I was there. And it has hedgehogs, did I mention the hedgehogs? This is more than the cutesy cover and title, this book is moving and heartfelt and encouraging. It covers family drama like its your own, and leaves you walking away fulfilled. I can’t recommend this read enough. Clearly 5 stars from my perspective. (This one is available now and if you are a kindle unlimited member it is free at the moment).
Oh yeah, and hedgehogs….. did I tell you there was hedgehogs??
Thank you so much to Jessica Redland, Rachel Gilbey from Rachels Random Resources, Boldwood Books, and Netgalley for my gifted copy of this book for my honest and unbiased opinion.
