Love Heart Lane – where friends are there for you no matter what
‘A letter, a death, and a baby girl whose name will begin with “L”…’
When Heartcross’ resident clairvoyant tells Molly McKendrick to expect a whole lot of scandal and upset to blow in with the approaching winter storm, Molly doesn’t know what to think.
With a baby on the way any week now, and Christmas not far off, the last thing Molly needs is drama, but when she crosses paths with Bree, a sixteen-year-old homeless girl, and takes her in from the cold, secrets from the past flood the present and Molly, her partner Cam, and their son George, are soon experiencing a holiday season filled with unexpected festive surprises…


 I have read a lot of Christie Barlow's books and I love the charatcters she comes up with, you can picture them in your head as if they are actual people. I also love the title of the books, they just keep getting better and better with every one which is released. Plus adding in the Christmas element to the story makes me what to read all about these characters who will no doubt capture the heart of every reader.

 She’s in your home…
Leigh Simons can’t say for sure what made her do it. A moment of madness, perhaps, but when the young, loud and gorgeous waitress at her favorite coffee shop reveals she is homeless, Leigh offers her the empty room in her house.
In your head…
Gina is the perfect lodger; Leigh, lonely and frustrated with her life, becomes infatuated with the woman – her boldness, her zeal. If only Leigh could be more like Gina…
And missing without trace.
So when Leigh returns from a work trip she’s shocked to find Gina missing. Where could the young woman have gone…and why?
Leigh fears that something terrible has happened - why else would Gina leave her?
But as she sets out to find her missing lodger, what Leigh discovers changes everything she knows about Gina….and her own life, too.


 I have been reading a lot more crime/thriller books recently and when I saw this book I was drawn in by the front cover. After reading the blurb, I knew that this would be a great read and it reminded me of one of those 4 part series on ITV - the mystrey and psychological element. Defintely adding The Lodger to my books to get list!

When Elodie applies for the job of librarian in peaceful Willow Grove, she’s looking forward to a new start. As the daughter of a media empire, her every move has been watched for years, and she longs to work with the thing she loves most: books.
It’s a chance to make a real difference too, because she soon realises that there are other people in Willow Grove who might need a fresh start – like the homeless man everyone walks past without seeing, or the divorcĂ©e who can’t seem to escape her former husband’s misdeeds.
Together with local journalist Finn, Elodie decides these people have stories that need sharing. What if instead of borrowing books readers could ‘borrow’ a person, and hear the life stories of those they’ve overlooked?
But Elodie isn’t quite sharing her whole story either. As the story of the library’s new success grows, will her own secret be revealed?

When I saw that Rebecca Raisin was releasing a book involving library I knew I had to read it, I don't know what it is about it about reading book which feature books but it just makes it even more enjoyable! I have also been approved for the book on Netgalley so I can't wait to read all about Willow Grove and books.
