The Cottage of New Beginnings by Suzanne Snow
One crumbling cottage. One broken heart. A chance to start over?
When Annie returns to Thorndale, the village where she spent much of her childhood, she’s looking for a new start. All she wants to do is fix up the cottage her godmother left her, and fix up her broken heart.
When she clashes with local hero, Jon, Annie can’t help but wonder if coming back to Thorndale was a mistake. The village has clearly changed and the last thing she needs is more drama. But avoiding the distractingly handsome Jon is proving impossible, especially when Thorndale seems to be conspiring to throw them together…
Annie is looking for a fresh start with zero romance – but what if the only way to learn to trust again is to take a risk on love?
A new beginning is exactly what Annie gets in this will they/ won't they romance. Having been hurt once before, Annie struggles to trust again and the romance focuses on her fear and Jon's slow and gentle pursuit of her.
The story contains the elements you'd expect for the genre, with the addition of a Christian theme running through it.
A clean, sweet, wholesome, lighthearted story.
