" The Green Hills Of Home " by Emma Bennet

I received a review copy of this book from the author.......

This is the Debut Novel from Welsh author, Emma Bennet.  At 170 pages, it is a nice short read which is printed on fabulous paper and is beautifully bound.

Gwen is a writer who has just received a book deal from a London Publishing House.  On her way out of the publishing office she literally bumps into a handsome stranger who may change her life.
Set in Wales, where Gwen is trying to save her family home while her mother recovers from a stroke in hospital, this novel is an old fashioned love story.
The characters of Gwen and John reminded me a bit of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy in Pride & Prejudice. Chemistry from the beginning. I did find the first part of the book a little twee, but this settled down .The authors love of animals is obvious with the introduction of Oscar, the fab chocolate lab belonging to Gwen, I wanted to bring him home :)

Sweet, harmless and easy to read, it is perfect for the older reader who prefers her books with no bad language, sexual content  or violence. Perfect Christmas Present for your Aunt or Grandmother who loves Mills & Boon.
