The Forever House
Hunter's Moon is the ultimate 'forever' house. Nestled by a river in the Peasebrook valley, it has been the Willoughbys' home for over fifty years, and now estate agent Belinda Baxter is determined to find the perfect family to live there. But the sale of the house unlocks decades of family secrets - and brings Belinda face to face with her own troubled past. . .
I adored this one right from the get-go. It is a chick-lit romance, but not overwhelmingly so. It’s about a family living in a home called “Hunter’s Moon” set in my favorite part of England, the beautiful Cotswolds.
I imagined the home to look something like this.
Although it’s all a bit predictable, it was a truly heart-warming read. I already miss some of the wonderful ...more
"The Forever House" is my third book by Veronica Henry and when I thought that there is nothing that could overdo her "How to Find Love in a Bookshop", I can certainly state that this newest release is as good as the latter. I've no idea how Veronica Henry does it, but there is such warmth to the writing, it is so inviting that you immediately feel at home when reading her novels. She brings all the emotions and feelings of the characters so effortlessly to life and I very quickly found myself ...more
As soon as I saw that Veronica Henry had a new book coming out, I just knew that I had to get my hands on a copy! I'm not going to lie, I was overcome by incredible disappointment when I saw that the book was due to be released in May this year. Now, as I'm sure you're all aware when you're a massive bookworm, patience for upcoming books is pretty much non-existent (especially if they're one of your favourite authors)! ...more

And that is exactly what is happening with Hunter's Moon, a gorgeous property in Peasebrook. Sally and Alexander need to downsize and sell up, for a very good reason, but they have been very happy in the property for over 50 years.
As we watch them explain to family why ...more

I loved how the book followed the family through the years. It was also lovely that past characters from Finding love in a bookshop made a small appearance.
Loved this book! I was immediately drawn into the story, it flowed naturally and past & present were stitched together very cleverly. I liked the range of characters and the unfolding of events felt natural rather than contrived. The perfect summer read!
