But necessity is the mother of invention and Lauren has a new plan. She’s going to spruce up the inn, turn the attached pub into a hot spot, sell it for a killing, and start her own ...more

This has been a very pleasant book, being an Anglo-American romance with the cultural differences that entails. Although it has not been treated in a derogatory way or from a negative point of view, neither in the case of the New York woman, Lauren, nor in the case of the woman of a small town in England, Cam. The differences between the two women are more because of their own personality, although it could be considered that the environment in which they live also marks this different ...more
This is a lovely romance and perfect escapism reading. Two things happen for Lauren in quick succession. She loses her job and is unceremoniously frog-marched out of the building, and she discovers she's inherited an inn in England from a great uncle. With nothing to hold her back, she flies from New York to England to suss out her inheritance. Cam lives in Netherfield and runs the family gin distillery (the gin education was enough reason for me to read this). Lauren's presence and big-city ...more
When MC Lauren’s perfect NYC life is turned upside-down by an unfair firing, she chooses to try and rebuild over in England, at the inn and tavern that her late uncle left her. The place is a bit run down and not very busy, but Lauren’s a marketing guru and she knows she can turn it around. Plus, what better way to get back into the swing of things and promote the new marketing agency she’s planning open than to start off with a business she already owns?

So this is a very classic and fluffy romance. This is the typical book that you want to read on a lazy sunday where you need entertainment and something not so complicated! I think the right word for this book is "SMOOTH".
Both MCs are likable, even though one of them is less so than the other (i liked Cam a bit more than Lauren). I liked the fact that they were enemies at first then switched to lovers, and i thought the author nailed this part because i could feel the chemistry between them! The

Upon discovering lesfic, I’ve come to realize that I really enjoy cozy, small town/village romances, especially if one of the main characters is an outsider coming in from a big city. I hesitated before requesting The Inn at Netherfield Green because I hadn’t read anything by Aurora Rey before and my ARC pile was growing at an alarming rate, but I’m glad I did because I really enjoyed this book!

Not the most exciting novel I’ve read lately but still a pretty cosy read. If you’re looking for something mellow and easy for the weekend, this would be a good choice.

Lauren Montgomery is a New York advertising executive, whose life gets turned upside down in a couple of days when she loses her job (for unfair reasons) and inherits an inn and pub in a small English town. Needing a break from her life, she decides to move to England and see how to make the best of a crappy situation.

Lauren is in a bit of a bind. The bad news? She’s just been fired from her fancy as exc job in NYC for BS reasons. The good news? She’s just inherited a pub/inn in Merry Ole England. The bad news? It needs a lot of work if it’s going to make any money. The good news? She can trade services with a gorgeous gin distiller, marketing for Cam’s newest gin for work on the inn. The bad news? Cam hates the idea of anything modern and trendy and makes her feelings quite clear. The good

A few timely things made parts of this story extremely enjoyable for me. One, I was just in northern England a few weeks ago and was instantly drawn to the rolling deep green hills, ancient low stone walls surrounding properties, single track roads and fields of sheep. I had no trouble visualizing the setting of the Rose and Crown/Inn in Netherfield Green, which made this reading experience so vivid. Two, I love GIN and therefore will capitalize this throughout this review.

Aurora Rey has created another exquisite contemporary romance called The Inn at Netherfield Green. I knew I wanted to read this one as soon as I saw who the author was. The cover also caught my attention. Beautiful, eye catching covers really do mean more people notice and maybe buy the book. This one definitely worked for me.

This story starts with a bang since it begins with the main character, Lauren Montgomery, being unjustly fired from her job as an advertising executive. The very same day

ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is my second book by Rey and it’s a nice sweet love story. This features MC Lauren, recently fired from her marketing job for something she didn’t do and who also happens to have just inherited an inn/bar in England. She jumps on a plane with the intention to flip the inn and use the funds to start her own marketing firm. The other MC is Cam, who runs a nearby family owned gin distillery and is a regular at the inn and doesn’t

I'm usually very happy to have the chance to read an Aurora Rey novel - she constantly delivers a well-written romance that has just the right blend of humour, engaging characters, chemistry and romance. I'm glad to say, the streak continues - The Inn at Netherfield Green is a fun romance.

Hit with a double-whammy of being unjustly fired from a high profile advertising agency and finding out that she's inherited an Inn and Pub from a distant relative in England, Lauren is at a crossroads.

Lauren Montgomery, a New York advertising executive, inherits an inn in England at just the right time. Needing to get away from a bad situation at home she jumps at the chance to go there. Initially she sees an opportunity to do it up and flip it. Camden Crawley is a local in Netherfield and a Gin distiller. She likes the pub the way it is and is not at all happy that this interloper could change it, and with it the character of the village. Will Lauren even listen to her views?

This may be my favourite book by Aurora Rey. All of my teenage romantic notions of small town life in the English countryside were fulfilled in this book.

Lauren finds out she'd inherited an Inn and a pub (in England) just hours after she's been (wrongly) fired from her job at an advertising firm in New York City. As she plots her revenge, she heads off to England to do what she can to fix up her new property and then sell it, launching her own firm and taking down the person who got her fired.

This was a nice and easy romance read that didn't have a complicated conflict, and some pretty steamy sex scenes. The chemistry between American Lauren Montgomery and Camden Crowley is palpable the moment they met. I loved their first meeting, it wasn't a cute meet, but Lauren's temporary short circuit was adorable. I also found that Cam's adverse to change is played all the way throughout her interactions with Lauren. She seems to instinctively know that Lauren is different, and that freaks her ...more

Aurora Rey audiobooks are the audiobook equivalent of putting on a warm sweater and finally sipping a hot tea on a chilly rainy day. I most often listen to audiobooks while I'm walking Max, and now that there's (already!) snow on the ground, they're one of the ways I make it through winter—so I generally try to make the books last by only listening while I walk him. The Inn at Netherfield Green made me break my usual pattern, and I listened to it throughout the day, indoors and out, over the ...more

I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review from Bold Strokes Books and NetGalley.

This book was an absolute disaster, and I mean that explicitly. I realized about 50% of the way through that I hated the premise of the book, but I was halfway through and thought it would get better. The basic premise of the book is Lauren gets fired from her job, which is actually a pretty interesting way to start the book. As we continue the book we learn that Lauren inherits an inn and needs

I am always a fan of books that take place overseas, especially in small towns in the UK. This book was no exception. It’s a nice, slow read to enjoy in bed after a long day working out in the cold. The dynamic between the two main characters, Cam and Lauren, as they strive to reach a compromise and restoring and reviving parts of their small English village they call home, was enjoyable, much like the various drinks they discussed that Cam would make for them. As an American who loves history, ...more

Here’s where this book lost me: our heroine decides to order a slice of lamb pie for her first pub dinner in Britain and the book felt the need to overexplain why she was allowed to eat pie. You see, she hadn’t eaten all day. She usually wouldn’t order anything this heavy. She was required to sample the menu as part of her new role as a pub owner. The pie wasn’t that tasty anyway. And she immediately thought afterwards that it wasn’t the sort of thing she’d ever want to eat outside of winter, ...more

Ms Rey has given us another sweet romance involving two women who seem to be miles apart when it comes to dealing with all of life's trials and tribulations. Or are they really that different?
Lauren Montgomery lived and worked in NewYork as an advertising executive where she was sure her career had only one direction, up, working in a business she loved. Problem was not everyone was a fan including a co-worker who went out of his way derailing Lauren’s career. It was surprising just how fast

Charming romance set in rural England with two strong leads. I enjoyed the enemies-to-lovers and the fish-out-of water tropes, plus the remodeling of the inn and pub. Not to mention that I felt the urge to buy some gin the night I started reading this! As is typical in an Aurora Rey book, the chemistry was off the charts and the love scenes were nicely varied. This is a solid, well-written romance not to be missed.

I really enjoyed this book but that’s not surprising because it came from the pen of Aurora Rey. This is the kind of book you read while sitting by a warm fire with a Rosemary Gin and snuggly blanket.

A fantastic read that you will not want to put down (and I didn’t until 5am).
