Brand NEW from the bestselling author of The Village Shop For Lonely Hearts.

After escaping her parents’ unhappy marriage to sleepy Cranbridge a long time ago, Belle Clarke dreams of staying at The Black Swan Inn forever.

But with the rundown Inn threatened with closure, Belle may be forced to leave, unless a buyer can be found … quickly.

So, when her oldest friend Pete Kennedy returns from working abroad with a plan to save the Inn, Belle should be overjoyed. The trouble is, Pete has some rather radical ideas for the renovation which Belle disagrees with.

But when a snow storm hits, Belle and Pete are forced to put aside their differences and work together to help the village.

Can Belle realize her dreams to stay in Cranbridge and can Pete ever stop running from his past?

As they try to save The Black Swan Inn, secrets are revealed and just maybe they’ll finally find out how they really feel about each other.

My Review – It is no secret that I will not hesitate to pick up a small-town romance. Of all the niche genres, that is my absolute favorite. The Village Inn of Secret Dreams did not disappoint. Lifelong friends Belle and Pete shared a grief-stricken kiss 3 years ago, just before he left the country and went radio silent on her. And now he’s back–and he has saved her home, The Black Swan Inn. They disagree about everything, from the food to the décor, and they deny their growing attraction to each other. I enjoyed this cozy novel which takes place in the fall and winter. I loved the descriptions of the Inn (especially the fireplaces!) and now I want to move to Cranbridge. 3.5 snowflakes, rounded to 4 ❄️❄️❄️❄️
