A Gift from the Cottage by the Loch
Turning to face the glittering loch, Bel clasps the worn notepaper tightly in her hand. Will these hastily scrawled words, written decades ago, destroy the new life in the Highlands she’s risked her heart for?
When Bel Burns catches her husband cheating on her, the devastating betrayal sends her running to her sister Sally in the beautiful village of Loch Cameron. Bel needs Sally’s warm laugh and sage advice now more than ever, and she knows curling up with her on the sofa and gossiping late into the night will make her feel whole again.
Bel did not expect her rented cottage overlooking the loch to come with handsome gardener, Christian McDougal, and she’s determined to be unmoved by his flirty smile and broad shoulders. The last thing she needs is another man she can’t trust. Then when Bel sees an empty storefront on the high street for rent, it’s Christian who notices how her eyes light up. He encourages her to set up a business in the village and she realises he’s everything her ex was not.
But soon Bel hears a rumour in town that Christian is not all he seems. And clearing out her store, she finds a collection of letters tied with a worn blue ribbon stashed on a high shelf in the back room. The letters reveal a devastating secret that shook the village generations ago, and Christian’s family are at the heart of it…
Will trusting Christian with her already fragile heart mean Bel loses everything once again? Or is Christian and the village of Loch Cameron the gift she needs to turn her life around?
Fans of Susanne O’Leary, Debbie Macomber and Pamela Kelley will be utterly swept away by this gripping page-turner about family secrets from USA Today bestseller Kennedy Kerr.
