Always and Forever at Glendale Hall by Victoria Walters


It is time to make another wonderful trip to Glendale Hall in Victoria Walters new release 

Always and Forever at Glendale Hall

Today is my stop on the blog tour and I will be sharing my thoughts with you on this book where we catch up with much loved characters as well as meeting new vibrant characters who bring a breath of fresh air to the Hall.

Anna Stewart is lost. After barely surviving a car accident as a teenager, Anna is scared of settling. Flitting between jobs, boyfriends and homes whenever she gets bored, she has no idea what the future holds. Then her brother Brodie, minister of Glendale, suggests she moves to the beautiful Scottish village, lining up a housekeeper job for her at Glendale Hall.

Out of options, Anna agrees to take the job just for the summer. Once at the hall, her culinary skills impress everyone, and she agrees to give Hilltop Farm’s new manager, Cameron, cooking lessons. Sparks fly between Anna and the handsome Scot, but Cameron keeps pushing Anna away, and Anna definitely isn't looking for love. But it's wedding season at Glendale Hall, and Anna is about to discover that her new home has a way of working its magic on even the coldest of hearts.

Will she really be able to just walk away at the end of summer, or could Anna have finally found a place to belong?

It’s summertime so pack your bags and escape to beautiful Highlands village of Glendale with this gorgeously uplifting, romantic read. Fans of Milly Johnson, Heidi Swain and Holly Martin will love this charming romance.

Victoria Walters takes us back to the idyllic village of Glendale in book 4 of the series Always and Forever where we are reunited with our beloved characters from the previous books as well as meeting our new character Anna who is Bodie the Ministers sister.

It is true to say that Anna is unlike the rest of the clan that we know and love from our Glendale community, she is a whirlwind that can not settle in one place she has a defiance and strong independence but she is also haunted by her past which has shaped her life as she knows it.

Brodie longs to see his sister plant roots and he loves having his little sister home but can the close knit group of friends sprinkle their magic and make Anna want to stay and blossom at Glendale or maybe there may be a helping hand with the handsome single farmer Cameron!

As much as I love Anna bringing a new face to the village and a fresh modern storyline to shake it up I actually found myself more eager to see how our original friends are doing with their businesses, relationships and families as they have really captured my heart. At times I found Anna quite infuriating but I could also sympathise with her in the way a tragic event in her life had led her to not feel that she is worth the good things in life and to feel that that is how other people see her too. Her passion for cooking was a great part to the storyline it was clear early on that she had an incredible flair for cooking and I do hope that if we touch on her character in a 5th book in the series that she has followed her dreams.

I know Victoria Walters has announced a new crime series she is publishing but there is still a part of me that wouldn’t be surprised if she was to squeeze one more Glendale book out as a final wrap up for all of our couples I know I would love to see one final instalment and I don’t think I am alone in this.
