The Forever House by Veronica Henry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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 have read a few books by Veronica Henry and I have enjoyed all of them, when I discovered she had released a new novel 'The Forever House' I couldn't wait to get stuck into it. I had a real personal connection with this book, as I am currently in the process of buying my own forever house.
Belinda is an estate agent and she has high value houses on her books, when she hears about a potential dream home coming onto the market she wants to make sure it is her that can secure it for their books. They decide to have an 'open house' and then put forward the highest offer to try and keep the house out of the public eye for too long and to not have too much disruption.
The book jumps between the 1960's where we find out how Sally and Alexander met, who owned the house and the present day. As we go through the book, you discover that there are many secrets that have come out of Hunters Moon.
I loved the setting of this book and the characters had a lot of depth to them. I really enjoyed this, for me it was a lovely spring book set in the countryside.
I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
