Chasing Dreams at Hedgehog Hollow Jessica Redland 5* #Review @JessicaRedland @BoldwoodBooks #BlogTour @rararesources #romance #Friendship #UpLit #Secrets #FamilyDrama #dreams #Relationships #BookReview #boldwoodbloggers #ChasingDreamsatHedgehogHollow

Samantha has a secret.

Returning home from her dream honeymoon to the normality of running her beloved Hedgehog Hollow rescue centre, she’s ready for the next chapter of her life with Josh. Or is she? Samantha is hiding something which could forever change the dreams they shared and bring their happy ever after crashing to the ground.

Lauren has given up on love. Twenty-six years ago the love of her life, Shaun, left her a note and was never seen again. Two painful divorces later she still can’t face opening up to anyone. But little does Lauren know that the closure she’s dreamt of for all these years may be closer than she thinks, and perhaps the only way to let new love in is to forgive and forget.

Samantha and Lauren will need the love and support from the Hedgehog Hollow family more than ever. After all, some dreams are worth chasing…

I received a copy of this book from the publisher.

My Thoughts…

 I do so enjoy the originality of this series and the effortlessly sensitive way the author explores contemporary issues through her characters. We begin where book four ends at Sam and Josh’s wedding, and the story unfolds through Sam and Lauren’s viewpoints. I like Lauren, and her secrets keep you turning the pages. Sam and Josh’s honeymoon is featured, but it’s their return to their home tugs at the heartstrings.

I love the ups and downs of the familial relationships and the sense of hope this story has. The final chapters are heartwarmingly poignant.
