Two weddings and a baby…but who will get their happy ever after?

Emily Prescott’s life isn’t going to plan. Her dreams of starting a family with fireman boyfriend Greg and opening up her own bakery in London feel like they will never come true. So when a wedding
invite arrives from her oldest friend, Beth Williams, Emily is thrilled. Not only will she get to return to her childhood home in Scotland, but best of all – Beth wants her to bake the wedding cake!

However, her excitement is cut short when she discovers that Greg has cheated on her. Devastated by his betrayal, Emily flees to Glendale Hall, Beth’s grand estate in the Highlands, and tries to distracts herself with helping with the wedding plans, but that’s not easy when Greg keeps hounding her to forgive him. Then she’s introduced to Glendale’s new young and handsome vicar Brodie, and things become even more complicated.

When Emily discovers that Greg’s betrayal runs deeper than she imagined, she finds herself with a whole host of decisions to make, especially when she discovers her long awaited dream is finally being fulfilled – at exactly at the wrong time…

Escape to Scotland and fall in love with this gorgeous and inspiring romance from the bestselling author of Coming Home to Glendale Hall! The perfect feel-good read for fans of Holly Martin, Heidi Swain, and Jill Mansell.


Welcome to my spot on the New Beginnings at Glendale Hall Blog Tour.  It’s a pleasure to read such a charming story about a woman faced with so many important decisions in her life and tackling them with eloquence, grace, and the love of family, and friends.

Emily’s life is a mess. She finds out her boyfriend, Greg, cheats on her with her co-worker right before she heads off to her best friend, Beth’s wedding in Glendale, Scotland. While there, she realizes there are more changes in store and an unexpected attraction to local minister, Reverend Brodie Stewart which comes at an inopportune time.

This is definitely a cozy, feel-good story, about following your dreams with the support and love of family and friends. The Glendale community is endearing and a place where I would love to live.  Emily is so very strong and brave to change her life and follow her dreams.  I especially enjoyed Brodie’s valued advice and unwavering support as well as his quirky humor.

If you enjoy cozy romances with inviting locations and well-developed characters, I recommend this charming book.

Thank you to Ms. Walters for giving me the opportunity to review this book with no expectation of a positive review.
