Back in January you may remember that I reviewed book 1 in this series, (click here to see that review) and this is the second book in the Hallmark Heart's Landing series. As with book 1 the story is basically what you would expect from a Hallmark Movie, in this case a follow-up. This could definitely be read (or watched if it makes it to the small screen) as a stand-alone, although if you have read the first book it feels like returning to a known holiday resort.
As with book 1 my recommendation remains that if you like romance novels (or Hallmark movies), then you should check this out. Where as the first book focuses on the bakery and the catering side of cakes with weddings, this is all about the town, and in particular the history. I have no idea if this is based on an actual place, but this would definitely be a destination I could imagine many brides lining up to add to their preferred places to host their nuptuals.
This gets a solid 5 stars from me. The writing really is excellent, and I felt transported into the story, and I actually prefer this one to book 1, but I don't think the book is necessarily better, I just think that I enjoyed the journalistic and history story, as opposed to the bakery. Either way they would both be great on screen!
A Cottage Wedding releases on June 2nd but it is available for pre-order pretty much anywhere that sells books. I have included the Amazon link, and that is my preferred purchasing option, plus a link to purchase book 1 which is on sale for just $0.99 right now!
