Review: Blackberry Picking at Jasmine Cottage by Zara Stoneley

Blackberry Picking at Jasmine Cottage
Return to the charming little village of Langtry Meadows and cosy up by the fire with this gorgeous romance that will warm your heart…

As the lazy days of summer ebb away and the hedgerows fill with rich, plump blackberries, Lucy Jacobs couldn't be happier. She's feeling more and more at home in the small village of Langtry Meadows and has fallen in love with idyllic Jasmine cottage – not to mention gorgeous vet Charlie.

But just as Lucy is thinking about putting down roots like the blackberries that grow in her garden, Charlie's ex returns and threatens to put a thorn in their perfect life…

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

There's no point even denying it, I am a huge fan of Stoneleys work so when I heard she had a new book coming out I literally jumped up and down for joy and had it sent to my kindle faster than you can say "page turner"... It was only as I sat down to read that I realised this was the second book in her Langtry Meadows series, the first book Summer with the Country Village Vet was one of my favourites, so I was doubly excited to be back in Lucy's world groping Charlie the hunky vet

This book sees Lucy heading back to school as the teacher of class 1 and 2 at the little village school, where she has the task of organising the Christmas nativity, and because we're in Langtry Meadows it doesn't just involve organising the children but a whole cast of animals too. Which lets be honest would have anyone reaching for a glass or two of Matt's mulled wine.

In this instalment we find out a few of those burning questions we had at the end of book one... did roly-poly puppy end up living with Lucy? (look away now if you dont want a spoiler) I'm sad to report the answer to this question is a no... but don't fret there were other questions left unanswered that we finally get answers too.

As is usual with Stoneleys work, this book grabs the reader and wraps you up in a big warm hug whilst you settle down to village life, not letting you go until the book is finished. And it leaves you wondering exactly what our characters will get up to in book 3.
