Willow Tree Hall has seen much better days and has been the proud ancestral home of the Earl and Countess of Cranley for centuries. With no qualifications and escaping her past Annie Rogers takes the job as housekeeper to widowed Arthur, the charming current Earl of Cranley. After a bad fall puts Arthur in hospital, it’s up to a reluctant heir apparent Sam Harris, to lend a helping hand and try to find a sustainable future for the Estate.

With Sam running from his past and Annie hiding from hers, just maybe together they can bring Willow Tree Hall back to life. The start of a beautiful new series focusing on the lives and loves, trial and tribulations of all those who live and work at Willow Tree Hall.
Annie is the housekeeper to Arthur. When he has an accident the only living relatives comes by. With a negative history we are introduced to Sam and Will. I seem to like positive fluffy novels the most. This one is written well, I just found my last read really easy to get into. Willow Tree Hall is an estate that is to be left to Sam to maintain as their parents passed away very young and they are the only relatives that can maintain it as their elders cannot. After around 50 pages in (eBook reading) I began to get bored as you can sum up a lot of the pages as nothing really changes. It’s a very slow progression with not much happening, I’ve found from the beginning that it could have been written at a gripping pace to properly entice the reader in.
Therefore 2/5 stars
