The Cottage in Sweet Meadow Park (Book 1) by Liz Davies (BLOG TOUR)


Enjoy a stroll in the park with this uplifting story of love, friendship and following your dreams.

When Molly Brown buys a derelict cottage in the middle of a rundown park, she hopes to return both the cottage and the park to their former glory. However, Molly soon begins to wonder whether she’s bitten off more than she can chew, especially when the good-looking guy from the council refuses to help.

In his role as Parks and Highways Officer, Jack Feathers doesn’t want to waste public funds on an overgrown, unloved park, no matter how gorgeous Molly is. But when he finds himself needing somewhere to live, Molly makes him an offer he can’t refuse – to move into her spare room, rent-free.

The catch? He has to help bring the park back to life.

It seems to be an ideal solution, until… Molly falls for Jack, the park is vandalised, and she realises he is still in love with his ex.

And soon Molly begins to regret letting Jack into her home, her life and her heart.

A delightful romance full of warmth, humour and community spirit, perfect for fans of Jessica Redland and Suzanne Snow.

The Cottage in Sweet Meadow Park is a highly entertaining read with a feel-good factor. It is sweet and funny with even the last line leaving me laughing and wanting to read the next book about the cafe in the park.
Molly is determined to restore the cottage she's just bought and make improvements to Sweet Meadow Park making the public space more appealing and safe for visitors. Jack is in charge of council spending on the park. He wants to help but isn't convinced that it will be money well spent when any improvements will be vandalised anyway. 

Molly and Jack become friends when Molly offers to rent a room to him while his house is being sold. They spend a lot of time together and work well together on their home improvements. Jack has liked Molly from their very first meeting but he is oblivious to her flirting with him and he gives her the wrong impression. I was a little frustrated with Jack that he didn't just tell her the truth about his feelings, his crazy ex-girlfriend and his sister's involvement in the house sale. It would have saved the pair of them a lot of angst. Luckily, interference from an unlikely source sets him straight and a happily ever after swiftly follows.

I loved the sense of community in this book. There were a few eccentric but kind-hearted characters, cute dogs, and naughty teenagers who made good in the end.
It makes a very heartwarming read and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

Author Bio

Liz Davies writes feel-good, light-hearted stories with a hefty dose of romance, a smattering of humour, and a great deal of love.

 She's married to her best friend, has one grown-up daughter, and when she isn't scribbling away in the notepad she carries with her everywhere (just in case inspiration strikes), you'll find her searching for that perfect pair of shoes. She loves to cook but isn't very good at it, and loves to eat - she's much better at that! Liz also enjoys walking (preferably on the flat), cycling (also on the flat), and lots of sitting around in the garden on warm, sunny days.

She currently lives with her family in Wales, but would ideally love to buy a camper van and travel the world in it.
