    I have been eagerly anticipating the release of Appleby Farm and was so excited that I was primed and ready to download on the stroke of midnight My plan to read the first couple of chapters before sleep were scuppered when I looked up just over an hour later to realise I had read almost all of it..of course then I had to finish it before settling down for the night.The main character is Freya, and I love her already Freya has struggled to settle down to anything long term, and for the last I have been eagerly anticipating the release of Appleby Farm and was so excited that I was primed and ready to download on the stroke of midnight My plan to read the first couple of chapters before sleep were scuppered when I looked up just over an hour later to realise I had read almost all of it..of course then I had to finish it before settling down for the night.The main character is Freya, and I love her already Freya has struggled to settle down to anything long term, and for the last few months has been living in Kingsfield and working in the local cafe She stumbled upon the job as a help to her friend Anna, whose Mum had broken her ankle and was struggling to run the business And that introduction is prime example of who Freya is A loveable, naturally caring person who as a reader I very quickly became attached to If you, like me, have read and loved the Ivy Lane series you will be excited to see some familiar faces pop up One of the first people we are reunited with is Charlie who has been dating Freya for a couple of months We even get to go back to Ivy Lane and the allotments Freya is questioning what to do next in life, and pondering what happens next with Charlie He has a son but seems reluctant to bring them all together Bang on cue Freya gets a call from her Auntie Sue who is phoning to say that Freya s Uncle Arthur had been in an accident Freya drops everything and heads off to Appleby Farm to visit them.This is where I totally fell in love with the story Appleby Farm sounds like a fantastic place to live I love country life and found it very easy to visualise what a great place this was, and feel at home Freya quickly realises that her Aunt and Uncle needlonger term help, and sets about finding outabout what help is needed and enlisting people to get stuck in We also meetof the local community including Lizzie who is working at the local pub, Eddy who works on the farm, and Rory who is living locally and looking for some practical farm experience They are lovely and I want to get to know them better or just move there myself.If I was Freya I know I would struggle to leave Appleby Farm, but then Freya does have the lovely Charlie to consider too But where will she end up Ooh I want to tell youbut I don t want to ruin it for you..I am in love with this series already It is just as good as Ivy Lane and I cannot wait to devour the rest of the series and see what happens I love Cathy s writing style It is so warm, inviting, fun and loving and her books always fill me with warmth and put a smile on my face, just like meeting up with old friends and finding out what is happening with them I could read her work all the time I loved seeing characters from the Ivy Lane series appearing and catching up with them But if you haven t read that then don t worry, this works perfectly as a stand alone Roll on March so I can download part 2 and get back to Freya and Appleby Farm

    I am loving Cathy Bramley s knack of making me want to be somewhere in the English countryside sipping tea and being wooed by a tall male with an accent This Australian has been swept up by the romance of a life in a quaint township or even on a farm.

    Originally posted on I cannot tell you, readers, how bloody lovely it felt to be back within one of the wonderful Cathy Bramley s gorgeous stories Since reading the complete Ivy Lane story, I ve been head over heels in love with Cathy s effortlessly snug and charming writing style, and so, I could not wait to dip my toes into her brand new Appleby Farm series and wriggle them about In part 1 of the Appleby Farm series, aptly titled A Blessing in Disgu Originally posted on I cannot tell you, readers, how bloody lovely it felt to be back within one of the wonderful Cathy Bramley s gorgeous stories Since reading the complete Ivy Lane story, I ve been head over heels in love with Cathy s effortlessly snug and charming writing style, and so, I could not wait to dip my toes into her brand new Appleby Farm series and wriggle them about In part 1 of the Appleby Farm series, aptly titled A Blessing in Disguise, Cathy introduces us to her flame haired, charismatic heroine Freya Moorcroft The story opens with a comical scene that s taking place in Kingsfield, in Shenton Road Cafe, just around the corner from the lovely Ivy Lane allotments Feeling so close to Cathy s previous series made me feel, once , at home within her writing, and it was even better when previous characters cropped up here and there and took me right back to where the magic all began As the story presses onwards, Freya s first person narrative begins to reveal her story to the readers, and we re told all about how she managed to end up working there, but also where she d been beforehand It turned out that Freya, despite seeming to fit right into the setting perfectly, was well travelled and had actually tried her hand at all manner of jobs, everything from being an apple picker in New Zealand to being a chalet girl in Austria Reading about Freya s past, which seemed so very real to me, really added a ton of believability to her character It also emphasised the fact that, even though Freya had travelled all over the place and worked many jobs, there was still only one place that truly held her heart Appleby Farm, home to her Uncle Arthur and Auntie Sue Cathy gathers a handful of twists and throws them into the plot just as we re getting to grips with Freya s surroundings and circumstances, and I LOVED IT Before we know it, due to a terrible accident involving her Uncle Arthur, Freya is heading back to Lovedale, back to Appleby Farm, back to lend a helping hand to her loved ones when they most need it During the Freya s journey back to Appleby Farm, I was so very excited to finally arrive at the place that Freya absolutely adored and held so close to her heart Cathy s gorgeous, warm descriptions brought the farm to life for me before we d even arrived Not only was the farm described picture perfect, but Lovedale itself was incredibly inviting and weirdly, felt familiar, probably that old Cathy Bramley charm It was as if the author had some sort of magic wand, and with just a tap from that, everything in the scenery was drenched with Cathy s clever wording and unique appeal Once Freya was back at Appleby Farm, Cathy brought in and introduced a bunch of new characters to my delight, including chickens and horses and two adorable cats As the story progresses, Cathy brings up the problems that have led Freya back to where she s called home for years, and the story then takes on a life of it s own as Freya attempts to help out in the best way that she can As mentioned above, there is just something effortlessly comforting about Cathy s writing and characters Her settings are incredibly warm and welcoming, and within just moments of beginning, I felt cocooned and wrapped up in her magical world The story held me captive right the way through, and I read it completely in about three hours I couldn t wait to see how Freya would help out, I loved the little quirks that her Auntie and Uncle had like a real family, and I think I, as much as Freya, felt almost joyful at the fact that I was there If ever there was a way to begin a brand new series, then Cathy Bramley cracked it with this one A Blessing in Disguise has that glittery Bramley spark, for sure, and already, I cannot wait for Part 2, which I just know will fantastic I cannot fault a single thing about Cathy s writing It sparkles, it invites, it welcomes you and squeezes ever so tightly In fact, you feel so wanted and needed within Cathy Bramley s stories, it s very hard to turn the final pages, because you honestly just wantBecca s Books is rating A Blessing in Disguise by Cathy Bramley with FIVE OF MY GORGEOUS CUPCAKES Roll on Part 2, wahooooo

    A good startIt s a light read I had just finished a novel about life after the War, and whilst it was a good read, it was a bit depressing and this book has lightened my mood and promises to be a good tale.
