Amelia Grey's Fireside Dream by Abby Clements

Amelia has a dream: toasting chestnuts by the fire with her husband Jack in their own cosy cottage. Their real life is another world – a cramped one-bedroom flat in Hackney. But when life takes a surprising turn, removal vans are soon heading to the Kent countryside.
They soon realise the cottage makeover is a far bigger project than they’d anticipated. On top of that, there’s Amelia’s newly loved-up mum and her tearaway half-sister, Mirabel, to contend with – pushing Amelia and Jack’s marriage to breaking point.
Amelia begins to strip back the wallpaper and fittings in the cottage and discovers the story of the cottage’s previous owner – and a hidden secret. As Amelia’s ideas about love and family change, will her fireside dream finally come true?

I think the author knows best when it comes to describing what her book is about, so I've copied the above from Abby Clements website. This is the third book by Abby Clements. I've read all three as I like her books a lot! They're perfect for creating a relaxing afternoon on the couch drinking a hot chocolate or a cup of tea with of course lots of cookies on the side. Also it's not always necessary to let the main character fall in love with someone new and start a relationship to make a book romantic. The main character in this book moves into a cottage not long after celebrating her 30th birthday. Even though it's a lot of work and there are quite many bumps in the road I immediately wanted to move into a cottage of my own after reading this book. The talk about the renovations was just enough and country life seemed very interesting. It's a definitely a great winter read. Or a book to take on holiday with you to read by the pool when you're escaping the cold in a warmer country.
