About the Book:
Dearest Nell, if you’re reading this letter, I’m already gone…
You’re my best friend in the world, and as my last request I’m asking you to lay me to rest hundreds of miles away, in my crazy gorgeous, totally one-of-a-kind hometown of Tansy Falls. I know you’re a born-and-bred city girl, but hear me out. After first losing Adrian, and then me… I know your heart is hurting, Nell. I think you’ll find that you need Tansy Falls as much as I do.
So, I’ve got it all planned out. For two weeks, you’ll be staying at the sweet, local inn and every day you’ll be trying something new. And if you follow my instructions to the letter, you may discover there’s more to my story than you think. A surprise something… or someone at the end of it? Only you can find out!
Some last advice before you set off, Nell. Don’t forget your sturdy boots and make sure to give Boomer, the inn’s resident dog, a belly rub from me. Stay well away from former quarterback Brody Knott (boy, do I have some stories about him!). And finally, let the future bring what it brings. While Tansy Falls may look small, I know better than anyone that new beginnings can be found in all kinds of places. That little Vermont town you’d never heard of? Well, it might suddenly begin to feel just like coming home…
If you love feel-good love stories by ReaAnne Thayne, Debbie Macomber and Robyn Carr, you’ll adore this gorgeous, heart-warming novel about starting over.
I requested for an received a copy of the book on NetGalley. A huge thank you to the author and publisher for approving this. The below thoughts are my own.
This is a wonderfully pleasant read with a slight tinge of sadness. What do you do when your best friend of forever is dying and on her deathbed gives you a task. In fact, it is a series of tasks! You follow them right? I mean this is how much you love the person that you would go against all your fears and go to a whole different continent to follow their instructions.
This is the premise of The Inn at Tansy Falls. Nell follows her best friend Megan’s letter to a T. All the rules, information, itinerary. She comes to Tansy Falls, a place her friend used to visit, meets people she once knew and many new ones and experiences a whole different world at this small town. As Nell embarks on this adventure, she forms new bonds and comes to care about people in a way she never did before, embracing a whole new beginning. At the end of this, Nell also just might find love and the kind of relationships with people she has always been looking for.
This is a well-written, sweet story that makes a simple evening all that more enjoyable. I loved reading about Nell, her determination is something that stood out to me. I also loved reading about some of the other women in this book, all of whom are strong characters and huge inspirations. I would definitely recommend this book for fans of Robyn Carr as Tansy Falls has it’s own little charm just like that of Virgin River! Do visit and say hi to the dogs too!
