4 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
A romantic hotel in the Lake District. The Cross Hotel is the perfect getaway. Or is it?
Felicity Everdene needs a break from the family business. Driving through the Lake District to the Cross Hotel, past the shining lake and the mountains, everything seems perfect. But Felicity soon discovers all is not well at the Cross Hotel …
Patrick Cross left the village of Emmside years ago never intending to return, but his father has left him the family’s hotel in his will, and now he's forced to come back. With a missing barmaid, a grumpy chef, and the hotel losing money, the arrival of Felicity Everdene from the notorious Everdene family only adds to Patrick’s troubles.
With so much to overcome, can Felicity and Patrick bring happiness to the Cross Hotel … and find happiness for themselves?

MY THOUGHTS -
Another reviewer said "What a lovely, lovely story" - and that's exactly what it is! I honestly couldn't describe it any better. This was a sweet, fun, heartfelt romance with lots of little twists that keep you wanting to read.

I loved the characters - Felicity "Fliss" and Patrick. Helena does a fantastic job of sweeping you away into their world of hotel management. I love it when I read a book about something I have never read before. And I have never read a book about running hotels. I have read books about B&Bs but not a hotel. So it was nice to have something different. This story took me back to the Dragonfly Inn on The Gilmore Girls TV series. And Fliss actually kind of reminded me of Lorelei.

This was a very enjoyable and easy read. Just sit back in the sun, relax and let this little romance consume you! 
PS - adorable cover! I love it!
