4 stars
This was a very sweet, heart-warming story that took place in the cozy little town of Woodford, England. While this is the fourth book in the series, this book can be read as a stand-alone!
I really enjoyed getting to know the characters! They were delightful and well developed! The writing and pacing kept the story moving well up until a well satisfactory ending. Overall, I would recommend this book for those looking for a great small town chick-lit romance. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series!

I really enjoy these little Woodford books they are fun and easy to read. It's always really nice to read them as you get to catch up with all your favourite characters and find out what they are all up to. This is book four in the series and I would recommend reading them in order.

Another delightful story set in the cosy little town of Woodford, where everyone knows everyone else and nothing stays secret for long.

The storylines in this book centre around the sale of the sale of the local mansion, a mysterious stranger to the village, and the embezzlement of money from a local charity fete.

This book is the 4th set in the town, but I think it could be read as a standalone..

Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my review.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for an early review copy. 

There’s stuff happening in the village, a for sale sign has gone up for the Little Reeve house for four million pounds. Along with that, it seems the pubs owner is looking to sell. Whose bought the house, nobody has a clue, but if appears that Lawrence wants to be a part of this community, but he doesn’t want anyone to know his identity. 

The ladies organising the fete have a problem, the fiend where it’s held previously, now can’t be used as the council have advised. So Lawrence, let’s them use the house to hold this event, which pleases all the ladies. 

There was quite a lot going on in this story, but I enjoyed reading it nonetheless.

Summer Begins..
The fourth in the Little Woodford series and, as Summer begins, preparations are underway for the local fete, properties are up for sale and a newcomer arrives. As ever, beneath the sleepy exterior of Little Woodford lies a hotbed of gossip, secrets and a little scandal. Enjoyable, gentle escapism.

Little Woodford holds an annual summer fete but nothing is going as it should. They need committee members to help which is just the start of their problems. What a great book! Loved the characters & the story where good things do happen. A lovely easy, enjoyable read that I recommended. Enjoy!

Thanks Netgalley for allowing me to read this book. Thus book talks about  life in a small town and the excitement people feel when new families arrive. A woman arrives but is not who she seems. I liked the different characters  and this book was a quick read.

The story 
Things are happening in the village of Little Woodford. The large Reeve house is for sale for 4 million pounds and the owners for the Talbot local pub are also selling. No one knows the current owners of the Reeve house, but it seems like the new owner Lawrence McLaughlin is keen to be part of the local community, so long as no one knows his true musician identity. The ladies of the fete committee are in a spot. The Parsley field land where the fete is normally held is being converted to council land and can’t be used for the fete. But when Lawrence offers Reeve house, this proves a lifeline for the fete organisers. 

My thoughts 
This sweet story about the gossipy small village life is filled with stories of Little Woodford’s residents. In addition to newcomer Lawrence, there is Belinda the pub owner. Miles the chef and his wife Bex, the fete organisers Heather and Maxine. My favourite character is the hardworking and serious Ashley, son of cleaner Amy. There was a lot going on in this story but a cutie nonetheless.

A charming book about village life, quite true to life and enjoyable. Two properties are for sale which will bring new life or trouble.
