'Warm, joyful and utterly gorgeous - I loved it!' Celia Anderson

There are worse fates than growing up knowing that you will one day inherit a vast and magnificent Cotswolds country estate, but for Rhys Travers it has always felt like a huge responsibility.

Juniper Meadows is home to much of his extended family, not to mention the many local businesses that operate on the estate, so there’s no time to sit back and enjoy the view. Juniper Meadows is a full-time job, and that doesn’t leave much time for romance…

Tasha Blake’s career leaves no time for romance either – much to her mother’s chagrin. Tasha’s sister Danni has kindly provided two grandchildren, but Victoria Blake is keen for more! When her job takes her to Juniper Meadows for an extended project, the slower pace of life, the beauty of the countryside and the warmth of the Travers family, soon has Tasha in its thrall, and the future Lord of the Manor Rhys Travers is rather easy on the eye too.

As the busyness of life on the estate sweeps Tasha and Rhys along, they are both able to ignore the secrets and silences that are growing between them. But when the future of Juniper Meadows hangs in the balance, loyalties and love are tested to breaking point. When the chips are down, can Rhys and Tasha see a future together, come rain or shine…

Sarah Bennett is back with her signature blend of warmth and joy, plot and pace. A Sarah Bennett book is a ray of sunshine and a huge hug, guaranteed to brighten any day, perfect for all fans of Cathy Bramley, Katie Fforde and Phillipa Ashley.

Praise for the Juniper Meadows series:

'Juniper Meadows is one of my favourite places to visit and revisit. Life there continues to be complex and enthralling. The sparkling cast of characters and stunning setting make this a fast-paced, deeply romantic adventure for Tasha, as she braves the fascinating minefield of family dynamics and relationships. Warm, joyful and utterly gorgeous - I loved it! Celia Anderson

'A perfect read to cosy up with at this time of year. Complex family relationships are explored with love and sensitivity and in a way that keeps you turning the pages. Full of friends and family and the meaning of love in all its different forms' Katie Ginger

‘I inhaled this book in two days. Absolutely gorgeous. Sarah Bennett is back, and better than ever!’ Rachel Burton

'A perfect heartwarming read full of family, romance and intrigue, set in a stunning location - what’s not to love?' Bella Osborne

'In From The Cold' is a cleverly woven tale of family in all its many meanings; emotional, heart-breaking but ultimately uplifting, I can’t wait to see where Sarah Bennett takes us next.' Alexandra Walsh

'In From the Cold is a joyful, intriguing story of intertwining relationships whose ripples spread throughout a community... Moving, witty and atmospheric, the story bowls along at a cracking pace, delivering a generous supply of romance along with the gin. I loved it! More, please.' Celia Anderson

Readers love Sarah Bennett:

‘Absolutely loved this book from start to finish the storyline covered everything I didn't want it to finish, I do hope there is going to be a third instalment’

‘I think this could well be some of Sarah Bennett’s best writing to date. She has a captivating way with words, and also gets some lovely humour in there too. What Sarah Bennett excels at, is creating settings. From her previous books, Lavender Bay and Mermaids Point, are both settings that have stuck in my heart. Juniper Meadows has now joined them. It’s just so damn lovely, and quite honestly, I want to go there and never leave!’

Another lovely read by Sarah Bennett. I really enjoyed this book. It had an interesting story line. Great characters and good interaction between them. Recommend either for a summer read or to wash away the winter blues.

I loved returning to Juniper Meadows. I loved Rhys in this story, he's such a great character. I love the idea of Juniper Meadows but it does sounds like such massive upkeep.

Tasha mother is unbearable, it is so nice to read a book about someone who isn't thinking about kids, I think if my mum said what Tasha's says to her, whether she's offered to pay for it or not, I'd be fuming. I like that Tasha doesn't take the crap from her mum and that he dad isn't like that with her.

The connections are really good and I loved reading above the developing of some relationships. I really enjoyed the ending and what the outcome of certain situations was.

The pace of this book is perfect and I loved coming back to Juniper Meadows.

Sarah Bennett's new book is her best one to date and the third in her awesome Juniper Meadows series.

Natasha Blake I like her at first but boy is she gullible. She is basically the lackey for her horrible boss who puts her in a position to learn everything she can about Juniper Meadows. A boss with an enormous vendetta against the family.

What she doesn't see if falling in love with Rhys and lying to him for months. I wanted to dislike her for everything she was doing but I couldn't. I wanted her and Rhys to have their happy ever after.

I'm not going to spoil it but I couldn't put this book down. From beginning to end it's unputdownable and I can't wait for the final book in the series. I don't know where or who that could be with but I know it be every good as the first three.

This was such a joy to read, and I really loved the setting as well being able to exist in England for a bit every day while I read this. I did not read any of the other books in this series, but nonetheless was able to enjoy this book and its sweet romance and characters. The two main characters come together due to life circumstances and fall into each other's orbit. I also really enjoyed the secondary characters within the family. Now I should probably read the other books so I can continue all the good feels.

Thank you to NetGalley and Boldwood Books for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I just loved this book so much that I only put it down to get a bit of sleep. I started this book in the early hours of this morning when I went to bed and got to chapter 18 and then I had a couple of hours sleep, I have now continued to read on and have finished this book today.

I just loved all of the characters in this book and the story features Tasha and Rhys who are just beautiful and they both deserve a happily ever after.

This is such a beautiful book and I would happily recommend this to everyone. Thank you so much to NetGalley and Boldwood for giving me this opportunity to review this book early!

Another sparkling addition to this very readable series!

Juniper Meadows is very much a family concern, but Rhys Travers is aware that, one day, the overall responsibility will fall to him. Securing the future takes up all of his time, with nothing left over for a personal life. Tasha Blake is in similar circumstances; she is very career minded and her boss has no concept of personal time. His latest instructions send her to Juniper Meadows to interview for a position in order to spy on the set-up there ... what is going on?

This is a truly enjoyable series by Sarah Bennett. Whilst it is a series, each book focuses on a different family member and each one is just delightful! A novel with great characters and so much going on that it's a hard one to put down. This third book is every bit as enjoyable as the preceding two, and I hope this is a series which continues for several more books yet! Easily earning all 5* and my recommendation.

My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is - as always - my honest, original and unbiased review.
