Abigail and Edward are co-owners of Winfield Hall and are renting out apartments with varying degrees of success. Romance flutters in the air but secrets lurk in the shadows…
The Colour of Summer is the third and final book in Victoria Connelly’s series and I have reviewed the first book in the series The House in the Clouds.
Abi and Edward were thrown together by their ownership of the house. Their friendship teeters on romance with neither willing to make the first move. Harry and Aura are the other couple to feature in this book. Their relationship is ready to move to the next stage and a wedding is planned. This makes Abi and Edward consider their own relationship.
Things do not run smoothly for the couple even though I was eager to finally get them together. The pair are having trouble with one of their tenants and this really struck a chord with me as we have noisy neighbours. They also have secrets from the past and I wrote in my review of the first book that they were both haunted and vulnerable.
The tone of the book is gentle and the author treats her characters with warmth. I enjoyed the descriptons of the setting which supported the plot and characters.
The Colour of Summer is a warm and enjoyable romance novel.
The Colour of Summer
How long can you hide your past from the one you love?
When Abigail and Edward became co-owners of historic Winfield Hall in the beautiful Sussex countryside, they had little idea what the future held. But, as the days of summer lengthen, their feelings towards one another grow and love begins to blossom.
Harry and Aura have been a couple for a year now and, with the summer solstice approaching, Harry hatches a very special plan. He just hopes that the sun, moon and the stars are all in alignment.
But not everything is going to plan. Life has a way of catching up with you and it isn’t long before Abi discovers that Edward’s been lying about his past, and the family secrets he’s been hiding now threaten their future happiness. Can Edward make amends for his mistakes and will Abi ever be able to forgive and trust him again?
Heartwarming and uplifting, The Colour of Summer is the final book in The House in the Clouds trilogy by bestselling author Victoria Connelly.
