The Diary from the Cottage by the Loch, by Kennedy Kerr

The Diary from the Cottage by the Loch book cover
Carrie is devastated and guilt-ridden by the death of her sister. She escapes to a holiday home in Scotland, close to where she spent her childhood. Can the welcoming community help to heal her heart?
The Diary from the Cottage by the Loch is a warm and emotional book about moving on from grief. It is the third book to feature the loch community but the first I have read so works perfectly well as a stand alone book.
Carrie blames herself for the car accident that killed her sister. She has already lost her mother whilst her dad is practically a stranger. She has no-one and nothing. But arriving in Loch Cameron, the locals take her under their wing and she is given her great aunt’s diary which contains huge family secrets.
There is also a romantic dimension to the plot as Carrie meets Rory. Their friendship doesn’t have the best of starts but there is a spark. He is also dealing with issues from his past and both need to move forwards and think of the future in order to heal. The writing is warm and has a hopeful tone despite the huge emotional issues the characters have to deal with.
The Diary from the Cottage by the Loch is a wonderfully uplifting book about second chances and facing the future.

About the Book: 
Sitting in the purple heather, Carrie carefully opens the tattered cover of the journal, the gold-edged pages catching the sunlight shimmering off the surface of the loch. The handwriting is unmistakable. The words inside will shatter everything she thought she knew about her family…
Carrie Anderson searches under the flowerpot by the bright blue door and finds the keys to the little whitewashed cottage. Still recovering from the heart-wrenching loss of her beautiful sister, Carrie hopes that staying on the edge of the glittering loch, where the siblings used to spend summers with their great-aunt Maud, will help her heal from her grief.
On a trip to the tiny village store, Carrie literally bumps into ex-Navy officer turned chef Rory McRae. Tall and broad shouldered, at first Rory is infuriatingly distant, but his enthusiasm for his farm-to-table restaurant lights up his rich brown eyes. When he tells Carrie that he’s understaffed, she is quick to offer help. She soon finds Rory’s warm smile and playful jokes are a balm to her heart. Suddenly, Carrie begins to feel less alone.
But then she discovers a diary her aunt Maud kept as a young woman after World War Two. The faded sepia photograph of a baby boy tucked into the back reveals a heartbreaking secret about her family she can scarcely believe. Opening up to Rory, could the discovery of a long-lost relative finally heal the loneliness that has been plaguing Carrie’s heart? Or will the secrets the diary unravels destroy her hope for a new future in Loch Cameron?
Get ready to fall in love with the Scottish Highlands in this stunning, heartbreaking and uplifting read by USA Today bestselling author Kennedy Kerr. For fans of Susanne O’Leary, Debbie Macomber and Pamela Kelley.
