The House at the Bottom of the Hill by Jennie Jones: Looking for answers in all the wrong places? Are you asking the right questions? Will the demons ever be laid to rest?

HouseCharlotte Simmons needed answers. The questions and demons she had been running from since she was six had to be put to rest and soon. Now she had the time and the money to make it happen. What she didn’t count on was a town set in their ways, or even small town lives. Would she ever be granted the answers she so desperately was seeking?

Daniel Bradford had been a new comer to town not that long ago, but after six years he was finally accepted and had learned that slow and steady was the way to go about change around here. He wasn’t looking for love, nor was he looking for anything to throw off his plans, which is why he didn’t want to look to hard at the red haired beauty down the street.

When fate brings Charlotte and Daniel together to work with the town someone must have been laughing or placing bets as to how long they could hold out with the powerful lust between them. However when secrets start to come out between the two of them and then in this small town will their world be to shaken for there to ever be anything between them again?

Ms. Jones’ book, The House at the Bottom of the Hill, is the third in the Swallow’s Fall series although it can be read alone. It is suspenseful without being overwhelming though it is full of drama and tension. The characters are well written though the supporting cast can be better known by picking up the other novels in the series.

The House at the Bottom of the Hill by Jennie Jones is a book whose plot lines will have you reaching for tissues as well as looking for a wall to throw pillows at. The story goes further than romance and into small towns and big hearts. A great read, but be ready for more than flowers and sunshine.

Book Info:

4SPublished January 1st 2015 by Harlequin MIRA

From the best-selling author of House on Burra Burra Lane, comes a brand-new story about opposites, attraction, an outback pub, and a pink house…

The mysterious death of her mother has left Charlotte Simmons on edge and off-balance for too long. The only way to move forward is to get answers, and those answers can only be found in one place. So Charlotte buys a Bed & Breakfast establishment in Swallow’s Falls, a small town in Australia’s Snowy Mountains, as a ploy to get close to the man who might have the answers. She’ll jazz up the old place, flip it, get her answers, and be gone in two-months – max.

What she doesn’t count on is opposition from the dogmatic and slightly eccentric members of the town council, and the hotshot owner of Kookaburra’s Bar & Grill and his two-hundred-squats-a-day physique whose mouth offers to act as mediator, but his eyes promise something so much more.

Easy-going Daniel Bradford knows progress is slow in Swallow’s Fall. He’s finally about to put his plans into place to upgrade the hotel when a prim-and-proper, citified redhead blows into town, putting everyone on edge. The only way to contain the trouble she’s about to cause is to contain her – but he knows trouble when he sees it, and soon it becomes very clear that there’s absolutely nothing containable about Charlotte, or the way he feels about her.
