The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill - Julie Klassen

The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill (Tales From Ivy Hill Book #1)  - Julie Klassen
            I love Julie Klassen!  She is one of my favorite authors.   Several of her books rate among my favorites like A Girl in the Gatehouse and The Silent Governess.  Knowing this is the truth….it pains me to say that I didn’t even finish The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill.  I did read about 50% of the book, but I never felt a connection with the characters.
            Jane Bell is a young widow who is left a coaching inn by her husband.  Her mother-in-law, Thora, grew up in the inn.  Thora knows all about running the inn.   Jane has never worked in the inn – really she has never worked anywhere.  The inn comes to her with a huge debt.  Jane does dig in and learns how to work.  Her brother-in-law is helping at the inn too.  I don’t trust him, but I didn’t care enough to finish the book.  There is a new romance on the horizon, I think, for Thora.
            I will try Julie Klassen’s next book.  I am sure I will be the only one who feels this way about this book!

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
