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.
