When Jane Bell inherits her husband’s coaching inn, The Bell, she reluctantly takes over as landlady even though she has no experience or no idea how to manage a business. Her brother-in-law and mother-in-law return to help, but their strained relationship makes things more difficult. With the prospect of losing the Inn due to her husband’s questionable behavior, Jane puts her whole heart into saving the Inn and the jobs of her employees.
Thora Bell, Jane’s mother-in-law, resents the fact that her son saw fit to leave the family inn to Jane. She is struggling to overcome her own losses, including her husband, son and the Inn. Will they put their personal differences aside to save the Inn, or can they come to grips that their efforts will fail?
Julie Klassen is a masterful storyteller. Her historical narratives and romantic interludes combine to form a perfect work that satisfies readers of both historical and romantic fiction.
“The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill” will capture your heart. Klassen has written another masterpiece. With just enough history to be interesting, romance to be heart-warming and mystery to be gratifying, you will enjoy your first visit to Ivy Hill and look forward to many more visits to come.
