My review

Emma Davies is one author whose books make me fall in love and feel gooey inside. Her books are a comfort when things get tough. Her writing makes me feel warm as if I am meeting a long lost friend.

This book too had main character Megan feeling betrayed when a rival design in a blacksmith competition turns out to be similar to hers. Things are not what it seems to be in the so called close and loving community. Someone is leaking her designs and spreading rumors about her boyfriend Liam.

I love the way author Emma Davies develops her characters, they are all living and sweet but they do come with a bite. Megan too is not the one to take it lying down. I love her spirit and her friendship with Clara.

The book made me happy and left me smiling, it accepted me into its folds on the day I was feeling rejected. Since it made me smile, I didn’t care about the niggles. Joy’s Acre Farm was a real joy to read and it left me with a desire of wanting more.

My rating : 5 stars

Book blurb

It has been a difficult few years for thirty-year-old Megan Forrester, completing her apprenticeship and trying to maintain a long-distance relationship with her gorgeous boyfriend, Liam.

She’s returned home to compete in a local craft competition. The prize is the chance to design beautiful new gates for the estate at the bottom of the hill, a job which could secure her future in the village forever.

As the contest gets underway, Megan is devastated when a rival design turns out to be almost identical to hers. Someone in the close-knit community must have leaked her sketches, but who? Is it the same person spreading heartbreaking rumours about Liam?
