Do you have a favorite author (or maybe several) that you read, regardless of what they write? I sure do. One of those authors is Julie Klassen. I originally found her first book, The Lady of Milkweed Manor, when it was first published and ever since then, I've been a big fan.

Julie's first book in the Tales From Ivy Hill series released in December. I had the pleasure of attending her release party and it was standing room only! It was so much fun to see so many of Julie's readers there to celebrate.

The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill has a slower pace, which makes it an easy, gentle read. It took me a little while to get into the story, as so much of the beginning was meant to bring the reader up-to-date on what had happened in Jane's life to bring her to this point. But once the characters and their goals were established, the story began to take flight.
Overall, this was a fabulous read and a perfect start to Julie's new series.

About the Book:
Despite their strained relationship, Jane turns to her resentful mother-in-law, Thora, for help. Formerly mistress of The Bell, Thora is struggling to find her place in the world. As she and Jane work together, they form a measure of trust, and Thora's wounded heart begins to heal. When she encounters two men from her past, she sees them--and her future--in a different light.
With pressure mounting from the bank, Jane employs innovative methods to turn the inn around, and puzzles over the intentions of several men who seem to have a vested interest in the place. Will her efforts be enough to save The Bell? And will Thora embrace the possibility of a second chance at love?
