Family Secrets At The Inglenook Inn by Helen Rolfe


Family Secrets At The Inglenook Inn by Helen Rolfe is the most charming contemporary novel about family, love and support. It is sure to put a smile on your face as you read.

A warm welcome awaits at Inglenook Inn where guests are treated to delicious treats and home-cooked meals. Nothing is too much trouble.

A family crisis leaves the inn short-staffed but new recruits step in. The inn functions as a family with love and care dished out in spades.

Even the best of families can face hard times. We witness the devastation a tragic accident had on a family as we see the damage that PTSD can do when it is not understood. Families find different ways to cope, no way is right or wrong. Families must wade through life as they feel is right for them.

Secrets have a habit of coming to light. It is easier to bear a burden when it is shared.

All the characters were well drawn, likable and realistic. There were some wonderful verbal exchanges.

Helen Rolfe painted pictures with her words. All the reader’s senses were tempted by her delicious descriptions of home-cooked goodies.

This was a delightfully light-hearted and fun novel despite some very dark themes. Helen Rolfe writes with sensitivity, kindness and from the heart. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Inglenook Inn and hope to drop in again.

I received a free copy from Rachel’s Random Resources for a blog tour. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.

A word to the reader: please if you have been affected by any of the issues in the book, seek help. Do not suffer alone.


Family Secrets at the Inglenook Inn

Welcome back to the Inglenook Inn, your home away from home.

Rupert has been the chef at the Inglenook Inn for years. He loves working at the boutique hotel, crafting exquisite meals and fantastic desserts for each and every guest. When his boss, who is practically family, has to rush away to take care of her daughter, Rupert has to step up and run the place. That would be challenge enough, but then his sister Natalie shows up, bringing a lot more than luggage.

Katy is out of a job and out of luck until she lands a temporary job at the Inglenook Inn. With her years of experience, helping to manage a hotel is a challenge she relishes. But there’s more drama under the roof than she expected and she’s worried her dad might be making a decision he’ll regret.

Rupert and Katy have their hands full, but there’s magic in the air at the Inglenook Inn, and as they work side by side they discover something new and unexpected.

Is it possible to fall in love in just a few short days?
