My Review

Kitty Lewis inherits a home and chicken farm business from her late grandmother. She recently lost her mother, and her father died when she was young. She’s had a bit of a lonely existence and somehow the past few years she only spent time doing two things: taking care of her sick mother and reading. She has no friends, no hobbies (other than reading lots of books), no idea who she is as a person and no direction in life.

When she inherits her grandmother’s home and business, she’s faced with a new opportunity at life… and potentially love? She also inherits a cute friendly cat named Allie. Her attractive co-worker Tom seems to be flirty but also seems to be taken. Kitty’s Countryside Dream is a lovely novel filled with secrets, misunderstandings and romance. The story was very enjoyable and the characters were extremely likable. The novel was filled with humor, fun, secrets and romance, which turned out to be a great mix for this story.
