The Inn at Tansy Falls by Cate Woods

Dearest Nell, if you’re reading this letter, I’m already gone. You’re my best friend in the world, and as my last request I’m asking you to lay me to rest hundreds of miles away, in my crazy gorgeous, totally one-of-a-kind hometown of Tansy Falls. I know you’re a born-and-bred city girl, but hear me out. After first losing Adrian, and then me… I know your heart is hurting, Nell. I think you’ll find that you need Tansy Falls as much as I do.

So, I’ve got it all planned out. For two weeks, you’ll be staying at the sweet, local inn and every day you’ll be trying something new. And if you follow my instructions to the letter, you may discover there’s more to my story than you think. A surprise something… or someone at the end of it? Only you can find out!

Some last advice before you set off, Nell. Don’t forget your sturdy boots and make sure to give Boomer, the inn’s resident dog, a belly rub from me. Stay well away from former quarterback Brody Knott (boy, do I have some stories about him!). And finally, let the future bring what it brings. While Tansy Falls may look small, I know better than anyone that new beginnings can be found in all kinds of places. That little Vermont town you’d never heard of? Well, it might suddenly begin to feel just like coming home…

If you love feel-good love stories by ReaAnne Thayne, Debbie Macomber and Robyn Carr, you’ll adore this gorgeous, heart-warming novel about starting over.

My Thoughts


Whilst living in London, Nell Swifts best friend Megan tragically passes away following a battle with cancer. Before she died, Megan had passed Nell a letter and told her that Nell must read it after she passes away. In this letter, Megan asks Nell to trusts her – as she sends her best friend on a journey to a small town in Vermont called Tansy Falls.

Nell can’t possibly refuse her best friends dying request, so soon enough she finds herself in Tansy Falls where she meets quite an array of interesting characters who change her life in ways she never could have imagined.

Nell has to learn to open her heart once again to the possibility of finding love, after her ex shattered her heart alongside her faith in finding her happily ever after. In Tansy falls, Nell meets several potential love interests, but if you wish to know more about that, well… you will simply have to read this delightful book.

This is one of those gorgeous stories you lose yourself in from the very start. Nell is such a loveable, relatable character who captures your heart from the first time we meet her. I loved learning more about the bond that Megan and Nell shared, and all of the places which she instructed Nell to visit all held fond memories for Megan – something she is keen for her best friend to discover too.

Beautifully written, full of emotion, laughter, and moments that melt your heart – this is a book I would happily read over and over again!.
