A House to Mend a Broken Heart is the first in a new series by Alison Sherlock, centred around those who live and work at stately home Willow Tree Hall. The synopsis says: "Willow Tree Hall has seen much better days and has been the proud ancestral home of the Earl and Countess of Cranley for centuries.
With no qualifications and escaping her past, Annie Rogers takes the job as housekeeper to widowed Arthur, the charming current Earl of Cranley. After a bad fall puts Arthur in hospital, it's up to a reluctant heir apparent Sam Harris, to lend a helping hand and try to find a sustainable future for the Estate. With the house requiring a full renovation, Annie suddenly finds herself completely out of her depth with a team of dodgy builders and Sam watching critically from the sidelines.
With Sam running from his past and Annie hiding from hers, just maybe together they can bring Willow Tree Hall back to life." A House to Mend a Broken Heart is out in July 2017.
