Description

Welcome to Willoughby Close… a charming cluster of cozy cottages, each with a story to tell and a happy ending to deliver…

Alice James has been a drifter her whole life, working her way through several foster homes before ending up in Wychwood-on-Lea, feeling anchorless and invisible. When a chance encounter leads to Alice accepting a position as a caretaker and companion to Lady Stokeley, she starts to feel as if she might finally be able to put down some roots and live the way other people do.
 
Then, Lady Stokeley’s nephew, city banker Henry Trent, storms into Willoughby Manor, seeming to find fault with everything, including Alice. As the next in line to the manor and title, he threatens to upturn everything she’s started to build. But Henry is hiding his own secret fears and weaknesses, ones he's desperate for no one to discover. A surprising and inconvenient attraction that simmers between them leaves Alice feeling more confused than ever, and Henry torn between duty and desire, fear and love.

When circumstances become even more difficult, both Alice and Henry must decide who they really are, and what they are willing to fight for. Could Alice possibly the next Lady of Willoughby Manor?

    Marry Me at Willoughby Close by Kate Hewitt This is Alice James and Henry Trent's story. It is also continuation of Lady Stokeley's story and the final book in this series. Alice's life has been a struggle for her. She longs for love and to feel wanted. Alice wants to be living life not feeling like she isn't good enough. Henry was raised with everything money could buy but also longs to be loved. He comes across as gruff and mean. Is this Henry's way of protecting his heart? Alice is taking care of Henry's aunt which puts Henry and Alice spending time together. They both are attracted to one another but come from different worlds. Will they let their defenses down in order to take a chance on love? This is a sweet and clean story that is emotional and heartwarming. I enjoyed Alice and Henry's story. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
