Hattie's Mill (by Marcia Willett)


Marcia Willett is one of those modern authors whose style suits my reading tastes. Good characters, if not always very deep; light romances with lots of subplots; happy endings. So I was looking forward to reading her latest novel.

'Hattie's Mill' is about - not surprisingly - someone called Hattie who buys an old mill-house. Then she starts to take in lodgers.

Hattie gets friendly with various local people, and the book is mostly about their interactions. Rather slow-moving, but quite a pleasant book. Nice holiday reading.
