Bel Burns is in much need of time away and heads to Loch Cameron to visit her sister Sally.  Looking forward to spending the time with her sister, while enjoying the beauty of Scotland that surrounds her.  While staying at the cottage in the quaint little village she meets gardener Christian McDougal.  He encourages her to rent the perfect little space in the village and start a business.  As appealing as it sounds, she wonders if doing so will give her the fresh new start she needs.

A Gift from the Cottage by the Loch written by author Kennedy Kerr is a wonderful and emotional read.  I love the tiny village of Loch Cameron with its amazing surroundings and wonderful residents.  The author does a great job of transporting the reader to picturesque Scotland.  I enjoyed the story of Bel and Christian and Sally was a breath of fresh air.  The completely delightful characters felt like close friends.  If you are ready to vacation to Loch Cameron, pack your bags because this little gem of a story will transport you from where ever you are.  I love this wonderful series and I highly  recommend it.

Turning to face the glittering loch, Bel clasps the worn notepaper tightly in her hand. Will these hastily scrawled words, written decades ago, destroy the new life in the Highlands she’s risked her heart for?

Bel Tipton catches her husband cheating on her, the devastating betrayal sends her running to her sister Sally in the beautiful village of Loch Cameron. Bel needs Sally’s warm laugh and sage advice now more than ever, and she knows curling up with her on the sofa and gossiping late into the night will make her feel whole again.

Bel did not expect her rented cottage overlooking the loch to come with handsome gardener 
Christian McDougal,and she’s determined to be unmoved by his flirty smile and broad shoulders. The last thing she needs is another man she can’t trust. But when Bel sees an empty storefront on the high street for rent, it’s Christian who notices how her eyes light up. He encourages her to set up a business in the village and she realises he’s everything her ex was not.

Then Bel hears a rumour in town that Christian is not all he seems. And, clearing out her store, she finds a collection of letters tied with a worn blue ribbon stashed on a high shelf in the back room. The letters reveal a devastating secret that shook the village generations ago, and Christian’s family are at the heart of it…

Will trusting Christian with her already fragile heart mean Bel loses everything once again? Or is Christian and the village of Loch Cameron the gift she needs to turn her life around?


Kennedy Kerr is a British fiction author. She adores beaches, lochs and stone circles, and loves writing about small communities, mysteries and family secrets. She has a very cuddly cat called Twinkle who spends her days sleeping: Kennedy aspires to having Twinkle’s nap schedule one day.

Kennedy also loves cooking and baking all types of food, which is almost as much fun as eating it. Her favourite foods include (but are not limited to) Indian food, Victoria sponge, breakfast pastries with coffee and sushi. The only thing she’s not particularly keen on is artichoke, and she’d eat it, anyway.
