My #Review of The Cosy Castle on the Loch: Spring (Book 1) @AliceRoss22

Nothing in Flora Hamilton’s twenty-two-year existence has ever gone to plan. But when she finds herself whipped up in a whirl of activity at Glenduff Castle to neatly tie up the rest of her life for her, she begins to panic.

With pressure coming at her from all sides, the easiest option is for Flora to go along with it all. But will the appearance of a handsome stranger at Glenduff provide her with a more attractive alternative?

This is the first of four short stories in The Cosy Castle on the Loch series. 

Coming next:  Summer, then Autumn and finally Winter.



Anyone who follows my blog will know that I am a huge fan of Alice’s books so it is probably no surprise that I read this one as soon as it landed on my Kindle!

I love the Highlands and spent my first holiday with my husband there as well as our honeymoon (and other holidays since) so it was lovely to read a book set in the same area!  The book is only a short read of 100 pages so it doesn’t take too long to read and I read it one evening happily passing a few hours.

The book centres around the upcoming wedding of Flora, the Receptionist at Glenduff Castle who is marrying her fiancé Joe – I thought that they were both great characters and the supporting cast is just lovely and really helps bring the story to life and show what it is like living in a small village where the whole community gets involved!

I am really looking forward to reading the next book in the series – Summer!  You can grab your copy of the book on the link below and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did – no hesitation from me in giving this one five stars!!




Alice Ross used to work in the financial services industry where she wrote riveting, enthralling brochures about pensions and ISAs that everyone read avidly and no one ever put straight into the bin.

Missing Blighty (including the weather – but don’t tell anyone), she returned five years later and now works part-time in the tourism industry.

When not writing, she can be found scratching out a tune on her violin, walking her dog in wellies two sizes too big (don’t ask!), or standing on her head in a yoga pose.
