Genre : Contemporary Romance
Format : eBook
Rating : 5/5 stars

Thank you NetGalley and publisher Curiosity Quills Press for this ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book that’s really quaint and peaceful, just like the title suggested. Peace Cottage is the perfect book if you want to read something warm, cozy and touching.

The book is about Lucy, a mother of two teenage daughters having to face life after she lost her husband to a tragic illness. Broken in her life and shunned by the community of her hometown after a decision she and her family made, Lucy decided to move out with her daughters Delia and Saffy in search for a new place to stay and start anew.

She found a place in East Winsett, Maine and rented a cottage in the woods. The cottage was beyond filthy when they started out but after some cleaning effort they began to appreciate its charm.  But the previous condition of the cottage and its mysterious and reserved owner kept Lucy wondering the history of the cottage.
