Blog Tour Stop - Sweetbriars by Hollie Anne Marsh

The Sullivan family pulled up at the heavy wooden gates of the farm. “Sweetbriars” read the name on the gate, and there was a large “For Sale” sign planted out the front. The farm was set in the English countryside of Devon, just over three hours from bustling London. When the Sullivans had received an inheritance, they had looked at a few properties for sale, but none seemed as promising as Sweetbriars. Or, to quote the estate agent... “you have to come see it, straight away, as it will not, I repeat, will not, stay on the market long.” Looking out the car window, Cate released a breath she hadn’t realised she’d been holding. This place might make all her dreams come true, or it might be the end of everything she’d ever known and loved. Cate shifted in her seat. Her sore muscles reminded her of her riding lesson the evening before – her very last one with Bridget. She couldn’t imagine not seeing her trainer anymore. Bridget wasn’t just a riding instructor – she was Cate’s friend and confidante. Sweetbriars was a far cry from the family house in Hertfordshire that Cate had lived in all her life, with its familiar nooks, crannies, and quirks. Even though Cate loved the idea of having her horses at home, three hours was a long way from her best friend Beth and Bridget. Yet here they were.
