Can love really be found when you stop looking for it...?
As Samantha Wishaw watches the love of her life marry another woman, she’s ready to give up hope of finding her happy ever after.
But when a chance encounter leads Sam to find friendship in Thomas - a lonely, grumpy elderly widower living at derelict Hedgehog Hollow - her life is about to change forever.
Glad to have a distraction from family feuds and match-making, Sam vows to fulfil Thomas and his wife, Gwendoline's, dreams of restoring Hedgehog Hollow to its former glory, and to open a hedgehog rescue centre.
Throwing herself into the task at hand, little does Sam realise that the keys to love and happiness may also be found at Hedgehog Hollow, when she least expects it...
Escape to Hedgehog Hollow this summer with top 10 bestseller Jessica Redland for the perfect uplifting, feel-good read.

I felt great empathy and concern for Samantha, which increased the enjoyment of the book. The characters spring out at the reader, just begging to be cared for.
As I am an animal advocate, I just melt when I find books that have oodles of animals in them.
Do your self a favour. I also don’t want to leave Hedgehog Hallows

This book is a wonderful story into friend and family relationships. Sam is a person who always tries to please but as far as her mother is concerned, this seems an impossible task. Nothing Sam does or says is good enough for her. Fortunately, both her dad and gramps recognise what a lovely caring person she is.
She had to cope with the devastation she felt when her cousin (and best friend) was marrying the man she loved and also she was bridesmaid at the wedding.......Something no-one would want to face.
However, her life changed completely when she unexpectedly meets Thomas, a very lonely widower and someone who basically doesn't want anyone in his life. But in a short while they form a lovely relationship and through him she is able to rekindle the enthusiasm she had for hedgehogs when she was a child. Sam also finds a new love interest, also in unexpected cicumstances.
I don't want to reveal any more of the story but I will say that this is brilliantly written book. It will set your emotions on fire. You will feel tearful at times (so get the tissues ready), also parts will make you feel angry, but happiness is also there to cheer you up.
Jessica always writes with such feeling that you are soon drawn into her heroine's life, with all it's ups and downs.
I would encourage you to read this book, or listen to it, or both as in my case, and enjoy this wonderfully written story. I am looking forward to revisiting Hedgehog Hollow when the 2nd book in the series is released.
It's the story of Samantha and her truly dysfunctional family. Her mother is seriously appalling and treats Sam with contempt. She's always on the side of her sister and her sister's beautiful daughter, Sam's cousin, who used to be Sam's best friend.
On the day of her cousin's wedding, Sam is forced to admit that she's still in love with her ex. Unfortunately, he's the man her cousin has just married! Oh, that doesn't go down well at all...
No one listens to Sam's side of the story about anything, and if it wasn't for her father I really don't know how she'd cope. Luckily he's a lovely man who adores his daughter, but his voice of reason is always drowned out by the spiteful outpourings of his wife.
Samantha's life changes when she gets lost on the Wolds and stumbles across Hedgehog Hollow. There she meets Thomas, and that meeting is the catalyst for everything that follows. Thomas is a lonely widower, still grieving for the loss of his darling wife, Gwendoline. It was Gwendoline's desire to turn Hedgehog Hollow into a hedgehog sanctuary, but she died before her dream could come true.
Thomas has lived alone for so long he's almost forgotten how to talk to people, and he's determined to keep Sam at arm's length. Sam wonders what, exactly, she can do to get through to him.
This is such a lovely, heartwarming story. The relationship between Sam and Thomas is beautiful, and had me in tears at several points during my reading. I felt furious on Sam's behalf over her treatment by her truly vile mother, and her hysterical over-the-top cousin. I also felt that various other members of Sam's family were weak and let her down badly. I was so glad she had a father she could rely on and turn to, but I could well understand her friendship with Thomas. They are two lonely people who need each other, and it was lovely to see their relationship blossom and how that all played out - although it's also very emotional, so be warned!
I've loved all of Jessica Redland's books but this is definitely my favourite so far. I loved everything about it, and I really felt at home in the setting of the Wolds, even though I always liked Whitsborough Bay. I'm so glad there will be further books in this series and I can't wait to read them.
Sam has always felt she was an outcast in her family. Well, made to feel like one from her mother specifically. Nothing she did ever seemed right. Despite reassurances from her grandparents and her aunt and dad, Sam never thought she measured up, especially when compared to her beautiful cousin, Chloe. Chloe has everything: looks, talent, the approval of Sam’s mother and now she has Sam’s boyfriend, and they are getting married.
The events of that night will change Sam’s life in ways that she could never imagine.
And fulfil a dream that has been twenty years on hold.
Well written, and with superb insights in the human condition, aFinding Love at Hedgehog Hollow will keep you engrossed from the first page to the last.
