I absolutely adored The Loft – #bookreviewer Salute

Brenda reviews The Loft on Goodreads –

Memory House B&B was a happy home; Ophelia Browne was ninety years of age and had known a lifetime of happiness and memories in her home. It was where she and Edward had made their married life; wonderful, happy memories and Ophelia felt when she was lying in bed in the loft looking at Edward’s beloved stars that he was close to her still. When Annie had come into Ophelia’s life only one year ago, everything had fallen into place. It was as though Annie was meant to be at Memory House; meant to be in Ophelia’s life…

Annie couldn’t believe how happy she finally was. She was marrying Oliver; the man of her dreams. Meeting Oliver after meeting Ophelia was like a dream come true. And now they would be together forever, making their own memories. Oliver’s daddy, Ethan Allan had been the link; and the old bicycle had brought them all together.

The suddenness of change affected them all though. When Annie and Oliver rushed back to attend to Ophelia, they didn’t realize that change was quietly occurring in their lives. And a few weeks later the shock of an unexpected visit meant Annie needed to dig deeper than she ever had before; would her strength and the abiding love she had for Oliver save his life? As Annie searched her heart for a meaningful memory to impart, her positive nature plus her love and determination kept her going; but was it enough?

I absolutely adored The Loft by Bette Lee Crosby! The second in the Memory House series, it is a beautiful, gentle story of love; of mystery and of the magic of memories. Catching up with a cast of characters from Memory House was wonderful – meeting new and interesting characters was fun. I can’t wait for book 3 in the series! Bette Lee Crosby is one of my favourite authors, and her books are a treat. I highly recommend all of this author’s work.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
