The Inn at Tansy Falls by Cate Woods

 The Inn at Tansy Falls
Book Summary

Dearest Nell, if you’re reading this letter, I’m already gone. You’re my best friend in the world, and as my last request I’m asking you to lay me to rest hundreds of miles away, in my crazy gorgeous, totally one-of-a-kind hometown of Tansy Falls. I know you’re a born-and-bred city girl, but hear me out. After first losing Adrian, and then me… I know your heart is hurting, Nell. I think you’ll find that you need Tansy Falls as much as I do.

So, I’ve got it all planned out. For two weeks, you’ll be staying at the sweet, local inn and every day you’ll be trying something new. And if you follow my instructions to the letter, you may discover there’s more to my story than you think. A surprise something… or someone at the end of it? Only you can find out!

Some last advice before you set off, Nell. Don’t forget your sturdy boots and make sure to give Boomer, the inn’s resident dog, a belly rub from me. Stay well away from former quarterback Brody Knott (boy, do I have some stories about him!). And finally, let the future bring what it brings. While Tansy Falls may look small, I know better than anyone that new beginnings can be found in all kinds of places. That little Vermont town you’d never heard of? Well, it might suddenly begin to feel just like coming home…

If you love feel-good love stories by ReaAnne Thayne, Debbie Macomber and Robyn Carr, you’ll adore this gorgeous, heart-warming novel about starting over.

My Thoughts

The Inn at Tansy Falls by Cate Woods is a feel-good tale.  Penelope “Nell” Swift goes on a special journey courtesy of her deceased best friend, Megan Shaw.  Nell has become reclusive the last couple of years.  Megan asks Nell to scatter her ashes on Mount Maverick in Tansy Falls, Vermont.  She also wants Nell to explore Tansy Falls and provides a detailed two-week itinerary. We follow Nell as she is forced out of her comfort zone.  The characters are developed, realistic, and relatable.  They are down-to-Earth characters, especially Darlene.  I could relate to Nell who is introverted and socially awkward.  Nell has a big heart.  She loved her best friend and wants to do her last request.  I thought The Inn at Tansy Falls was well-written and thought out. There is good dialogue.  The story moved seamlessly between the past and the present.  The author provides beautiful, vivid descriptions of Tansy Falls.  I could imagine the town, the charming inn, and the cluttered, but cozy general store.  I loved Fiske’s General Store.  I wish there was one in my town.  I appreciated that the author told the story in the third person narrative.  It makes for an easier to read story plus we get to see the bigger picture.  This is a sweet story with wonderful characters, a cozy town, and special ending.  I enjoyed following Nell on her journey where she ventures outside of her comfort zone.  There is some mild foul language in this book.  If you like to read Debbie Macomber and Robyn Carr, then you will enjoy reading The Inn at Tansy Falls.  A phrase that stuck with me from The Inn at Tansy Falls is, “Out of your comfort zone is where the magic happens.”  The Inn at Tansy Falls is a charming tale with a loving letter, an inclusive itinerary, messy mud, sparkling snow, a beloved Boomer, a dubious developer, and a joyful journey.

The Inn at Tansy Falls is available from Amazon*.  You can find Cate Woods other novels here.  Check out Bookouture's other novels here.  Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope I have helped you find a new author and book.  I will be sharing my thoughts on Twisted Lies by Angela Marsons tomorrow.  It is the 14th A DI Kim Stone Crime Thriller.  I hope that you have a heartwarming day.  Take care, be kind, and Happy Reading!
