Lets kick off today with another visit to Hedgehog Hollow as I share my review for Family Secrets at Hedgehog Hollow by Jessica Redland

My Review

I absolutely love this series and was so excited to be able to visit Hedgehog Hollow again. This story picks up shortly after the end of the last one, so with no gap in the time line within a few pages it felt like I had continued straight on from the last book.

As Sam works to look after Josh’s family and devote her time to the growing number of Hedgehogs she is rescuing, she doesn’t anticipate Chloe serving notice on her marriage and just appearing on her doorstep. With a distraught Chloe and an unsettled baby Samuel to add to her growing list of commitments, we finally see Sam take a stand and start to stand up to those who are prepared to take advantage of her kind and forgiving nature.

I loved learning more about the hedgehogs, especially with it being the time of year that you are more likely to see hoglets in your garden. During this story we learn more about the past and what has caused Chloe and Sam’s mum to be so close and we look forward to the future as they search for a match for Josh’s Dad to have further treatment for his cancer.

A story full of questions, despair and love, I loved the pages from beginning to end and enjoyed another wonderful visit to Hedgehog Hollow, where I once again reached the end before I was ready and am already desperate to read the next one.

Book Blurb

Every family has its secrets, and at Hedgehog Hollow there is no exception…

It was always Samantha’s dream to run her beautiful rescue centre, Hedgehog Hollow, full-time. But just as her wish comes true, she becomes a victim of her own kindness when she finds herself with a house full of guests – all with their own problems and secrets – looking to her for support.

When her self-absorbed cousin, Chloe, unexpectedly turns up at the farm – swiftly handing over her baby to Samantha to care for – trouble is definitely brewing. Especially as Chloe won’t tell anyone why she’s left her husband, James…

As Samantha juggles new hedgehog arrivals, family dramas and her own health challenges, it soon becomes clear that she needs to start putting herself first for once. Little does she know that life-changing secrets from the past are about to unravel and turn their lives upside down…

Return to glorious Hedgehog Hollow with top 10 bestseller Jessica Redland for a heartwarming, emotional but uplifting story of family, friendship and moving on from the past.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.

  1. Thank you for your gorgeous review, Kel. The hedgehogs (and goblets) and I are delighted you loved your 3rd trip to Hedgehog Hollow. Really appreciate the kind words. They’ll be back on 6th January in ‘A Wedding at Hedgehog Hollow’ so a little wait but hopefully not too long a wait x
