Daniel is new in Whispers Wood. He stumbles upon the village by accident and never wants to leave again. When he sees The Clock House he knows it's the perfect location for the business he has in mind. It would mean a fresh start for him, so he decides to make an offer. Old Man Isaac has to choose between Daniel and Kate, but before he'll make his decision he has a challenge for them. Who will be allowed to buy the house?
The Little Clock House on the Green is a wonderful romantic story. Kate is a sweet and generous person. She's been through a lot and grief has been her constant companion for a long time. Being back in Whispers Wood is confronting, but also healing. Kate can finally start the next chapter of her life, which begins with a battle between her and Daniel. They're evenly matched and it was fun to read about their schemes and ideas. There are also plenty of sparks between them and I couldn't wait to find out if their desire to buy the same building would come between them or if love would be victorious instead.
Daniel has a great sense of humor and he's a kind and chivalrous man. He's been hurt by several people who used to be close to him and hopes he's finally found the place where he belongs. Whispers Wood is hospitable and everyone welcomes him with open arms. For me that was one of the most amazing parts of the book. His battle with Kate isn't only taking place on a business level, there's so much more at stake. I loved the combination of creative entrepreneurship and deep emotions. The Little Clock House on the Green has plenty of fascinating elements and Kate and Daniel are two terrific main characters. They have charisma, determination, spunk and guts and that makes the story enchanting and entertaining.
Whispers Wood is a fantastic setting. Eve Devon's vivid descriptions of the village itself and the, sometimes eccentric, inhabitants are making it come to life very well. Whispers Green is a beautiful location and it's perfect for a story about family, friendship and love. The sense of community is heartwarming and it kept putting a smile on my face. I absolutely loved this delightful story. It's charming, lively, moving and endearing and I really enjoyed reading it.
This book was the first that I have read by this author, and it was seriously adorable. The small village setting is wonderful, the competition between Kate and Daniel is hysterical, and the secondary characters are great. At first, I wondered if the stories of the side characters would take away from the Kate/Daniel story line but it was just the opposite, they absolutely enhanced it.
The plot of having to throw a 'fete' for the village and having a contest to see who will be allowed to buy the little clock house should have been ridiculous, but it really was not. It was absolutely adorable. The different ideas that Kate and Daniel came up with to fund-raise and for the 'fete' were great, and I loved how they dealt with the things that came up between them.
There were moments in this book that made me laugh, but I'm not sure any were better than – without being too specific - Kate in the back yard. I am glad I was alone while reading that scene because that made me laugh out loud.
My only two minor “issues” with this book were that the postcards were teeny tiny and impossible to read. I zoomed in on my Kindle, but they were still really fuzzy, which is too bad because they're important to the places that they are in the book. The other issue was probably more about me than anything, but it seemed like every other page there was a pop-culture reference that I just didn't get. At first I Googled all of the things I didn't understand, but eventually it got to be too much time spent switching between the book and the web browser, so I just ignored them unless they were important to the plot. Crispin nailed it on the head when he said, “You know, sometimes I genuinely have no idea what you're talking about.”
If you're looking for a fun, sweet read about extremely likable main (and side) characters, and a sweet little village, you should give this one a read – you won't be sorry.
I was very graciously gifted a copy of this book and was under no obligation to write a positive review, I did so because the book was a great read.
