Family Secrets at the Inglenook Inn by Helen Rolfe

I have previously read and enjoyed two of Helen Rolfe’s books – The Farmhouse of Second Chances and Finding Happiness at Heritage View but this one is the first of her books based in the USA that I’ve read. It is Book 7 of the New York Ever After series, but can easily be read as a standalone.

The novel tells the story of Rupert and Katy and the chapters are told from their viewpoints. Rupert is 33 years old and works as a chef at The Inglenook Inn in Greenwich Village, New York City. Katy is 29 and is in a bit of a rut, her widowed father having a serious girlfriend and finding herself rather a spare part at home. She becomes unemployed, but soon finds a job at The Inglenook Inn.

I loved The Inglenook Inn, as it comes across as so welcoming with its small staff who really care about the customers. Everyone is hard-working and tries their best and all this means the Inn has a feeling of being quite a small family business, more suited to an English village that big, bustling New York. I could definitely see myself visiting it!

Helen Rolfe’s writing style is very easy to get into. She tells you enough about the characters that they feel like friends and you are rooting for them to find happiness. I enjoyed my virtual trip to New York and learning about Rupert and Katy. I’ll look forward to reading more of Helen’s books in the future.


Family Secrets at the Inglenook Inn

Welcome back to the Inglenook Inn, your home away from home.

Rupert has been the chef at the Inglenook Inn for years. He loves working at the boutique hotel, crafting exquisite meals and fantastic desserts for each and every guest. When his boss, who is practically family, has to rush away to take care of her daughter, Rupert has to step up and run the place. That would be challenge enough, but then his sister Natalie shows up, bringing a lot more than luggage.

Katy is out of a job and out of luck until she lands a temporary job at the Inglenook Inn. With her years of experience, helping to manage a hotel is a challenge she relishes. But there’s more drama under the roof than she expected and she’s worried her dad might be making a decision he’ll regret.

Rupert and Katy have their hands full, but there’s magic in the air at the Inglenook Inn, and as they work side by side they discover something new and unexpected.

Is it possible to fall in love in just a few short days?
