The Cheesemaker's HouseThe Cheesemaker’s House by Jane Cable

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Cheesemaker’s House is a mystery. Alice Hart has moved to Great Fencote, a village in Yorkshire, after breaking up with her husband. She plans a new start in a house she wants to renovate along with a barn she’d like to turn into a holiday let.

In the small village, she makes friends and finds she’s intrigued by Owen Maltby, but there’s something mysterious about Owen and the way he acts at times. Alice employs Richard Wainwright to help with the renovations but he’d like to be more than friends.

At night Alice can often hear someone crying and what was Owen doing sat under a tree when he should have been somewhere else? When the builders discover a skull in the barn the mystery builds up, Alice has several visions and then Owen disappears and is seen jumping off a bridge into the river. It’s time to discover more about the history of Alice’s house which once belonged to a Cheesemaker and lay some ghosts to rest.

This is an interesting read set in the lovely Yorkshire countryside which includes the life of a village charmer and healer.

Good Deeds Challenge Year 2, Week 45

Welcome to my second Year of Good Deeds, a challenge I set myself during April 2013. Iย decided to do at least one Good Deed a day for a whole year, now I am into my second year.

New Good DeedsThis week Iโ€™ve been doing the following;

February 22nd – Today I’ve been reading Seventh Mark by W.J May a YA paranormal fantasy. I was going to visit my parents this afternoon and help out with a little computer issue, but when I went to get my car I found it really sick and unsafe to drive. I’ve sent a text to my friendly mechanic who I hope can get the car fixed early this week. No car will be a challenge but then I can do with out for a short while and get more reading done.

February 23rd – I finished reading The Cheesemaker’s House by local author Jane Cable today. My car fell sick and was taken away to be mended, Good deeds received, the mechanic feed up some time and got my car back on the road this afternoon.

February 24th – I’m reading Two Rivers by Zoe Saadie. Got a new book in the post today.

February 25th – Collected up boxes and bags for the relatives who are soon moving house, so that they can start sorting their items, offered to help when they need it.

February 26th – I’m reading The Thing with feathers by Noah Strycker, a non-fiction book looking at our feathered friends.

February 27th – Tipped my hairdresser who did a marvellous job of tidying my mop of hair. Giving a friend some help with Twitter.

February 28th – Hosting a sleepover this evening for a birthday celebration. Am reading A Spell In Provence by Marie Laval
