Thank to Jessica Redland, Boldwood Books and Netgalley for a copy of this book in return for an honest review and Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for organising this blog tour.
Welcome to Bumblebee Barn, home to wonderful animals, stunning views and spectacular sunsets – and resident young farmer, Barney.
While Barney loves his life at Bumblebee Barn – a farm that has been in his family for generations – he’s struggling to find someone to share it with. The early mornings quad biking through muddy fields and the long hours looking after the crops and animals are proving to be a deterrent to finding love.
So when his sister, Fizz – desperate for Barney to find his soulmate – sees an advert for Love on a Farm, a new reality TV show to help farmers find love, he has nothing to lose by applying. Afterall, he isn’t meeting anyone suitable down the traditional route and surely he won’t be picked anyway…?
Thrown into the chaos of reality TV, Barney could never have expected that his whole life would be turned upside down, with buried secrets to be uncovered and his heart on the line. With his family and friends rooting for him, could the magic of Bumblebee Barn heal his broken heart and help him find love on the farm?

I absolutely adored this new stand-alone novel from Jessica Redland and I cannot recommend it enough.
One of my favourite parts is that the main focus is on Barney – the main, male protagonist. Of course there is Amber, the female love interest however it’s rare in the books I read that the spotlight falls more onto the male. It was so refreshing to have a character like Barney – who wants to settle down and fill his home with a family and love. He’s such a sweetheart and genuinely lovely guy who deserves what he wants. He adores his family and his friends.
I also loved Amber – smart and kind and fiercely protective over her sibling. Her love of nature, wildlife, animals and the countryside really shines through her personality and makes her so endearing. She is definitely someone I would love to be friends with.
Both Amber and Barney are hiding a terrible family secret that affects and impacts a lot of their decisions and choices in life, as well as their well-being. When Barney is a contestant on a reality TV show produced by Amber (called Love on the Farm), they become friends and form a strong bond.
The plot was so enjoyable and I was so excited to see where it would lead that I couldn’t put it down. I became totally invested in Barney and Amber and their friendship and support for each other that I was smitten. I was desperate to learn more about their secrets and backgrounds and wanted them both to be happy in their lives.
I adored this new novel from Jessica and cannot wait for you guys to enjoy it to.
