|Summary, etc.:|| On a rise overlooking the Wiltshire countryside stands the village of Ivy Hill. Its coaching inn, The Bell, is its lifeblood -- along with the coach lines that stop there daily, bringing news, mail, travelers, and much-needed trade. Jane Bell lives on the edge of the inn property. She had been a genteel lady until she married the charming innkeeper who promised she would never have to work in his family's inn. But when he dies under mysterious circumstances, Jane finds herself The Bell's owner, and worse, she has three months to pay a large loan or lose the place. Feeling reluctant and ill-equipped, Jane is tempted to abandon her husband's legacy and return to her former life of ease. However, she soon realizes there is more at stake than her comfort. But who can she trust to help her? Her resentful mother-in-law? Her husband's brother, who wanted the inn for himself? Or the handsome newcomer with secret plans of his own? With pressure mounting from the bank, Jane struggles to win over naysayers and turn the place around. Can Jane bring new life to the inn, and to her heart as well?

Ever since her husband, John, was killed nearly a year ago, Jane Bell has felt like she's been sleepwalking through life. Business at the Bell Inn, the coaching house her husband left Jane in his will, has been slowly dwindling, and until now Jane has really had no interest in taking an active role in the inn's management. However, when the village's banker shows up to meet with Jane and inform her that her late husband took out a sizable loan before his death and that the loan is now coming due, Jane realizes that it is time for her to wake up. Three-time Christy Award winner Klassen launches a heartwarming new series set in the Regency era that delivers everything fans of gentle historical-romance novels could ever want, including a beautifully realized English village setting, a memorable cast of characters, and charming hints of love for more than one of the residents of Ivy Hill.
