I would like to thank tanya for this fab review 
The blurb 
Can a mother’s secret past provide the answers for a daughter’s future? 
Celebrity photographer Grace Buchanan has always known that, one day, she’d swap her manic day job for the peace and quiet of her beloved childhood cottage, St Christopher’s – she just didn’t expect it to be so soon. 
At the reading of her mother’s will, she’s shocked to learn that she hardly knew Rosamund at all, and that inheriting St Christopher’s hangs on one big – and very inconvenient – condition: Grace must drop everything for two weeks and travel the country with a mysterious stranger – war-weary Royal Marine, Alasdair Finn. 
Caught in a brief but perfect moment in time, Grace and Alasdair walk in Rosamund’s footsteps and read her letters at each breathtaking new place. As Grace slowly uncovers the truth about her mother’s incredible life story, Alasdair and Grace can’t help but question their own futures. Will Rosamund’s madcap scheme go to plan or will events take an unexpected turn? 
An emotional, fun-filled and adventurous journey of a lifetime.
WHAT I SAY 
This book is about Grace Buchanan Who is not to be read her mums will till 6 month after her funeral. Her mum died of cancer and did not tell her only daughter that she was terminally ill. Therefore she feel guilty about not spending enough time with her mum. 
Her mum sets her a task to do before she can inherit the house called St Christopher's Cottage in Exmoor. The cottage is used as a retreat for service men and women to recover from the ordeals of war. In the garden there is a tree called a wedding tree that was planted as grave was born. 
She is to carry out the task with a man her mum thinks needs a break called Alasdair. During the task she had to scatter the ashes and read letters of her mother through which she learns about her mum prior to her birth. She may even find out who her dad is. 
I really enjoyed this book and could not put it down. In fact staying up till 2.30 am to finish it. The main characters are fantastic and it's great learning about Grace's mum through the letters and the effect that they have on Grace. I can not wait for another book by Melanie Hudson.The wedding cake tree by melaine hudson
