Flat Pack - The Little Irish Farm.png
The Little Irish Farm

Jess Báre moved to the Emerald Isle to chase fairy tales. But when one takes her to an isolated farm in the clover-covered countryside, will she find the happy ending she’s been searching for? Or are some tales best left untold?

Pursuing her dream life in Ireland, twenty-something Dublin newspaper columnist Jess is now half a world away from her family and feeling pretty lonely. At least she has her childhood collection of antique fairy tales. But she longs to be out exploring all the old stories Ireland is famed for.

So when she finds a heart-breaking dedication to a little girl in a new addition to her collection, Jess knows that the story behind it would be perfect for her next column. And, when her research takes her to a tumbledown farmhouse in a tiny Irish village, she can barely contain her joy. The endless rolling hills surrounding the small cottage are just like the scenes in Jess’s favourite novels.

She even warms to the dark and brooding farmer hosting her, Owen. He may come off a little grumpy, but it doesn’t take long for Jess to be swept up by his dark eyes and quiet charms as they walk together across the fresh green fields of the farm. And Jess’s heart melts when she discovers he is hiding a tragic secret…

One wrapped up in the history of the farm, and very same little girl Jess is here to research. But, with the demands of her job calling her back to the home she hates, she must decide: does their story end here at the farm? Or could following her heart heal the wounds of a devastating past, and set her and Owen on the path to happily ever after?

Staying at Eleni's

One minute you’re trying to live the suburban dream and the next minute you’re living the dream in…the Greek Islands.

Sometimes life doesn’t go to plan. Take Annie’s for instance. Her fiancé won’t commit to setting a date and the zipper of her dream dress won’t quite do up.

Annie’s had enough and when her Greek pen pal invites her to come and stay at the family guesthouse on the island of Crete, she wings her way over.

Under Crete’s brilliant blue skies Annie’s about to discover that sometimes you have to let go of the future you thought you had mapped out and let your life make a map all of its own.

Join Annie and her best friend Carl on this humor filled treat to the Greek Islands.

Arriving back in cosy Bibury to stay with her grandmother, Bridget, everything is charmingly familiar. Even her childhood sweetheart, Ben, is as handsome as she remembered…

When We Say Goodbye

Can a broken-down old house help heal a broken heart?

Life can be cruel and it can be unfair, but you know what? Sometimes it can be wonderful. I’m Ellie Perkins, and this is my story.

When my boyfriend Sam was involved in a near-fatal car accident, leaving him in a coma, our lives changed forever, with the future we planned together hanging in limbo. I was barely keeping my head above water when the worst happened.

A life raft was offered when my grandparents' old house, the house I was happiest in as a child, was put up for sale. In hindsight, I thought that, like me, the house was broken and in need of fixing. If I could fix the house, I could fix my broken heart, too.

So, I threw myself into my project with the help of local builder Joel. He was helping me learn to smile again. But then my mother, with whom I’ve had a troublesome past, landed on my doorstep, and suddenly, everything I've been tenuously building threatened to unravel.

I know now that if I'm to fix myself and move forward, I'll have to heal my past first, but are there some things beyond fixing?
