The Gallows Tree by R.J. Scott 5*
BLURB: Cody Garret is only just finding his way after an abusive relationship ended with his ex in prison. Coming to England to restore Mill Cottage is his way of running so he has time to heal. His goal is simple-hire a company to help make the mill cottage saleable then go back to the States.
What he doesn't count on is meeting Sebastian Toulson-Brown, the brother of his contractor and the man who may be able to show him he can stop running.
But first Cody and Sebastian must deal with the ghosts of lost loves and the destinies that are woven into the story of the mill and the sycamore trees that stand on its land, one of which might be the gallows tree.
My Review: Recipe for a great story = take one Domestic Abuse Survivor, add a Tragic Ghost Story, stir in a little angst and romance, set it in a picturesque Olde World English Village and you get this book! I loved it!
