When Ellie and Grace meet, the two very different women find they can help each other out. Ellie needs a place to stay; Grace needs a lodger. Both of them need a friend. But then the disconcertingly engaging Flynn Cormack arrives on the scene, apparently determined to help. And when Grace discovers some beautiful painted panels hidden behind the tattered dining-room curtains, the whole business of restoration starts to get serious.

"Delicious." (Sunday Times [London])
"Fforde's storytelling skills are reassuringly classic." (The Independent [London])
At the beginning Grace's house is empty of love and almost of possessions. Then Ellie enters - she brings in joy, comfort and furniture. It is a double romance in one story, as Ellie and Grace both find new loves. Themes in the book include wine tasting, problem solving and painting restoration.
As always, I loved this book by Katie Fforde. I found I couldn't stop listening to it until it was finished, and downloaded the next one right away!
