Nobody would ever describe Scarlet Williams as a ray of sunshine, but that doesn’t mean she deserves the flood that wipes out her basement flat, making her temporarily homeless. Enter Joy Hudson, local mayor & sunshine specialist, who opens her house to flood refugees and ends up with Scarlet on her doorstep. Two more opposing characters you couldn’t fail to meet, and yet, somehow, they strike up a friendship. But when the rain stops and the sun comes out, could that friendship blossom into something more?

Scarlet has no real life to speak of, after the loss of her parents a relationship break up. Work and home for Scarlet.
Then she gets notice to leave her flat as it is about to flood!
With only a bag and her guitar she is left homeless.
This is how Scarlet finds herself at Joy’s. Joy is the town’s Mayor who opens her house to some of the flood victims. From the start you can feel the chemistry between the two women.
Can they both overcome the hurdles they believe are there?
One who needs to see that sometimes life is good and another who has to learn to be herself with the whole town watching.
Clare yet again has written a great book with characters that we can all relate too. There is something of all of us in Clare’s characters. It is brilliant to read a book that has great British comedy timing. A sharp wit in characters always brings me further into the book.
Love has a way of finding you when all it seems is lost.
This was actually my first time at listening to an audio book. I was very pleasantly surprised at how I was drawn into the story. The narrator had excellent timing and her accents worked well with the different characters. I am now pretty hooked on audio books.
