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?

Where do I start!
Although a little slow to start, once the two main characters meet, Scarlet and Joy, things soon became clear that this book was indeed a worthy listen.
I found it very wholesome, is that the word?
The characters, normal down to earth people. Refreshing that you don’t have to be CEO of a huge company and be dripping with wealth.
The British humour also was a very welcome touch, the banter between the two main characters brought a smile to my face more than once.
The love scenes were breathtaking, Gabrielle Baker truly bringing the characters to life.
The story also reflected part of my own life having only come out in my forties. Knowing that feeling of being true to oneself and having no option but to change course, with consequences that you know are going to hurt people you love. The feeling of excitement but also the very daunting life changing passage one has to take to become who you really are.
Also my ex is called Steve and like Joy we are
good friends.
Ok, rambling over.
Listen to this book, it’s a bloody good story, you won’t be disappointed.
