William and Amy love their busy city life, but when Will collapses on his way into work he decides enough is enough and moves his family to the country. Three months later, Amy is standing outside Helmshill Grange, a sullen monstrosity of a house, deep in the Yorkshire moors. Within days, Will has traded in the Audi for a Land Rover and brought home chickens, goats, sheep, a serial-killer cat and a mad dog. But when tragedy strikes, Amy finds herself living a dream that isn't hers....

I found the story a little too unbelievable.... that she could move on so quickly. Took the enjoyment out of the book unfortunately.

Teri has dated more men than she's had low-calorie, low-fat dinners, and she still hasn't found Mr Right. She's found other men, though: Mr Lazy, Mr Greedy, Mr Completely Selfish, Mr Looking-for-Mother-Substitute and Mr Pervert. But no Mr Right. That is until she's literally knocked off her feet by Jamie Duncan as they rush to catch the same train from Euston station: the 18.07 from platform eight. It's not long before love blossoms and commuting takes on a whole new meaning.

I normally enjoy Carole Matthews' books but not this one. I didn't warm to the two main characters at all and didn't find myself wanting things to work out for them.
I thought Terri came across as whingy and moaning and really couldn't see what Jamie saw in her. I also found all the 90s references made the book feel rather dated. Definitely not Carole at her best!
