Summary

Can the city girl win the village sweetheart?

Single since forever, Natalie Hill has all but given up on love. She's convinced herself and everyone else she wants a quiet life. But if a tall, dark and gorgeous stranger turned up on her doorstep, her plans might change...

Enter Ellie Knap, who's jump-starting her life in the Cotswolds after bailing on her relationship and her career. Her plan? To open an ice cream shop and melt into the village.

When the two meet it's far from love at first sight, but then slowly, they become friends. Then one night, on a moonlit bridge, everything changes...But can Ellie pack up her old life in time to embrace the new? And can Natalie hold on tight when her quiet life suddenly gets deafeningly loud?

another gorgeous audio 😍

I love the author/narrator combo here. The main story arc is captivating as are all the side characters and goings on. The only downside is that it made me want to drink gin and eat ice-cream 😊

sweet

it's a beautiful low angst story with believable characters linking into the village trilogy, as I read more of the genre the sex is less important, though Gabrielle Bakers' sultry londoner accent is divine. this is my first clare lydon book and I will be shopping for more.

Sweet story - light hearted yet above average for this genre

The kind of small town some of us wish we could discover and thrive in some day! (The perfect antidote to backward small town I've been merely surviving in lately.)
