Summary

Welcome back to Willoughby Close, with four new residents and happy endings to deliver....

Belinda "Lindy" Jamison has moved to the Cotswolds for a fresh start and to open a dancing school - her lifelong dream. Pushing 40 and still looking for Mr. Right, Lindy is determined to no longer wait for happiness but to reach for it with both hands. So she packs up her life and heads south to Wychwood-on-Lea to start up her school. 

Soon Lindy has a motley crew of would-be dancers. But her most intriguing pupil is Roger Wentworth, a 40-something bachelor with a shy and awkward manner, but a heart of blazing gold. When Lindy decides to showcase her pupils in a Christmas show, Roger is deeply reluctant but finally agrees. Lindy longs to bring Roger out of his shell - but she didn’t expect to fall in love with him in the process. 

Soon it is Roger teaching her how two lonely hearts might be able to embrace a second chance this Christmas...if they can just believe they’re both worthy of love.

Brilliant as usual.

Will be sad when I've listened to the next and last of the Willoughby Close sagas. Yes they're predictable but have all been heart warming and have left me with a peaceful smile on my face.

Just lovely

It was an insight how awkward but how wonderful people can overcome invisible obstacles in love and in life. How to not judge and give up. Very light listening and if not concentrating easy to pick up thread of the missed paragraph or two! Sweet listening!

too many personal links

too optimistic and unrealistic of how much an aspie can change his ways. having a dad and a son in the spectrum, I could not stop think "I wish it would work like that." and loosing my mum to pancreatic cancer I wished my mum could have had such a long life after her diagnosis. I think just the too many personal links that made this story a bit harder for me. I liked the rest of the series

Absolutely Loved It

Yet another chapter of the series of comings & goings at Wllouby Close. At the end another smile stretched across my face.
Yes it's predictable but it leaves your feeling all is good.
I'll listen to the next book but will be sad when it finally comes to an end.
One to be recommended.
