Summary

In Australia, Simone has been widowed for four years and is ready to make a more interesting life. 

Her friends are driving her mad introducing her to eligible men; her busy daughters are just the opposite, wanting her available for babysitting. When she is offered a house swap with a couple in the UK she takes it, not without some trepidation.

In the UK, Russ has just taken possession of his new house and wants only peace and quiet after a few months of rehab following a serious injury. Can these two help one another avoid meddling friends and relatives and build new lives?

Great contemporary story.

I really enjoyed this as I do all this author’s works. I like the familiar settings and reappearance of places visited in previous novels. It was a perfect heart-warming tale.

desparately dreadful.

this was just a dreadful book. i've enjoyed the historic novels by Anna Jacobs but this was truly awful. i fast forwarded a lot and then gave up. It was a complete waste of money. so sad to have to say that, but true.

I love Anna Jacob's modern books. A really good story, I didn't want it to end.

Disappointing

Very poor. Awful narration of a story could have been written by a ten year old.
