Summary

Polly has always been the high-flier of the family, with the glamorous lifestyle to match.… Clare is a single mum with two children, struggling to make ends meet in a ramshackle cottage. The two sisters are poles apart and barely on speaking terms.

But then Polly’s fortunes change unexpectedly. Left penniless and with nowhere else to go, she’s forced back to the village where she and Clare grew up, and the sisters find themselves living together for the first time in years. With an old flame reappearing for Polly, a blossoming new career for Clare and a long-buried family secret in the mix, sparks are sure to fly. Unless the two women have more in common than they first thought?

Funny and Easy Listening

This book was a brilliant "listen" it was entertaining and heart felt. The narrator did a brilliant job of keeping is fresh and I wish there was a follow on book as I really enjoyed the two sisters dynamic and wanted to hear more about their future lives. Well written and a must read or "listen"

Good but accents threw me off

Loved the story, it was really heart warming. Only off putting thing was that I spent a lot of the book thinking that most of the characters were welsh, when they were actually based on the South of England

Loved it

I always get so involved in Lucy Diamond's characters and want to know what happens to them as the story unfurls. This book did not disappoint. Saucy language though.

Fluffy marshmallow

Easy to listen to but follows a distinct predictable formula. Enjoyable if you like happy endings not so much if you like a bit of grit in your fiction.

Nice story. But what was with the accents?!

They don't speak like that in Hampshire! Felt a bit like an accent bingo. Not sure it was necessary.

Best Lucy Diamond story!

This is my favorite of all Lucy Diamond's stories. The characters were brilliant and I found I couldn't stop listening. The narrator brought the story to life and her different accents and voices for the children were exceptional. My fave audible in a long while!
