A wonderfully romantic novel from the No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match.
Flora has decided to move to the country to join her family’s antique business.
Her knowledge of antiques may extend only to watching reality programmes on daytime TV, but what she lacks in experience she makes up for in blind enthusiasm.
So she is more than a little put off when she doesn’t receive the warm country welcome she expected. Stuck with a cat about to have kittens, Flora is forced to stay in an abandoned holiday cottage miles from any neighbours.
Between fighting off dinner invitations from the devastatingly handsome Henry, and hiding her secret lodger William, Flora soon discovers country life is far from dull as she sets about trying to save a business that she has grown to love, but which may not survive…
