What can you do to make the world a better place? Libby helps a stranger and transforms her life in the process.
Libby and her husband, Jason, have moved back to his hometown to turn the family B&B into a boutique hotel. They have left London behind and all the memories - good and bad - that went with it. The injured woman Libby finds lying in the remote country road has lost her memory. She doesn't know why she came to be there, and no one seems to be looking for her.
When Libby offers to take her in, this one small act of kindness sets in motion a chain of events that will change many people's lives....

I really enjoyed this gentle, feel good story. Yes it was predictable, but the little twists and turns through life's challenges were well portrayed through each of the main characters.
I liked the fact that none of the characters was perfect, but most came to recognise and deal with their faults.
Lucy Dillon portrayed Lord Bob in such a colourful way, he was so endearingly cheeky, that he got under one's skin. He definitely knew who was Lord of the Manor.
Lucy dealt with the aspects of grief that can be quite debilitating in a sensitive manner.
Worth a read .
I enjoyed Lucy Price-Lewis' excellent, clear, sensitive narration. She got the accents right, flowing from one to the next effortlessly, portraying the characters well, with just a couple of minor slips. The editing of the narration has been very well done. Many other books would benefit from such good editing. The story/ narration flowed seamlessly.
I really enjoyed this book.
The characters we interesting, to story was well written.
Lucy P's narration was very easy to listen to.
I have now added more of Lucy D's books to my wish list.
Had everything I love in a story. The narrator also has a fabulous accent and way of reading; she is very easy to listen to.
This was my second Lucy Dillon book...now i must google to see if she has written any more.
A new favourite author!
"Very touching and Suspenseful"
Ooh what a great read!! Full of suspense and character; compassion and treachery; love and contempt and rewarding kindness.
This book speaks to the realities of the difficulties in marriage, the grieving process, the effects of past trauma on our characters, the influences of society and friends; the traps and temptations of keeping up appearances; and, abusive or toxic relationships. It's a book that reminds us of the importance of kindness and its rewards can be both direct and indirect, immediate or long term. It's a really good book and I can understand why it's a bestseller!
Wonderful story of family love and strife
Realisation of own expectations and others
Wish to know more of the story
"Twee and irritating from the get go"
The woman is introduced as a nervous, tweely plucky, incompetent fool. I prefer stories where the main protagonists are savvy and confident.
"Average light reading"
I liked the book overall but found the performance a bit difficult as Libby sounded so whiny. Perhaps that was the intention but I found it a shame.
I can never stop a book without knowing the ending but wish I had been able to do this with this one as I found it average and the simple plot a bit too drawn out.
This was a lovely book that you expect to have a happy ending, but lots of twists and turns on the way and funny as well.
The opening one
laughed in places
"Another great Lucy Dillon story!"
Another lovely story..
Makes you want to be a better person.
Looking forward to another book by the same author.
"lovely light holiday listen"
a nice story, with great narration, and likeable characters. I found myself feeling disappointed that I'd finished it. always a good Sign!
Listened well into the night. Real feel good pick me up. Just the boost of goodness to restore your faith in human nature.
Nice pleasant make you smile book
Not great plot but nice easy listening
I would read her other books
Loved the story, didn't like the abrupt ending.
I would have liked it to continue with all the happy ever afters, even though I knew the outcome.
