Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Willoughby Close...a charming cluster of cozy cottages, each with a story to tell and a happy ending to deliver....

Ellie Matthews has come to Wychwood-on-Lea to find a new start for her and her daughter Abby. But, life there doesn’t start out as idyllic as she had hoped. While Ellie loves her cute cottage in Willoughby Close, the Yummy Mummies at the primary school seem intent on giving her the cold shoulder, Abby has trouble fitting in, and her boss, Oliver Venables, is both surprisingly sexy and irritatingly inscrutable. 

But miracles can happen in the most unexpected places, and in small, yet wonderful ways. Slowly, Ellie and Abby find themselves making friends and experiencing the everyday magic of Willoughby Close. When Oliver’s nephew, Tobias, befriends Abby, the four of them start to feel like family...and Ellie begins to see the kindness and warmth beneath Oliver’s chilly exterior, which awakens both her longing and fear. 

Ellie knows all about disappointment, and the pain of trying too hard for nothing, while Oliver has his own hurts and secrets to deal with. When the past comes rollicking back to remind both of them of their weaknesses and failings, will they be able to overcome their fears and find their own happy ending?

You will root for Ellie, Abby & Oliver!

This is the 2nd book in the Willoughby Close Series (Yay, I love a series!), but it can definitely stand alone. It is the story of young single mother Ellie who has relocated to Wychwood-on-Lea to find a fresh start for her daughter Abby, who had been terribly bullied at her old school. The two will be living in the cottages at Willoughby Close and Ellie will be working as an administrative assistant at Oxford, except the day after they move in, Ellie receives several troubling voice mails from a man, identifying himself as her boss, asking her why she is late to work. Yikes! It turns out that she will be Oliver's personal assistant and her job was starting earlier than she thought! This book takes several twists and turns, covering some truly heart wrenching topics like bullying and mental health issues, but it was ultimately so heart warming and engaging.
Five stars for sure!
