Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

It must be love. A wonderfully romantic novel from the number one Sunday Times best-selling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match.

Althea is the mother of three strong-minded children - one of whom is a Buddhist - and owner of a finicky dog named Bozo. 

Saddled with too large a house (albeit in a beautiful Cotswold village), worrisome mortgage payments, a bossy younger sister and irksome ex-husband, Althea still manages to muddle through life comfortably enough. Until she loses her job. 

Seeking solace in her borrowed greenhouse, Althea decides to develop her passion for gardening. And when she wins the opportunity to design a garden at the Chelsea Flower Show with the unexpected help of gorgeous architect Patrick Donahugh, it looks as though Althea may have unearthed a new man as well as a new career....

Katie Fforde and Jilly Bond is match made

I love the combination of Katie Fforde’s stories and Jilly Bond’s narration. As always, Katie creates a wonderful page turner.

Classic Katie

Katie Fforde doing what she does best, pure escapism. My only slight flaw is that the character is 39 but you think of her as older because the narrator is older

Detail = just enough

Love the detail the author always puts into her novels. I almost feel that I could go out and dig up a plot myself!

One of my favourite Katie Fforde books

Likable characters in a comfy setting. It's a very easy listen. I could quibble about the kids not really acting their ages but it didn't detract from my overall enjoyment. Jilly Bond isn't great at male voices however.
