Summary

Maddy fled the market town of Havenbury Magna three years ago, the scene of a traumatic incident she revisits most clearly in her dreams. Even so, when she is called back to help at the Havenbury Arms when her godfather, Patrick, suffers a heart attack, she is unprepared for the welter of emotions her return provokes. Psychologist and ex-army officer Ben finds himself falling for her. Then Maddy's mother, Helen, arrives, and Patrick himself must confront a few uncomfortable truths about his history and the pub's future.

Boring

I’m sorry but I cannot recommend this book. I only kept listening because Emma Powell was the narrator. She’s so good. I couldn’t get into the story and waited for something interesting to happen.

A warm hug of a book!

Very engaging story. Believable with enough escapism to give you the feel good factor! Great characters and wonderful English setting.
Would recommend.

Best book I have ever read on Holiday.

Loved it. Very romantic, great characters. It really touched something personal in me! and was perfect for my relaxed Holiday by the pool. Not too taxing, just right. I can't wait for the next story to come out.
