Would-be gardener Daisy can't believe her luck when her parents announce they're off on a midlife crisis gap year, leaving her in charge of their gorgeous garden. After a turbulent few months, a spot of quiet in the countryside is just what she needs.
A shoulder to cry on wouldn't go amiss either - so when Daisy comes across Elaine and Jo, she breathes a sigh of relief. But her new friends are dealing with dramas of their own...
As Daisy wrestles the garden into something resembling order, her feelings for handsome Irishman George begin to take root. Daisy's heart's desire − her parent's garden − is under threat, and Daisy's forced to confront nosey neighbours and fight greedy developers. Village life is turning out to be far from peaceful.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The village was lovely, the characters were just that - characters! I especially enjoyed the plotting involved in a small village - and I'm not just talking garden plots! There was a nice twist towards the end, which I hadn't seen coming. The storyline was very different from the usual and I loved all the meetings! There's a lot of humour in the book too :) All in all. a lovely read - a perfect holiday book!
I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
