New start, new love. That's what Honor Sontag needs after her life falls apart, leaving her reputation in tatters- so she flees her native America and heads for Brighton, England. Honor's hoping for a much-deserved break and the chance to find the mother who abandoned her as a baby. What she gets is an entanglement with a mysterious man. Martyn Mayfair has sworn off women with strings attached, but is irresistibly drawn to Honor, the American who keeps popping up in his life. All he wants is an uncomplicated relationship built on honesty, but Honor's past threatens to undermine everything.

Like her other books this has a women’s fiction feel - a lot of story about everyday characters, but it’s definitely romance.
I liked things Honor did to stop a bully from hurting Rufus.
I liked the plot of Honor’s current husband doing bad things causing her to leave. Then he wants her back and does more bad things. That was a good story.
I did not like the first fight/misunderstanding between Martyn and Honor. He was mad at something that didn’t feel right to me - like the author was stretching for a conflict to write about. A later separation/misunderstanding was more believable.
If you’re looking for steamy sex you won’t find it here. There is one sex scene vaguely done which was good for relationship development.
I didn’t think about the narrator Jennifer Woodward, which means she was good.
Genre: contemporary romance, divorce
