On midsummer's day, Phoebe Bowler - star-sign demon - should have returned home a happy new bride. Instead, she's been jilted at the altar. In need of sympathy, she could turn to her neighbour, Rocky Lancaster, but with problems of his own he's turned into Mr Grumpy. That is until Essie Rivers arrives on the scene, and then Phoebe and Rocky's paths seem destined to collide with a very big bump. Essie knows far more about astrology, personology, numerology - any "ology" you care to mention - than Phoebe.
When aromatherapist Sukie Ambrose starts using her cottage garden as inspiration and to gather raw ingredients for her products, she thinks she's found a good way of saving money while offering her clients a way to de-stress and relax. However, Sukie lives in a village where strange things happen. She discovers that her new, improved lotions and potions are making her massages distinctly magical - and producing more star-crossed lovers than Shakespeare could have dreamt of.
Clemmie has a problem: she's had almost as many jobs as she's had birthdays and her love life is on the critical list. But with the big 3-0 looming, she's determined to transform herself from unemployed singleton to loved-up success.
Newly single and unemployed, Cleo Moon ups sticks and moves to the gloriously rustic hamlet of Lovers Knot.

But when she is given the taxing task of organising the annual Harvest shindig, things start going horribly wrong for Cleo.
