Publisher's Summary

A gorgeous new romance from the best-selling author of The Canal Boat Cafe.

Abby Field loves every inch of Meadowsweet Nature Reserve on the idyllic Suffolk coast, where she lives and works. Especially Swallowtail House, the rambling but empty country house that seems to look out at her each time she passes its shut-up windows.

When a TV wildlife programme choses a rival location for their new series, Meadowsweet is under threat - unless Abby can whip up a plan to keep the visitors flocking. But she finds herself distracted by the arrival of a brooding - and annoyingly handsome - new neighbour...bad-boy novelist Jack Westcoat.

With the pressure on, Abby and her cute rescue huskie, Raffle, must pull something special out of the bag. But with Jack in need of a good friend and Abby feeling the pull of attraction, she can sense her resolve fluttering away....

Unpretentious and comfortable

Like a Friday evening with a movie and a bag of chips on your own old sofa this book is soothing and unpretentious. Maybe it is tad too sweet at the end... but there is nothing wrong with happy endings!
