On the morning of Lily’s twenty-fifth birthday, it’s time to open the very last letter written to her by her beloved mother, who died when she was eight.
Learning more about the first and only real love of her mum’s life is a revelation. On the same day, Lily also meets Eddie Tessler, a man fleeing fame who just might have the ability to change her world in unimaginable ways. But her childhood friend Dan has his own reasons for not wanting Lily to get too carried away by Eddie’s attentions.
Before long, secrets begin to emerge and Lily’s friends and family become involved. In the beautiful Cotswold village of Stanton Langley, nothing will ever be the same again…
Sweet and lovely – but not too sweet, nor too lovely. Just the perfect level of loveliness to make this a great read, without being overly dramatic or cheesy.
The two storylines converge in a very interesting way, and while the plot is slightly predictable, the journey is so good.
Likable characters and funny dialogue make for a great, light and happy beach read. My first Jill Mansell book, but I will undoubtedly be back for more.
4 out of 5 stars.
