A wonderfully romantic novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of A Rose Petal Summer and A Country Escape.
'Thank goodness for Katie Fforde, the perfect author to bring comfort in difficult times. She really is the queen of uplifting, feel good romance.' AJ PEARCE
It's the season of new beginnings for Helena and Gilly.
Gilly runs her own B&B business from her much-loved family home, which she doesn't want to part with - at any price.
But that's before she meets handsome estate agent Leo, and soon she begins to wonder whether selling up might not be such a bad idea after all.
Meanwhile Gilly's daughter Helena has a budding romance of her own. A talented weaver, she's becoming very close to her new landlord, Jago, who's offered to help her at an upcoming craft fair.
It's what friends do, and they are just friends. Aren't they?
With spring in full bloom, Helena and Gilly begin to ask themselves the same question:
Might their new loves lead to happily ever after?
