Romance, mystery and suspense My rating: 5 out of 5
Andrea, the mother of two teenagers and a toddler, carer to her slightly dotty mother and partner to Jonathan, is thinking of giving up her teaching job and starting up a new business. And then her home burns down leaving her homeless, possession-less, dog-less and for some reason Jonathan has also disappeared. Fortunately the moody (but good looking) neighbour opposite steps into help, and so begins this fast moving, fun story about Andrea's chaotic life, and that of her family, friends (not all of whom are a friendly as they should be) and neighbours.
Things are not quite as they seem at first, and the book rushes along with plenty of mystery and suspense, feel good moments, romance and disasters. All punctuated by strops from the teenage daughter and witticisms from the dotty mother. This is a wonderful book to make you laugh, sigh and read a little bit longer than you really have time for.
A great womens' fiction book.
