This seemed like a fun summer read, and it is but it has lots of complex characters and thought provoking issues. Ultimately a feel good type of novel…

First line of the book.

The scent of honeysuckle drifted through the open window and late afternoon sunshine fell on the tangles sheets.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Demi desperately needs her luck to change. On the sleeper train down to Cornwall, she can’t help wondering why everything always goes wrong for her. Having missed out on her dream job, and left with nowhere to stay following her boyfriend’s betrayal, pitching up at her grandfather’s cottage is her only option.

Victoria thinks she’s finally got what she wanted: Boscawen, the gorgeous Cornish estate her family owned for generations should now rightfully be hers, following her husband’s sudden death. After years of a loveless marriage and many secret affairs of her own, Victoria thinks new widowhood will suit her very well indeed . . .

But both women are in for a surprise. Surrounded by orchards, gardens and the sea, Boscawen is about to play an unexpected role in both their lives. Can two such different women find a way forward when luck changes both their lives so drastically?

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Demi is a kind and caring but unlucky young girl whose life is about to change drastically (for the better!).

Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

Readers who enjoy contemporary family dramas with plenty of twists and turns, due to family secrets, as well as romance, will love this novel. The setting in Cornwall on a beautiful Cornish estate, where most of the action takes place, is big plus (that’s one of the reasons I bought it in the first place!).

Your favourite line/scene.

I read the paperback version. Here’s a photograph of a scene which refers to the family secret (it’s not a spoiler!):
