Book Description

17 Jun 2004

Charlotte Lawrence, widowed at thirty-four, decides to return to all things pre-Peter, and that means moving back to the Cheshire village of her childhood.

It also means exchanging a clinical company flat for the pretty but overgrown garden of Ivy Cottage and the constant attentions of her interfering sister Hilary.

Most of all it means Alex, Ivy Cottage's drop-dead gorgeous-tenant, with whom Hilary is determined Charlotte should find love anew, and whose charming exterior hides his own secret tragedy ...

3.0 out of 5 stars It lacks that little something 17 Oct 2006
Format:Paperback
I have read three Erica James books before I read this one, so thought I would have an easy and enjoyable read. While her other books - Garden of Delight, Love and Devotion, and The Holiday have all been page turners this lacked that little something. If you have read her other books and enjoyed them you may be disappointed with this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy and light read 4 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This was the first book I had read written by Erica James and found the story funny and light and an easy read. I read it within a day and although I wouldnt say its my favourite book I would reccomend it. It would be good for taking on a short break away it will be finished by the time you come back but wouldnt keep you from doing other things
