This is another excellent book by Trisha Ashley.
On the surface Fran is happy married, she has a beautiful daughter Rosie, close friends and a job that she loves, illustrating roses. But, even from the outset it is easy to tell that Fran's husband is not the man for her. She makes excuses for him, doesn't question his absences and kids herself that things are OK in her marriage, even though she misses the lack of intimacy and affection of late.
Fran has kept the name of her daughter's father a secret; most assume that it was her long time boyfriend from her college days. But, Fran remembers Adam, a gardener, with whom she had a drunken, but very memorable, one night stand many years ago.
Adam has since become a famous TV gardener and author who takes on huge garden restoration projects which are then shown on television. His latest project brings him back into contact with Fran, threatening to turn her carefully orchestrated life upside down.
The next door neighbours' antics are creepy and it was great to see them get their come uppance - something that I wish had happened to Fran's husband - he got away with his appalling behaviour far too lightly.
This isn't your usual chick lit; it is warm, funny, light hearted, well written and with likeable characters. I absolutely loved it and just could not put it down for more than a few minutes at a time.
