I was excited to get the 20th Katie Fforde title to review. I really enjoy her books and this one was as good as the rest.
Bella is seemingly happily settled, sharing a house with her godmother Alice, she loves her job as an estate agent and is settled with her boyfriends Neville. Then in a bolt from the blue the past comes back to haunt her in the shape of Dominic, the man she had a crush on three years previously. Fforde also has a parallel love story with Alice and Michael a man she meets in a train. Bella has to deal with shifty characters, unearth a scam, find the perfect house for picky clients all the while juggling her feelings for both Neville and Dominic. Both women take stock of their lives and have to decide if they are just settling for what they have at the moment because it is easy and comfortable - what would happen if they decide they don't want to settle?
I have to admit I wish all estate agents were as nice and caring as Bella - finding your perfect home would be much easier!
This is a great read for the holidays and would be the perfect Mother's Day gift. Katie Fforde has done it again with a two likeable heroines, a story that feels like a glorious summer and even made estate agents (largely) likeable.
This book was given free by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
