She's brilliant. I love nothing better than to put my feet up and lose myself in one of her novels. Returning home to Ludlow from a year in South America after her mother's death, Jamie Wilding finds the utterly gorgeous Olivier whom she hasn't seen since she was fifteen and had a crush on him. Of course this isn't the only surprise in store for her and nothing is quiet in the Shropshire countryside. A must for your summer reading.

If you like Veronica Henry you might also like to read books by Carole Matthews, Erica James and Milly Johnson.

Synopsis

Wild Oats by Veronica Henry

Life in the bosom of the Wilding family has its ups and downs…

From the moment she arrives back to find a half-naked man in the kitchen, nothing about returning to the Shropshire village of Upper Faviell is quite what Jamie Wilding expected. For much has changed at Bucklebury Farm in the months sheâs been travelling the world since the death of her mother...

Her best friendâs wife has gone completely off the rails, her father is behaving like a love-sick teenager - and heâs about to sell off the farm.

Whatâs worse, the shark threatening to take away Jamieâs family home is the man who made off with her heart twelve years ago.

To defend her legacy and have a chance to discover the true love she craves, Jamie will have to confront a long-running family feud, her father, and her own past.

And sheâll have to answer the question: is home always where the heart is?
