Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Three years on from a rather messy divorce Jenny does a spot of house-sitting to supplement her proof-reading income. She is off to the country for two weeks to look after a beautiful house and an unruly dog. The gardener appears to be an odd character and indeed turns out to be not what he seems. Jenny gets confused and then delightfully involved, in more ways than one! Fast moving, highly entertaining and deliciously amusing, this is a lovely, relaxing read.

Synopsis

The Woman Who Fell in Love for a Week by Fiona Walker

Jenny loves to house-sit, looking after a stranger's enviably perfect home and pretending to be someone else - just for a bit. Her latest booking is a beautiful, disheveled old rectory in the Home Counties owned by the uber-successful Lewis family. Freed of teaching duties for the summer, and her own teenagers spending time with her objectionable ex, Jenny readies herself for a life of walk-in larders and sparkling water taps. Battling to control the riotous family dog and stay cool in an unrelenting heat-wave, she discovers skeletons in the Lewis closet that further threaten to disrupt her idyll. But then a seductive new friendship offers her a surprise second chance: to open herself up to love again and to finally live life on her own terms. Laugh-out-loud funny, touching and romantic, this is the new summer novel from the much-loved Fiona Walker

Reviews
