Jason, Stock Exchange trader, is dismissed from his city job for misconduct. His wife, Libby, stands by him and they go back to his roots to help run his family’s B & B, his father having recently died. Libby has to make the best of a bad job. Her mother-in-law is highly critical, the B & B runs out of money and life is tough. She takes in a young woman, Alice, who has lost her memory after a car accident and had the address of the B & B in her pocket. Alice is an interesting character and obviously holds the answer to lots of the plot threads. How it all comes together is beautifully done and nicely unexpected. A good read. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

One Small Act of Kindness by Lucy Dillon

What can you do to make the world a better place? Libby helps a stranger, and transforms her life in the process. Libby and her husband Jason have moved back to his hometown to turn the family B&B into a boutique hotel. They have left London behind and all the memories - good and bad - that went with it. The injured woman Libby finds lying in the remote country road has lost her memory. She doesn't know why she came to be there, and no one seems to be looking for her. When Libby offers to take her in, this one small act of kindness sets in motion a chain of events that will change many people's lives ...
