Nice Girls Do

by Sarah Duncan

Nice Girls Do Synopsis

Anna can cope with gardens, especially the historic ones it's her job to research, but when it comes to love and relationships she has lost her way, following the collapse of her short-lived marriage. Then she meets Oliver, destined to inherit a magical eighteenth-century house and garden from his ageing grandmother, and a man who, unlike her, is more interested in the future than the past. But is Oliver's interest in Anna entirely straightforward, or does he have a secret agenda? Will, the gardener, claims he has, but then Will has secrets of his own, and a past as mysterious as the garden he looks after. As Anna gradually deciphers the secret history of the garden, she realises that only by learning to read the messages will she find a way through the wilderness to the hidden heart at the centre, and discover where her own future happiness lies.

Nice Girls Do Press Reviews

'A classier offering than your usual chick lit - perfect if you like your romance served with a dash of history and horticulture' -- Daily Mail 20061020 'A romantic and highly enjoyable read' -- Closer 20061021 'This is a light but cleverly plotted read, with a great 'will they, won't they?' love story at its heart - though you're not quite sure which guy's the right one to root for. And for those with literary tastes, there's lots of symbolism to add a deeper level of interest' -- Glamour 20061021 'A romantic and highly enjoyable read about the need to love' -- Closer 20061021 'There's more than a hint of early Jilly Cooper about Sarah Duncan's second novel, so maybe it's no surprise to learn she spent part of her teenage years babysitting Cooper's children. It's a classier offering than your usual chick lit - perfect if you like your romance served with a dash of history and horticulture' -- Daily Mail 20061021
