Molly has moved from London to rural Herefordshire chasing the Good Life. Swapping the tube for horseback, she is living the country dream.
Except it was her late husbands dream, not hers.
Then a distant relative of her late husband kicks the bucket, leaving a London townhouse in her possession, and Molly dares to consider chucking it all in. Quitting the Good Life and going back to her good life.
But theres a problem. A rather tall, handsome problem. In the shape of a man already living in Mollys new house. And when a face appears from her past, Molly is more confused than ever.
Will Mollys London dream replace her muddy reality? Do any of the men in her life really have honorable intentions? And has she said goodbye to country life too soon?

No catches, no fine print just unadulterated book loving, with your favourite books saved to your own digital bookshelf. Masterfully told in typical Catherine Alliott fashion, Catherine once again delivers a belly full of laughter as Molly, the key protagonist, makes her life a whole load more complicated and messy, long after the unexpected death of her husband, as she gets caught up in too many relationships of the opposite sex all at one time and without ever really meaning to do so. All of it complicated by her existence in rural Herefordshire on a farm that she never wanted to run, her grown up children, some of which just haven't grown up and then what might otherwise be her saviour, inheriting a beautiful house in London that she never expected. Can Molly get her life in order before she loses everything? The funny, enthralling and heartwarming story of a woman who gets a second chance in life - but will she have the courage to take it? Molly has moved from London to rural Herefordshire chasing the Good Life. Swapping the tube for the saddle, she is living the country dream.
For a woman who is supposed to be extremely intelligent Molly behaved like a total moron. The more I read the more infuriating I found her behaviour. Did it never occur to her that it was her children who were the direct heirs and should have been consulted at the very least? And why did she never know what was the right thing to wear or to go? Did she never watch television, read a newspaper or at least do a quick google search? The funny, enthralling and heartwarming story of a woman who gets a second chance in life - but will she have the courage to take it? It has been a while since I last read a Catherine Alliott, which is something I do need to rectify, as I do tend to enjoy her books.
