"Howard introduces a substantial cast of characters with ease and successfully juggles the various narrative threads ...
This successful entry bodes well for the series." - Publisher's Weekly"Howard knits a cozy small-town setting with a cast of memorable characters, snappy dialogue, and occasionally dark undertones that keep the book from veering too far towards the saccharine ...
Fans of cozy settings, feel-good story lines, and a dash of romance will be eager to read whatever Howard has planned next for Havenbury's inhabitants." - Booklist"An enjoyable and aspirational romance - and who doesn't need some escapism these days?" - Sussex LifeMaddy fled the idyllic market town of Havenbury Magna three years ago, the scene of a traumatic incident she revisits most clearly in her dreams.
Even so, when she is called back to help at the Havenbury Arms when her godfather Patrick suffers a heart attack, she is unprepared for the welter of emotions her return provokes. Psychologist and ex-army officer Ben is sure he can help Maddy to resolve her fears, until he finds himself falling for her, and struggling with a recently uncovered family secret of which Maddy is blissfully unaware.
Then Maddy's mother, Helen, arrives and Patrick himself must confront a few uncomfortable truths about his history and the pub's future.
