Description

Rough sleeper Olivia lands on her feet when kind-hearted Mavis rescues her from life in a supermarket car park, and takes her back to the co-housing development where she lives.

Olivia finds a generous and supportive group of people there, all with their own stories and problems – though none quite as potentially explosive as hers.

What led her to a life on the streets when her background is so obviously out of step with the lifestyle she adopted for herself? How long before the past and the people in it catch up with her?

What an enjoyable book. It reminded me of books I have read by Rosamund Pilcher and Maeve Binchy. The style was similar in that the characters lived in close proximity and you learned something about all of the various people. It made me think “what a neat place to live.” Then it surprised me by throwing a mystery into the story. This book had it all! Definitely a book that I will be recommending to everyone. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
