‘An enjoyable, heartfelt read.’ Closer Magazine
Amy Nicholson never expected to leave London for the Suffolk countryside…
… But she also never expected to be a 33-year-old widow, left alone with a young son. Fleeing her memories, she swaps her heels for wellies and embarks on a new rural life.
The big-hearted community of Nevermorewell welcome them with open arms. There's old Harry, offering pearls of advice (fuelled by whisky from his hip flask), Saffron, juggling motherhood with business (whilst searching for her lost libido), and Caroline, the scheming local vamp, who tramples over lives as easily as the allotments backing onto Amy's cottage.
But just when Amy thinks she's finally leaving the past behind, Ben Martin crashes into her life. Sexy and enigmatic, Ben is haunted by his own secrets. Will love blossom on the allotments? Or will it be once bitten, twice shy?
Take yourself to Pastures New this festive season and curl up with a creamy hot chocolate and this deliciously heartwarming novel. A gorgeous, feel-good love story to warm your heart, perfect for fans of Holly Martin’s The Gift of Happiness, Sarah Morgan’s A Wedding In December and Heidi Swain’s The Christmas Wish List.

About the author
Julia has always made up stories in her head, and until recently she thought everyone else did too. She grew up in London, one of eight children, including a twin sister. She married Dave, a dentist, in 1989, and they have four daughters. After the birth of the second, Julia went freelance and decided to try her hand at writing. Her current novel was inspired by the allotments which her garden backs on to.
