Who says you can’t choose your family?
When Flora falls in love with Jack, suddenly she’s not only handling a very cranky teenager, but she’s also living in the shadow of Jack’s perfect, immortalised wife, Becca. Every summer, Becca and Jack would holiday with Becca’s oldest friends and Jack wants to continue the tradition, so now Flora must face a summer trying to live up to Becca’s memory, with not only Jack’s daughter looking on, but with Becca’s best friends judging her every move…
The more Flora tries to impress everyone, the more things go horribly wrong…but as the summer unfolds, Flora begins pushing her own boundaries, and finding herself in a way that she never thought she needed to.
And she soon learns that families come in all shapes and sizes.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Few romantic fiction authors give us feel-good stories and nicely complex female leads like Sarah Morgan. Here, we’re treated to Flora, a young independent woman working in a New York flower shop who suddenly meets Jack—tragically widowed and the father of two proud, feisty daughters. As Flora and Jack start to navigate what can only be a challenging and complicated relationship, Flora accompanies Jack and his children on their annual trip to the Lake District. In the foothills of the idyllic British countryside, between summer barbecues and swims in the river, Flora grows to learn the importance of family in all its numerous and diverse forms.

I did enjoy this book. But found the romance was the secondary story.
Emotional and Moving
I always love Ms Morgan’s stories and this one was no exception. Fitting into a ready made family is never easy but when said family have dark secrets it is even harder. Fabulous story with fabulous characters. Highly recommended.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
