When you open up your home and your heart …
Rowan Forrester has it all – the happy marriage, the adorable dog, the good friends, the promising business and even the dream home after she and her husband Tom win a stunning but slightly dilapidated Georgian townhouse in London at auction.
But in the blink of an eye, Rowan’s picture-perfect life comes crashing down around her and she is faced with the prospect of having to start again.
To make ends meet she begins a search for housemates, and in doing so opens the door to new friends and new beginnings. But could she be opening the door to new heartbreak too?

Sad, happy, love and friendship
A fabulous story encompassing loss, grief, friendship, mystery and peril. So well woven, I loved the exploration of close family and friend relationships over time and how they are affected by different events.
The mystery was well worked and added an extra dimension to the story, which kept me turning the pages to the end.
Wonderful story of a woman’s strength
Rowan could be the woman next door, a lovely person who does not deserve the tragedies she faces. However with the help of her sister in law and some new friends, she is able to overcome the challenges she faces. This is a great story with touches of humour, love and human insight. A story you can’t put down and with characters you really care about. Highly recommend- 5 stars!
5* A delightful read
I expected this to be a book I could dip in and out whenever spare moments occurred. I was so wrong. Magnolia House became compulsive reading for me. The characters were fun, the plot seemed gentle, until the author decided to shake up and shock me with heartbreak and loss for the heroine. I won't give more away about the plot, except to say this is a compelling read that I thoroughly recommend.
