Welcome to Willoughby Close… a charming cluster of cozy cottages, each with a story to tell and a happy ending to deliver…
Ellie Matthews has come to Wychwood-on-Lea to find a new start for her and her daughter Abby. But, life there doesn’t start out as idyllic as she had hoped. While Ellie loves her cute cottage in Willoughby Close, the Yummy Mummies at the primary school seem intent on giving her the cold shoulder, Abby has trouble fitting in, and her boss, Oliver Venables, is both surprisingly sexy and irritatingly inscrutable.
But miracles can happen in the most unexpected places, and in small, yet wonderful ways. Slowly, Ellie and Abby find themselves making friends and experiencing the everyday magic of Willoughby Close. When Oliver’s nephew, Tobias, befriends Abby, the four of them start to feel like family… and Ellie begins to see the kindness and warmth beneath Oliver’s chilly exterior, which awakens both her longing and fear.
Ellie knows all about disappointment, and the pain of trying too hard for nothing, while Oliver has his own hurts and secrets to deal with. When the past comes rollicking back to remind both of them of their weaknesses and failings, will they be able to overcome their fears and find their own happy ending?
Discover the heartwarming magic of Willoughby Close… with four more stories of hope and happily-ever-afters to look forward to.

This is the second book in the Willoughby Close and I loved this one as much as the first. They are completely standalone stories so you needn't have read the first to enjoy this one. In this story Ellie Mathews and her daughter Abby have moved to Wychwood-on-Lea to start fresh. Ellie to finally break all ties with her ex and Abby to get away from the cruel kids at school. At first it doesn't seem like much has changed but slowly they both start to make friends and settle into the small community. Ellie is aware of the attraction between Oliver Venables and herself but for now he's her boss so she keeps things friends only. Really getting to know the slightly nerdy Oliver is wonderful. What will happen when she's no longer working for him??
These characters are fun and the story is very entertaining. I would definitely recommend this one.
