She’s taking her life back, one step at a time…

Grace thought she had it all. Living in the beautiful village of Little Ollington, along with head teacher husband Mark and gorgeous son, Archie, she devoted herself to being the perfect mum and the perfect wife, her little family giving her everything she ever wanted.

Until that fateful day when she walked in on Mark kissing his secretary - and her perfect life fell apart.

Now she's a single mum to Archie, trying to find her way in life and keep things together for his sake. Saturday nights consist of a Chinese takeaway eaten in front of the TV clad in greying pyjamas, and she can’t remember the last time she had a kiss from anyone aside from her dog, Becks. 

Grace’s life needs a shake up – fast. So when gorgeous gardener Vinnie turns up, his twinkling eyes suggesting that he might be interested in more than just her conifers, she might just have found the answer to her prayers. But as Grace falls deeper for Vinnie, ten-year-old Archie fears that his mum finding love means she’ll never reconcile with the dad he loves.

So when ex-husband Mark begs her for another chance, telling her he’s changed from the man that broke her heart, Grace finds herself with an impossible dilemma. Should she take back Mark and reunite the family that Archie loves? Or risk it all for a new chance of happiness? 

A funny, feel good romance about finding your own path and changing your life – readers of Cathy Bramley, Jill Mansell and Josie Silver will love this uplifting read.

It isn't often that a rom-com is written so beautifully that I am on the verge of tears by the end of it.  Happy tears that is, but due to certain circumstances in the book I was so connected to Grace's story that I read feeling everything she did. 

Grace truly is an amazing woman,  single mum to Archie,  has a nightmare of an ex, gorgeous dog,  Becks, is up for a local award but has almost no self confidence at the start of the book. 

Her best friend,  Monika, is determined to do something about it, and add a result there is a makeover and some hilarious but disastrous online dates. 

Archie is a star of the book,  and at times he is wise beyond his years. 

Grace's mum is also a big part of the story,  and written in a way that I was unsure of at first but grew to love.

I can't believe that this is a debut novel..Kim Nash had written an accomplished debut that knocked my socks off! It is simply fabulous. 

I adored reading this story and just hope i don't have to wait too long for the next one. 

Thank you to Hera Books for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
