Scandal hit party girl Lucy Conway needs to leave London fast, so she packs her bags and escapes to the sleepy village of Cranbridge to take care of her beloved Uncle Frank.

But the country village isn’t quite as idyllic as she remembers. To make matters worse, her Uncle’s pride and joy, The Cranbridge Times, is close to going out of business.

Editor-at-Large Tom Addison is having a crisis of confidence and needs help if the newspaper is going to survive.

With time on her hands, can Lucy work some magic and together save the family newspaper?
Over a long, hot summer, friendships are made and hearts begin to heal.

 And, with the help of a stray dog, perhaps Lucy and Tom can find their very own new beginning...

How lovely to be back in Cranbridge, with a whole new story.  It's such a lovely village setting, and I knew even before I started reading this one it would be a lovely gentle book, that would leave me smiling 

And that is exactly what happened, I had a calming day or two reading this story, was completely caught up with life in the village, and seeing just whether they would turn around the fortunes of The Cranbridge Times. 

I really enjoyed seeing the character development from both Lucy and Tom, but also Molly.  Molly was a fascinating side character and I really hope she is in line to get a book to herself in this series, as I would love to see her as a focal point.  Especially seeing her confidence growing as it is currently.

Actually I just loved all the characters, great to see what Dodgy Del is up to ,and there is a rather explosive scene involving him that is brilliant,  and Keith is wonderful too!  And I loved seeing Lucy making proper friends with Molly, Amber and Belle, as she hasn't really had friends in the past. 

It's just an all around lovely and charming book, and hit all the right spots for me.  A pleasure to read. 

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