Blurb; Ruth the librarian fears she’s too old to find love, but a discussion about Lady Chatterley’s Lover makes her think again.
Aurora doesn’t feel seventy-two and longs to relive the excitement of her youth, while Verity is getting increasingly tired of her husband Mark’s grumpiness and wonders if their son’s imminent flight from the nest might be just the moment for her to fly too. And Danielle is fed up with her cheating husband. Surely life has more in store for her than to settle for second best?
The glue that holds Combe Pomeroy together is Jeannie. Doyenne of the local cider farm and heartbeat of her family and community, no one has noticed that Jeannie needs some looking after too. Has the moment for her to retire finally arrived, and if so, what does her future hold?
From a book club French exchange trip, to many celebrations at the farm, this is the year that everything changes, that lifelong friendships are tested, and for some of the women, they finally get the love they deserve.
My Review; I love this author so ofcourse I had to read this one. It is set in a small town where all the characters are familiar with each other and it seems the heart of the town is at the local cider farm. This book has everything and contains the message that age is just a number and you’re never too old for love. I loved all the characters, the cider farm and especially the old dear Violet is a favourite of mine and I loved all her jokes. A beautiful ending for all the characters. Many different romances to explore throughout the story. It just felt like a warm, cosy and uplifting read. A home away from home. I enjoyed their bookclub meetings or should I say debates? I Would highly recommend. A well deserved four out of five stars.
