Life slows down alarmingly from the moment Ruby Grant and Oliver move into Troy Cottage. Free at last from her two grown-up yet persistently dependent children, Ruby plans to start writing her novel – until her daughter, Poppy, turns up with boyfriend and dog in tow, announces she’s pregnant and moves into Ruby’s office. Then Josh needs somewhere to do his washing, and her father wants to stay... Despite this, Ruby finds village life surprisingly seductive, especially when she meets Hamish, the handsome journalist who is eager to help with her investigations for the parish magazine. There’s surely no harm in a little crush – but can Ruby avoid the hazards of country loving?
