You’re never too old to fall in love…
There is a disturbance in the force and octogenarian Hattie Jenkins can feel it in her water. Still active and spritely, she guesses that the miserable-looking gentleman sitting morosely in the café where she works, might be the reason.
Widowed Alfred Miller has recently moved in with his daughter because she is worried that he’s becoming too frail and forgetful to look after himself. And he’s not in the least bit happy about it, especially since his home is soon be cleared and sold.
But when he enlists Hattie’s help to save some of his precious belongings, he doesn’t realise that Hattie’s mission is to save more than a few sticks of furniture. She’s on a mission to save him, too.
I loved this story!
The plot was lovely, it was well developed and it left me with a warm and cosy feeling inside. The book has a lovely natural flow to it and I did lose track of time reading it too – it was a lovely way to escape from the news and pressures of work and actually helped me get back on track with more “me” time.
I thought that the characters were great, I loved Hattie and her busy-body ways and Alfred was lovely and I just wanted to give him a big hug, he has been through a lot and is not doing so much for others – it is a genuine feel-good story.
The setting for the book is wonderful too and I loved the sense of community and the friendships build up in the book, I liked seeing the mix of old and young too and how they developed.
It is 4.5 stars from me for this one, rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – a lovely story with a fabulously festive cover too – very highly recommended!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Liz Davies writes feel-good, light-hearted stories with a hefty dose of romance, a smattering of humour, and a great deal of love.
She’s married to her best friend, has one grown-up daughter, and when she isn’t scribbling away in the notepad she carries with her everywhere (just in case inspiration strikes), you’ll find her searching for that perfect pair of shoes. She loves to cook but isn’t very good at it, and loves to eat – she’s much better at that! Liz also enjoys walking (preferably on the flat), cycling (also on the flat), and lots of sitting around in the garden on warm, sunny days.
She currently lives with her family in Wales, but would ideally love to buy a camper van and travel the world in it.
