Anna, a newly qualified interior designer, has decided it's time to put her money and her expertise where her mouth is and risk everything to buy a tiny but adorable cottage in desperate need of renovation.

Outside, the chocolate-box cottage is perfect, but inside, all is chaos. With a ladder for a staircase, no downstairs flooring, candles the only form of lighting, and a sleeping bag and camping mat for a bed, Anna soon wonders if she's bitten off more than she can chew.

Her neighbor Chloe comes to the rescue, providing tea, wine, and sympathy---and a recently rescued greyhound, Caroline. But just as Anna's starting to settle in, make new friends, and see the house transforming before her eyes, the good-looking yet impossible Rob Hunter arrives on the scene and puts even more obstacles in her way. Will Anna be able to get over all of life's hurdles in the end, or will she stumble and fall?

Adorable, sweet read. Likeable characters. Nice setting and interesting backdrop of the profession of interior design, shown as an under-appreciated occupation somewhere between architecture and interior decorating. I liked that older homes are fixed up and appreciated. I also loved the animal rescue angle, of greyhounds. Having read a few works by this author, one or two themes are similar, but this book takes you down a completely new path. Looking forward to more by this author!

I can't say enough good things about this author! I love her books, the characters, the way she writes (in "English" - she's British) and the story lines. Very cute and funny stories with happy endings! A wonderful frivilous book that keeps your attention and is a page turner. I highly recommend this book and all her others! I haven't read one I didn't like yet! I plan to read every one of her books!
