Coming Up Roses

Would-be gardening journalist Daisy can’t believe her luck when her parents announce they’re off on a midlife crisis gap year, leaving her in charge of their gorgeous garden, much in need of her expert TLC. And coming just after a break up, some peace and quiet in the countryside is just what she needs. Only, village life turns out to be anything but – with nosey neighbours and greedy developers instantly stirring up trouble.

What Daisy really needs is a good friend, or three. So when she comes across Elaine, Coral and Lauren, she’s relieved to have multiple shoulders to cry on. But each of the new friends is dealing with a drama of their own – a marriage in crisis, a family secret and juggling a hectic business.

As Daisy wrestles the garden into something like beautiful order, can she get a grip on her new feelings for handsome Irish rogue Garret and stop her parents selling up to a developer?
