My Review:

Thanks to HQ Digital and NetGalley, too
For my copy of this book, here’s my honest review:

What a fun read this proved to be
With lots of love for an ancient sycamore tree.
It has been there for 300 years or so
But hotel builders are determined it’ll go.

Fifteen years ago Felicity took a chance
And kissed Ryan, hoping for romance
He didn’t respond and away to London she ran
And has avoided seeing him again however she can.

Fighting their schemes are octogenarians and Ryan.
They’ve not many plans but they’re all really trying.
Felicity returns home with orders from her boss
Get rid of the protesters or your job will be your loss.

As memories of her home and its special place,
Fee finds meeting Ryan makes her heart race.
With dilemmas and lies, Fee has to decide just how
She can work for her boss and her home town now.

She loves the tree and what it stands for
But can she fight her boss without being shown the door?
How will her local friends react when they discover
Her original purpose, will their friendships recover?

It is a fun read, with plenty of dreams coming true
With a great plot, fab characters and laughter, too.
I thoroughly enjoyed this fantastic book
And hope you will, too, when you take a good look!


What do you do when ‘the one that got away’ now won’t go away? In fact, he’s so determined not to go away that he’s literally chained himself to a tree.

Fifteen years ago, Felicity Kerr threw caution to the wind and kissed her colleague Ryan Sullivan under the ancient wishing tree along the coast.

When Ryan failed to respond to her kiss, Felicity was mortified that she’d read his signals so horrendously wrong and left Lemmon Cove for good.

But now Felicity’s job brings her back to her hometown, and face to face with Ryan, who is leading a band of octogenarians rallying to save their beloved 300-year-old sycamore from being bulldozed by property developers.

The spark with Ryan is still there, but Felicity is guarding a secret and as much as she wants to join the protest by his side, she can’t help but hold back.

Will Felicity be able to mend her broken heart and find happiness with Ryan beside the sea?

An utterly hilarious and heart-warming romantic comedy about hope, second chances, and following your heart. Fans of Tilly Tennant, Milly Johnson and Heidi Swain will love this summer holiday of a book.
