Publisher's Summary

The delicious new novel from Sunday Times best-selling author Heidi Swain:

Fliss Brown has grown up living with her mother on the Rossi family’s Italian fruit farm. But when her mother dies, Fliss finds out she has a family of her own, and heads back to England with Nonna Rossi’s recipe for cherry and almond tart and a piece of advice: connect with your family before it is too late....

Fliss discovers that her estranged grandfather owns a fruit farm himself, on the outskirts of Wynbridge, and she arrives to find a farm that has fallen into disrepair. Using her knowledge gleaned from working on the Rossi farm and her desire to find out more about her past, Fliss rolls her sleeves up and gets stuck in. But what will she discover, and can she resurrect the farm’s glory days and find a taste of home?

Lovely cozy story

Even with the tears of loss, this is an uplifting story of moving forward with your life; finding new family and friends. Creating a new future. Strong, likable characters lead the story.

Wishy washy story!

The main character has the emotional maturity of a 14 year old, so naive and clueless. I wanted to enjoy it, but I was so irritated with fliss, I found it hard to finish.

Very enjoyable

Just love Heidi Swain's writing and Karen Cass's narration. All the characters are accessible and for the most part, likeable. I usually listen to my audibles as I fall asleep and this one is very gentle but intriguing enough to make me keep listening beyond when perhaps I should have fallen asleep!
Please keep 'em coming Heidi.....

a perfect summer read

I really love how all Heidi's books interact with each other, but equally can be read on their own and in any order. I always love Karen Cass as a reader, she has a beautiful voice which is very easy to listen to.

Really good

I really enjoyed this book, I did a mixture of ebook and audible, I liked the characters and although it was part of a series the other character weren’t pushed on the reader as filler, the book just didn’t need it and there was no over describing….. I love Heidis writing and look forward to the next one
