This novella is part 3 of a 4 part series set around Anna as she comes to terms with splitting up with her fiancée just a year before her wedding. She moves to a new flat on the edge of a pretty and peaceful communal garden known as Wildflower Park, to be near her best friend Sophie.
At the end of Part 2 Sophie has moved in with Anna, having left useless husband Dave. Anna is a little alarmed by this turn of events and speaks to Dave to try and encourage him to change his ways. Dave invites Sophie round for dinner – the house is clean and tidy and they come up with a plan for him to do his fair share around the house and with the kids. Sophie moves back home and is much happier, preparing for the birth of child number 3.
Meanwhile, Anna is still seeing Connor (the mystery texter) although there doesn’t really seem to be a spark there. Hudson is still on the scene too and hatches a plan for them to go to New York together – Anna has always wanted to go and when a job opportunity comes up he thinks she will be perfect for it. Only trouble is, Anna has a phobia of heights and is scared of flying so is in two minds whether she should go for it.
This continues to be a warm and lovely series, perfect for fans of chick lit. I’m pretty sure I have guessed what will happen in Part 4 but I am looking forward to it all the same!
