Publisher's Summary

Fall in back in love with life in this gripping listen about fate and second chances. The eagerly awaited new novel from the Sunday Times best-selling author.
Thirty-year-old Izzy Sweetwell has a peaceful life. She lives in the sleepy village of Halfhidden with her aunt with her aunt Debo, who runs the local kennels, a home from home for waifs and strays in the area.
You couldn't say that Izzy's life is particularly exciting, but that's just how she likes it, she's bid farewell to a dramatic life since a terrible accident when she was a teenager and for now, she's perfectly content with her aunt and the dogs in Halfhidden.
So what happens when someone forces Izzy to fall in love with life again? Will her painful past stand in the way of her future happiness? Can you make an omlette without breaking a few eggs?

Light & enjoyable

One of those stories where the nice, pleasant folk are well delineated against the nasty, selfish people. Goodness brings the good personalities happiness & all is just & right in the world for them, in the end. Not for some therefore if the reader is after the complexities of the human psyche. But for me it was endearing escapism. 1 annoyance was Narrator's rendition of male voices which made all males sound like Neanderthal half wits; & although some readers might think this to be a truism of Men it was annoying to listen to. Narrator very good with female voices.
