Publisher's Summary

Nobody would ever describe Scarlet Williams as a ray of sunshine, but that doesn’t mean she deserves the flood that wipes out her basement flat, making her temporarily homeless. Enter Joy Hudson, local mayor & sunshine specialist, who opens her house to flood refugees and ends up with Scarlet on her doorstep. Two more opposing characters you couldn’t fail to meet, and yet, somehow, they strike up a friendship. But when the rain stops and the sun comes out, could that friendship blossom into something more?

Throughly enjoyed this audio book by Clare Lyndon.

Where do I start!
Although a little slow to start, once the two main characters meet, Scarlet and Joy, things soon became clear that this book was indeed a worthy listen.
I found it very wholesome, is that the word?
The characters, normal down to earth people. Refreshing that you don’t have to be CEO of a huge company and be dripping with wealth.
The British humour also was a very welcome touch, the banter between the two main characters brought a smile to my face more than once.
The love scenes were breathtaking, Gabrielle Baker truly bringing the characters to life.
The story also reflected part of my own life having only come out in my forties. Knowing that feeling of being true to oneself and having no option but to change course, with consequences that you know are going to hurt people you love. The feeling of excitement but also the very daunting life changing passage one has to take to become who you really are.
Also my ex is called Steve and like Joy we are
good friends.
Ok, rambling over.
Listen to this book, it’s a bloody good story, you won’t be disappointed.

A beautiful story from the amazing Clare Lydon!

When the town floods and Scarlett's flat is deluged by water she ends up homeless and in despair. Life hasn't been great for her for a while but this is the final straw. She ends up living in the house of the local mayor Joy, a closeted lesbian, while her home gets dried out. Their attraction is powerful and being together brings huge changes to both of their lives. Can they ever be more than friends? Will love win out?
Clare Lydon writes the most beautiful love stories, filled with humour, wit and romance. She is also the most skilled creator of the hottest sex scenes imaginable. One in particular is epic and hearing it read out in the sultry tones of Gabrielle Baker made it even better. This was a tale of hope and the realisation that sometimes what appears to be the worst day of your life might turn out to be the best. I adored this audio book and highly recommend it.
