Perfect for fans of Beth O'Leary and Paige Toon.
One forgotten discovery will change three women’s lives for ever…Robin hasn’t been home for decades. After running away to London, she never expected to see her cantankerous mother, Faye, again. But when Faye has a fall, the two women are thrown together once more.
The years apart have not made their hearts grow fonder and the ground between them is unsteady. Then Robin finds an unopened scroll – the last of the treasure hunts her much-missed father used to take them on every Sunday. A hunt he believed might change everything.
Yet, not even this gift from her beloved father can smooth the way until Robin’s daughter, Amber, arrives to meet her grandmother for the first time. Amber is determined that the decades-old mystery be solved.
Can a 30-year-old treasure hunt really 'change everything'?

Thank you to Rachel for letting me take part in this tour and to Boldwood Books for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I have read quite a few of Samantha’s books over the years and I really enjoy her writing style.

This book has 3 main characters: Robin, her mum Faye and her daughter Amber. Each of the women are very different but do have a lot in common. There’s a lot of past tension here and it’s easy to fall into old habits. I did feel for Robin being stuck in the middle. She just couldn’t seem to get things right despite trying so hard.

Hoover was my favourite character. I have a Frenchie too and they are the most adorable little dogs. They are so loving and playful.
This story is about seeing each other’s points of view. Sometimes we get very focused on our feelings and our POV but by taking a step back you can understand why other people are acting as they are.

It is a heart-warming, feel good read that you will want to devour.

About Samantha Tonge

Samantha lives in Cheshire with her lovely family and two cats who think they are dogs. Along with writing, her days are spent cycling, willing cakes to rise and avoiding housework. A love of fiction developed as a child, when she was known for reading Enid Blyton books in the bath. A desire to write bubbled away in the background whilst she pursued other careers, including a fun stint working at Disneyland Paris. Formally trained as a linguist, Samantha now likes nothing more than holing herself up in the spare room, in front of the keyboard. Writing romantic comedy novels and short stories for women’s magazines is her passion. Her bestselling debut novel, “Doubting Abbey”, from CarinaUK Harlequin, was shortlisted for the Festival of Romantic Fiction best Ebook award in 2014. Its fun standalone sequel is From Paris with Love. Mistletoe Mansion is a fun Christmas novel. Her fourth romantic comedy, Game of Scones, won the Love Stories Awards 2015 Best Romantic Ebook category. Her festive novel, My Big Fat Christmas Wedding is out now!
