This series will reaffirm your faith in human kindness! Perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley, Holly Hepburn and Jo Thomas.

Welcome to Littlewood, a small town community with a big heart. Abbie has fled London and the humiliation of not being able to make rent after being made redundant. Louise, seriously unlucky in love, has thrown herself into her career at the local hospital. And Eszter, who has travelled from Hungary with her daughter Zoe, hopes to fulfill her husband’s dying wish… to reunite his family.
Can a little bit of kindness really change your life? Three very different women are about to find out…

Thank you to Simon and Schuster for my copy of this book via Netgalley.

Abbie has fled London after losing her job and not being able to pay her rent. Her sister Louise offers her a room in her house. The problem is that Abbie is used to the fast pace of London not the slow life of Littlewood. Also arriving in Littlewood is Eszter and her daughter Zoe. These women were very easy to connect with and I could see them easily being my friends if I met them.

I’m not going to go into anymore of the story as I want everyone to experience this for themselves.  I recently heard the term Up-Lit in relation to this book and its perfect. I read this book in between a lot of crime and psychological thrillers. It was exactly what I was craving. It was the perfect dose of happiness. I finished it feeling refreshed and smiley.

If you’re having a bad day or just an okay day grab yourself a copy of this book because it will no doubt lift your spirits and make you see that there is still good in this world.

I am eagerly looking forward to the rest of this series.
