Three isn’t always a magic number …
There are three reasons Tess Fenton should be happy. One, her job at the Blue Olive deli is dull, but at least she gets to work with her best friend. Two, she lives in a cosy cottage in the pretty village of Halston. Three, she’s in love with her boyfriend, Blake.
Because, despite their history, Blake continues to be the puzzle piece in Tess’s life that doesn’t quite fit. And when she meets intriguing local artist Daniel Cavanagh, it soon becomes apparent that, for Tess, love isn’t as easy as one, two, three …

Fantastic read once you start you can’t put this book down. I really enjoyed this book it was a heart warming romance with a twist of deceit. If you are a romantic you won’t be disappointed with this book.
Fab little read, encompassing a full range of emotions and situations, misunderstandings, and downright outrageous deceit. Following Tess on her at times painful journey from falling out of love to very much in it, while feeling hopelessly trapped by circumstances, was ultimately uplifting. The story has themes of yearning, responsibility, grief, guilt, recovery and coping, all tied together in a romantic plot which developed into a real page turner. Loved it.
A long series of misunderstandings and helpful friends bedevil the romance between Daniel and Tess! This is a sweet romance with a totally feel good factor, just the thing to lift your spirits at any time of year. Curl up in front of the fire or on the beach, just make sure you have a cup of tea and a supply of chocolate or biscuits to hand as you won’t want to leave the book till you reach the end. Enjoy it, I did!
Tess has everything going right for her. A job she loves, a home she loves, and a boyfriend she loves. Well, maybe. When Tess meets local artist, Daniel, her life begins to feel not quite as in order as she thought.
This was a great story with lots of twists and turns. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I think you will too!
An intriguing read with romance, deceit and deception
