Ok story, good characters and it shows that a love between a mother and daughter can last a lifetime and be great friends. This book was an easy read but not all that great I moved on to the next one in a hurry.

* 1/2 stars. A divorced young mother of a teenage daughter buys a barn near Oxford, England intending to open her own restaurant. Her ex-husband dies of a gun-shot wound in Singapore, their former home. Was it murder or suicide? An unknown daughter of said former husband arrives on the scene. Sounds like an intriguing scenario, but for me the book fell flat and was far too predictable in far too many ways. Cannot recommend.
