An uplifting and moving story of Lois and Tom’s relocation from London to a surprisingly quirky, rural hamlet. Tom falls off his mountain bike just days before they take ownership of Honeysuckle Cottage; leaving a pregnant Lois and her close friend to collect the keys to their new home. Finding her dream house fraught with unexpected problems, Lois becomes sick with worry that she should never have persuaded Tom to leave the city. But, as they settle, glitches with the cottage are resolved, and a wonderfully eclectic mix of friends, enemies, crooks, and eccentrics is revealed within this extraordinary community.
Lois and Tom’s rapid series of major life events culminates in great excitement, with their wedding and the birth of the baby in very quick succession and a melodramatic twist, as uninvited guests arrive at the home delivery.

Born in Scotland, the youngest of four, Suzie spent the majority of her childhood living in Buckinghamshire. She trained as a nurse, later specialising in the care of older people. Having always thrived on meeting interesting and unusual individuals, Suzie has gained a wealthy mental portfolio of remarkable characters, particularly as a community nurse, who have helped to underpin her imaginative writing. She now lives in The Chilterns with her husband, three fast maturing children, two dogs, a cat, a horse and occasionally eight or so black Labrador puppies. Suzie has published two novels in The Pumpkin Allan Series, with a third on the way. Her enjoyment of the countryside, interest in human idiosyncrasies and love of humour has enabled her to paint a colourful picture of life in a rather special, rural English hamlet.
