It's a very simple story, there's no page turning mystery carrying you through the book, but it's so enjoyable because it's so simple. This book really does just take you into Nell's world with her as she attempts to start up her dream business whilst juggling family life, friends and finances.
Despite having no money Nell really does seem to have the perfect life; this being a wonderful daughter and a loving husband. Much like 'The Only Way Is Up' (a Carole Matthews favourite of mine) Carole is brilliant at reminding us that family and friends are the important things in life, and if you're lucky enough to have money too well then that's just a bonus.
This is a heartwarming story that is very easy to read. Perfect for holidays and sitting in the sunshine.
