About the Book:
When bestselling romance author Chloe Piper’s marriage implodes a week before Christmas, she flees her cheating ex and the village gossips for the solitude of the newly built Sunny Meadow Farm and the company of her hapless dog, Ronnie. But Chloe is soon pushed out of her comfort zone. Because with a lively development building crew – headed up by charming Alex – and a larger-than-life neighbour determined to make Chloe’s love life her pet project, Chloe finds herself in a whole new world of chaos.

I enjoyed this book, but I'm very confused by the tag line "romantic comedy". I didn't find it to be that funny really (unless you count dog farts as funny). It is a great story of second chances, and one of love lost and gained, of failure and success. It's also about relationships and friendships. It's a wonderful story that follows a woman after her divorce; on her journey to her ever after. Chloe is devastated by her husbands cheating, and they start divorce proceedings, she also suffers from a debilitating social anxiety disorder. She perseveres and I love that it shows mental illness in the proper light...but the book was just not all that funny.

The story-line was interesting and the writing and character development was very good, I was invested in them. It's a great story many could relate to. I loved the setting and reading about Chloe overcoming life's hurdles. This is an interesting and touching read and the writing flows without being pretentious. I really enjoyed Carol Wyer's writing style and I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.

Thank you NetGalley, Canelo Escape and Carol Wyer for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
