When Lewis Harley has a health scare in his early forties, he takes it as a wake-up call. So he and his wife Charlotte leave behind life in the fast lane and Lewis opens the antique shop he has dreamed of. Bonnie Brookland was brought up in the antiques trade and now works for the man who bought out her father’s business, but she isn’t happy there. So when she walks into Lew’s shop, she knows this is the place for her.
As Bonnie and Lew start to work together, they soon realise that there is more to their relationship than either thought. But Bonnie is trapped in an unhappy marriage, and Lew and Charlotte have more problems than they care to admit. Each has secrets in their past which are about to be uncovered. Can they find the happiness they both deserve?
I was so happy to finally get my hands on this book not just because I love reading Milly Johnson’s books but because I am incredibly lucky to be on the back of this book. I was over the moon. I really loved this book and I have to say I think this is Milly’s best one yet. It was lovely to see the antique dealers all coming together for each other and some of their nicknames were pretty funny. The story is set in the same location as The Teashop on the Corner so it gave the story a bit of familiarity. There is sadness in the book and I did really feel sorry for Lewis, but I loved Bonnie and how strong willed she is and how she fought to change her life. If I was ever in her situation I would love to be as strong as her. Brilliantly written story, one I will not forget.
