    5. This one really appealed to me when I saw it on the Romantic Novel of the Year longlist - lovely summery cover, love story, heroine in her 50s It's not a bad read at all, good central character, well drawn friendships, nice tingly love story of older lady re-finding first love. It starts a bit all over the place but builds into a good story with some real humour and sadness, and it struck several chords around love in middle age and living on your own. And she has a wonderful character cat calle [...]

    6. YawnThank heavens I grabbed this from the library and did not spend money on it. Basically it's chic lit aimed at a slightly older reader. Can love happen when you are a bit older? It did the job of filling a rainy afternoon, but I would not recommend this to anyone looking for a book with substance, or even a likable plot.

    7. Lovely, light reading. Nothing pretentious literaturesque, just a sensitive, warm coming of age story of desire and fulfilment. Very recognisable for 50-something women (like I am). Hoping more romantic novels by Dana will follow!Spent two lovely relaxed afternoon reading this in my quiet summer garden.
