A vibrant, often humorous tale of life, love - and infidelity - from the bestselling author of PROMISES, PROMISES.

Hilary had always thought she'd lived a charmed life. With a caring husband, David, and two lively children, she took an active part in both family and village life. Then, one Monday morning, Hilary's world is turned upside down. She discovers that David is having an affair. How could he? How could he put at risk their children and everything they have built together over the years? The question is, what should Hilary do? Turn a blind eye, much as neighbour Cindy has done over her own husband's various dalliances? Confront him, as her outspoken new friend Georgia suggests? Or perhaps she should throw herself at attractive newcomer to the village Nick Bradshaw...

Whatever happens, it seems certain that for Hilary, life is never going to be quite the same again.

The Garden on Holly Street Part Three

Megan Attley
Authors:
Megan Attley

As summer sets in, things heat up for the residents of Willow Court in the final part of this heart-warming series. Ernie and Abby are left reeling after the shocking news about Arthur. Struggling to cope with everything that has happened, Abby turns to the beautiful and kind gardener, Jason. She knows they can't be together - it's too risky given the tragic pasts they both share - but she can't help feeling drawn to him, like he might be the answer to the most important question. After the news about Arthur, Ernie's father, Neil, is spending more time at home when he notices his boy retreating into himself. But this seems to go deeper than sadness for his (somewhat unlikely) friend - Ernie seems to have the weight of the world on his shoulders and he is behaving in a very un-Ernie-like way. But how can Neil help his son if they can't talk to each other? As the garden begins to bloom and take shape, the boundaries between neighbours fall away. They become bound to together by what they have built - but will Arthur survive? And how will his new family cope if he doesn't?Fans of Cathy Bramley, Holly Hepburn, Heidi Swain and Kirsty Greenwood will love The Garden on Holly Street.

A HELLISH RIDEBut as a raging wildfire starts to make its way towards them - reducing the towering trees to charred carcasses - their idyllic expedition becomes a desperate race for survival. And when a man suddenly appears, seemingly in a state of shock and claiming his wife has vanished, the fight against nature's destructive power becomes entangled with a much deadlier game of cat and mouse.Because the only thing more dangerous than a burning forest is a man's thirst for revenge...
