Learning to Love by Sheryl Browne
Sometimes help comes from the most unlikely places … Living in a small village like Hibberton, it’s expected that your neighbours help you in a time of need. But when Andrea Kelly’s house burns down, taking all her earthly possessions with it, it’s the distant and aloof Doctor David Adams – the person she would least expect – who opens his door not just to her, but to her three kids and slightly dotty elderly mother as well. Andrea needs all the help she can get, dealing with aftermath of the fire and in the suspicious absence of her husband, Jonathan. But, as she gets to know David and his troubled son, Jake, she begins to realise that maybe they need her help as much as she needs theirs …
This story has a lot to offer - mystery, crime, deceit, love, dotty elderly women... Ms Browne's novel kept me awake into the wee small hours - I simply had to finish it before I could go to sleep. The plotting is first class, with more than enough twists, turns, and layers to keep me guessing and on the edge of my seat.
Not as light-hearted as a typical chick lit (though it did have its moments) it still had all the necessary ingredients I'd expect, as well as tension and drama by the bucketful.
