This is the story of Caddock, the retired rugby player, and Francis, the interior designer, and how they get together. This is a sweet romance, guaranteed to give you the warm fuzzies whilst you read it. Filled with heart-warming characters of both human and canine varieties, you will travel to antiques fairs and pubs in Cornwall.

Well-written and smoothly paced, this was a slow burner of a romance, although the attraction was instantaneous. Caddock and Francis are most definitely a case of opposites attracting and definitely complementing each other.

Another winner from Dahlia Donovan, and definitely recommended by me.
