Ellie Summers' life is unravelling. Finding herself pregnant, and her sexy but idle boyfriend Rick less than enthusiastic about parenthood, she needs a plan. Fast. Grace Soudley's life is also coming apart at the seams, her only security is the beautiful yet crumbling old house she was left by her godmother. But unless she can find a fortune, Luckenham House will disintegrate around her.
When Ellie and Grace meet, the two very different women find they can help each other out. Ellie needs a place to stay; Grace needs a lodger. Both of them need a friend. But then the disconcertingly engaging Flynn Cormack arrives on the scene, apparently determined to help. And when Grace discovers some beautiful painted panels hidden behind the tattered dining-room curtains, the whole business of restoration starts to get serious.
