Following heartbreak, Rosy has rebuilt her life in the beautiful Cornish village of Penmenna. Now headmistress of the local school, she is living by The Rule: no dating anyone in the village. Easy, right? But Rosy Winter has a new neighbour, handsome gardener Matt. In Penmenna for his new gardening TV show, this guy next door will do everything he can to persuade her to break her rule and win her heart. Meanwhile, Penmenna Village School is threatened with closure and it’s up to Rosy to rally the local community and #SaveOurSchool. Can she bring her worlds together and accept help from the most unlikely of sources?


This was a free book given away by Apple, and I read through it pretty quickly. It tells the tale of a young headteacher who battles her own demons to try and stop her school from being closed down, whilst at the same time falling in love with her next door neighbour. Of course that means lots of misunderstandings, twist and turns along the way, romantic dates and blazing rows, and all that good stuff.

The book is well written, a bit corny in places, but with good ideas and a nice cast of characters that are well-rounded and with mostly good intentions. There are follow up books in the series that I might look into but probably prioritise others first.

Rating: 3 / 5
