Property developer Chrissie Collins has a plan:
to renovate Yew Tree House on Lovelace Lane, sell up, and move onto her next project. But even the best laid plans do not always run smoothly. With the house seemingly having ideas of its own, her sexy teenage house guest causing all kinds of mischief, and a geeky birdwatcher making a rare find, will Chrissie ever finish the renovation? Or will she realise it’s not only the property that requires some TLC?
Fabulous, Lighthearted, Feel Good Read!
This is such a fabulous, lighthearted and feel good series that I was delighted to return to Lovelace Lane for the latest tale. I marvel that each story is so different, and yet they all fuse together beautifully. I still have the first ones to read, but unlike some series it won’t matter which order I get to them – and get to them I will .. watch this space!
Chrissie is divorced and gratifyingly – yes it is possible – on good terms with her ex and his new wife. But while he has moved on with his life she has put all her energies into her property business, and is a dab hand at the manual labour. Chrissie is a woman I greatly admire – have you guessed?
In between knocking down walls and picking up kids, she also has to cope with their ‘cultural exchange’ student who is a worldly wise Brazilian teenager, and therefore a bit of a nightmare. When she does find her heart stirring for a certain man, isn’t it just like the thing that he has a girlfriend – and not only that, but she is gorgeous, eloquent and funny. Hard to compete with in anyone’s book, but especially for a woman who lives in jeans and workgloves . . .
As always, this is a well-written and very appealing story and I just love this author’s work. I never cease to be amazed at how writers come up with all their ideas as I’m not creative – well, not in the writing department anyway! If you’re in the mood for something to put a smile on your face, then this is one for you.
My grateful thanks to the author for the opportunity to read and review this novella. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.

About the Author
Alice Ross used to work in the financial services industry where she wrote riveting, enthralling brochures about pensions and ISAs that everyone read avidly and no one ever put straight into the bin.
One day, when nobody was looking, she managed to escape. Dragging her personal chef (aka her husband) along with her, she headed to Spain, where she began writing witty, sexy, romps designed to amuse slightly more than pension brochures.
Missing Blighty (including the weather – but don’t tell anyone), she returned five years later and now works part-time in the tourism industry.
When not writing, she can be found scratching out a tune on her violin, walking her dog in wellies two sizes too big (don’t ask!), or standing on her head in a yoga pose.
Alice loves to hear from her readers. You can get in touch with her via Twitter @aliceross22
