The four Sutherland sisters have all had very different paths in life, but one secret and a slighty tense production of Jesus Christ Superstar are about to bring them all back together again…
When the news that pop-superstar Lexia Sutherland is returning to Westenbury, not everyone is thrilled by the news – including Lexia. There are too many memories she doesn’t need to face – or need re-surfacing.
Meanwhile, Juno Sutherland just wants a little peace and quiet. As the local village doctor, she’s got her priorities in order; kids, job, husband, tenacious pony, a role in the village musical… So when the sexy new locum turns up – and steals her office – the last thing she needed was to be hit with rising temperatures and an over-active imagination.
Will these sisters be able to uncover the past, deal with the future and put on the performance of a lifetime?
Return to Westenbury this spring and find out.

I’ve loved every book by Julie Houston, and relish having her name on my reading list; I have so looked forward to this one and it’s a total delight to visit Westenbury once more.
Juno Sutherland has more than enough on her plate; a part-time job as a local doctor keeps her very busy, and then there’s home, two children, her husband and a pony with a mind of it’s own to take care of – not to mention her broken family which has left her mother needy and her sisters estranged. So she could do without a new locum joining the practice and booting her out of her room . . .
Well, it didn’t take long for me to burst into laughter! The author’s golden touch shone through the pages mixing joy, fun, laughter and angst – seamlessly. In what seemed like no time at all I was totally invested in all these fabulous characters as they became almost real. I felt that Juno was a close friend who I got to know better and better as the story expanded to include all of her family and I was thrilled when a few of the locals popped up – especially those who has been the focus of previous novels. I love that, while each book is a stand-alone read, those who came before are never entirely forgotten. With her trademark warmth, compassion – and terrific humour – this author has created another winner. Superbly written and wonderfully entertaining, this is absolutely a five star novel!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley and to Vicky Joss for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
