And when her son Monty returns from his gap year Down Under it's only too clear what, or who, that trouble is. Then the plan to turn her crumbling home into a tea room hits a snag, the macrame at her sister's house starts to seriously unravel, and why is her doctor leaving so many messages? Enter Will, a mysterious handyman with a secret stash of chocolate truffles, and soon life --
with all its hiccups --
is just her cup of tea.
When Florence Darling's childhood sweetheart and husband, Harry, leaves her for another man, she doubts she will be able to survive the heartache. Only the thought of her son Monty returning from his gap year Down Under keeps her from death by chocolate cupcake. But when Monty emerges into the arrivals hall at Paddington Station, he is not alone. He is with a woman. An older woman. A woman he introduces as his wife, Crystal. Worse, bad things always happen in threes in Florence's family, so when her doctor leaves a message to ring him urgently, she knows it won't be about a miracle anti-ageing serum. On top of everything, she's lost her job and the plan to turn her crumbling London home into a tea room has hit a major snag. Could life get any worse? It could, or so she thinks, until mysterious handyman Will turns up. Before too long he proves to be just Florence's cup of tea and suddenly life - with all its hiccups - is only just beginning.
