Publisher's Summary

When retired actor Buffy decides to up sticks from London and move to rural Wales, he has no idea what he is letting himself in for. In possession of a run-down B&B that leans more towards the shabby than the chic and is miles from nowhere, he realises he needs to fill the beds - and fast.
Enter a motley collection of guests: Harold, whose wife has run off with a younger woman; Amy, who’s been unexpectedly dumped by her (not-so) weedy boyfriend; and Andy, the hypochondriac postman whose girlfriend is much too much for him to handle.
But under Buffy’s watchful eye, this disparate group of strangers find they have more in common than perhaps they first thought.

Patience is a virtue

The story is a little slow in the beginning. If you stick with it you will definitely be rewarded!

For Fans of Soap Opera

This is how I think this book was written:

Write up 20 characters with back stories (column A). Choose 5 of them to be main characters. Write up back stories for 10 spouses (column B). Write up 10 reasons for splitting up (column C). Write up 10 ways to meet a new love interest (column D). Write a central character, back story, and 'change of life' to move him into a central (plot) location.

Select the 5 main characters, randomly select their old spouse from column B, randomly select splitting up from column C and then select new partner from column D. Choose one of the 5 to be the new partner for hero.

Now create a scenario that manages to get said characters into some pivotal point where the main character connects with his new partner.

Sprinkle in some details, crisis, and self-doubt. Bake at 350, frost and consume.

PS. I quit reading when it looked like there was a happy ending but still a chapter to go. I don't want to know if it was going to 'get real' and introduce some new bitter-sweet disaster.
