Synopsis

Country air, cowslips and a charismatic rogue . . .

Would-be gardener Daisy can't believe her luck when her parents announce they're off on a midlife-crisis gap year, leaving her in charge of their gorgeous garden. After a turbulent few months, a spell of quiet in the countryside is just what she needs.
A shoulder to cry on wouldn't go amiss either - so when Daisy comes across Elaine and Jo, she breathes a sigh of relief. But her new friends are dealing with dramas of their own . . .

As Daisy wrestles the garden into something resembling order, her feelings for handsome Irishman George, begin to take root. But Daisy's heart's desire - her parent's garden - is under threat, and she is forced to confront nosey neighbours and fight greedy developers. Village life is turning out to be far from peaceful.

'Original, atmospheric, intriguing, romantic and funny - I loved it!'

It's a gorgeous story - funny, touching and hugely warm-hearted. I actually cheered at the end!
Miranda Dickinson
Coming Up Roses is a delight of a book: gardening, friendship, warm believable characters and a wonderful romance to boot. What's not to love?
