Sweet, heartwarming, and delightfully charming!

Incredibly lovely story, that really does highlight how easy it could be to become hooked on watching strangers via webcam!

Ok it's not exactly as creepy as it sounds, well apart from the webcam that Esther finds that is focusing on a home, and being streamed online, she is guessing without the owner knowing. And its this handsome stranger on webcam that is far healthier for her to obsess over, than the other one she is watching of her ex-boyfriend who called from the airport to let her know he

This really lives up to its tag in being an uplifting and heartwarming romance - I loved reading it and can't recommend it highly enough.

Esther has a boring job, a boyfriend who dumps her by phone and then leaves the country and then she finds she can watch him at work via a webcam, chatting up the girls in the bar. She's now hooked on watching that web cam and others - especially one on a country cottage with a hunky male occupant . . . She never expected a blind date to end up with her going

With a stunningly dreamy cover, this was a story that captured my heart and had me tempted to start searching for cameras online to follow to see if the man of my dreams was out there!! If he is half as good as Kit in this story then I'd be a lucky woman!!

Esther is the focus of this story - her life is tripping along with very little excitement and she thinks she's in a happy relationship with Josh, but he drops a bombshell when he calls from the airport to say he's moving out to Spain to work

Esther’s relationship with Josh has never really been love’s young dream – he’s clearly a bit of a selfish git – but she could live with that, with the prospect of a white wedding and a happy ever after. She really wasn’t expecting to be dumped by a phone call from the airport as he heads off to work in a bar in Malaga.

Her life does rather lack excitement – her temp job at the bank is mind-numbingly boring, she doesn’t have much spare cash and has nothing to look forward to – and when she finds

What a blooming lovely story! I fell in love with this romantic comedy from the start, it was sweet and effervescent just like the wild blooms left to shine in a meadow. The Cottage on Wildflower Lane is the second book I've read by Liz Davies and the author has charmed and delighted me on both occasions.
Esther is heartbroken when she learns that her boyfriend of two years has dumped her and is off to work in a bar in Malaga. She is shocked by this sudden change of events so googles the bar and

Funny and emotional, this will make you take a second (or third) look at your own life and the people you meet. If I wasn't paranoid about porch cameras before this, you should be in my head now!

Esther is bored out of her mind at work but temp jobbing has been what she knows and does. To stay in one job for a long period of time would be so much worse, right? Until the day her oft traveling (without her) boyfriend calls her at work and tells her he is never coming back.

Fabulous read!

I really enjoyed a romance which starts after a webcam link mix up.
Esther was a great character and I connected with her straight away. She has a good sense of humour and as the book progresses I could see her as one of my friends. The sign of a good character is one who you are sad to see go at the end.
Reading the story from both Esther and Kit's perspectives was great. Both characters were really well developed and I enjoyed my time with them.
There were some really funny bits -

I was immediately drawn to this book by its gorgeous cover.
This is the story of Esther who is in a relationship with Josh. Then, Josh calls Esther from the airport, to tell her that their relationship is over as he is moving to Spain to work in a bar.

The book also tells the story of Kit, who is going through a divorce and all the stress that goes with that.

This book was easy to read and a page turner. The characters were well developed and easy to relate to.
The book was filled with humour and it

My Review:

This rather sweet story was slowly evolving, amusing, and chaste enough for my elderly mother’s book club. The main characters were gentle and likable people who were struggling with transitions and disappointments from betrayals by those they thought were most dear, but apparently, they were so very wrong. The storylines were rather predictable but with a few interesting webcam twists. I had never considered the implications of these hidden cameras and Ms. Davies now has
