‘The Start of Something’ by Miranda Dickinson

Lachlan is at home, recuperating from a car accident that cut his Army career short. Beth Gwynne is his new neighbour, a single mum to Noah, struggling to make a new life far from her native Wales. When Lachlan notices some bright flowers in a window, he reaches out and writes a message.

This is such a sweet story, some likeable characters navigating a path to romance that isn’t exactly smooth. There is a dramatic subplot regarding Lachlan’s accident and Beth’s job at the local nursery, which saves it from being too soppy and lends a more realistic tone to the narrative.

Many thanks to NetGalley for the advance audiobook, brilliantly read by Simon Pothecary and Claire Morgan at Harper Collins Audio.
