The Gardens of Delight brochure promises the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful and enchanting gardens in the Lake Como area of Italy.

For Lucy Gray, assistant manager at Meadowlands Garden Centre, the chance to go to Italy offers more than just gardens. Lake Como is where her father lives, and the last time she saw him was when she was just a teenager.

Recently married Helen Madison-Tyler and her wealthy husband have just moved into the Old Rectory. With her husband spending so much time away from home, Helen throws herself into caring for the garden that was the pride and joy of its previous owner, a renowned gardening expert, Alice Wykeham. But Helen needs help, and friends, and so decides to take the plunge and join the local Garden Club.

Conrad Truman isn't the least bit interested in gardening. Widowed for five years, his life revolves around work and humouring Mac, his curmudgeonly elderly uncle who lives with him, and who has expressed a desire to go on the Gardens of Delight tour. But only if Conrad will accompany him. Reluctantly, Conrad agrees. 'Anything for a peaceful life,' he concedes.

But a peaceful life is the last thing any of them are in for...

Nice story, not predictable, even until the end. Well, some parts are, but it's still really nice to read! It costed me some pages to really feel the story, but after 75 pages or so, you want to keep on reading!
