Summary: Grace Palmer's British friends all think she's living the American Dream. But her design business is floundering and when she discovers her husband is cheating with her best client, she panics and flees home to England.
The tranquil village of Saffron Sweeting appears to be a good place for Grace to lick her wounds, but the community is battling its own changes. Reluctantly, Grace finds herself helping her new neighbours as they struggle to adjust and save their businesses. However, not everyone has the same opinion on what's good for the village. The charismatic new man in her life may have one speculative eye on Grace, but the other is firmly on profit. How will she navigate the tricky path between her home and her happiness?
With gentle humour and generous helpings of British tea and cake, Saving Saffron Sweeting explores one woman's need to define herself through her career and community, before she can figure out who should be by her side.
Review: I received this novel from the author, in exchange for my honest opinion, and I loved it! The novel is about Grace Palmer, our main character, who is a Brit, living in the states, chasing the American dream, or at least she was until she discovered her husband cheating on her with her only client! When she finds this shocking discovery, she flees back to her home, ending up in a small village names Saffron Sweeting. During her stay in Saffron Sweeting, she learns that the town could us her help. I enjoyed this novel immensely, and I really liked Grace's character!
