It's not as if Nel hadn't enough on her plate already: organising a farmer's market in the beautiful Paradise Meadows and sorting out a house full of animals is quite enough to keep her busy.
But then her old friend Sir Gerald dies. Soon afterwards his son, accompanied by his glamorous but eccentric American wife, takes up residence in the big house.
Distressingly, it seems that preserving the meadow's way of life is not on their list of priorities. Nel takes up arms, determined to fight for the meadow and the market she loves. But whom can she trust?
She's pretty sure her friends Sacha and Vivian are on her side. Her sensible boyfriend Simon, a real estate agent, seems to want to help, but something tells Nel there's a conflict of interests.
But then there's Jake, the infuriating yet attractive stranger who kissed her under the mistletoe. Maybe she's been a celibate widow for far too long...
