When jilted crime writer August Saunders returns from London to her roots in rural Wiltshire, she feels lost and lacking in inspiration. Determined to reignite her writing mojo, she responds to an advert for a shared workspace in a converted barn.

At the Hub, with its ill-equipped gym, inedible catering and motley array of fellow users, including a matchmaker more interested in her own conquests and a TikToker with a dodgy nocturnal sideline, August is confronted with a real-life mystery to solve.

Why is Max Ronson, the handsome but volatile owner of the Hub, so evasive about his past? And who or what is he hiding on the premises? She is determined to find out – but will her curiosity snuff out the spark of romance?

Nicola May mixes mischief with mystery in a fast-paced rural romp which will make Futtingbrook Farm as beloved a location as Ferry Lane Market or Cockleberry Bay.

Perfect for fans of Beth O’Leary, Sarah Morgan, Jill Mansell and Cathy Bramley.

My Review

This was such an easy read.  There is a great cast of relatable and quirky characters and a feeling of community.  A mystery, a little romance and a lot of humor along with a few weighty issues make this one well rounded.  I’ve been working from home for more than 10 years now and could relate to August’s situation.  I’m so glad I stumbled upon this tour and read this one.  I will have to look up her other books as this was a perfect summer read for me.

If you like wacky characters with flaws, then you’ll love this lovable group.
