If you're a fan of UK women's magazine fiction, which I've been all my adult life, you'll really enjoy this collection by the top names in the genre. Kelly Florentia's lovely story about a girl making the right decision about the man she met on holiday is especially delightful, but everything in this anthology is a joy. Funny, heart-warming, sad (but in a good way), life-affirming and laugh-out-loud, there's something here for everyone.
After reading Sue Houghton's story, I'm treating my own washing machine with great respect! Why? You'll have to read the book if you want to find out. This volume is raising funds for breast cancer research, so buying it will help a very worthy cause.
