This was book 2 in the series, but that didn’t disrupt my reading. I got the basic gist of book 1 and did not feel that the characters were strangers to me.
Janet Hoggarth did a fabulous job in endearing the characters to me. Ali and Grace knew it was time to make a new start and decided to move to the gated community known as The Mews with eclectic quirky characters. The neighbors were cute but so damn nosy.. I wouldn’t be able to stay in such a place.
Both Ali and Grace were etched beautifully by the author, I could connect with them. Each one was interesting in their own way. The Mews had a lot of drama happening everyday, but it also forged strong friendships. Janet had made them appear real.
Emotions of love, laughter, happiness seeped through the story. There was warmth in their relationships, romance had its own sweet spot. A light fun easy-breezy read was this book.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher Ai, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

After her fiancé left her, Ali and her daughter Grace enjoyed living in what became known as ‘the Single Mums’ Mansion’. However, with her best friends Amanda and Jacqui moving on, it’s time for Ali and Grace to make their own way. Thankfully, a chance conversation leads to them moving into the infamous South London gated community known only as The Mews.
In The Mews everyone lives in each other’s pockets and curtain twitching is an Olympic sport. The neighbours are an eclectic bunch – from Nick the alleged spy, Carl the gorgeous but clearly troubled Idris Elba lookalike, to Debbie who is about to face the hardest fight of her life, and TV agent Samantha who is not as in control as she likes to pretend.
Each day brings another drama, but along with the tears, real friendships grow. And her neighbours’ problems might unlock the key to something Ali has yearned for all along…
Will these single mums be able to move on from life in the mansion?
