Little Mowbury is a sleepy English village deep in the Cotswolds. The kind of village where you’re only a local if your lineage can be traced back to the dinosaurs. Where you can find everything in the single village shop from morning newspapers to dry-cleaning, and getting your shoes mended. And, of course, where everybody knows everybody else’s business. It’s easy to find… you can’t miss it… just ask anyone and they’ll tell you… “It’s left at the crossroads.”
Eighteen months ago Jason Havers lost the love of his life and it's time to move on. Applying for the position of chef in a sleepy country pub, a million miles away from his previous life, may well be the fresh start he needs. His new employers immediately take him under their wing and before long he finds himself with a passel of new friends and a job he loves. What he doesn’t expect is Tom, a gorgeous midwife, who stirs up feelings he’s not ready to deal with.
But when someone from his previous life turns up in Little Mowbury, will Jason be able to keep them from revealing the secret he’s been keeping from those he’s come to love?

My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars
We're back to Little Mowbry where all those who wish to run from the harsh world ends up staying and loving. This is a series that circles in and around this little town and the first we come to read of it, we had met Tom the man Micah left when his one, true love came back in the hopes of hiding from a deadly relationship. Reading about Tom, I pitied him and I kind of hated Micah for doing that to him. Thankfully, Tom finds his one and only in Jason Havers.
Jason is running from reality (are you getting the drift now?) after having lost his husband to a car accident. His husband's friends and family, even the lawyers, thought of him as a trophy husband for Jason was much younger. When everyone turned away, leaving him with nothing, he runs to Little Mowbry and gets to work for a couple who owns a pub. The couple soon becomes his family and they introduce him to Tom.
Tom is a fantastic guy, sorry Micah, and he knew he was attracted to Jason. Jason is the same, he feels the full attraction for the first time since he got widowed. Unfortunately, love lingers, even if the object of the love is no longer around. The guilt rides on Jason and Tom understands. Instead of insta-love, there is insta-lust that evolves to a very close friendship. When the truth comes knocking on the door, it is when we read just how beautiful their friendship turns to love.
Wow. Only Sue Brown can turn a formulaic plot into a very romantic and simple love story. This is so lightly written, it came out a short read which kind of made this disappointing and yet just right.
