    Caro Swanson has taken a job in a remote part of Scotland.

    She’s answered an ad in The Lady: being a companion to an elderly gentleman who lives in a country estate could be perfect! Surely it is time to make a change and do something different for a while?

    The fact that she may also see Alec, the young man who she met some years previously and who she has always thought of as her ‘one who got away’, is of course purely incidental.

    Soon Caro is falling in love - not only with Alec but with the stunning house and grounds she is now living in. But the estate is in financial difficulties. and it quickly becomes apparent that there is only one way to rescue it.

    So begins a magical romantic summer that will take Caro to London to the south of France and back again to Scotland in search of a classic lost perfume that might just restore all their fortunes.

    Romance, humour, a cast of warm and totally believable characters and the possibility of happy-ever-after lie at the heart of Katie Fforde's wonderful new novel.
