'Perfect summer reading!' - Bella Osborne Two families. One cancelled flight. And a last minute house swap... Things get desperate for strangers Harriet and Sophie when they become stranded with their families in Heathrow's Terminal 5. Each woman has her own reason for really really really needing the family holiday they've anticipated for months. But Iceland's volcano has other plans for them. When their flights are cancelled, the families swap houses and discover that sometimes the best things in life happen close to home. This ash cloud has a silver lining, even if no one can quite see it yet. For fans of Sarah Morgan, Veronica Henry and Sue Moorcroft. 'A lighthearted funny read about two very different families who meet at Heathrow airport when their holidays abroad are cancelled due to the ash cloud!' netgalley reviewer 'This is a great book because it has allowed me to switch off from everything that's going on and be lost in the pages.' netgalley reviewer

Gissy @sprainedbrain I told you, it would take time but it is here! So grateful with everything! You should see my face when I saw the books and the name of the country in each package was so fun, and the cookies which I had to opened😉The print is already in my bookshelf. Everything has a place already! Thank you, thank you!🤗❤️❤️❤️ 12mo
sprainedbrain I realized after I had sealed the box that I forgot to put the cute ribbons on the wrapped gifts. The plain brown wrapper isn‘t nearly as cute without the ribbons. 😬 You are SO WELCOME and I‘m glad I got you some stuff you like as much as I love the stuff you got me!! ❤️ 12mo
Gissy @sprainedbrain They were perfect! I‘m terrible wrapping gifts. In my case I always say that I didn‘t pass class where you develop the fine motor skills☺️ 12mo
Chrissyreadit Im so happy it arrived and everything looks amazing ❤️❤️❤️ 12mo
