This is a beauty. Jake has chucked in his job at a London investment bank and is at a loose end. His colleague and friend Lucy Harrison invites him down to her family’s home for the weekend, but when he arrives it’s clear that she has an ulterior motive. Her little brother, Matt, has fathered a child he desperately wants to keep but in order to do so, his mother, who has vanished somewhere in Mombasa, must be found and brought back to help him parent the baby. Lucy’s family is dysfunctional but utterly charming and Jake finds himself drawn into their web. In a parallel story, David and the gorgeous Leila are finally going to be parents. After years of hoping and waiting, they’ve been approved to adopt a baby - Matt’s baby. But when the Harrisons decide they’re keeping Grace, it looks like the dream is over. Great characters, page turning story line - recommended.

This book appeals to me on a few things...firstly I love books that have many different twists like this one sounds....secondly it sounds like a book that is hard to put down
