Summary: When Florence Darling's childhood sweetheart and husband, Harry, leaves her for another man, she doubts she will be able to survive the heartache. Only the thought of her son Monty returning from his gap year Down Under keeps her from death by chocolate cupcake. But when Monty emerges into the arrivals hall at Paddington Station, he is not alone. He is with a woman. An older woman. A woman he introduces as his wife, Crystal. Worse, bad things always happen in threes in Florence's family, so when her doctor leaves a message to ring him urgently, she knows it won't be about a miracle anti-ageing serum. On top of everything, she's lost her job and the plan to turn her crumbling London home into a tea room has hit a major snag. Could life get any worse? It could, or so she thinks, until mysterious handyman Will turns up. Before too long he proves to be just Florence's cup of tea and suddenly life with all its hiccups is only just beginning.
