Definitely enjoyed it. Though some of the scenes were repetitive. Slightly slow but a sweet story!
This one's for you if you are looking for a slow-burn romance that turns love into domestic bliss with a sprinkling of second-chance and forced proximity tropes.

Isolating yourself doesn’t allow you to move forward, you get stuck in your grief. Then Felix convinced her to let his best friend, Jack, stay in her house until he found somewhere to live. He had lived abroad for years and now newly divorced, he was returning home to live and re-establish his business.
Lily didn’t really want to share her large house with anyone, least of all Jack, on whom she’d had a crush as a teenager. Jack was determined to pay his way but Lily refused to accept money however, eventually they came to an agreement that Jack would sort out her overgrown garden as payment.
The story progressed gently, breaking down barriers and preconceived ideas until the realisation that letting other people into your life is not a bad thing, in fact it can be good.
It was a delightful story, a nice change of pace. I’m looking for some more of this author’s book’s now.
