Quarter finalist, 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Grace Palmer's British friends all think she's living the American Dream. But her design business is floundering and when she discovers her husband is cheating with her best client, she panics and flees home to England. The tranquil village of Saffron Sweeting appears to be a good place for Grace to lick her wounds, but the community is battling its own changes. Reluctantly, Grace finds herself helping her new neighbours as they struggle to adjust and save their businesses. However, not everyone has the same opinion on what's good for the village. The charismatic new man in her life may have one speculative eye on Grace, but the other is firmly on profit. How will she navigate the tricky path between her home and her happiness? With gentle humour and generous helpings of British tea and cake, Saving Saffron Sweeting explores one woman's need to define herself through her career and community, before she can figure out who should be by her side.… (mer)

This was an enjoyable read. Even more impressive, it was the first novel from Pauline Wiles. Several authors I have read have been on their third or fourth novel before they got to this quality.
Wiles mainly set this novel in Saffron Sweeting, a fictional English Village. I believe she set her next couple of novels there too and they will be on my to read list. I have long been a fan of novels set in villages, no doubt starting with Rebecca Shaw's Turnham Malpas series.
As I live in England, (but a large city suburb not a village) the English setting was more familiar than the sections set in Silicon Valley. A large part of this novel features Grace interpreting American behaviours to the village resident. I can't help wondering if Wiles has or will write a novel featuring the chunk of time when Grace and James first went to America and how they initially adapted there. Did Grace have a Grace of her own who helped her adapt?
One thing I loved most about this novel is how the story kept it real, there were no incidents where a character was being a blind idiot. I have read so many chic-flic novels written in this way. Yes, Grace explored relationships with people and not everyone's behaviour was commendable. Equally nobody was a monster.
The biggest test I always have when I read a novel is am I ready for this book it to end? No, I didn't I wanted to read on and find out more about these characters, which I hope I can do soon! ( )

Adorable book! I really loved it. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is I can't honestly say - omg, this is the best book ever. ( )

I received a copy of Saving Saffron Sweeting by Pauline Wiles in exchange for an honest review.

This was a really cute story about Grace and the challenges she faces when she discovers her husband James is cheating on her. I really liked Grace and she was someone I could relate to on so many levels. Her whole world is rocked by James’ infidelity and unable to deal with it, she runs away to a small English town to figure out what to do next.

She finds herself in Saffron Sweeting and meets some very interesting characters, some of whom become good friends and a good support system. But during her struggles she finds what is important and realizes that sometimes not everything there are some grey areas in life that you have to work through.

Lovely book. Very Jill Mansell-ish.
Well written, well edited.

This is Brit chick lit, which to me means it is just a look at the life of our characters.
Yes, things happen; but it is not full of fabulous living, trips to Paris and billionaire baby daddies.
Just a good book with a common trope executed well.

Loved every minute of it. ( )
