What they say: A LAUGH-OUT-LOUD TALE OF LOVE, LIES AND SECOND CHANCES …
Love comes around when you least expect it. Fifty-something widow Emily isn’t looking for romance. Nor is she expecting a hunky twenty-something chimney sweep on her doorstep.
Daughter Tabitha knows her relationship isn’t quite right, while her boss – Abba-loving Meryl – thinks she’s found the real deal.
Emily’s sister Celeste has the perfect marriage. Or does she?
Susan is single, overweight and resigned to a life of loneliness. There was the one who got away, but second chances are for other people.
Buckle up for a rollercoaster ride of emotions in a book that will grab, your heart, make you smile and wish you had a chimney to sweep.

A warm and witty read. Leaves you with a lovely fuzzy feeling. Fabulously entertaining … I didn’t want to put it down!
The review: You’ll remember how much I loved The Haunting of Hattie Hastings, with its fantastic romance, intelligent humour and general gripping nature, while at the same time having me not want to finish. As a result, when I saw this, A Clean Sweep, by the lovely and amazing Audrey Davies, I jumped.
A Clean Sweep is the story of a number of different characters, all who are looking for something in their life. I’ll admit to not having read the blurb and so thinking this was just the story of Emily, a widow, and Joe, the lovely chimney sweep and then was nicely surprised!
I love multiple stories, and was intrigued to see where they would meet up and thrilled that I continuously knew who each of the characters were and could keep up with their lives. I’ll admit I’m a bit of a prude, so some of the cheekier moments weren’t totally my thing, but it didn’t really matter, I was so swept (see what I did there) up in everything else!
The storytelling is rich, intelligent and bright, I felt for all the characters, (even the ones I had thought I couldn’t warm to) and flew through the book to a satisfying, wonderful, feel good (and also very real) ending.
