After hearing yet another lovelorn guest pour her heart out over a glass or three of wine, Buffy has an idea. What if his guesthouse offered something more than a warm, welcoming host and a neverending supply of booze? What if it offered help and advice to the newly-single? After all, he’s survived three marriages and many children himself, so he must have learned a thing or two along the way. With that in mind, Buffy founds a school for the broken-hearted. Mechanics, Cookery, Household Finances, Talking to Women – anything that might help a recent divorcee find his or her feet.
Buffy’s idea turns out to be more than just a money-maker. Soon, guests who flocked to Knockton looking for a helping hand are finding a new lease on life. As old relationships are rekindled and new love blooms, there might just be one last chance at love for the master of the house, too.
