  • Interesting Title

    This was a very creative story. I found I had to read quite a few pages before I put it down. Katie Fforde is a wonderful writer and a creative one makes you want to read more of her books

  • Loan sharks, stately homes, romance galore

    Classic Katie Fforde! Hetty Longden has lost her home, her boyfriend and her job when she discovers her boyfriend Alistair (and boss) in their bed with another woman, because he couldn't think of how to tell Hetty he'd found someone else! Her mother, being the interfering middle-class English mother that she is, finds Hetty a temporary position caretaking Great Uncle Samuel's decrepit stately home while he's in hospital. Drawn almost against her will into the life of the local village, Hetty and the villagers cook up a plan to make the house self-sufficient through visitor days, fairs, and dinners. There's added drama because Samuel's heir, Connor Barrabin who's living and working in Turkmenistan, wants to turn the whole place into a theme park. Just when things are going well Connor arrives the night before a car boot sale There's romance. strident villagers, glamorous neighbours with a heart of gold, grumpy heirs, nefarious loan sharks and errant boyfriends aplenty in this charming gentle romantic comedy.

    Thanks for your feedback!
