Description

Has Laura found her leading man? This is a wonderfully romantic novel from the No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match. With the bookshop where she works about to close, hopeless romantic Laura Horsley, in a moment of uncharacteristic recklessness, finds herself agreeing to help organise a literary festival deep in the heart of the English countryside. But her initial excitement is rapidly followed by a mounting sense of panic when reality sinks in and she realises just how much work is involved - especially when an innocent mistake leads the festival committee to mistakenly believe that Laura is a personal friend of the author at the top of their wish-list. Laura might have been secretly infatuated with the infamous Dermot Flynn ever since she studied him at university, but travelling to Ireland to persuade the notorious recluse to come out of hiding is another matter. Determined to rise to the challenge she sets off to meet her literary hero. But all too soon she's confronted with more than she bargained for - Dermot the man is maddening, temperamental and up to his ears in a nasty case of writer's block. But he's also infuriatingly attractive - and, apparently, out to add Laura to his list of conquests...show more

Our customer reviews

This book was such a thrill to read. The story centers itself around Laura, a 27 year old girl who, despite having been to University and having her own flat is yet to experience life. When she gets roped in to help organize a literary festival, her life takes a change for the better. Suddenly she has to come out of her shell, and persuade one of the countries best writers to come out of hiding and make an appearance at her festival. Laura soon finds herself confronted by infatuation, friendship, heartbreak and ultimately love. At the start Laura is such an innocent, naive girl, who over the course of the story blossoms into a strong, smart, beautiful and independent woman! A wonderful read that will be enjoyed by women of all ages. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!show more
