Actress Annie Mitchell is devastated. Her husband Max has run off with her best friend, leaving her with a stack of unpaid bills and the self-esteem of the last sandwich in a railway buffet. But salvation is on the horizon care of her agent, Julia, who has a tall, dark and disconcertingly sexy surprise up her sleeve. Protesting madly, Annie finds herself bound for Yorkshire and a starring role in rep'. The only problem being that Much Ado About Nothing has nothing on events at the Phoenix Theatre.

Review Text

A frothy, entertaining romance from television soaps journalist Hay. Heroine Annie Mitchell is a moderately successful actress - attractive, talented, but hopelessly in thrall to her rat of a husband, Max. When he suddenly elopes with her best friend, it takes the threat of penury and a fast-expanding waistline to drag her away from her chocolate addiction and force her to look for a job. What follows is the usual romantic formula as Annie discovers her new director is none other than an old flame, Nick Ryan. On the way to a happy ending there are all the usual misunderstandings and dramas - including a convoluted sub-plot involving a vengeful ghost, a disinherited son and a touch of big-business intrigue.
