The warm and enchanting new novel from the best-selling author of 'Going Home'.
Laura Foster was a hopeless romantic. It was her greatest character flaw, for it was the only thing that genuinely got her into trouble...
Her friends know it, her parents know it -- even Laura acknowledges she lives either with her head in the clouds or buried in a romantic novel. But what's wrong with seeing the world through rose-tinted classes, even if its not delivered her a real-life dashing hero yet?
But when Laura's latest relationships ends in disaster rather than a glorious sunset, she swears off men, and particularly hopeless romantic fantasies, for good. With her life in tatters around her, she foolishly agrees to go on holiday with her parents and grandmother (combined age nearly 200...).
After a few days of traipsing around Norfolk craft shops and National Trust properties, Laura's ready to tear her hair out. And then she meets prickly but sexy Nick, estate manager at Chartley Hall, one of the country's greatest stately homes. She swiftly finds she shares more than just a sense of humour with him -- in fact, she starts to think she could fall for him.
