About this eBook

Deliciously romantic and funny. Perfect book to lift your spirits for 2020!

Out with the old life, in with the new …

When Laura’s bride-to-be sister, Polly, organises a surprise reunion for her fiancé and his long lost American friend, Laura grudgingly agrees to help keep the secret. And when the plain-spoken, larger-than-life Hunter McQueen steps off the bus in her rainy Devon town and only just squeezes into her tiny car, it confirms that Laura has made a big mistake in going along with her sister's crazy plan.

But could the tall, handsome man with the Nashville drawl be just what reserved Laura Williams needs to shake up her life and start something new?

I was initially quite concerned I’d made a mistake with this book as I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to warm up to the main character of Laura, she seemed like the perfect example of a dried-up priggish snob who needed to save up for that all-important surgery to have the stick removed, and hers seemed to be so deeply embedded it could have been fatal. Luckily her soon to be married sister placed a huge and oddly insightful wedding guest in her charge, and though he annoyed the uptight Laura to no end, he also intrigued her as well. His thoughtful and perceptive manner gradually thawed her iciness until the sparks could ignite. This is my third time delving into Ms. Britnell’s wryly written work and I am quite taken with her amusing and vibrantly descriptive style as she manages to easily entertain my gray matter while smoothly slotting me into the sidelines of each scene. I was tucked in and part of the background yet could smell their perfume and charred attempts at meal preparation. Her storylines were engaging, easy to follow, and agilely managed to effortlessly yet thoughtfully tap on all the feels. I’m not sure how she does that but I’d like to have a ready supply of some of that on my shelf.

Laura has no intention of ever getting married again. Her ex-husband is a jerk and she’d rather just concentrate on her nursing career and help her sister Polly prepare for her wedding. But the universe drops a tall, dark, and handsome American in her lap and suddenly Laura isn’t quite sure she is ready to abandon her happily ever after. Laura and Hunter are electric in this story – they are both reluctant but undeniably attracted to each other. This book was a pleasure to read and I will definitely be checking out other books from this author.

This romance between a large American and a British nurse hits all the right spots. The initial reluctance to host Hunter for her sister's surprise 'gift' to her soon to be husband made Laura very negative towards him. As the reasons for this are made clear to the reader you understand her reluctance totally. As you would imagine things do eventually improve between our hero and heroine but the the twists keep you keen to read more. A lovely sweet story that only needs you to get the chocolate, a comfy chair and enjoy yourself.
