Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I cannot praise this highly enough. It is young Jilly Cooper territory, all jolly super Cotswold folk, throw in a film crew shooting for television, much panting, preening and pouting and you have a most wonderful, upbeat romp with laughter, tears and warmth. She has written three previous novels set in the Cotswolds, all gems but with this one she has surpassed herself.

Comparison: Julian Fellowes, Jilly Cooper, Claudia Carroll.
Similar this month: Belinda Jones, Jill Mansell.

If you like Veronica Henry you might also like to read books by Christina Jones, Claudia Carroll and Madeleine Wickham.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

An Eligible Bachelor by Veronica Henry

Eversleigh Manor provides the perfect location for hit new television show, Lady Jane Investigates. But when the film crew descends en masse, no one could have predicted that romance would be brewing before the clapperboard had snapped its last. Least of all Guy Portias, heir to the manor and favourite beau of leading lady, Richenda Fox.

And Guy's rash proposal of marriage in the drunken wake of the after-show party is only the first of his worries. After all, his mother has her heart set on running Country House Weekends for the discerning holidaymaker and her new employee, Honor, has a talent for mass catering . . . and for making Guy feel a little warm under the collar.

But Honor is preoccupied with her own problems - a fickle ex-boyfriend is hovering in the wings and her best friend, Henty, seems inordinately distracted by her smouldering new groom, Travis. Throw in a long-lost mother, a philandering husband and a floozy of a florist and watch the residents of Eversleigh village work themselves into a lather of epic proportions.

Reviews

Rumbustious, rustic romance . . . all the essential ingredients for a delightful romp. -- The Daily Express (UK)
