We are a big fan of Carole Matthews. Her books are such fun and always heartwarming. If you haven't tried her already then her latest tale of Fern Kandal, a struggling singer working as a barmaid to make ends meet will have you gripped. When she takes a job as assistant to opera singer Evan David she takes on a whole lot more than she bargained for. A great summer read.

If you like Carole Matthews you might also like to read books by Anna Maxted, Catherine Alliott and Claudia Carroll.

Synopsis

Welcome to the Real World by Carole Matthews

Fern Kendal dreams that one day her talent will be `discovered` and that singing in the local pub with her oldest friend Carl will be nothing but a distant memory. There again, in the real world dreams like that never come true. Or do they? When she takes a job as PA to world famous opera singer Evan David, his flamboyant lifestyle, chauffeur-driven limousines and luxurious apartments couldn`t be further from her own world. It`s clear she`s got a lot to learn, but so has Evan – lessons that only Fern can teach him - and, together, maybe their dreams will come true…
