Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I donât think I have ever read a book more appropriate to its title than this. It is indeed a hopelessly romantic tale with an absolutely endearing heroine. Modern, full of the complications of todayâs world and the pain and anguish that go with a bad relationship, Laura flees home to Norfolk and more problems are in store for her. If you want a good, honest, modern romance then you have got to have this.

If you like Harriet Evans you might also like to read books by Sara Macdonald, Jane Green and Trisha Ashley.

Synopsis

A Hopeless Romantic by Harriet Evans

Laura Foster was a hopeless romantic. It was her greatest character flaw, for it was the one 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 glasses, even if it's not delivered her a real-life dashing hero yet?

But when Laura's latest relationship 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 round 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.

But is Nick all he seems? Or has Laura got it wrong again? Will he be the one who makes her enter the convent permanently or is he The One who could thaw her frozen heart?
