Then a blossoming friendship with publishing hot-shot Nate begins to shake Rosie's resolve at the same time as her brother arrives in the Big Apple, hiding a secret. But a chance meeting brings Rosie face to face with her past, unravelling the mystery behind her arrival in New York. Rosie is forced to confront questions she has long been trying to ignore, including will she ever get her very own happy-ever-after? A sparkling, romantic comedy about an English girl who finds herself in the city where dreams can come true - or so she thinks!

Reviews

Authonomy reader reviews: 'This is so well written, such an enjoyable read. The characters are all distinctive, leaping right off the page.

'This is warm, sweet and frothy as a cappuccino with just enough of the bitter side of life coming through. I love the juxtaposition of the English rose amidst bright, brittle New Yorkers - each of your characters is clearly established and distinctly voiced.'

'This book is fabulous. Your writing style is wonderful and you have vivid characters that a reader can really fall in love with.'

'Miranda - put succinctly, your writing SPARKLES.''
