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.

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.''
