Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Romantic, feel-good comedy about a jaded Londoner finding a very different life in the Scottish Highlands. All very whimsical, warm and obvious but it’s good escapist stuff.

Comparison: Sophie Kinsella, Carmen Reid, Jane Green.
Similar this month: Kathleen Flynn Hui, Lisa Jewell.

If you like Jenny Colgan you might also like to read books by Carmen Reid, Sue Watson and Carole Matthews.

Synopsis

Where Have All The Boys Gone? by Jenny Colgan

While Katie's glad it's not a man's world any more, she'd be quite pleased if there were more men in it - or at least single ones, anyway.

More likely to get murdered than married, according to gleeful media reports, Katie resigns herself to the fact there's no sex in the city and heads for the hills - or the Scottish highlands, to be precise.

Despite the fact she's never been a girl for wellies - and Fairlish is in the middle of nowhere - the tiny town does have one major draw: men. Lots of them.

But while Katie relishes the chance to do battle with armies of admirers, she's not reckoned on going head to head with her grumpy new boss, Harry, shadowy developers intent on destroying the beautiful countryside and Mrs McClockerty, the least suitable hotelier since Norman Bates.

At least there's the local eye-candy to distract her, including gorgeous newshound Iain. But he is at loggerheads with Harry, and Harry despises her. Life in the country might not be one big roll in the hay but can Katie ever turn her back on the delights of Fairlish and return to city life?
