Synopsis

Amber Scott is Starting Over by Ruth Saberton

Amber Scott loves her city life - a terrific job working on a glossy magazine, and a fiance, Ed, she's known since Uni. Even if Ed doesn't take her job seriously (as a solicitor, he doesn't have much time for women's magazines!), it is Amber's dream job. So Ed's news that he has taken a job in the West Country turns Amber's world upside down. The new life in Cornwall does not get off to the best start. The huge house Ed was so keen on is, well, huge - what is Amber going to do with four acres? And do M&S make Aga-ready meals? And when a handsome, if surly, man leads the local hunt over her land, it's more than Amber can stand. So how is it that, before long Amber is friends with the local eccentric Lady of the Manor, making love potions at her mother's recommendation - and answering the door naked to strangers...?

Reviews

Amber is a gorgeous character to spend time with, and it's a real treat to find a genuinely funny, uplifting book. Ruth writes with such joie de vivre, warmth and wit that she really stands out from the crowd -- Fiona Walker
