ReviewsThe ideal summer read Choice The romance fizzes along with good humour and is a good, fat, summery read Sunday Mirror Old-fashioned romance of the best sort ...funny, comforting Elle
Jenny Porter calls herself a 'Virtual Assistant', taking on a wide range of projects for her various employers. Her latest is to research an ailing Scottish woollen mill and decide whether it is salvageable or should be closed down. Before long she finds herself professionally and emotionally involved not only in the mill and its workers but in various other crises in the lives of the whole community. In no time at all she's running a Burger Bar and arranging elaborate dinner parties for the autocratic mill-owner. But it isn't until she meets her hitherto unseen client (in the most unpropitious of circumstances) that her troubles really begin. And then Henry, her ex, pops up again.... Katie Fforde's likeable heroines are always their own worst enemies: falling in love unsuitably, and usually violently; getting involved in impossible situations, but rescuing themselves and everyone else in the end. Jenny's determination to preserve Dalmain Mills 'and all who serve in them
never wavers, and her inherent kindness and friendliness are vital factors in her success. Although the story is frothy, froth isn
't all. Katie Fforde always has an interesting, and topical, theme to her books that gives them added verisimilitude. Since she won a Romantic Novelists'
Association Award for her first novel, Living Dangerously, she
's built up an enthusiastic and faithful readership which is thoroughly well-deserved. (Kirkus UK)'
