The charming and romantic second novel by Kate Fenton, set on the Yorkshire Moors.
Oxford on a rainswept midsummer night. Enter Becca Haydock, actress (resting) and Other Woman. Stood up on her thirtieth birthday, dressed to kill with thoughts to match, drenched and sore of foot. Enter a very drunk, hairy-chested restaurateur: Joe Duff, going broke but with a wicked line in chat. And Oliver, archetypal Oxford man, floppy-haired and bicycle-clipped, the idol of Becca's undergraduate days.
The stage is set. And as the drama unfolds. Becca is unwittingly caught up in a tragedy of Shakespearian proportions.
