A charming and romantic novel by Kate Fenton, set in North Yorkshire.
When a TV production company burst onto the scene of a sleepy North Yorkshire town to film a version of Pride and Prejudice, there aren't just fireworks on-screen. For the production team are set on pursuing love interests off-camera with the locals, to the dismay of local novelist and journalist Nicholas Llewellyn Bevan.
But despite his client's reluctance, Nicholas' literary agent, George, sees the potential in this sudden injection to glamour in the town. Landing a deal with a high-flying movie producer could be the big break his novelist has been waiting for . . .
Exciting, sexy, funny . . . A witty and clever love story that will keep you gripped until the end - guaranteed to get even the most cynical of readers heaving a deep sigh of contentment. - Company
