With the bookshop where she works about to close, hopeless romantic Laura Horsley recklessly finds herself agreeing to help organise a literary festival in the heart of the English countryside. But her initial excitement is rapidly followed by a mounting sense of panic when she realises just how much work is involved - especially when an innocent mistake leads the festival committee to believe that Laura is a personal friend of the author at the top of their wish-list. Laura might be secretly infatuated with the infamous Dermot Flynn, but travelling to Ireland to persuade the notorious recluse to come out of hiding is another matter.

Determined to rise to the challenge, she sets off to meet her literary hero. But all too soon she's confronted with more than she bargained for - Dermot the man is maddening, temperamental and up to his ears in a nasty case of writer's block. But he's also infuriatingly attractive - and, apparently, out to add Laura to his list of conquests ...

Lonely Laura puts her fears aside to set up a literary festival in Ireland, where she observes charming locals, admires the views and meets a mysterious—and handsome—author. I loved the characters and location. Delightful story with only a hint of sex.

Likeable characters, passion, and everything you ever wanted to know about literary festivals and careers in writing. Well, that seems to be the emphasis! Our protagonist Laura gains confidence as she moves from job loss to finding her own space. She has the wrong idea about what she means to the attractive Irish writer, the man of her dreams, her blind spot continuing a little long, and in the journey we take a side tour to a hilariously dysfunctional book club. One thing that left me wondering for the length of the novel was the title. At the end, I was still mystified.

Maybe it was just me, but this wasn't her best effort. Same story just tweak the details of all her books.

Charming, as always. Katie Fforde has created another entirely likeable heroine with Laura, an avid reader and longtime bookshop clerk, who is asked to organize a small literary festival at a stately country house.

Forced out of her shell, she is sent to Ireland to do whatever it takes to sign up reclusive author Dermot for the festival. After a couple of whiskeys and a passionate snog, he agrees and the two are on board for a writerly, passionate will they, won't they story. You'll love it!
