A styish contemporary love story. This book was enjoyable and funny. A great read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Cute book by good author. Lite romance set in real-life, present-day Britain.

As always, Katie Fforde sparkles in this light romantic comedy. Her books are perfect fizzy, escapist fiction.

A combination of overwork and jet-lag propels Julia Fairfax into becoming engaged to a golf-playing wine buff called Oscar. When she realises she has fonder feelings for his adorable Labrador than for Oscar himself, she is forced to confront the fact that there is something drastically wrong. Ditching her fiance and jacking in her job, she decides to revolutionise her life.

Her new career as a cook on a pair of hotel boats is certainly a departure, and teaches her more about life than how to get a couple of narrow boats through a lock. But even afloat Julia's past catches up with her. Not only must she contend with the persistent Oscar (not to mention his frightful mother and her own mother's determined matchmaking), but also the arrival of her childhood enemy Fergus Grindley.

I love Fforde, but I would not say this is up to her highest standard. Still, an enjoyable light read!
