Ellie Simons longs to be thin - and married. But with her single-minded passion for eclairs and clotted cream, her prospects on both counts seem dim. That's why the summons to attend a family reunion at the old ancestral home is about as welcome as a snake bite. How can she show up with her embarrassingly full figure in her humble unmarried state and keep her chins up? Enter Bentley T. Haskell of Eligibility Escorts, a devastatingly attractive writer of smutty novels who also cooks like a dream. With Ben posing as her besotted beau, Ellie feels brave enough to beard her batty relations in their den ...

A fun - and at times funny - and easy read. Recommended for one of those days you don't want to think too hard, yet want to enjoy the characters and a good mystery.
