Holly lives and works in the beautiful town of Willowbury in Somerset. An incorrigible optimist, she is determined to change the world for the better.

Charlie Thorpe on the other hand, is the ultimate pragmatist. As Willowbury’s new member of parliament, he has to be. While he’s determined to prove himself to the town, as far as Holly’s concerned, he’s just another politician on the make.

But when their paths cross again, it’s clear they’ve got more in common than they think. Can Holly and Charlie overcome their differences and work together, or are they destined to be forever on opposite sides? And why does Holly have a funny feeling she has met Charlie before…

  1. So much fun. Highly recommended.

  2. On top of my Christmas list.

  3. A great book.

  4. Rattling good read it

  5. We need such good reads to lighten our days and there are always some nice twists and surprises in Fay Keenan’s books to keep you hooked.

    I now alternate my reading of bio’s, classics etc. with either books by McCall Smith or books like this as they lift me, give me some warmth and laughter and keep me going.

  6. A cracking romance. Love the setting and the politics adds a new twist – and I learned something about the political process too!

  7. Another true delight by Fay Keenan. This time we’re taken to the Somerset village of Willowbury, where, quite clearly, we see two opposites do attract in Holly and Charlie.

    Although this book covers a serious topic with Cystic Fibrosis, and involves politics – Charlie is one sexy politician, after all – do not be put off! It is so well done, you’ll love every minute of the journey the author takes you on.

  8. Loved this easy to read feel good story.

  9. Zycie jest tak dobre, jak dobrym pozwalasz mu byc. – Charles Bukowski

  10. Czas to material, z ktorego zrobione jest zycie. – Benjamin Franklin.

  11. I really like your take on the issue. I now have a clear idea on what this matter is all about.. Relationship Tips
