A laugh out loud romantic comedy

Description

She closed her eyes. Think with your head. Your heart can’t be trusted. Life is not a fairytale…

Single mum Rory doesn’t believe in love. She’s got far too many real problems to deal with. 

She’s just bought a tumbledown house. Her mother is generally behaving like a wicked witch, insisting on calling her Aurora, and generally interfering in her (admittedly pitiful lack of) love life. And her 16-year-old daughter has finally grown out of Disney princesses and discovered dating…

But Rory’s adamant that she doesn’t need saving. In fact, the only thing she’s wishing on a star for is a bit of practical help. However, when she meets a builder whose name is John Prince and who seems to be in the habit of rescuing her (right down to finding her lost shoe one evening) she might have to face a truth as uncomfortable as hobbling home barefoot – that maybe there’s something enchanted in the air.

Her mother, daughter and friends are convinced her prince has come, but Rory just wishes everyone could let it go. Especially when she hears a story that makes her question whether he is really the hero everyone thinks he is…

A hilarious, romantic love story about mothers, daughters and how on earth to find Prince Charming, for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes and Cecelia Ahern.

Customer Reviews

A lovely feelgood tale

This is a easy feelgood read that gets you laughing and crying and then giving your nose a good blow at the end when everything gets sorted out! It follows the trials and tribulations of secondary school teacher Rory, her daughter Belle and mum Sheila, together with best friends Susie and Penny. With that many single women in the mix there's got to be romances a plenty as well as misunderstandings and inevitable heartbreak. And there's Rory's ramshackle house that she's taken on as a project as a central problem to be resolved.

The author writes with a lovely light wit that pulls the narrative along and gets you invested in her characters and their lives, with subject matter that will resonate with many. It was a very enjoyable read, perfect for a lazy summer weekend.
