After yet another failure on the London dating scene, Kate escapes to the idyllic Exmoor village of Bursford and her "Cinderella Project" renovating a run-down cottage on the edge of the moors.
Hopes of a quiet retreat are thwarted, however; in a village seething with intrigues, a new female face attracts a lot of attention. She becomes entangled with local landowners the Blackmores - in particular brooding Ed, his divorced playboy brother Jack, and their flighty stepmother, Camilla. Something is rotten in the estate of the Blackmores, and Kate’s unwilling involvement threatens both her peace of mind and her safety. Will she be forced to flee back to London, or can she prevail and find a new life of rural serenity?

Tell us about yourself! Attorney/Rancher - eclectic taste in books in both fiction and non-fiction. Preference for British authors in mysteries, love well written dialogue and hate historical fiction.
Potential alcoholic female who seems to want to sleep with any male wearing long pants. She's about as interesting and charming as a working girl, but, she apparently thinks this a advocation.

I enjoyed listening to it, but it has made me wary of buying audio books with purely romantic lines. The end was too predictable before half way through.
