Abbie and Millers first encounter was when she headed for a walk through the gardens at the wedding and she got caught in the sprinklers, Miller had went out to warn her that they were about to go off but it was too late and they both got soaked. Miller offered to let her shower and clean up in his suite and between the jigs and the reels Abbie told him she would meet him downstairs at the wedding reception. Unfortunately Miller at to return suddenly to New York as a work matter came up but he did give Abbie a letter which she binned.

Abbie felt unlucky in love but also very set in her ways that she thought that if a man really wanted her he would chase her……

This book was absolutely hilarious Mr Sumo Abbie’s dog gets his own part of the story and you get a great insight in to the people of Dilbury Village and how they all impact on Abbie’s life.

Abbie and Miller do try the long distance relationship for a while but with each parting it gets harder and harder to say goodbye. When they finally have the talk about there relationship they both admit that they love each other but neither of them are ready to make the move across the water. There is a lingering in this part of the story because although they decide they can’t be together if none of them will make the move.  This is where we see that neither of them want to move on all they want is each other. Can these two make it work, will there come a time for each of them when all that matters is being with each other and having a life together or will they leave it till its all too late…..

This book is a light hearted girly book, it will lift your spirits and make you laugh uncontrollably. The epilogue will make your heart swoon and I love how it moves on five years and leaves us with how there lives are to be. Charlotte Fallowfields writing is as always flawless and that what I always enjoy about reading her books shes a fantastic writer and I always look forward to her next book.

I give this book a well deserving 5 stars

I was given an ARC for an honest review.
