I borrowed this book from my local library, but it can be purchased at retailers such as Amazon. I had not previously read any books by the author so I wasn't too sure if I'd like it.
The story involves novellist Amy, who flees to a Devon hotel after her affair with a married television presenter (Teddy) is picked up by a tabloid reporter (Will). Desperate to avoid his secret being printed for all and sundy to read, Teddy tells Amy to lie low. After an incident involving Will and his photographer assistant trying to photograph Amy in her flat, she panics and climbs over the rooftop to leave her flat! As Will intensifies his efforts to track her down for the big scoop, will her carefully cultivated public persona come crashing down around her?
Other characters in the book also find their way to the hotel, and each of them has the opportunity to reflect on their perception of love and what it really means. Is Amy's romance with Teddy really quite what she thought it was?
This is a great romantic comedy full of characters who are both realistic and believable. I have to admit to a little bit of surprise that this was the case from a male writer, but clearly men can write romantic comedies just as well as women! Ray Connolly is such an engaging writer and his writing style is easy to follow with good characterisation. I would definitely recommend this book as I really struggled to put it down.
