Lizzie Greene is about to lose everything when her husband suddenly dies and his debts come to light.
To make ends meet she opens up her quirky old house to be used as a set for a film based on a bestselling romance novel. Her life and household are turned upside down when a whole cast of colourful characters enters her family’s lives: from an enigmatic author, a handsome location scout, a brooding director, to a heart-throb leading man, never mind her now ex-mother-in-law camped out in her drive.
As Lizzie delves deeper into the film’s book, all is not as it seems.
Will her desire to save her house and unravel the secrets of the past lead to new love, or to mortal danger?
I really liked the sound of this book when I was invited to be part of the blog tour, but it’s even better than the blurb suggests.
It grabs you right from the start. There’s Lizzie just having an ordinary day, slightly hassled in the supermarket, when a phonecall changes her whole life.
I loved the characters, Lizzie was particularly likeable, she really triumphs over adversity. Her ex-mother in law was both formidable and funny! When she turned up first I thought I wasn’t going to like her, but by the end of the book I loved her. The cast and crew of the film were excellent, all such different characters.
The plot is wonderful. There’s the human side of Lizzie’s story, the fascinating insight into the world of film, and a back story of the book that the film is based on. There’s both romance and mystery, and the plot just draws you in. It’s a very well rounded book.
The setting was magical. I could picture her quirky and fascinating house and it’s surroundings perfectly. It was so atmospheric and really made the story.
A story full of twists and turns, captivating and absorbing. I loved it. Thanks to Aria Fiction for the ARC..
