The new wonderfully warm and witty novel from Fern Britton, the much-loved TV personality.
Perfect for fans of Katie Fforde and Trisha Ashley.
When the residents of the Cornish seaside town of Trevay discover that their ramshackle but much-loved theatre is about to be taken over by a global coffee chain, Café au Lait, they are up in arms.
It is up to Penny Leighton, hotshot Producer, to come up with a plan to save it. Armed with her only her mobile phone and her enviable contacts book, she starts to pull in some serious favours. Trevay soon finds itself at the centre of the universe when more A-listers than you can shake a stick at arrive to take part in a charity season at the theatre.
The play throws out a chance to Jess Tate, girlfriend to TV heartthrob Ryan Roberts. His career is on the rise while hers remains resolutely in the doldrums. But when opportunity comes calling, it isn’t just her career prospects that are about to change.
Tevay is about to put on the show of its life – but can the villagers, and Jess, hold on to the thing they love the most?

Review: 9 out of 10
Fern is very quickly becoming one of my favourite authors of all time. Not only does she create an enthralling seaside community and describes the scenery so beautifully, she creates characters and scenarios that draw you in and keep you there until the story is done.
As you can probably tell from the first paragraph, I absolutely adored this story. There were quite a few characters to get to grips with but the way they were introduced to the story I had absolutely no trouble in keeping up with them and remembering who they are.
What I loved about this story...
Everything. The descriptions of locations were so great that they made me feel as if I was right there in the story, I loved that given the fact that at the time I was reading this book it was a typical rainy English day! The fact that each character had their own particular back story and mini plot in this story coupled with the fact that we had the major plot line of saving the theatre, kept my attention right until the very end of the story.
What I was not fond of with this story...
I loved this story from start to finish and cannot come up with anything that I was not fond of...
