Connie Gordon is looking to escape.....
Escape from endless diets, cheating boyfriends and fame-hungry friends. So she accepts and invitation to visit her No. 1 fan club in the small Scottish village of Lochnabrae.
Yet instead of a peaceful retreat, she's thrown in amongst the locals' love lives, gossipy rumours and even the am-dram society. There she meets her biggest fan Maggie, a host of new friends and reclusive writer Alistair, who is running away from his own troubles in London.
But there's no escaping some secrets and soon Connie's are going to catch up with her....
Victoria Connelly has written an engaging and funny Chick-lit just as a chick-lit should be with a heroine trying to escape the bright lights of Hollywood and find some peace, a handsome stranger with his own story to tell, and a cast of eccentric village members to be expected in a small community.
Connie Gordon is a Hollywood actress with links to a small village in deepest Scotland. Not only did her mother originate from the village but her No. 1 fan club is based there.
This in itself brings about questions as to how did Connie get to Hollywood if her mother was from a small Scottish village and why is her fan club based there? All will be revealed as Connie's story unfolds.
Connie is stressed with her fast paced Hollywood lifestyle and never ending glare of the limelight, so when she receives an invite to visit Lochnabrae she books a flight - much to the complete surprise of the locals.
Connie will not get the peace she expects as the locals can be just as full on as the journalists back in Hollywood. Everyone knows everything about everyone else.
Alistair is also escaping to the village but for different reasons. A playwright in London, he is seeking a quieter lifestyle and seeks this in a crofter's cottage.
The locals are friendly to the point of intrusion at times and Maggie, who is Connie's biggest fan did have me worried as she was almost on the verge of obsessive.
This ticks all the chick-lit boxes with a Hollywood style ending. Fabulous!
5 out of 5 for me!
