Right through to his marrow. Alice didn’t seem to be aware of the cold walk across the moors

Right through to his marrow. Alice didn’t seem to be aware of the cold walk across the moors. So far they hadn’t encountered anyone else mad enough to be out. Surrounded by a landscape that was lunar in scale, vast and desolate, it was as if they had the world to themselves. He stood for a moment to adjust his scarf and to catch his breath. Alice was a fast walker and he was becoming increasingly aware that he wasn’t as fit as he could be.

I admit that when I bought this book I was cautious about what to expect. It had no reviews on Amazon and I often find editorial reviews somewhat lacking and biased in their opinions. Added to this wariness was that I had never heard of this author (I have since discovered Ms James has a long list of books to offer).
The authors' writing style captured me instantly as I was drawn into this incredibly well crafted tale.

This book tells the story of its two main characters Alice Shoemaker and Clayton Miller. Clayton is a script writer whose career has hit rock bottom after his girlfriend leaves him for his ex-writing partner. In an attempt to lay low from some very bad publicity, Clayton's agent sends him to the moors of Derbyshire to hide out under an alias. This is where our two main characters meet as Alice, doing a favour for her neighbour, is hired as his cleaner. Alice is a voice-over artist who once held aspirations of becoming an actress. Shocked with Clayton's rough appearance and rude introduction she pretends to be Katya, a Latvian cleaner, who is equally rude in return.
Before long both have their real identities revealed and Alice reveals she grew up in the house that Clayton is hiding out in. This gets Clayton and Alice talking and they begin to share things about each other, things they haven't shared with anyone else before. And this is when the trouble starts...

The thing that keeps you enchanted with this book from beginning to end is the amazing characters the author has created. Alice and Clayton are well rounded with faults and flaws and you are given an amazing insight into their pasts, revealing how they came to be the people they are. Added to this is a strong cast of supporting characters, each of whom feels like a real person and not simply another background character in a book.

After beginning the book with wariness, I cannot believe just how much I loved this book! The author tells her story with a natural rhythm and her descriptions easily allow you to picture scenes. If I had to compare her style to another author, I would say she is similar to Katie Fforde with her lovable charismatic characters and quirkiness that only the English can pull off.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. This one is definitely a keeper and I am now going to eagerly hunt down the other books this author has written.

What a compelling story! It has been a while since a book kept me up half the night. I just could not put the book down. Alice a voice-over artist returns to her home town. Clayton a writer ends up in the same town after he has a melt down in public. The book is funny and at the same time tragic. Both in their own way are running away from their lives, but it is not until they confront their problems head-on that they will be able to move on. Many compelling secondary characters that I loved, and identified with. A great story that I can recommend.

Lately the romance genre has been slammed with heroines that are wimpy sex kittens who in the beginning of the book are strong heroic females until they meet an alpha male and then become blithering idiots. So not the case in this novel. From the beginning the author has you wrapped around her fingers. You are instantly enthralled with the plot and if you are like me will not put this book down until the end. The heroine Alice was an extraordinary woman who despite having to endure countless betrayals by her parents, her boyfriend, her step sister and then eventually a new lover she prevails and exhibits that put to the test a confident, humble, practical, and strong woman can withstand anything. I earnestly encourage readers to purchase this free ebook you will not be disappointed. I even loved the hero Clayton He can best be described as a heroic, gentlemen, dashing low life bastard (he does betray the heroine), but despite his faults, which he himself acknowledges, he strives to change for his Alice and eventually does not to just be good man for his woman, but as a human being as well. All n all a great read.

I really, really liked this book. The hero, a successful sit-com writer, is hiding from the press after an embarrassing public display to do with his old writing partner and his old girlfriend now with his partner.

His cleaning lady turns out to be the heroine who immediately, annoyed by his rudeness, pretends to be a Latvian maid. In reality she does voiceovers.

As the gentle romance unfolds, Alice tells her tale and Clayton tells his and they grow close. Then Clayton does a terrible thing.

When all the loose ends are tied up, I felt only the tiniest seed of dissatisfaction. The story implies anyone can be forgiven anything, no matter how terrible. But there was a mild satisfaction when the villains were shown to have got their comeuppance. Something that felt offkey when the forgiveness theme was preached so strongly.

Never mind. It was a really good read.

This was my first Erica James novel and it won't be my last. What a charming story! Well written, fun plot, witty dialogue and just plain entertaining! I usually do not enjoy stories where the backstory is told by one character telling the other what happened; there are more elegant ways to do it and usually this format just irritates me. But Ms. James did it so well that I sort of forgot the format altogether and went with the story. The main characters are interesting and flawed individuals but they are essentially good people which made it interesting to follow the development of their relationship. The villains were a bit too villainous but not this didn't spoil the book. The HEA made perfect sense. This was a very satisfying read and I am off to find other titles by this author!
