I never wait for Katie's books to come out in paperback and I don't beg for copies from the publisher either, I just order as soon as I see she has a new one coming up as I enjoy them so much. Light and sparkly and written with a deft touch there are no surprises, the reader knows all is going to end happily ever after, but they are such fun and such a pleasure to read.

Sophie Appleby is the non-academic in a family of high achievers who tended to look down their noses at her practical skills, no matter that these skills help keep the family and her cooking and mending saves them from penury as none of them seem to have a proper job, preferring to concentrate on higher things. To teach her ungrateful relatives a lesson and to show that they cannot manage without her, Sophie goes on a visit to a friend in New York. There she meets and befriends Mathilda, a spirited old lady who invites her to Connecticut for Thanksgiving, an invitation which does not go down well with her grandson, Luke, who thinks Sophie is on the make. When I tell you that Luke is tall, blonde and gorgeous and that 'his eyes were, in fact a sort of golden colour, with dark rings round the irises', and that he is totally hostile towards Sophie then you will know exactly what is going to happen. And it Does. And I loved it. I do wish Katie would produce two or even three books a year instead of the measly one. Not too much to ask is it........?

Sophie Apperly is the unintentional black sheep of her family, she isn't an academic like them, and all they seem to do is boss her around, leaving her with little choice but to do as they please. However, after they send her off to look after her Uncle Earl, Sophie realises her family are nothing but greedy money-grabbers so when her best friend Milly invites her to New York, Sophie jumps at the chance. Sophie loves being in New York and her holiday gets even better when she unintentionally befriends a spirited old British lady called Matilda. The only person not happy with Sophie's relationship with Matilda is Luke, Matilda's grandson because he believes Sophie to be nothing more than a chancer trying to get one over on his grandmother. After Sophie is invited to Thanksgiving, though, Luke is forced to concede Sophie will be there and tries to befriend her, but not without first asking Sophie for a favour of his own...

I mentioned in my Love Letters review that Katie appears to have a tried and tested formula that she uses for all of her books; the heroine of the book manages to get herself into a pickle of some sort, usually in the form of having to save something, meets the man she's destined to fall in love with at some point, they don't get along at the start but it all ends up rosy before something inevitably breaks them apart. After all, if it ain't broke, don't fix it and 13 books in I have yet to be bothered about the way in which Katie writes her books, in fact I like the fact they all follow the same format, it's rather comfortable and at least I know what I'm getting from Katie. It might be predictable and some people might not like it but it works for me and as long as Katie keeps writing books, I will keep reading them.

This is the first of Katie Fforde's books I have read, and I did so because I had read good reviews of her writing in general. I think this must have been the wrong book to start off with.

One expects this sort of book to be formulaic - heroine meets hero, misunderstandings happen, the pair eventually get together. But one also hopes for a strong read along the way. Sadly, this book is just that bit too formulaic and the characters failed to appeal as they should. Sophie is the younger daughter of academically, if not financially, successful parents, and the one child who has failed to meet her parent's expectations. Their attitude to her is almost Victorian in their failure to empathise with and continuous belittling of her own ambitions, and she has reached the age of 22 without apparently having stood up for herself at all. She has spent her entire life being nice. So nice that she has always let herself be walked over. It is pure chance that in once more doing as the family demands of her and going to look after her "Evil Uncle Eric" (so named by the money grasping family as he has the backbone to turn down requests for cash) she finds a kindred spirit. Sophie then decides it is time to stage a small rebellion by visiting a friend in New York, where she can also investigate some oil drilling rights, the existence of which she has unearthed in clearing up Uncle Eric's papers (hating as she does to have idle time on her hands). By this stage I was seriously frustrated by the demonstration of just how nice/energetic/helpful she was - how could such a person be such a failure in life that she scrapes by on waitressing and child-minding jobs that never last long?

Sophie lives at home with her parents and her brother and she is basically put down by them. Her older brother and sister have both left her. Her 3 siblings have done very well but Sophie has'nt. She takes on part-time jobs here and there so she can have some money. Her family put her down all the time and she has to do a lot around the house. When her uncle Eric needs someone to look after him for a couple of weeks her mother tells him she will do it. Her family think he has got a lot of money and they want some of it.

Sophie goes and stays with her uncle and the both get on really well. Sophie does some tidying in the house and she comes across some paperwork to do with oil. Her uncle says she can investigate and see if the family are sitting on a little gold mine.

When Sophie returns to her parents she has had enough of them putting her down so she goes out to America to be with her best friend Milly for a while. While she is out there she makes friends with an old lady Matilda and her grandson Luke. While in America she tires to sort out her Uncle's oil project for him but finds out she needs to be back in the UK. Matilda also wants her to find out about a house for her also when she returns to the UK.

Sophie returns to the UK and Luke also comes to help her sort out her Uncle's oil project and also find the house for Matilda. Sophie and Luke grow very close but it's not all plain sailing as one of Luke's work collegues turn's up from America and throw's a spanner in the works.

This book is lovely to read as it's not all set in America it's also set in Cornwall and you really get a feel you are there. Katie Fforde has done it again writing another brilliant book. I just didn't want it to end.
