Product Description

Product Description

A sparklingly brilliant short story from the wonderfully warm and wise Fern Britton – the Nation’s favourite TV presenter.

Fern Britton weaves a warm and witty short story set in Cornwall, full of mischief and fun!

Best friends Penny Leighton and Helen Merrifield have swapped their hectic London lives for the leisurely pace of life in the pretty Cornish village of Pendruggan.
Penny is in constant demand and juggling her life as a vicar’s wife alongside her day job as a hotshot TV producer is exhausting.
Helen is at the end of her tether. Cornwall has been battered by the worst storms in living memory and the roof of her little cottage is in a terrible state. Her other half, the brooding Piran, isn’t being much help.
The two women cook up a scheme to leave their Pendruggan men behind and get back to London for a weekend of blissful indulgence. But you know what they say about the best laid plans… Will Penny and Helen’s stolen weekend be everything they’ve dreamed of, or something else entirely?

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable short story 23 April 2014
By SM TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a sweet and light hearted story which is fairly short - I read it after dinner before bedtime!

It is not complicated in any way and is just a relaxing read. It's about two women who for different reasons are feeling they need a break - both busy women with their own problems. However, in their endeavours to escape for the weekend - well.... even the most perfect plans don't always go as expected....

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read 27 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have loved all of Fern's books, and as someone who spends a lot of time in Cornwall, quite near to where Fern has a property I like to consider where the fictional places she mentions are based on. She tells a very good story. I have now downloaded her latest book.
