What a great page-turning treat this is! As ever, Phillipa Ashley has caught the zeitgeist, with her initial premise of a heroine who has to escape the media frenzy surrounding a reality TV show. She escapes from this metropolitan world, and her insensitive, narcissistic boyfriend, to a Cornwall that will be deliciously familiar to all who've known and loved the place (I could almost feel the sand between my toes, and see the blue sky - when it isn't lashing down with rain). She finds there (now this is where she parts company with reality) a stunningly gorgeous, strong, principled yet vulnerable hero. But one of them is hiding the truth, while the other is denying it, so how are they to get together? The question is answered in an exhilarating narrative, full of twists and turns.

The novel is pacey, witty, hilariously funny even in some parts, yet it can be touching as well, when the characters display the wounds that the past has dealt them. There are some great minor characters, human and canine, and some hilarious set pieces. And in the end (I hope this is not too great a spoiler) the values of Reality Show Britain receive a good kicking, and I let out a great cheer.

The story struggles to be cohesive and believable. It’s very predictable in places and there are also some editing mistakes.

Just Say Yes is a fabulous read. The descriptions of Cornwall are incredibly vivid and all the characters, human and canine, fairly leap of the page. The humour and underlying themes are very well done indeed and, coupled with the delicious romance at the heart of the book, make Phillipa Ashley's Just Say Yes a real winner!

Our heroine needs to get away and so she does - to the land of Cornish pasties, surfers and sand in your sandwiches. This is a winning holiday read, which I enjoyed.

Great book. Great story. Another wonderful book that I couldn't put down. Makes you feel you are actually there. I just love this one
