The storyline is unique and very well done. Set in a mansion, fans of Downton will love this, but so will non-fans as the characters are so well written, you really care about them.
The antics of Gemma - who is standing in for her posh flatmate Abbey - will make you laugh out loud, but it also has some emotional moments in it too. It's a book that I feel crosses several genres because it has something for everyone. Historical romance readers will enjoy it because of the setting, but so will readers of women's fiction and chicklit. It's a great all rounder, which is often hard for a writer to do, but Samantha Tonge has managed it superbly.
The only thing that stops me giving this 5 stars, is Gemma's constant use of the word 'mega' which I found irritating. But other readers - especially younger ones - may not mind it.
A great book for your Christmas stocking, or as a present for that 'hard to buy' for person in your life!
