Description

Single, thritysomething Thea traded her promising career as a photographer for the quiet countryside of the English Cotswalds. But when she meets a promising, sexy Irish painter while vacationing in Provence, her creative spirit is unexpectedly reawakened.
Impressed by Rory's charm, but even more taken by his talent, Thea is determined to showcase his paintings for the art world. Resisting his sex appeal, convincing him to forgo the London art scene, and transforming an abandoned building into a cutting-edge gallery in the less-than-hip countryside all give Thea more of a challenge than she bargained for.
Add to the mix a group of old friends, some reluctant teens, a passel of puppies, and a new romantic prospect or two, and Katie Fforde's latest novel delivers art, friendship, love, sex, and delicious new beginnings.

        July 1, 2002
        This second offering from the author of "Second Thyme Around" (2001) is a breezy romance that combines a little business, a little travel, and a little art into a diverting and unchallenging summer read. Spunky heroine Thea runs a boardinghouse for students in Gloucestershire. During a spur-of-the-moment trip to France to accompany a friend, she meets an Irish artist, falls in love with his work, though not with him, and rearranges her life to open a gallery to show his paintings. Large groups of people seem always to be arriving unexpectedly, needing to be fed and housed. Puppies are born, confusion and misunderstanding reign, and unrequited love looms, but all is sorted out to a successful conclusion in the end. Readers seeking effortless entertainment won't mind the lack of motivation and deep thought, but they may be put off by British colloquialisms, including one that could be viewed as so "politically incorrect" as to be offensive.
