Marcella Tartaglia is an ambitious, savvy magazine editor from New York city. While attending a wedding in England, she meets and falls head over designer heels in lust with William, a handsome, witty, self-assured, motorcyle-riding hunk. Is he too good to be true? She gradually discovers that there is quite a bit more to William than at first meets---and delights---the eye.)

"Speaking of work, let me in on the big secret. What is it that you do, William?"

"No secret." He grinned proudly. "I'm a vicar. The vicar of Bramble Moor. Did you wonder why I lived in a small village?"

"You like the countryside?" Marcella heckled, with a shrug. Her brain screamed, What!? A vicar?

So begins this funny, sometimes moving, and always lively romantic comedy. Norato tells the story from the both Marcella's and William's points of view, which makes this book an appealing choice for readers of both sexes. She managed to keep me in suspense, wondering how (or if!) the lead characters were going to make their relationship work, and make me laugh out loud. The balance of humor and poignancy is just right.
