Only in America

Dominic Holland

I just loved this book and was sorry when it ended. A real modern day, feel-good fairytale which has everything - suspense, romance and humour. Very light and easy to read, perfect for the beach.

Extract

At 6.15 Milly's alarm radio obediently came to life.

"... that was the latest single from Ireland's first family, the Corrs ...."

She hit the snooze button. The only good thing about the morning so far was that she'd managed to miss the latest effort by the Corrs, another droning ballad no doubt, churned out by beautiful women singing inexplicably about not being loved. Reluctantly she broke her heat chamber and poked a foot out from under the duvet and then snatched it back again. It was bloody freezing. These days her radiators seemed to generate more noise than heat. She had a vague idea that some kind of bleeding was required, but of what and from where was a complete mystery.
