After years living in London, costume shop owner Becky Finn is trying to build a new life for herself and fiancé Cole in her old home of Egglethwaite, a sleepy village in the Yorkshire Dales.
Keen to raise funds for the struggling village hall she loved as a child, Becky soon finds herself at the head of a colourful group intent on resurrecting Egglethwaite s Christmas pantomime. But, as she quickly discovers, there s more to panto than innuendo and slapped thighs.
As opening night grows closer, Becky starts to wonder if her embattled panto will ever make it to the stage and, with handsome co-star Marcus on the scene, if she s picked the right man for her after all.
Available to purchase in digital and paperback formats.
I thoroughly enjoyed this second story in a ‘Love in the Dales’ series. With the return of likeable characters from A Bicycle Made For two, there are a few new ones to fall in love with.
The main protagonist Becky has moved back to Egglethwaite and soon becomes wrapped up in village life. A sister of Cam, Tom’s partner means the reader gets to find out more from Lana, Stew and the other villagers. I enjoyed reading from a different characters perspective of the village.
Becky brings everyone together by the return of the pantomime in the village.
The Perfect Fit is a lovely story filled with love, humour and community spirit. Light hearted and with plenty of charm, I finished with a big smile as felt entranced by the love story.
A great read.
