I hadn't read anything from Sue Margolis before, but I have to say that I will in the future. With typical British humor and wit, I literally laughed out loud several times while reading this book.

Abby Crompton worked incredibly hard to build her floral business, and now she's engaged to a handsome, wealthy corporate lawyer--
Toby. On the way to meet her future mother-in-law, Abby gets trapped in an elevator with a stranger. His name is Dan, and he helps her get through the blind panic of being stuck in the elevator. In the meantime, Abby reveals some incredibly personal information about her sex life with Dan. Later, she's humiliated when she realizes what she's done. But thinking that she'll never see him again, she heads off to dinner to meet her mother-in-law looking rather shabby and puts the whole incident out of her mind.

Abby's flower shop has been chosen to be featured in an independent film. When the director and his scout show up, it's Dan--the guy from the elevator. Dan is filming a romantic comedy, and Abby's shop makes the perfect backdrop.

When Abby discovers Toby's shocking secret, Dan is there with a shoulder to lean on. But Dan has a few secrets of his own.

One complaint I had with the ending: Everything wraps up a little too neatly and perfectly and a little too fast.

Margolis weaves a clever tale with strong secondary characters, including Martin (Abby's assistant), Soph (Abby's best friend), and Christian (a floral competitor and Martin's former lover). She also includes a couple of subplots, one of which is the custody battle over a St. Bernard. If you enjoy chick lit--and, in particular, British chick lit--you're going to love this book.
