This is such a very light hearted read. This book for me makes a change away from the war years. It's so nice to follow Megan and Ben a man that she hardly knows and has married on impulse and they go from England to Australia. You must read this story to enjoy it. You can never go wrong with an Anna Jacobs book. A recommended 5 star read from me.

So, the plot of this book is what drew me in, it is really intriguing. Megan was orphaned as a child and went to live with her aunt, uncle and cousin. Despite adoring her new family as an adult she decides to return to the area of her childhood. During her journeys, she accidentally ends up rescuing Ben from being pick-pocketed. In return, they end up spending a few days together and the attraction between them grows. When Ben unveils he has to move away to Australia she is heartbroken, but then ...more

Megan the Whiner. First the book has NO sex. She has married the rich sexy, stranger and they have jumped on a plane. On the wedding night, the scene is set and we find out that she has the "V" problem. Great! The pressure is on, for him to make it good. ** Spoiler alert - cut to the morning. No sex scenes please, we are British. What a disappointment to set the scene and not write it. And give us nothing afterward!
So his old girl friend who is married to a good friend of his, is trying it on an

I should have realised by the title it was going to be 'one of those' books but I persevered as I did enjoy the authors other book with the family life and a bit of mystery and crime in it. If you like a soppy love story this is for you or just a quick 'don't need to concentrate' holiday read go for it. The storyline could have gone either way in the end but it was just what I'd expected. No surprises here!

Going on the title, it is one of those books that has stereotypical scenarios in it. It is a quick read (done in 2 days) but an easy read.
Megan and Ben get married within a couple of weeks of meeting each other and they move to Australia. Ben is a bit of a conniving man which comes out in the story.
