A sweet, slightly melancholy, utterly delightful romance set in the House of Lords between a civil servant and a spad working on an infrastructure bill. Might not sounds as romancey as the usual cupcake shop, but the setting works beautifully to give the characters hinterland, and really show how their work matters to them as well as their love lives--which in turn gives the romance more heft.

Strikingly gorgeous writing (author knows how to balance spare and lush), charming characters, deft observation: this is a fabulously assured novella, and I hope the author branches out to longer form because I'll read anything they care to write.

I had an ARC from the author.
