Summary
Vivian Forest has been out of the country a grand total of one time, so when she gets the chance to tag along on her daughter Maddie's work trip to England to style a royal family member, she can't refuse. She's excited to spend the holidays taking in the magnificent British sights, but what she doesn't expect is to become instantly attracted to a certain private secretary, his charming accent, and unyielding formality.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When Maddie Forest (last seen in The Wedding Party, 2019) gets a job styling an English Duchess for the holidays, she convinces her overworked mom, Vivian, to join her at Sycamore Cottage in the English countryside. Vivian is too busy as a hospital social worker to think about much more than whether or not she's ready to take on her boss's job when she retires. She needs a break, so she reluctantly allows Maddie to force her into some spontaneity. Malcolm Hudson, private secretary to the Queen, theoretically has duties at neighboring Sandringham House, but he can't seem to stop himself from volunteering to be Vivian's tour guide, then horseback riding instructor, then date to the Christmas Eve dinner. Divorced protagonists in their fifties are rare enough in mainstream romance; add the fact that Vivian knows she's still got it and some frank conversations about race and the royal family (plus Guillory's stellar reputation), and readers will forgive any shortcomings in this timely holiday romp.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Guillory's romance star keeps rising, and this diverting tale featuring older characters is sure to enhance readers' holiday spirit.--Susan Maguire Copyright 2010 Booklist"
