First in a new romantic comedy series, Love in the Dales, set in a beautiful Yorkshire village.  Chock-full of colourful characters, dry wit and a bit of love and passion for good measure.

In a lost corner of the Yorkshire Dales, Lana Donati runs a medieval-themed restaurant with her brother. As a distraction to help them get over losing the father they loved dearly, and as a tribute to his passion for the beautiful area they live in, Lana hatches a plan to boost business for everyone by having the Grand Départ route pass through their village. This entails getting the small community to work together to convince the decision-makers that their beloved village is Tour material. Not an easy task when the people involved include Lana’s shy, unlucky-in-love brother Tom, the man-eating WI chair Yolanda, bickering spouses Gerry and Sue, arrogant celebrity Harper Brady, and Lana’s (attractive) arch-nemesis, former pro-cyclist turned bike shop owner Stewart McLean, whose offbeat ideas might just cost them everything. From the author of  Meet Me at the Lighthouse, a rural romance for lovers of Fiona Gibson and Sue Moorcroft.


'A wonderful book with a great story and a sparky, unusual voice. I loved it!’ Katie Fforde

'A love story in its widest sense, this story takes an affectionate, humorous and often moving look at the ties that bind us as we move through life... Full of heart, humour and larger-than-life characters...' Debbie Johnson
