Publisher's Summary

Where have all the men gone? Faced with 25,000 more women than men in London and gleeful media reports that it's statistically more likely for single women to be murdered than get married, Katie has reached an all-time low. But all is not lost....

Another hilarious high-concept romantic comedy from Jenny Colgan.

While Katie's glad it's not a man's world anymore, she'd be quite pleased if there were more men in it - or at least single ones, anyway.

More likely to get murdered than married, according to gleeful media reports, Katie resigns herself to the fact there's no sex in the city and heads for the hills - or the Scottish Highlands, to be precise.

Despite the fact she's never been a girl for wellies and Fairlish is in the middle of nowhere, the tiny town does have one major draw: men. Lots of them. But while Katie relishes the chance to do battle with armies of admirers, she's not reckoned on going head to head with her grumpy new boss, Harry; shadowy developers intent on destroying the beautiful countryside; and Mrs. McClockerty, the least suitable hotelier since Norman Bates.

At least there's the local eye candy to distract her, including gorgeous newshound Iain. But he is at loggerheads with Harry, and Harry despises her. Life in the country might not be one big roll in the hay, but can Katie ever turn her back on the delights of Fairlish and return to city life?

    "Awful"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better plot and likeable characters


    What was most disappointing about Jenny Colgan’s story?

    Horrible girls. Common, chav, sexist, ageist, sizeist. Nothing to like about them.


    What didn’t you like about Helen McAlpine’s performance?

    OK. But lots of words mis-pronounced. And a mistake of name that was left in. Expressions spoken and not put into play.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boring and dull. Girls are horrible. Dull story. Just awful.


    Any additional comments?

    Cannot not recommend this enough. Terrible writing.

    "Fantastic narration"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)


    Any additional comments?

    A very far-fetched and silly plot, but with lots of laugh out loud moments and a satisfying ending. Helen McAlpine's narration was absolutely superb (apart from the famous people who strayed into the story - she's no mimic!)
