Summary

Treat yourself to a sparkling romantic comedy. Last of the Summer Moët is a bottle of champagne in book form! Wendy Holden's warm and funny comic heroine Laura Lake is back. And this time, she's gone rural.

Laura Lake, editor of glossy magazine Society, is always on the hunt for scandalous scoops to fill her pages. Now she's discovered a top-secret village in the English countryside where the rich and famous own weekend retreats. Where film stars, Turner-prize winners and billionaires park their helicopters outside the gastropub and buy £100 sourdough loaves from the deli. 

Outsiders are strictly forbidden. But luckily Laura's best friend Lulu, a logo-obsessed socialite with a heart as huge as her sunglasses, suddenly fancies a quiet life in the country.... 

But life in this enchanted rural idyll is harder than it looks. A brawl at the world's poshest pub quiz nearly brings down the government. And gossip from rehearsals of the midsummer pantomime threatens to tear the village apart. Can Laura write her exposé before the snobbish villagers blow her cover and suss her true identity?
