From the Back Cover:

Thea's Love Life is a Mess...
Life as a globetrotting photojournalist had its moments for Thea Orville-until a shifty scheme by her boyfriend ruins her career. For Thea, giving the boot to her man feels good. Selling her London flat to open a rooming house feels better-at first. Then reality sets in...and thirty-something Thea realizes she's a bit young to be a house matron. What she needs is a little diversion...

...Until a Sexy Stranger Comes Along...
On a lark, Thea accepts her friend's offer to go to France for an art tour. A little wine, a little Cézanne-what could be better? For starters, meeting a devilishly handsome artist named Rory. Somehow, Thea lets Rory convince her to stay with him until she sorts things out. But when Thea sees Rory's paintings, everything suddenly makes sense.

...And Makes Cleaning Up a Pleasure...
Thea knows that bringing Rory's spectacular paintings into London's art world would be just the challenge she's looking for. So where does that leave her love life? Well, romance has a funny way of working itself out...just when-and how-you least expect it...

"Katie Fforde's unique spin on romantic comedy is a blend of the sweet, the sad, and the sexy."
-Patricia Gaffney, author of The Saving Graces and Flight Lessons

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. There s an art to choosing men, but Thea s just discovering it. This is a wonderfully romantic novel from the No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match. Fed up with looking after a houseful of students, Thea Orville throws caution to the winds and takes off to Ireland with Rory, a charming but feckless artist. But Thea s old life isn t so easily cut off. The arrival of Molly, her bossy friend, demanding to see Rory s stunning paintings (and to find out what Thea is up to) is bad enough, but why did she have to bring Petal, Thea s most annoying lodger, along for the ride? And worst of all, Petal is accompanied by her uncle, the enigmatic Ben, a man Thea has sworn never to like. The timing is terrible - Rory s dog is about to have puppies - but even more alarming is that the more Rory pursues Thea, the more maddeningly attractive she finds Ben.
