Tess Tennant is quintessentially British: she wears Wellingtons and cardigans, teaches classics and Latin, and lives in a little cottage in the charming town of Langford. Having just returned to her hometown after a disappointing decade in London, she hopes that the quaint village-and her childhood friend and soul mate, Adam-will cure her of her heartache and ennui. But life gets predictably complicated when Adam begins dating Tess's glamorous housemate. Despite the Italian American Adonis whom Tess meets on a tour of Rome, the complexities increase as the past comes back to haunt Tess, Adam, and the rest of the town. Old family secrets, small-town drama, and overturned love lives propel the reader forward. VERDICT Evans's fourth novel (after The Love of Her Life) is as British as its heroine. For Anglophiles who enjoy a little romance, many plot twists, and multiple storylines, this best-friends-fall-in-love novel will make a satisfying summer read.-Anika Fajardo, St. Catherine Univ.
