Love Letters

Has Laura found her leading man? A wonderfully romantic novel from the No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match.

With the bookshop where she works about to close, hopeless romantic Laura Horsley, in a moment of uncharacteristic recklessness, finds herself agreeing to help organise a literary festival deep in the heart of the English countryside.

But her initial excitement is rapidly followed by a mounting sense of panic when reality sinks in and she realises just how much work is involved – especially when an innocent mistake leads the festival committee to mistakenly believe that Laura is a personal friend of the author at the top of their wish-list. Laura might have been secretly infatuated with the infamous Dermot Flynn ever since she studied him at university, but travelling to Ireland to persuade the notorious recluse to come out of hiding is another matter.

Determined to rise to the challenge she sets off to meet her literary hero. But all too soon she's confronted with more than she bargained for – Dermot the man is maddening, temperamental and up to his ears in a nasty case of writer's block. But he's also infuriatingly attractive – and, apparently, out to add Laura to his list of conquests...

Critics Reviews

“A great fun countryside romp with engaging characters and a narrative thrust that had me hooked to the end”

Daily Mail

“A sweet and endearing read”

News of the World

“Fforde's cosy style is strangely comforting and Laura's transformation from ingénue to confident and lustful young woman makes for an enjoyable summer read”

Daily Telegraph

I absolutely loved this book and couldn't put it down, now I'm sad that I have finished it, a short story about them might be nice with their kids in it.

I love this book!!!!! It's my first of your many novels and I can't wait to get started on your others!!! I honestly could not put it down! One night I was even up till 3:30 a.m. reading (the night before was around 2:30 a.m.) and the moment I got up I continued to read until I had finished the book!!! I definitely recommend this book to any one who love's a steamy romance with some complications of course but will leave you grinning from ear to ear!
