‘A Shot at Love’ is what happens when an American political speech-writer finds herself unceremoniously dumped from her high-stress, high-stakes job and realises her life needs to change. Josie Adams has had it with the backstabbing and slimy world of politics. And Upper Chewford is a million miles away from that. Spotting a beautiful woman in the quaint Cotswolds village takes her breath away – but is she ready to change everything for love? Harry runs the local newspaper, after escaping the rat-race in London. She’s been unlucky in love and can’t believe someone as gorgeous and accomplished as Josie would ever love her. Seeing how they navigated through their insecurities kept me reading, desperate to know how it would all pan out. The other characters around them made it a well-rounded story. I found Josie’s mum, Eugenie infuriating at times – but her uncle, Clive, was endearing and really rather sweet. The book is romantic, sexy and funny. It is the perfect first book in the series, which will soon be followed by stories by Clare Lydon and Harper Bliss. It is such a feel-good story. It made me happy and I love T.B. Markinson for taking me to such a wonderful place and letting me be a part of it. 

I was given this ARC for review.

  1. I had the pleasure of meeting T.B. in person at the GCLS con over the past week. She is a lovely, hardworking, type A personality, all the way. I expect she puts as much thought and emotion into her books as she does into IHeartLesfic, the sales she promotes there and into her overall passion for supporting women loving women fiction.

    1. It was wonderful meeting you in person, although I feel like we’ve been friends for years. Thanks for all of your support, Anne. It’s very much appreciated. And, you aren’t the first to call me a Type A personality 😉
