I really enjoyed this book. It's very British (especially the language) and moves at a completely different pace than typical American romances. Instead of the two lead characters meeting and immediately falling into lust/love, the story moves at a slower and more believable pace. They meet when the heroine moves to a small village where the hero lives, and slowly get involved over the course of a year's time. Although there is an attraction, initially they don't act on it. They become friends, then the relationship deepens. I loved that there was no fake suspense, just two people getting to know each other, sometimes doing stupid things, and just generally acting real. I highly recommend this book.
