Do you know, @MaryJayneBaker never fails to put a smile on my face. @TheMirrorBooks have an absolute star in this lady.
After years living in London, costume shop owner Becky Finn is trying to build a new life for herself and fiancé Cole in her old home of Egglethwaite, a sleepy village in the Yorkshire Dales.
Keen to raise funds for the struggling village hall she loved as a child, Becky soon finds herself at the head of a colourful group intent on resurrecting Egglethwaite s Christmas pantomime. But, as she quickly discovers, there’s more to panto than innuendo and slapped thighs.
As opening night grows closer, Becky starts to wonder if her embattled panto will ever make it to the stage and, with handsome co-star Marcus on the scene, if she s picked the right man for her after all.
I started reading this book and felt I’d met an old friend. Having read “A Bicycle Made For Two” I could associate with some of the characters and loved meeting the new ones.
I adore the Yorkshire charm and wit, and the Pantomime rehearsals where so funny, I felt as if I were there!
It’s such a heartwarming story with VERY laugh out loud moments in typical Mary Jayne Baker style. If you know someone, who needs cheering up, just purchase this book. I guarantee it will be the best tonic ever.
I give this book 5*

This book really had a good feel about it. Jen mentions lots of great sounding restaurants and bars and other places where the main character hangs out. I wish these places were on my doorstep!
I like Katie ( the main character) she’s kind of cleverly geeky and likeable. The story was fast paced and kept me guessing what would happen until the very end too.
This book is about love and friendship and a comfy sunshine read, I read it in my garden while sipping iced coffee. Soooo rock n roll.
Katie Kendall has everything going for her. She wrote a bestselling novel and now it’s being made into a film. She should be walking on air but, instead, her life seems to be spiraling out of control. Her roommate (ahem, husband) completely checks out and her life is bombarded by a completely new cast of characters including a famous Hollywood director and a heartthrob who anyone would kill to spend time with!
All Katie wants is a place where she feels at home but has her success made that impossible?
I rate this book 5/5
