Delilah's been proposed to by her long lime live-in boyfriend. The thing is, she no longer loves him and is bored with Bradford, where she has lived all her life, and him. Delilah tries on her not-engagement ring, a copy of Princess Diana's/Kate Middleton's engagement ring, and gets it stuck on her finger. She's taken to the ER where she runs into this handsome stranger, Charlie, who gives her his card and invites her to contact him when she gets to London. Being smitten with him, she decided to chuck in her job, and leave Bradford for London. Once in London, she meets Sam and through him. Vivienne, and things start going her way. She runs into Charlie (talk about serendipity), and the dreams of Charlie being her prince charming seem to start coming true.
It was a good entertaining story, but it took me some time to get involved in it. Some parts of the book were very easy to predict, some which were pleasant surprises, and parts which were a little unclear due to the inclusion of tertiary characters. I loved the Tom Jones connection. Delilah is named for his song by her mother who was a huge fan of his. The inclusion of the lyrics for "Delilah", "Help Yourself", "It's Not Unusual", and "What's New Pussycat?" is well placed and enhances the storyline. It's easy to see how Ms. Potter has improved with time and subsequent books.
