Reluctantly agreeing to her husband's request for a divorce after an unfortunate incident with a frying pan, Charlie Rhymer returns to her family home to find a less-than-serene atmosphere before encountering brooding actor Mace North.

McMillan Palgrave
A fast and funny contemporary novel set in Bronte country in which recently divorced Charlotte Rhymer discovers that when it comes to dating for the over 40's, it's every woman for herself.

Charlotte—Charlie—Rhymer’s husband wants a divorce. Charlie isn’t sure what she wants, but after the incident with the frying pan, even she has to concede that their differences may be irreconcilable after all. Returning home to her native Yorkshire and the bosom of her family seemed like a good idea at the time. Even if Charlie’s father has never quite forgiven Charlie or her siblings (Anne, Emily and Branwell) for failing to live up to their more literary (as in Bronte) namesakes.

Upvale Parsonage, the family home to which Charlie has retreated, is presided over by her sister Em. Em’s hobbies are composing inspirational verses, dabbling in the Ancient Black Arts, and fighting off the incursions of Father’s latest mistress. When the current mistress actually moves in, family loyalties are sorely tried. Still, Charlie is determined to bounce back from disaster and strike a blow for deserted older wives everywhere. But when she meets brooding actor Mace North, she realizes that when it comes to dating for the over-forty crowd, female solidarity be damned—it’s every woman for herself!

Sure to delight both Bronte fans and readers who like a good laugh with their romance, Trisha Ashley’s first book to be published in the United States is a welcome treat.

The author has a completely quirky sense of humour, but while you read the book you're thinking "I'd love to meet a family just like this."
