As a heatwave rolls into Little Perran, so does love. Billy Baxter, the has-been rock star, and Rafe Wylde, the hunky farm worker arrive, both destined to cause havoc as they touch the lives of the villagers.

Milly finds a new job and things start to look up for her, but she is unaware that a ghost from her past is looking for her.

Funny, Compassionate and Sizzling Sexy, a Village Romance is a page-turning summer read. A Village Romance is the second book in The Little Perran Romance series by Lynda Renham writing as Amy Perfect.

Review of a witch

In a Village Romance we return to the countryside town of Little Perran, and are greeted by some very well known villagers, including Frankie and Roux, the main characters from book one, ‘A Christmas Romance’.

This time, there are new faces amongst the old, Billy Baxter the ageing rock star, Ashley Wilmott-Fox an award-winning novelist and Rafe the sheep-shearer.

Billy should definitely have come with a warning, as he’s a bit of a Calamity Jane. From nearly driving into a funeral procession to running over Cynthia’s prize marrows, and calling an ambulance for a horsefly bite! He likes to think of himself as a big superstar. Unfortunately for him, the rest of the world doesn’t see him like that anymore, and the younger generation don’t even know who he is. His agent has sent him to the village to try and use it as therapy, and get him back in the limelight, but will his plan work?

Ashley (Ash), has moved to Little Perran to get away from the city life. He has had a rough few years, from being in a serious life-changing accident, to his fiancee walking out two months before their wedding, and his friends deserting him. He has lost the will to live, but can one resident help him to see the light at the end of the tunnel?

Rafe has come to Little Perran in search of the woman he fell in love with the moment he clapped eyes on her. There is just one problem, she has a boyfriend. Will he manage to get the girl of his dreams?

As well the newcomers, all the wonderful cast from the first book are back, and it was lovely to see what each of them had been up to. It was like meeting up with old friends again.

What I like about the Little Perran books is that Lynda puts so much effort in to making the stories believable, yet they are also full of excitement and lots of comical moments. You can just visualise yourself in the village, and I would love to be one of the residents, as everyone is so friendly, or nearly everyone is. It’s like one big family, and the sun always seems to shine.

A fun, summery read that takes you perfectly into the third and final instalment ‘A Summer Romance’, and will leave you satisfied that you have just read a perfect book.
