About The Book

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.

My Thoughts

I am not sure if you’ve ever been to a Christmas pantomime, but after reading this lovely story, I can’t wait to go to one!
Becky Finn has returned to her little village at the Yorkshire Dales, while she is waiting for her fiancé to find a job near her and move from London, she needs to keep her social life a little busy. So, she decides to help the community centre to gain some money and keep the local open. What could be more funny to win money than doing a Christmas pantomime based on the people living on Egglethwaite? Be prepared for a humorous story; witty dialogue, special characters and love, the perfect mix!
I finished this book in a snap; the characters were so funny and the story so addictive that I couldn’t put it down. Because Becky is a charming and lovely woman that without knowing it, will have to decide if the perfect man exists. Because, even if she already has the “perfect” man, she is starting to have questions about their relationship… is he the best for her? Or the co-star Marcus will be a better fit for her?
I liked how the story is not only based on Becky’s relation with her fiancé/co-star, the other characters of the pantimome have an important part on the book; with their eccentricities and needs, all together makes this the perfect fit.
This is the second book of the “A Love in the Dales’ Story” series but you can read it as standalone, but I am sure that you’ll feel so involved on the story of the village that you’ll want to read both of them!
If you are searching for a book to disconnect, enjoy and have a few laughs, this is for you, is The Perfect Fit!
