After having been betrayed by her partner of thirteen years, Janalyn isn't looking for another relationship, especially not one separated by miles of ocean. But when she travels to Devon, England, for a conference and meets a sporty Brit named Robyn, desires Janalyn thought were permanently lost are suddenly back and stronger than ever. Despite cultural differences, poking fun at each other's use of the English language, and Robyn coming off as a player, Janalyn can't help the attraction she feels, no matter how hard she tries. Can she and Robyn find a common ground upon which to make a life together? Will Janalyn throw caution to the wind and risk her heart again? If Janalyn does indeed venture across the pond, will love be her life preserver?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my cup of tea The synopsis for this story sounded promising but the book itself left me disappointed. Main character Janalyn came across as obsessive (in her long term relationship she was frequently behaving like a Stepford wife/partner), hypocritical in her actions versus her proclaimed values, and with little character development in the course of the book. The supporting characters to her story were either unlikable or unbelievable (or both) which made it very hard to read, and ultimately finish, the book. I actually put it down every few chapters (and read other books) before returning to it again and hoping that would help in some way (it didn’t). I suppose fans of rom coms might find this more enjoyable than I did but it truly was not my cup of tea. There was great potential to exploit the comedic and educational possibilities by highlighting the differences between Americans and Brits in language and culture, and it was touched on briefly but could have been further developed. The same could be said for the opportunity to highlight and contrast the beauty of the Devon area in the UK versus New York City but again it was not given much attention overall. I am open to reading more of this author’s work in the future to see if any of it appeals to me. Sadly this one did not.
