Looking for the perfect summer read? Then you’ll be happy to hear that Freya North, author of Pillow Talk, Secrets and Chances, has released a new novel. Her latest, Rumours, is a tale of love and redemption.
Stella Hutton is tasked with selling a grand estate in Hertfordshire, owned for generations by the Fortescue family, and currently in the hands of the eccentric Lady Lydia.
The threatened sale causes consternation with the villagers of Long Dansbury, who feel their lives are intertwined with the great house.
Xander Fletcher, who grew up on the estate, is one such resident. A former marathon runner and often the centre of attention when it comes to local gossip, Xander both irritates and intrigues Stella in equal measure, with sparks soon flying.
Stella has extra incentive to sell the country pile: the commission she’ll earn will be enough to mean a stable life for her and Will.
Rumours is about making a fresh start, standing up for what’s right and falling in love - which sounds like the ingredients of a perfect summer read.
