Rumour has it by Jill Mansell

Rumour Has It When newly single Tilly Cole impulsively quits her London job for a fresh start in the small town of Roxborough she finds she's arrived in a hotbed of gossip, intrigue and rampant rivalry for the most desirable men. Tilly has no intention of joining in – she's just happy with her new Girl Friday job.
Then she meets Jack Lucas.
Jack is irresistible… and he's got his eye on Tilly. But there are shocking rumours about his wicked reputation. Tilly doesn’t want to be just another notch on anyone's bedpost. But is she being mature and sensible – or is she running away from the love of her life?

Yes it was predictable, yes the characters were stereotypical, and yes everyone was unbelievably attractive, interesting and financially impressive - but damn it - I really like Jill Mansell's books. She manages to make you actually care about the happy ending and this one was highly romantic. Thoroughly appropriate weekend reading!

Rating - I give this 4/5
