Just a boy standing in front of a girl…
Steve Mason returns from Hollywood after 15 years to catch up with his sister, Ruby. He’s miserable because the woman he was planning on marrying has dumped him.
He’s now worried that with his A-list celebrity status he won’t find a woman who genuinely loves him. Ruby devises a plan to disguise Steve, so that he is unrecognisable as the famous Hollywood actor, in a hope to help him find true love. It worked for Clark Kent, right?
As Steve searches for his not-so-perfect woman and has a taste of normality, his relationship develops with his sister. But will he find the right woman before he has to head back to his real life in Hollywood?
Having recently split from his fiance, his movie co-star, Hollywood actor Steve Mason decides that he needs to get away from it all and back to his roots so sets off on a clandestine journey to his hometown of Bristol. There we just wants to spend time with his little sister Ruby and make up for not being there for her when she needed him the most although it wasn't his choice that he wasn't.
Ruby was such a sweetheart who would do anything for the big brother she idolised, she wanted nothing more than for him to meet a normal woman to fall in love with so she comes up with an ingenious plan which is the basis of the novel. So can a movie superstar ever lead a normal life out of the public eye? And will Steve be able to help Ruby to come to terms with her grief and help her to move on with her own life?
I loved the fact that One Fine Day was set in Bristol as a lot of the novels I have read recently based in the south have either been down in Cornwall or in London so it was refreshing to read a novel set in the west country. And with Bristol being just over an hour away from where I live I have visited the city many times so was able to identify with some of the places mentioned.
Overall One Fine Day was a feel-good read and although there were no were no real surprises, as you knew almost from the start where the storyline was heading, it was still a sweet romance that had you routing for a happy ever after for them all.
I received a review copy of One Fine Day from the publisher via NetGalley.
