Oxford-set romance is just the ticket!

A Late Summer Night's DreamA Late Summer Night’s Dream by Eleanor Harkstead & Catherine Curzon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I do love the way these two write together. Usually, it’s historical, but this one’s contemporary and set amid Oxford’s dreaming spires.

The idea behind this one just tickled me, a mix up over theatre seats turns into a pie and mash date between PhD student Simeon and Anthony, the guy he thought was sitting in his seat.

Things look like they’re moving to the start of something special but Anthony is older than Simeon and he lost his husband to brain cancer just four years earlier and he has a touch of the second thoughts.

Thankfully, in the words of the immortal bard, ‘all’s well that ends well’ and a coincidental meeting a short while later puts them both back in each other’s orbit and a second chance begins.

These books are always so very English in feel and this one’s no different, it’s just a delightful romance.
