Summary
A romantic comedy on Hetty, a woman house-sitting a mansion for a hospitalized uncle in England. On learning that Connor, a nephew, intends to raze it upon inheritance, Hetty organizes a campaign to preserve the mansion and it is war between niece and nephew, until love intervenes
Summary
This is the story of Hettie Longden, freshly dumped and broken-hearted, who agrees to look after her great-uncle's long-abandoned mansion in the countryside. She is at something of a life-time low: no job, no lover, no prospects, and no particular talent for resuscitating crumbling estates. So she hopes for nothing more than a good old-fashioned escape. What she finds, though, is a cast of quirky and ever-present neighbors, a couple of sensitive New-Age guys, some very humorless bank officials, two disarming little canines, one gracious, dilapidated, romantic old house--and, just maybe, enough elbow grease to polish everything up again
