Billy and Me – Giovanna Fletcher

Sophie May has a secret. One that she’s successfully kept for years. It’s meant that she’s had to give up her dreams of going to university and travelling the world to stay in her little village, living with her mum and working in the local teashop.

But then she meets the gorgeous Billy – an actor with ambitions to make it to the top. And when they fall in love, Sophie is whisked away from the comfort of her life into Billy’s glamorous – but ruthless – world. Their relationship throws Sophie right into the spotlight after years of shying away from attention. Can she handle the constant scrutiny that comes with being with Billy? And most of all, is she ready for her secret heartbreak to be discovered and shared with the nation?

Charming, heartwarming and utterly romantic, Billy and Me will completely capture your heart.

Billy and Me – WHSmith Review

When a film crew come to the village to shoot Pride and Prejudice, bringing a swarm of Hollywood stars with them, painfully shy Sophie is quite happy to keep her head down and cross her fingers that they don’t ruin one of her favourite books. So when a handsome stranger starts visiting the tea shop and making Sophie blush with his charming banter, it doesn’t cross her mind who he might be. When she finally discovers that the stranger is none other than Hollywood actor Billy Buskin, she can’t believe she’s been plain old flour-covered Sophie in front of him. But it seems that’s exactly what Billy likes about her and it isn’t long before they’ve had the perfect first date. But as things continue to go well with Billy, can Sophie handle the attention and scrutiny that comes with dating a celebrity? And how long will Sophie be able to protect the painful secrets from her past with the spotlight shining on her?

Wonderfully warm and uplifting, Billy and Me pulls us into Sophie’s quaint and charming world effortlessly before making us feel as uncomfortable and out-of-place in Billy’s ruthless showbiz world as she does. Touching upon panic attacks, grief and mental health issues, Giovanna Fletcher provides a comforting and heart-felt look at anxiety and self-worth with characters that feel relatable and honest. Surely we’ve all dreamt of dating a celebrity at some point, and Billy and Me gives us a chance to find out what it’s really like through Sophie’s eyes.
