The Runaway Actress by Victoria Connelly

Connie Gordon is a beautiful, successful Hollywood actress, who on the outside seems to have it all. But inside Connie is deeply unhappy, she has been in the acting business since she was six years old and she has become tired of the lifestyle that goes with it, the constant diets and the cheating boyfriends. It also feels like she is living out her mother’s dream of being an actress.

Connie longs to escape; to a place she can just lose herself, to where she will have some peace and quiet. So when she receives an invite from her fan club in Scotland. She decides to go and visit, to what she thinks is a small sleepy Scottish village called Lochnabrae.

When she arrives in Lochnabrae and meets the locals including her biggest fan Maggie and a reclusive writer called Alistair, Connie finds herself thrown into village life and before she knows it she is involved with the village amateur dramatic society.

Will the sleepy village of Lochnabrae turn out just to be as dramatic and chaotic as the life she has been living in Hollywood?

If you are looking for the perfect book to take to read on your summer holiday then this book is just that. It is a really good fun and entertaining read. This book is just one of those nice care free stories that you can just lose yourself in and is a delight to read. I really enjoyed reading this book. 

Victoria Connelly grew up in Norfolk. After graduating, she worked her way through a number of jobs before becoming a teacher in North Yorkshire. In 2000 she got married in a medieval castle in the Yorkshire Dales and moved to London. After writing articles and short stories, a bidding war between five publishers in Germany resulted in a book deal and the first of three novels published was made into a film.

Her first novel to be published in the UK Molly’s Millions (2009) was a Top Ten e-book bestseller. Victoria has also written a trilogy about Jane Austen addicts. Victoria and her husband recently left London for a cottage in rural Suffolk, where she lives with a Springer spaniel and a brood of rescued battery hens.
