The course of true love never did run smooth!
Josie is taking planning her wedding a little too seriously. Harry, her fiance, is starting to feel left-out and overwhelmed... Josie decides a trip to her beautiful family home in Cornwall will be just the thing to get him in the mood, and Harry reluctantly agrees. It's going to be the first perfect opportunity for chief bridesmaid Diane and best man Ant to meet, too.
But they've hardly been in the car five minutes before they've declared all out war on one another.
As friendships are tested to the limit, Ant tries to lighten the mood. He suggests the four agree to a dare put forward by Freddie Puck, a famous TV hypnotist.
On Midsummer's Eve they must go to the spooky standing stones on the cliff and agree to be hypnotised.
Local mythology says that true love and lasting happiness belong to those who plight their troth at midnight on Midsummer's Eve at the standing stones. But as night falls and Freddie Puck begins to play his mind games Josie, Harry, Diane and Ant discover much more about themselves, those they care about and their destinies than anyone could have imagined ...
Inspired by Shakespeare's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM and packed with surprises and hugely enjoyable twists and turns this is a hilarious, fast-paced and absolutely magical read.
