3 stars for this cute novella with one BIG problem. I'm surprised that other reviewers haven't noticed this: there are no, zero, nil skunks in the wild in England! I don't want to give anything away, but the hero, an artist, draws a picture of a skunk for the heroine at 2 major plot turning points in the story. However, the likelihood of his knowing what a skunk looks like is minimal - maybe he's seen a stuffed example in a museum? - and even smaller for the heroine, who has lived an extremely restricted and protected life - she has never been away from Richmond (a suburb of London) and London. Without this problem I probably would have given the story 4 stars.
