Big in Britain by Emily Stone Davis

Thirty-one-year-old travel writer Jennifer Heath drops everything and heads to Edinburgh, Scotland at a moment’s notice to cover for her rehabbing best friend and fellow journalist Beverly Ayers. Rolling Stone magazine has green-lit Jennifer's take-over of their cover-feature about American ex-pat Michael Forrester, whose comedy and film career is about to blow up in the States.

Sinking in to Bev’s cushy first-class seat, Jen reminds herself she’s not on vacation. She’s working. But, “Small world!” as her mother would say-on the flight over, she reconnects with an old pal from summer camp, drinks her face off and gets roped into joining in on a Super-Model’s hen night pub crawl.

Her first morning in the UK, Jen wakes up, remembers a cute guy in a kilt, a rocking band, the smell of Scotch and not much else.

With determination and a few white lies, Jen vows to keep quirky Michael Forrester on task, an ex-flame at arms-length and her libido in check. She has a job to do; sex, love and magic are not on the agenda.


If Big in Britain were a film it would be a romantic-comedy-- with enough testosterone, Rock and Roll and raunchy humor to get your boyfriend to see it with you and pay for popcorn.
