While studying dead languages, Shari Diamond, who has a secret penchant for British men despite her mother's urgings to find a nice Jewish boy, goes head-to-head with her latest conquest, Kit the Brit, when she discovers that he is withholding information that is relevant to the completion of her Ph.D. Original.

Q: What turns thirty-five-year-old graduate student Shari Diamond on?
A: Anything British.

Forget tall, dark and handsome. For Shari there’s only tall, pasty and from Across the Pond (despite her aunt’s advice to find a nice Jewish boy). Ever since Shari first happened upon Christopher Robin in her childhood reading, she’s had a passion for all things Anglo-Saxon. First it was books, then it was blokes, now…well, it’s still blokes.

Unbeknownst to her, Kit, Shari’s latest British conquest (and decidedly not a Jew), also happens to be her biggest competition in her search to find the last-known speaker of a language close to extinction. Shari’s spent four years trying to find this guy so she can complete her Ph.D. and now Kit has beaten her to the punch? When she learns that there might be more (and less) to Kit than meets the eye, will this Anglophile turn her back on the land of tea and crumpets once and for all?

This was a very light read that was, for the most part enjoyable. The plot was a bit thin at times and the characters were fairly predictable, but if you are looking for a good way to pass a few hours on a plane, then this book would do the job.
