Here is my best explanation:

'novel' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'care to wander round british city' is the wordplay.
'to wander' indicates an anagram.
'round' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'british' becomes 'b' (abbreviation e.g. in 'BBC').
'city' becomes 'ec' (the City of London postcode).
'care' is an anagram of 'reca'.
'b'+'ec'='bec'
'reca' placed around 'bec' is 'REBECCA'.

'in' is the link.
