Why I Read This Book
My Mum gave me a physical copy of this book years ago and I just never got around to reading it. Then, I went to the library and got set up to use audiobooks. My commute to work isn’t too long so I’ve listened to this book when I’ve been out with the dogs, cleaning, waiting at appointments. Whenever I’ve had a spare moment I have been submerged in this story!
Shire Bliss? When romantic Mary meets Monty, handsome heir to a stately pile, hapiness seems assured. But as the mansion crumbles, passion wanes.
Banker’s wife Beth swaps Notting Hill for weekends at a bijou cottage, They only offered a smidgeon over the asking price. So why don’t the locals like them?
Eco-hag Morag is the terror of the village. She hates incomers, four-wheel drives, slug pellets and anyone between her and absolute power.
Uber-WAG Alexandra needs a footballer’s mansion – fast. There must be a Hello!-tastic place with pool, gym, champagne bar and helipad somewhere?
When these four face each other n a struggle over sex, power and money – not to mention allotments – village life is never the same again.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was an easy book to feel involved in and the characters were all relatively relate-able.
Have you read any other Wendy Holden books? Does this sound like a book you’d like to read? If so, why?
– Happy reading x
