The characters in the village are stereotypical and therefore very believable. Return to Book Page. Funny from start to finish.

A Rural Affair tells the story of a woman whose life is turned upside down not just by the death of her spouse but by his infidelity as well, and her efforts to recover and move on. Along the way, she picks up a young tural who might put Sam out of her head. I am not a chick lit kind of reader but this book was one I really enjoyed.

Feb 26, Sharon Redfern rated it really liked it. There were other parts that caused me to chuckle aloud. It has humor, friendships, love within families. This Could Change Everything. In all, the happy ending, the “villain’s” commuppance, the resolution of the heroine’s best friends’ problems and the whole tone of the book are immensely satisfying.

She has a wonderful relationship with her kids and true friendship with her gals. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers.

It’s something pages and after I had to give up as I was bored. It’s an enjoyable enough read I suppose but I doubt very much that I will remember a great deal about it a few weeks down the road! The main part of the story must be coming soon but really having to wait nearly pages in is too much. Down load the book only read the sample,can you explain why?


Poppy tries hard to be properly sad and grieving but she is happy to move on with her life especially when she finds out that perf Poppy Shilling has been fantasizing about killing off her prig of a husband for a while.

Very enjoyable read, like Jilly Cooper with less sex and Joanna Trollope with more laughs. In the early days she produced a baby with each book – but Catherine has written fifteen bestselling novels and is translated into eighteen languages. Poppy decides she is going to start getting involved in activities and joins the local church choir and the world’s worst book club.
