Summary

This book was originally published as Making Hay.

A new home, a new circle of friends, a new chance at happiness? Suzanna and Barney Blake are swapping city life for the countryside, determined to breathe new life into the Honeycote Arms and a marriage touched by tragedy.

Recently separated Ginny Tait is also seeking solace in country living, desperate to rein in her rambunctious twin daughters. They all think that moving to a calm, quiet and beautiful village in the Cotswolds will solve their problems. But in Honeycote, things are never quite as they appear....

Full of fun, warmth and style, A Country Life is the second book in the Honeycote trio.

Read by Rachel Atkins.

Potent ale from the brewery

Up to Veronica’s very high standards. A fascinating tale of 4/5 couples all intermingling and ending up with a very feasible climax, in more ways than one ( yes she can be a bit naughty )

Good

It's definitely a figurative page turner! A bit crasse in places and quite 'posh English', but still lots of interesting stories and character development.
The reader was great at voices and accents! Just varies volume a lot so sometimes I couldn't hear bits. I bought the 3rd one!

good

in this book there are a few couples to keep track of so you need to stay focused and know your character's.
once you know who is who the book is quite enjoyable.
emotions run high with a cot death separations and new romances.
Its all happening and entertaining.

Too many characters spoil the Book

Teaming with Different people the story flitted from one person’s story to the next. The stories kinda all tied-up at the end. Getting to the end was arduous. A bit of a mish-mash, & very much on a par with “ too many cooks spoil the broth”.
There were some good points & good descriptive pieces but somehow for me this author always seems to miss the mark.
