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.

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!

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 )
