Summary

When Rob MacGregor is picked as the new presenter of a struggling gardening programme, he quickly becomes a favourite with everyone. And that's half his trouble...

Having a gardener who's also a sex symbol might be a godsend for the TV bosses, but there are plenty of others who are not so happy: Bertie Lightfoot for one, the expert Rob replaced; Guy D'Arcy, another TV rival and insatiable womaniser; and most importantly Rob's fiery girlfriend, Katherine -- an investigative journalist on the local paper. As Rob becomes more and more wrapped up in his career, and she is involved in a big story for the paper, the relationship comes under strain. Especially when a misunderstanding causes sparks to fly and things get really complicated...

Very entertaining

I loved listening to the audible version of this book. Once again narrated by the author himself, Alan brought the book alive and the accents and witty remarks made me smile. A very enjoyable story. Hope there are plenty more like this to follow.

Abridgement Causing Disappointment

Years ago I started reading this book and thought it was great, but it became clear from listening to this audio version; that the story has been abridged and my favourite parts are missing. If you haven’t read the book before, you would be non-the-wiser and will enjoy it.
Those interested in gardening and TV presenting will like this.
