Having spent many years reading and, indeed, writing, only ‘serious’ literature, I find myself occasionally wandering towards the lighter side of life, which led me first to Croissants and Jam by Lynda Renham, which I loved, and then more recently to this, her latest novel. I absolutely loved it – although watch out! The language is a little rude at times!

The novel is a thoroughly grand romp, which sees Alice, our heroine, going outside her comfort zone and exchanging the shiny city and her designer heels for the smelly countryside and muddy boots. I challenge anyone not to laugh out loud at her well-meaning but misguided attempts to fit in and I bet you can’t get through the novel without rushing off for a giant bag of Maltesers. I’m not going to tell you why. This is a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day, and it is certainly worthwhile sharing Alice’s adventures in the countryside – not least because all of us around here know what living in the country is like!
