Newly widowed Poppy Shilling should be feeling distraught at the death of her husband, Phil. But, instead, she can't help feeling relieved. No longer will she have to endure Phil's iron fist ruling over her and their two young children, or his unfortunate penchant for lycra cycling wear. What's more, when a secret is revealed after his death, Poppy's memories of their life together are turned upside down. Freed from the shackles of her loveless marriage, Poppy is determined not to make the same mistakes again. Fully embracing village life, she becomes the object of the local menfolk's affections - from Bob, the resident odd ball, to Luke, the sexy church organist. But it's just her luck that the one man who catches her eye can't seem to let go of his glamorous ex wife...Will Poppy have the courage to follow her heart and refuse to settle for second best? It's time for a new beginning, and a chance to discover what real love feels like...

I rarely read something that makes me laugh out loud, but this little gem had me in stitches on several occasions. Best described as "rollicking good fun", this is a perfect example of romantic comedy in the tradition of Jilly Cooper. Set in the English countyside with hilarious accounts of horses, book clubs, hunt balls, romances, sex and misadventures it will keep you intrigued and entertained.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a light read, "commercial fiction" but really hard to put down. Quite funny. I love novels set in English villages, with lots of detail about life there; shops, cottages, life, etc. This one has a horsey side to it, as well. A good grown-up chic-lit / village cosy.
