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.
