    Thoroughly enjoyable English village romance

    Cassie Beresford is feeling pretty smug. She's happily married to practically her first boyfriend, living her dream life in a modern house with two children and about to step into her dream job as deputy head of the local secondary school. Then a drunken friend announces to the entire audience at a charity dinner auction that Cassie's husband has been having an affair with his wife (Cassie's best friend for almost as long as she has known her husband) for the past two years. Suddenly the life that was so different from her hippy mother's is disintegrating around her ears. Suddenly alone, she finds out that she has been promoted to acting head after the head teacher died of a heart attack. Then, when things can't seem to get any worse, she finds out that local landowners are planning to build 3,000 homes on a beautiful piece of land backing onto her grandfather's house that he has planted with wildflowers and has become known as his field as a result. Cassie is dealing with her grandfather, her hippy mother, her goth daughter, recalcitrant parents and children at the school, the school governors, her ex-BFF and her ex-husband and the realisation that she may have over-compensated for her what she perceives as the short-comings of her childhood. I really enjoyed this novel, it had enough characters to be interesting, enough red herrings to make the love interest a surprise, enough plot to move the story along and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

    Superbly Funny!

    Cassie Beresford is looking forward to a night out with her husband, her friends and their partners. About to begin her new job as deputy head teacher, the last thing she needs is her life imploding .. but hey, this is just the beginning! This is the first I've read this author, and her writing is so very funny! I have shaken with laughter in bed, spluttered various cups of coffee and even had a coughing fit from inhaling toast whilst enjoying this book. With the basis of a good story and engaging characters, this is a very enjoyable read but it's the humour which turns it into something special. Well written and superbly funny, this is one I'm not only happy to recommend but I intend to check out the rest of this author's novels. The thought struck me about half way through that tv sit coms have a Julie Houston shaped gap . . . My thanks to publisher Aria for my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
