Farm Fatale: A Comedy of Country Manors

Farm Fatale: A Comedy of Country Manors Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rosie and Mark, a couple living in chic urban squalor, pine for the rustic bliss of country life. Newly minted, Samantha and Guy want the same thing-on a somewhat grander scale. The four converge on the quaint village of Eight Mile Bottom. With its eccentric residents, including a reclusive rock star, a nosy postman, a foxy farmer, and one ghost with a knife in its back, the two couples are soon swept up in various romantic entanglements, mix-ups, slipups, and unlikely seductions in their search for ever-greener pastures.

Farm Fatale is another witty, irresistible gem from a hip and savvy author.

Review:

"Holden...delivers another sharp and witty romance featuring British manners, money, and an entertaining mix of diverse characters converging in unlikely places....Holden's wry wit will appeal to fans of Bridget Jones's Diary and other lightweight British chick books." Diana Tixier Herald, Booklist

Review:

"Every character here is deliciously ridiculous, and every rustic detail a grand satirical opportunity." Baltimore Sun

Review:

"[An] energetic, witty tale....With enjoyable if limited characters and a wonderfully awful-to-watch side plot involving the truly horrible 'Sasha Villiers' (her 'stage' name), this lighthearted romp, surprisingly unpredictable, smart and fun, is refreshing fare readers can turn to when they're tired of lifeless Bridget clones." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Clever, naughty....A comic romp that will have fans glued." The Sunday Times (London)

Synopsis:

From the bestselling author of "Simply Divine": two city couples converge on the quaint village of Eight Mile Bottom and are soon swept up in romantic entanglements, mix-ups, slipups, and unlikely seductions in their search for ever-greener pastures.
