Book review: A Rural Affair by Catherine Alliott

That comes when she finds out who Phil really was and what he was up to. I am not a chick lit kind of reader but this book was one I really enjoyed. When a woman comes to her door cayherine the funeral, Poppy learns that her marriage was an even bigger sham than she thought and spirals downward. Poppy tries hard to be properly sad and grieving but she is happy to move on with her life especially when she finds out that perf Poppy Shilling has been fantasizing about killing off her prig of a husband for a while.

I do like Catherine alliott and definitely think that her books have got better over the years.

I am looking forward to Alliott’s A Crowded Marriage. Because I really don’t know if she managed that. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Very enjoyable read, like Jilly Cooper with less sex and Joanna Trollope with more laughs.

Ships from and sold by Bahamut Media. Poppy is a young wife and mother who has settled into a lacklustre marriage to Phil, a man she doesn’t really like but who fits the bill as a family provider, although a tight-fisted oneand a less-than-doting father.

The Below Country 10 Oct, 5: I loved the characters in this book. Poppy Shilling never thought life would come to this catheriine raising her two children and taking care of the household on her own, while her husband Phil is always off working or cycling or handing out his passive-aggressive lists of things for her to do. Ok, including a particular incident during the hunting scene laliott not have been the best idea, but I really did enjoy this book from beginning to end.

Sep 21, Brandy rated it did not like it. What a fun book!! The first of these novels Catherine started under the desk when she worked as an advertising copywriter. I loved the main character and her Dad she was very easy to relate to, it was great watching her bumble through her emotions and find herself in the end.

She’s also very good at writing interesting secondary characters. It was much heavier than the later bits, which at times were quite amusing. With time on her hands, she persevered with the novels, which happily flourished. Customers who bought this item also bought. My Husband Next Door.
