A new home, a new circle of friends, a new chance at happiness?
Suzanna and Barney Blake are swapping city life for the countryside, determined to breathe new life into the Honeycote Arms and a marriage touched by tragedy.
Recently separated Ginny Tait is also seeking solace in country living, desperate to rein in her rambunctious twin daughters.
They all think that moving to a calm, quiet and beautiful village in the Cotswolds will solve their problems. But in Honeycote, things are never quite as they appear . . .
Full of fun, warmth and style, A Country Life is the second book in the Honeycote trio, which also includes A Country Christmas and A Country Wedding. Each can be read as a standalone, or they can be read as a series.
