Abandoning the urban rat-race for organic strawberry growing, Pamela and Dave have their problems and then Pamela’s lusts get the better of her. I really loved this, it is such an addictive read. Astute, sensitive and light, she’s so good. Do read her first, Three in a Bed, too, it’s a gem.
Five years of IVF still haven’t brought Pamela and Dave the baby they long for. Their marriage is now so rocky, they need hiking boots and ice picks just to negotiate dinner. So they probably shouldn’t be moving out of
London for office-bound softie Dave to follow his dream of running an organic strawberry farm. Especially as out there in the countryside is devastatingly handsome farmer, Lachlan Murray.
While Dave takes up weeding and becomes obsessed with manure, Pamela wonders if she should escape to Lachlan’s 4x4. Although there is Lachlan’s wife, Rosie, to consider. Her London friends think she’s gone insane, but they don’t know just how far Pamela is prepared to go for a baby.
How Was it For You? is a wildly entertaining novel of sex life, country life, strawberries and cream.
