Veronica Henry novels are always a joy and this one is no exception. Suzanna Blake is struggling to get her life back on track after the death of her child and when her husband suggests moving to the country to run a pub. Even for the seasoned city dwellers, village life is eye opening and certainly never dull! Makes me want to pack up and move to the country, great fun.

If you like Veronica Henry you might also like to read books by Judy Astley, Claudia Carroll and Julian Fellowes.

Synopsis

Making Hay by Veronica Henry

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.

Newly separated Ginny Tait arrived in Honeycote at around the same time - with very nubile twin daughters and an awful lot of baggage.

If the newcomers expected to find a sleepy English village, they quickly discover that a whole host of colourful characters have long woken up to more interesting ways of using the bedroom. Throw in a dodgy businessman with a secret past, and Honeycote is soon a veritable hotbed of passion and intrigue.

Will Ginny be blinded by choice and go for Mr Wrong again? Will Suzanna and Barney find happiness in Honeycote? And if they do, will it be with each other?

An intoxicating blend of true live and hidden agendas Making Hay proves once and for all that village life doesn't necessarily mean the quiet life ...
