Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is so early Jilly Cooper stuff, it’s delicious; Cotswold village life, an influential family and a clutch of over-the-top characters – you’ll love it. Sex, scandal, deceit and lots of surprises all add up to one great big romp. It’s part of a series set in Honeycote – I recommend them all.

Comparison: Victoria Clayton, Plum Sykes, Julian Fellows.

If you like Veronica Henry you might also like to read books by erica james, Julian Fellowes and Christina Jones.

Synopsis

Just a Family Affair by Veronica Henry

In the Gloucestershire village of Honeycote, country life is anything but quiet. Maybe it's something to do with all that fresh air, but it's the kind of place where passions run high...

The Liddiard family are well known in Honeycote - and now there is to be a big wedding. But will everything go according to plan? Lucy Liddiard knows her husband is no saint, but isn't prepared for his latest confession. Bride-to-be Mandy has no idea what joining the Liddiards really means. And local girl Mayday, wild child, rebel and free spirit, is thinking the unthinkable - with unimaginable consequences . . .

Just a Family Affair is a glorious, all-consuming story about finding out the truth, finding a husband, or perhaps just finding yourself.
