Sarah Broadhurst's view...
This author, who started her writing career with light frothy capers, has matured. Astute, feel-good, irresistibly readable, this is a tale of village infighting wonderfully observed. Full of true-to-life characters, a scenario you care about and large dollops of comedy, it’s a tale of modern rural life delivered with charm. You’ll love it. Did you know she is Auberon’s daughter, so Evelyn’s granddaughter?
Bed of Roses by Daisy Waugh
Fanny Flynn is short-tempered, flirtatious, impulsive and restless. When she falls into the job as Head Teacher of Fiddleford primary school it feels more like a last resort than another new beginning.
Fiddleford is a beautiful village deep in the West Country, but the tiny school is heading for ruin and unless Fanny can transform it, it will be closed for ever.
Locked in a feud with one mother, and stalked by Geraldine and Clive, the pushy Londoners from the Old Rectory, and Kitty, the predatory children's author, Fanny needs all her brilliance to survive. She's a great teacher, and the villagers all claim to be behind her. But are they really? Before long the entire village is at war...
Fanny finds she has fallen in love with her village and country life and together with Louis, her deliciously handsome best friend, and Solomon Creasey, an attractive but crooked art dealer, she vows to surprise her critics.
